Global High Bandwidth Ethernet Market - 2022-2029
The global high bandwidth ethernet market reached US$ XX million in 2021 and is expected to reach US$ XX million by 2029, growing at a CAGR of XX% during the forecast period 2022-2029.
Ethernet is the conventional technology for connecting devices in a wired local area network or wide area network. It is the most frequently used technology because of its broad usability, making it easy to implement, understand, maintain and allow low-cost network implementation. The increased need for a fast, scalable and reliable communication medium for IoT components and the surge in applications of automotive and industrial industries are the primary drivers driving the growth of the high bandwidth ethernet market.
The high bandwidth ethernet has been growing for the following reasons: around 20 billion to 30 billion online IoT devices worldwide throughout this decade. Users will own over 25 million 5G-capable devices by 2021 and more than 80% of IP traffic will be bandwidth-hungry latency-sensitive video content. By 2021 hyperscale data centers will increase from 338 at the end of 2016 to 628, representing 53% of all installed data-center servers by 2021.
The global high bandwidth ethernet is boosted by the need for uninterrupted connectivity with high security.
Need for uninterrupted connectivity with high security
Customers can benefit from high-bandwidth Ethernet connectivity since it is cost-effective and dependable. Its capabilities can support cloud-centric architectures and digital transformation projects with higher coverage. Recent research revealed that 96% of clients prioritize strategic digital transformation projects. High-bandwidth Ethernet provides customers with consistent and dependable connectivity to help them achieve corporate success and growth.
The technology reduces waiting times, assures uninterrupted communication, improves user experience and lowers costs. In a local network, Gigabit Ethernet links computers and servers. Because of the advances in data transmission speed and cabling, many businesses have switched from fast ethernet to gigabit ethernet for wired local networks. Moreover, an ethernet connection is far more secure than Wi-Fi. Data on an Ethernet network can only be accessed by physically connecting a device to the network. In contrast, data on a Wi-Fi network is transmitted over the air and can be intercepted more readily.
Prsence of alternatives
Ethernet has been refined to support greater nodes, higher bit rates and longer link distances but retains much backward compatibility. The market has witnessed various direct and indirect alternatives, hampering market growth. Over time, Ethernet has largely replaced competing wired LAN technologies such as FDDI, Token Ring and ARCNET.
While 5G is some time away for consumers, the newest technology is expected to replace the home broadband service. The market has already been trialed in the U.S and demonstrates that the user can eliminate the use of cables laid to enjoy fast internet speeds. The technology may not be considered a direct replacement but a better option for people who can access sufficient signals.
COVID-19 Impact Analysis
COVID-19 has positively impacted the global high bandwidth ethernet market due to the rising culture for work from home. Since the COVID-19 crisis, demand for broadband communication services has soared, with operators experiencing up to 60% growth in internet traffic compared to before the crisis. Network operators and content providers have successfully sustained services and efficiently used pre-existing capacity and, in certain cases, expanded this capacity.
Customers can scale the solution to fit their requirements, accessing more bandwidth as needed. During the pandemic, it has been a vital lifeline for businesses as online retailers and service providers have required more network capacity to support their business. Recent research revealed that 62% of customers had demanded more bandwidth since the pandemic. Consumers are considering using ethernet solutions because of their flexibility, which has allowed companies to future-proof businesses.
The global high bandwidth ethernet market is segmented based on offering, virtual connection, port speed, end-user and region.
Advancements in autonomous and automated driving will boost the need for high bandwidth ethernet in the automotive sector
Based on end-user, the global high bandwidth ethernet market is segmented into automotive & transportation, electrical & electronics, aerospace & defense, oil & gas, chemicals, food & beverages, energy & power and others.
Ethernet is used for in-vehicle communication, calibration and measurement, diagnostics via DoIP and communication between charging stations and electric vehicles. Further drivers for in-vehicle Ethernet are the forthcoming ADAS functions for autonomous and automated driving and infotainment use cases. Ethernet is also a data backbone in E/E architectures, linking the various communication domains. Every automaker faces difficulty developing electronics networks that can handle the high-bandwidth communications and quicker data throughput required for routing data from sensors, controllers and interfaces in EVs, ADAS and self-driving vehicles. The backbone of these new systems is automotive Ethernet switches. Switches play a key role in the electronic control units of these networks, from highly centralized architectures powered by high-performance computers to more distributed, zonal architectures.
Companies are launching new products to support automation in the automotive industry. For instance, in 2021, Elektrobit announced the industry's first Automotive Ethernet switch firmware enabling secure, high-performance communications in-vehicle networks. The EB zone SwitchCore will make it easier for carmakers and their suppliers to construct the sophisticated, high-bandwidth communications systems next-generation vehicles require.
The need for stable internet connection for the industrial sector is expected to boost demand in Asia-Pacific
The immediate need for a stable internet connection for the industrial sector can be considered the key driver of high-bandwidth ethernet market expansion. The region is becoming the most significant manufacturing hub for automotive and tech manufacturers. Companies in the region utilize advanced automation systems to increase efficiency and compete with other global competitors, requiring extremely reliable communication networks for machine-to-machine communication in their factories. The region's market is presently undergoing significant upgrades and the installation of new infrastructure, necessitating an enormous number of ethernet applications.
As automated and connected automobiles are becoming more common in dealerships, high-bandwidth networks will be required to support these data-intensive functions. Recently, Hyundai pledged to provide faster ethernet connectivity for the core of its next-generation vehicle. Using ethernet of up to 1 gigabit per second, the company would accelerate innovation, deliver 'over the air upgrades and shorten the life cycle in bringing new capabilities to market. Hyundai began its ethernet-powered vehicles sales in 2019 in partnership with Cisco.
