Transparent Caching Market by Content Type, Software (Policy Management, Security, and Analytics), Hardware (Converged Servers and Switches), Service (Professional and Managed), End-user, and Region - Global Forecast to 2022
“Transparent caching market projected to grow at a CAGR of 37.28%”
The global transparent caching market is expected to grow from USD 876.6 million in 2017 to USD 4,274.2 million by 2022, at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 37.28%. Need for improved network bandwidth is driving the transparent caching market. With an increase in demand for live online videos across the globe, and access to other media and entertainment services provided over OTT by content delivery providers, results in network congestion. Installation of caches can help service providers to overcome the problem of network congestion, and offer popular content on the network.

“Policy management segment is expected to have the largest market share during the forecast period.”
The software segment in the transparent caching market includes policy management, security, and analytics. In the policy management segment, transparent caching software providing policy management, helps service providers to manage the network by caching popular web content inside its network and deliver the content on users request using a local server.

Users may not access the cached files on the disk regularly, or even the file is not at all accessed, resulting in heap of non-hot resource files on the disk after the system is used for a certain period of time. Transparent caching solutions automatically clean the disk when it reaches to the pre-set threshold. These solutions uses advanced algorithm to precisely select and remove the files which are not requested.
