Global Application Delivery Network (ADN) Market 2017-2021

Global Application Delivery Network (ADN) Market 2017-2021

About Application Delivery Network

An ADN provides application availability, security, visibility, and acceleration. It is a combination of WAN optimization controller (WOC), application delivery controller (ADC), application security equipment, and application gateway. An ADN monitors the web traffic and distributes traffic among all the servers. An ADN acts as a WOC, which reduces the number of bits over the network using caching and compression techniques. Some WOCs are installed on PCs or mobile clients, while others are installed in the data center.

Technavio’s analysts forecast the global application delivery network market to grow at a CAGR of 11.14% during the period 2017-2021.

Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Application Delivery Network Market 2017-2021

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global application delivery network market: Citrix Systems, F5 Networks, and Radware.

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: A10 Networks, Akamai Technologies, Barracuda Networks, Brocade Communications systems, Fortinet, HPE, Juniper Networks, and Riverbed Technology.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “The latest trend gaining momentum in the market is High adoption of SaaS applications by enterprises. The adoption of SaaS across the globe for a wide variety of application areas demands business agility. SaaS applications provide a strong adoption and steady growth. SaaS applications include enterprise resource planning and business intelligence for segments such as human resource management (HRM), customer relationship management (CRM), and procurement solutions. Thus, the adoption of SaaS will increase and drive the growth of the global ADN market during the forecast period. The use of SaaS is about 30% in the UK and 25% in Germany. At present, the use of SaaS in IT enterprises is about 60%, with Google Apps comprising 30%, Dropbox 23%, and Microsoft Office 38%.”

According to the report, one of the major drivers for this market is Increased adoption of cloud applications. In the past few years, businesses have started operating using cloud-based applications such as SharePoint, Dropbox, and Microsoft Office. Cloud-based applications remain an integral part of all the enterprises adopting cloud-based services. Traditional data centers refer to hardware that stores data on the premises within organizations in a business. Cloud-based data center is an off-premises form of computing data that is stored in the Internet. The challenges in the cloud-based data centers include insecurity in private, public, and hybrid clouds. The need for security is more important in cloud-based data centers. This need for security provides ADNs an opportunity to manage the security, addressing visibility, and performance needs of the businesses.

Further, the report states that one of the major factors hindering the growth of this market is Loss of data packets in the networks. The major challenge for the ADN market is the efficient management of data being transmitted from the end-user systems to the computing devices. For every transmission of data from the servers to the end-user systems, there is a need for routing the computing results. Data packets might get lost during the transmission process. This leads to the retransmission of data packets from the server to the end-user, which increases the workload. Thus, there is a delay in the transmission, and the increased burden for the routing process increases the work of the controller as well. This delay and loss of data packets is a challenge for ADNs.
