The Software Defined WAN Market size is estimated to grow from USD 738.9 Million in 2016 to USD 9,066.2 Million by 2021, at an estimated Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 65.11%.

Central network management, integration of traditional WAN or existing network into SD-WAN, reducing data congestion, and simple & user-friendly network management are some of the emerging aspects increasing the demand for SD-WAN solutions. The report aims at estimating the market size and future growth potential of the SD-WAN market across different segments by component, deployment type, technology service, industry vertical, and region. The base year considered for the study is 2015 and the forecast period is from 2016 to 2021.

The research methodology used to estimate and forecast the Software Defined WAN Market begins with capturing data on key vendor revenues through secondary research, such as Computer Science & Engineering Association (CSEA), International Data Corporation (IDC), and company financials. The vendors’ offerings are also taken into consideration to determine the market segmentation. The bottom-up procedure was employed to arrive at the overall market size of the global SD-WAN market from the revenue of the key players in the market. After arriving at the overall market size, the total market was split into several segments and subsegments, which were then verified through primary research by conducting extensive interviews with key people, such as CEOs, VPs, directors, and executives. The data triangulation and market breakdown procedures were employed to complete the overall market engineering process and arrive at the exact statistics for all segments. The breakdown of profiles of primary participants is depicted in the below figure:

The Software Defined WAN Market is expected to grow from USD 738.9 Million in 2016 to USD 9,066.2 Million by 2021, at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 65.11% during the forecast period. A rising need for SD-WAN solutions, effective management of network, and need of security are increasing the demand for SD-WAN in the market.

The SD-WAN market is segmented by components, deployment types, technology services, verticals, and regions. The SD-WAN market segmented based on components installed at enterprises and in branches includes virtual appliances, physical appliances, and hybrid. The physical appliances have the largest market share in 2016.  Physical appliances are directly installed in the premises of end-users and assist in laying a foundation for the network connections at the end-users’ premises. Having physical appliances deployed, enterprises can move to a broadband WAN at their own pace, whether site-by-site, or via a hybrid WAN.

The Software Defined WAN Market by deployment type comprises on-premises and on cloud. On–premises deployment helps in upgrading the in-house capabilities of enterprises solutions, such as firewall and remote site surveillance. The on-cloud solution provides easy provision for deploying advanced cloud-based solutions, such as high quality internet and highly-secured access. The on-cloud-based services are expected to become the largest segment by 2021. An increasing demand for SD-WAN cloud-based services is driving the market.

Software Defined WAN Market is also segmented on basis of type of services that are utilized and deployed to the end-users, such as managed services and professional services. Managed services have the largest market share in 2016. Managed services provide a combination of SDN-WAN solutions to end-users, which helps in reducing the overall cost of operations and makes them more flexible. They also provide seamless integration of WAN and branch networks to provide end-to-end solutions to end-users.

The Software Defined WAN Market is segmented on the basis of verticals into Banking, Financial Services & Insurance (BFSI), retail, healthcare, government, manufacturing, and others, including oil & gas, mining, and logistics & transportation. In 2016, the retail vertical is expected to have the highest market share. Since improving the operational efficiency has become one of the key elements of the enterprise strategies, the demand for providing high-speed internet and strong network coverage is increasing rapidly.

North America is expected to have the largest market share in 2016, whereas the Asia-Pacific (APAC) region is expected to grow at the highest CAGR from 2016 to 2021 in the Software Defined WAN Market. The major growth factors that would drive the adoption of SD-WAN include the increasing need to central network management and reducing the operating cost. Since APAC is the fastest growing region and represents the investors with immense opportunities of growth, a lot of the companies are investing in this region.

Software Defined Wide Area Network Market

The Software Defined WAN Market lacks in security standards, such as lack of network synchronization and security administration at every level of the network. The key vendors in the SD-WAN market are Cisco Systems, Inc. (U.S.), Citrix Systems, Inc. (U.S.), Aryaka Networks, Inc. (U.S.), CloudGenix, Inc. (U.S.), Ecessa Corporation (U.S.), Silver Peak Systems, Inc. (U.S.), VeloCloud, Viptela, Inc. (U.S.), Elfiq Networks, Inc. (Canada), Peplink (Hong Kong), and Versa Networks (U.S.). These players have adopted various strategies, such as new product developments, acquisitions, and partnerships to serve the Software Defined WAN Market.
