Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Network Interface Cards Market 2017-2021

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global network interface cards market: StarTech.com, Allied Telesis, and AVM International.

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: StarTech.com (Canada); Allied Telesis (Japan), AVM International (Norway), Brainboxes (UK), COMMELL (Taiwan), D-Link (Taiwan), Echelon (US), Molex (US), and Opto 22 (US).

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “The latest trend gaining momentum in the market is Emergence of PoE and PLC. Installing a cable, which is costly and not always possible, is one of the major disadvantages of wired communication. Power line communication (PLC) and power over Ethernet (PoE) provide a better option to wired networks. PLC does not require any wiring, and a power source is always present, which can be accessed remotely. Even though wireless networks can provide the same attributes, they are less secure, and the wireless signal quality gets hampered because of obstacles such as concrete floors and walls.”

According to the report, one of the major drivers for this market is Growing demand for data centers. The development of advanced technologies such as cloud-based services and big data analytics has increased the demand for data centers worldwide. Currently, developed countries, such as the US, are the largest markets for data center operations. However, the number of data centers in developing countries, such as China, India, and Brazil, has increased considerably, which is fueling the adoption of network switch and router products in these countries. Network equipment such as Ethernet switches and routers play a vital role in the operations of data centers regarding the availability of resources to the end-users without latency. Therefore, data center operators are expected to adopt 10GbE and 40GbE to cope with the increasing business demands. With the large-scale adoption of switches and routers, there has been an increasing demand for network interface cards from switches and modems vendors.

Further, the report states that one of the major factors hindering the growth of this market is Slowdown in sales of PCs. The slowdown in sales of PCs, laptops, notebooks, and Ultrabooks has been a major challenge for semiconductor foundries. Desktops have seen a steady decline over the years, which has affected the revenue of firms such as IBM and Intel. The total worldwide shipment of PCs dropped to almost 13% in the first quarter of 2016, which was a major source of concern for PC manufacturers.
