The network slicing market size is expected to grow from USD 112.3 Million in 2017 to USD 302.2 Million by 2022, at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 21.9%. The estimated year considered for the study is 2017 and the forecast period is from 2017 to 2022.

Objectives of the Study

The main objective of the report is to define, describe, and forecast the network slicing market size on the basis of components (technologies and services), application areas, and region. The report provides detailed information on the major factors (drivers, restraints, opportunities, and challenges) influencing the growth of the market. The report attempts to forecast the market size with respect to the 5 main regions, namely, North America, Europe, Asia Pacific (APAC), Middle East and Africa (MEA), and Latin America. The report strategically profiles the key market players and comprehensively analyzes their core competencies. The report also tracks and analyzes the competitive developments, such as joint ventures, mergers and acquisitions, and new product developments, in the network slicing market.

The research methodology used to estimate and forecast the network slicing market size began with the collection and analysis of data on the key vendor revenues through secondary sources, including annual reports and press releases, investor presentations, technology journals, certified publications, articles from recognized authors, directories, and databases. The vendor offerings were also taken into consideration to determine the market segmentations. The bottom-up procedure was employed to arrive at the overall market size of the market from the revenue of the key players and their market shares. The network slicing market spending across all the regions, along with the geographical split in various application areas, was considered to arrive at the overall market size. After arriving at the overall market size, the total market was split into several segments and sub segments, which were then verified through primary research by conducting extensive interviews with key people, such as Chief Executive Officers (CEOs), Vice Presidents (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 the segments and subsegments. The breakdown of the profiles of the primary participants is depicted in the below figure:

MarketsandMarkets forecasts the global network slicing market size to grow from USD 112.3 Million in 2017 to USD 302.2 Million by 2022, at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 21.9%.

The network slicing market is segmented on the basis of components (technologies and services), application areas, and region. The network slicing market is expected to be witnessing a significant growth due to mobile data traffic volumes and virtualization of networks. Furthermore, the rising demand for high-speed and large network coverage, and the increasing demand for broadband services over mobile networks are expected to be driving the adoption of reliable network slicing technologies and services.

The network slicing Software-Defined Networking (SDN) and Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) technology is expected to hold the largest market size during the forecast period, as SDN and NFV is the key virtualization technology that helps build softwarized, virtualized, and cloudified next-generation systems. SDN, NFV, and network virtualization collaboratively aim to advance the software-based approach to networking for more scalable, agile, and innovative networks for aligning and supporting the overall networking requirements of the business.

The network slicing market is said to be booming, due to the increasing demand for broadband services over mobile networks, virtualization of networks, significant growth in mobile data traffic volumes, and rising demand for high-speed and large network coverage. Moreover, the continuous increase in the number of IoT-connected devices and agile networks provide the flexibility in the network and offer various opportunities in the market. However, with these upcoming opportunities, the network slicing market also faces several design challenges, such as granularity constraints in the spectrum and radio-level resource sharing, Radio Access Technology (RAT) heterogeneity and spatial diversity, managing information exposure and sharing constraints, and network slice requests brokerage.

Network Slicing Market

North America is estimated to have the largest market share in the network slicing market in 2017. The factors that are expected to drive this growth include the increasing adoption of smart connected devices, Industrial Internet of Things (IIoE), and agile networks. North America has always topped the list in adopting new technologies in the world, and as a result, it has the largest number of 5G vendors providing network slicing technologies. Moreover, the increased budgets and grants have invited various big players to make significant investments in this region.

The Asia Pacific (APAC) and European regions are expected to grow at significant CAGRs during the forecast period. APAC is said to be witnessing the highest growth rate, owing to the rapid development of the network infrastructure and the adoption of new technologies, such as C-RAN, augmented reality, industrial IoT, SDN and NFV, and Tactile Internet, along with increased investments in the large-scale infrastructure projects by vendors in the APAC region.

However, the recent developments, new product launches, and acquisitions undertaken by the major market players are said to be boosting the growth of the market.

The study measures and evaluates the major offerings and key strategies of the major network slicing market vendors, including Ericsson (Sweden), Huawei (China), Nokia (Finland), Intel (US), Cisco (US), ZTE (China), SK Telecom (South Korea), NTT DOCOMO (Japan), Affirmed Networks (US), Deutsche Telekom (Germany), Telefσnica (Spain), Samsung Electronics (South Korea), Aria Networks (UK), Argela (Turkey), and Mavenir (US). These companies have been at the forefront in offering reliable network slicing technologies and services to commercial clients across diverse geographical locations.
