The Global Edge Computing Market is estimated to be USD 4.9 Bn in 2021 and is expected to reach USD 14.01 Bn by 2026, growing at a CAGR of 23.2%.

Key factors such as increasing penetration of the Internet of Things (IoT), the development of edge Artificial Intelligence (AI) due to the increase in the number of connected devices have been a driving force for the growth of the edge computing market. The increasing demand for low-latency processing & real-time access, automated decision-making solutions, and a need for surmounting the increasing data volumes & network traffic are factors responsible for the growing adoption of edge computing.

Although edge computing might reduce data transmission and storage costs through localized processing, but investing in edge infrastructure creates pressure on the CAPEX of companies, thus high initial CAPEX for infrastructure has been a hindrance for the edge computing market. The emergence of autonomous vehicles and connected cars and the need for lightweight frameworks and systems to enhance the efficiency of edge computing solutions are expected to create a number of opportunities for edge computing vendors.

Market Dynamics

  • Growing Adoption of IoT Across Industries
  • Rising Demand for Low-Latency Processing and Real-Time, Automated Decision-Making Solutions
  • Surmounting Exponentially Increasing Data Volumes and Network Traffic
  • High Installation Costs
  • The emergence of Autonomous Vehicles and Connected Car Infrastructure
  • Lightweight Frameworks and Systems to Enhance Efficiency of Edge Computing Solutions
  • Vulnerability Issues with Edge Nodes
  • Remote Offices Equipped with Own Servers and Storage On-Site
Segments Covered

By Component, the Hardware segment is estimated to hold the highest market share. Hardware components are procured on a large scale basis for decentralizing and various computing operations. Hardware enables inclusive edge infrastructure deployment and decreases network traffic.

By Application, the Smart Cities application is estimated to hold the highest market share. Edge computing in smart cities extends the security of the buildings in the cities, provides automated functions in the home, and enhances the traffic management in the smart city to tackle the heavy traffic. Due to rising investments by Government, Smart infrastructure will see a significant rise during the forecast period; and similarly, the market for edge computing will rise.

By Organization Size, Large Enterprises is estimated to hold the highest market share during the forecast period. Edge computing is required in large enterprises due to the increased generation of data because of widespread geographical presence and customer base. Moreover, there is an increasing demand to access computing resources and applications ubiquitously while ensuring proper data storage by employees of large enterprises. This, in turn, drives the demand for edge computing solutions among large enterprises.

By Vertical, the Financial and Banking Industry sector is estimated to hold the highest market share. The popularity of blockchain technology in the industry and mobile payments has been driving the edge computing market for BFSI. Seamless and easy digital payment methods with maximum security and processing speeds act as critical elements for enhancing the digital banking experience. As a result, several banks are implementing different payment apps and services compatible with smart mobile devices. Thus edge computing market for the BFSI industry is likely to grow during the forecast period.

By Geography, Asia-Pacific is projected to lead the market. The factors attributed to the growth of the region is the rapid growth of mobile services and the increase in operating cost pressure. The telecom industry in the region has taken measures to improve user experience, increase profits, optimize network operation, and enhance resource utilization efficiency by introducing new technologies and products. Also, the increasing investments by major industry players into research and development in this region is pushing the demand for edge computing upwards.

The Global Edge Computing Market is segmented further based on the Component, Application, Organization Size, Vertical, and Geography.
