“Increasing number of smartphones and internet users is expected to drive the Content Delivery Network (CDN) market”
MarketsandMarkets forecasts the global Content Delivery Network (CDN) market to grow from USD 7.47 billion in 2017 to USD 30.89 billion by 2022, at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 32.8% during the forecast period. The market is growing rapidly due to increasing digitization and the surplus volume of video content available over the internet. Latency and connectivity issues are restraining the market growth.
“Video CDN is expected to hold the largest market share during the forecast period”
All organizations across verticals are creating video contents to attract their customers. This is resulting in more video contents on company websites and other related sites. The high quality video needs to be delivered to the user irrespective of the location and distance between the content creator and users. Here, CDN plays a vital role by using the geographically distributed network of connected servers.
“Asia Pacific (APAC) provides attractive growth opportunities and is expected to grow at the highest CAGR.“
APAC offers growth opportunities. The main factors driving the growth in the region include the increasing consumption of cloud services, rising adoption of mobile and smartphone devices, and high consumption of video over portable devices. APAC holds significant potential for the adoption of CDN solutions due to growing IT infrastructure and consumption of video and non-video contents over the social media. More people are aware of the usage of internet and prefer to view information online, which further boosts the growth of CDN solutions leading to the highest growth rate in the APAC region.
