Request For Special Pricing

The global Network Function Virtualization market size is projected to grow from USD 12.9 billion in 2019 to USD 36.3 billion by 2024, at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 22.9% during the forecast period. The major factors driving the NFV market include the growing need for advanced network management systems to handle the increasing network traffic and complexities.

Network Function Virtualization (NFV) Market

The virtual appliance segment to record a higher growth rate during the forecast period

Virtual appliance primarily includes various networking operations, including traffic forwarding, traffic monitoring, security, caching, intrusion detection system, and domain name service, among others. These operations are widely carried over Virtual Customer Premise equipment (VCPe) over the edge. This has considerably affected the enterprises to streamline their network complexities, and thus, the segment is expected to record decent momentum in the coming years.

The orchestration and automation segment to hold the largest market size during the forecast period

Orchestration and automation comprise several components, which include Software-Defined Networking (SDN) controllers, virtual infrastructure managers, NFV orchestrator, and Wide Area Network (WAN) configuration, among others. The main task of orchestration is to automate and enhance network service creation through a combination of Virtualized Network Functions (VNFs), scaling, self-healing, and resource lifecycle management of network services. VNFs interact with service orchestrators when there are no cross-domain network orchestrators. Owing to orchestration and automation usability and criticality, its deployment is witnessed on a large scale specifically when there is no vendor lock-in and the solutions are customized and off the shelves.

Under end users, the enterprise vertical to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period

The enterprise customers are rapidly adopting NFV, as it offers significant benefits such as improved network efficiency through centralized management, enhanced IT agility, and network customization through fast and reliable application services. The enterprise customers have been categorized into various verticals, such as Banking, Financial Services, and Insurance (BFSI), manufacturing, retail, healthcare, education, transportation and logistics, energy and utilities, and others which includes hospitality, transportation and logistics, media and entertainment, and utilities. In the present scenario, the deployment of NFV is prevalent across BFSI, retail, manufacturing, and healthcare verticals.

Network Function Virtualization (NFV) Market

North America to lead the global Network Function Virtualization market in 2019

North America is estimated to account for the major share of the NFV market in 2019. It is a market with high growth potential in NFV. The NFV market in North America is aided by the  early and fast adoption of technologies, such as cloud computing, Software Defined everything (SDx), and IoT. High industrialization in countries such as the US and Canada has always been a positive factor for aiding fast growth in various business verticals. The countries in North America have favorable standards and networking regulations that help in boosting the NFV market growth. North America is a home for numerous NFV infrastructure providers, including Cisco, IBM, Juniper Networks, and Extreme Networks. It is also a potential market for investment opening up new opportunities for the adoption of NFV infrastructure. Due to increased 5G deployments, the adoption of NFV is increased in the region. However, in NFV, the control of the whole network is with the controller; hence, the deployment requires various organizational, functional, and cultural changes within organizations.

Key Network Function Virtualization market Players

The key players profiled in the NFV market include Cisco (US), Ericsson (US), Huawei (China), VMware(US), Nokia (Finland), HPE (US), Dell EMC (US), Juniper Networks (US), Affirmed Networks (US), NETSCOUT (US), NEC (Japan), Ribbon Communications (US), ZTE Corporation (China), Fujitsu (Japan), Ciena (US), ECI Telecom (Israel), Metaswitch (UK), Mavenir (US), Radisys (US), and Wind River (US).  These players have adopted various growth strategies, such as partnerships, agreements, and collaborations and new product launches and product enhancements to further expand their presence in the NFV market and increase their customer base.

The study involved four major activities to estimate the current market size of the Network Function Virtualization market (NFV). Exhaustive secondary research was done to collect information on the NFV market. The next step was to validate these findings, assumptions, and sizing with industry experts across the value chain using primary research. Both top-down and bottom-up approaches were employed to estimate the complete market size. Thereafter, the market breakup and data triangulation procedures were used to estimate the market size of the segments and subsegments of the NFV market.

Network Function Virtualization market Size Estimation

The top-down and bottom-up approaches were used to estimate and validate the size of the global NFV market and various other dependent submarkets in the overall market. An exhaustive list of all the vendors who offer solutions and services in the NFV market was prepared while using the top-down approach. The market share of all the vendors in the market was estimated through annual reports, press releases, funding, investor presentations, paid databases, and primary interviews. Each vendor was evaluated based on its components (solutions and services). The aggregate of all companies’ revenue was extrapolated to reach the overall market size.

Furthermore, each subsegment was studied and analyzed for its global market size and regional penetration. The markets were triangulated through both primary and secondary research. The primary procedure included extensive interviews for key insights from the industry leaders, such as Chief Executive Officers (CEOs), Vice Presidents (VPs), directors, and marketing executives.

Data Triangulation

After arriving at the overall market size using the market size estimation processes as explained above, the market was split into several segments and subsegments. The data triangulation and market breakup procedures were employed, wherever applicable, to complete the overall market engineering process and arrive at the exact statistics of each market segment and subsegment. The data was triangulated by studying various factors and trends from the demand and supply sides.
