Japan Datacenter Networks Forecast, 2017−2021: Datacenter Ethernet Switch and Application Delivery Controller

This IDC study provides the market forecast from 2017 to 2021 and the future outlook for the Japan datacenter network equipment market, which comprises datacenter Ethernet switches, application delivery controller (ADC), and WAN optimization. With increasing and continued use of cloud and mobile devices, the need for datacenters is growing, but on the other hand, the datacenter network equipment market is entering a low-growth era because of market maturity and emergence of new threats. With the impact of cloud migration on the overall IT market, the market environment for the Japan datacenter network equipment market and vendors' competitive landscape are also changing."Network equipment vendors should shift the focus of their product strategies to products that are suitable for cloud and are easy to control in a software-defined network (SDN) environment instead of resisting against the strong flow toward cloud migration and SDN. On the other hand, they should not neglect to continue the provision of traditional products, which are still the source of their revenue," said Kenichi Kusano, group manager, Communications, IDC Japan.
