"Spending on network orchestration and management products and services will grow to USD11.6 billion in 2021 propelled by NFV/SDN orchestration and control."

Traditional network management systems (NMS) spending growth has slowed to a CAGR of 1.5% (2016–2021), sustained by CSPs' investments in fixed networks, new IoT/M2M networks, and element management systems (EMS) used to manage VNFs. Network orchestration and software-defined network (SDN) control spending will grow quickly to surpass USD1 billion by 2019; with VIM growing to about half that figure in 2019.


a detailed, 5-year worldwide forecast for spending in the network orchestration and management software systems market, split into:

  • traditional NMS sub-segments: consumer mobile, consumer fixed, business mobile, and business fixed
  • virtual next-generation NMS (vNGN-NMS) network management and orchestration (NOM) sub-segments: network orchestration (NO), SDN controllers (SDN-C) and virtual infrastructure management (VIM)
  • two delivery types: product-related and professional services
  • eight geographical regions: Central and Eastern Europe (CEE); developed Asia–Pacific (DVAP), emerging Asia–Pacific (EMAP); Latin America (LATAM); the Middle East and North Africa (MENA); North America (NA); Sub-Saharan Africa (SSA) and Western Europe (WE).
