Content Delivery Network (CDN) is a geographically dispersed network of cache or proxy servers, which helps the organizations to store their web page or contents near the location of their customers. This enables the organizations to deliver content efficiently to their target customers with better QoE. The cache server represents itself as an original server to users and intercepts and manages internet requests for users. The CDN replicates or store multiple copies of content or media (streaming audio, video, and Internet television(IPTV), web pages, applications, and software) on strategically dispersed servers at different locations. Storing the replica of content help organizations to remove the data load from their source servers and speed up the delivery of content requested by multiple clients at the same time, securely and efficiently.

Some of the key vendors occupying the market are Akamai Technologies, Level3 communications, Limelight networks Inc., Internap, Ericsson, Highwinds, and Chinacache.

The recent improvement in bandwidth cost has vastly increased the consumption of internet across different regions; however, its limited availability has given rise to traffic congestion and latency issues. This has led to the complexities for the organizations whose business depends on web page performance, load time, and delivery of content over the internet. Some businesses that depend on the number of clicks received and visitors on their web page need to have seamless and scalable delivery of their web page or content and uninterrupted downloading capacity. These issues have enabled organizations to utilize CDN to deliver better quality of experience (QoE) and quality of services (QoS) to their customers. Today, 50% volume of content consumed over the internet, globally, is served by CDNs. Thus, proportion of the internet traffic served by CDNs is expected to grow more than 60% by 2020.

Rising volume of data traffic, growing video streaming, and proliferation of rich media files over the internet are responsible for the growth of the Content Delivery Network market. However, CDN faces challenges such as latency issues and constant monetization of websites and applications. Moreover, the increasing demand for cloud services, emergence of federated CDNs, and emergence of mobile CDNs are the major factors which would drive the CDN market in the future. The major factor enabling adoption of CDN among the enterprises are increasing trends of Bring Your Own Device (BYOD), Chose Your Own Device (CYOD), digitalization, delivery of software and application and other content with better QoS and QoE. The adoption of CDN in SMBs is low but it is expected to increase during the forecast period.

The North American region is dominating the CDN market in 2015. The deployment of CDN in e-commerce, media and entertainment, advertisement, online gaming, ISPs, and other verticals is in huge numbers. Growing demand for cloud services and consumption of video over portable devices in countries across APAC, Latin American, and MEA regions are contributing towards the growth of the CDN market. The continuous growth in the integration of various cloud services is further encouraging market growth.

Major players in the Content Delivery Network market are Akamai Technologies, Level3 communications, Limelight networks Inc., Intrenap, Ericsson, Highwinds, and Chinacache. These companies offer high-performance CDN solutions such as web performance optimization, media delivery, cloud storage and data security, transparent caching, transcoding and DRM, and analytics and monitoring. The global market is further segmented on the basis of solutions, service provider types, organization sizes, verticals, and regions. The market is segmented on the basis of regions comprising North America, APAC, Europe, Latin America, and MEA.
