Virtual Router Market

Virtual Router Market by Component (Solution (Integrated and Standalone) and Service), Type (Predefined and Custom), End-User (Service Provider (Telecom, Data Center, and Cloud) and Enterprises), and Region - Global forecast to 2023

Report Code: TC 6599 Sep, 2018, by marketsandmarkets.com

[125 Pages Report] A virtual router is a software that can perform hardware-based (Layer-3) IP routing when deployed over COTS hardware. Virtual routing is a form of NFV, and it offers several advantages over traditional hardware routers in terms of speed, efficiency, and CAPEX, and OPEX. The virtual router makes it easier to manage complex CPE functions in the network by reducing the number of physical router requirements. Virtual routers enable the decoupling of the control plane and data plane, which in traditional chassis-based routers are bound to the same Central Processing Unit (CPU), tightly linking traditional chassis-based router deployments to a single system and inherently exposing the entire system to a single point of failure. Virtual router solutions make it possible to independently allocate physical data center resources for virtual machines within the network. Processing cores and memory can be dynamically allocated to these virtual machines to grow their capacity with the growing requirements independently.

The global virtual router market size is expected to grow from USD 86.8 million in 2017 to USD 331.5 million by 2023, at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 23.2% during the forecast period. The major factors driving the growth of the market are the decrease in CAPEX and OPEX, growth in demand for SDN and NFV, and the increasing need for mobility.

 “APAC is expected to grow at the highest growth rate during the forecast period.”

The virtual router market is expected to gain traction in all the major regions across the globe. North America and Europe, along with some countries in RoW, are witnessing the latest developments in networking technology. Increasing demand for network optimization, private cloud adoption, rising need for mobility, increasing deployment of SDN and NFV infrastructure, and rising trend of Bring Your Own Device (BYOD)across enterprises are the prime factors expected to drive the overall market growth in APAC and Europe. North America is projected to attain steady growth during the forecast period, while countries in RoW are still in the implementation stage and are expected to achieve decent growth during the forecast period.

Market Dynamics

Driver:  Reduction in CAPEX and OPEX

In the network environment, hardware maintenance is an added expenditure, and enterprises primarily focus on reducing the cost associated with the same. With the growth in the acceptance of the virtualization environment, organizations can considerably reduce the cost associated with the maintenance of the dedicated routers. A virtual router is a software-based routing methodology that enables the host machine to work as a typical hardware router. Moreover, virtual routers include all components that are provided by the physical router, excluding any physical infrastructure. Internet and cloud services providers, by deploying virtual routers, can focus on reducing the cost required to invest in large hardware containers, as virtual routers can be opted/deployed according to the as-pay-as-you-grow model. Hence, virtual routers can help services providers leverage the benefits offered by the virtualization technology, thereby assisting considerable reduction in CAPEX and OPEX. This, in turn, is further expected to drive the market in the coming years.

Restraint:  Reluctance in moving from the legacy system to the virtualized environment

The reluctance in moving from the legacy system to the virtualized environment can be one of the restraining factors in the virtual router market. Several service providers, such as Internet Service Provider (ISP) and telecom, continue to maintain and operate legacy systems, which are complex to manage. The legacy systems pose various challenges related to the maintenance cost and the lack of compatibility on various platforms. The new virtual router software solutions need to be customized for supporting the traditional architecture and infrastructure. These solutions must be properly integrated with the existing infrastructure to realize the benefits, thus there is always a risk this integration would be incomplete. Hence, when deploying a new virtual router application into operations, services providers are reluctant to convert old services to the new virtualized environment. Some telecom operators are continuing to use the traditional systems, which are not capable of supporting new services for increasing the customer base. However, service providers across the globe have gradually started implementing virtual router solutions into their operations to accelerate time-to-market, reduce the infrastructure maintenance cost, and increase RoI.

Opportunity: Demand for private cloud

Organizations are moving toward the private cloud to leverage the benefits, such as security and privacy, efficiency, and customization. The adoption of virtual routers through the private cloud can help organizations effectively manage their network while reducing the cost associated with the management of the virtual router infrastructure. Moreover, the deployment of virtual routers via the private cloud offers a cost-effective way, thereby helping IT teams effectively manage organizations’ entire network.

Challenge:  Lack of skills and expertise

Lack of skills and expertise can be seen as one of the challenges in the virtual router market. Engineers with the skills and expertise to implement virtualized router software solutions in next-generation networks and data centers are becoming crucial. Large organizations may have people with the required skillsets, but Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (SMEs) may have to hire people on a contract basis to deploy solutions in a virtualized environment. Any error in the integration and deployment of these solutions may adversely impact the network infrastructure, thereby impacting the revenue and customer satisfaction.
