Worldwide Carrier Routing Equipment Forecast, 2018–2022
This IDC study presents the worldwide market forecast for carrier routing network equipment for 2017–2022. Carrier routing network equipment sales to carrier SPs are forecast to grow from $11.6 billion in 2017 to $13.8 billion by the end of 2022 at a CAGR of 3.5%."After two years (2015-2016) of strong growth driven by mobile network buildouts in Asia/Pacific, the core routing market moderated in 2017, in line with IDC expectations articulated in the document outlining the 2016-2021 forecast. IDC, however, expects it to pick up pace ahead of the 5G rollout in the 2019 and beyond time frame. IDC expects the edge routing segment to continue the healthy growth seen in 2017 through 2018 spurred by cloud connectivity, broadband internet access, mobile access, mobile backhaul, and datacenter interconnect use cases." — Rajesh Ghai, research director, Carrier Network Infrastructure
