The Virtualized EPC market report aims at estimating the market size and the growth potential of the global market across different segments such as components (solution and services), deployment types, end-users, use cases, and regions. The primary objectives of the report are to provide a detailed analysis of major factors (drivers, restraints, opportunities, industry-specific challenges, and recent developments) influencing the market growth, analyze the market opportunities for stakeholders, and offer details of the competitive landscape to the market leaders.

The research methodology used to estimate and forecast the Virtualized EPC market begins with capturing data on the key vendor revenues through secondary sources, such as annual reports, press releases and investor presentations of companies, and white papers, certified publications, and articles from recognized associations and government publishing sources. Vendor 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 Virtualized EPC market from the revenues of the key market players. After arriving at the overall market size, the market was split into several segments and subsegments, which were then verified through primary research by conducting extensive interviews with key industry personnel, such as Chief Executive Officers (CEOs), Vice Presidents (VPs), directors, and executives. Data triangulation and market breakdown procedures were employed to complete the overall market engineering process and arrive at the exact statistics for all segments and subsegments. The breakdown of the profiles of the primary discussion participants is depicted in the below figure:

MarketsandMarkets forecasts the virtualized Evolved Packet Core (vEPC) market to grow from USD 968.9 million in 2017 to USD 7,975.3 million by 2022, at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 52.4% during the forecast period. The major factors driving the Virtualized EPC market growth are rapid growth in the number of Long Term Evolution (LTE) mobile subscribers, minimization in Capital Expenditure (CapEx) and Operational Expenditure (OpEx), and growing network infrastructure across the globe.

The objective of the report is to define, describe, and forecast the Virtualized EPC market size on the basis of components (solution and services), deployment types, end users, use cases, and regions. In the components, the solutions segment is expected to have a larger market share during the forecast period owing to the large-scale implementation of the Virtualized EPC solution by telecom operators across the globe. The services segment is expected to grow at a higher CAGR during the forecast period. This growth is primarily due to the wide adoption of Virtualized EPC solutions across telco’s, thereby generating demand for consulting services, implementation and deployment services, and training and support services.

In the deployment type segment, the cloud deployment type is expected to grow at a higher rate during the forecast period. Companies are shifting toward a cloud-based Virtualized EPC solution to reduce investments in the network infrastructure and to experience scalability, faster deployment, and agility benefits. However, many users prefer the on-premises deployment type due to the ease of integrating the hardware with the software solutions and security issues. Therefore, on-premises deployment model is estimated to have the largest market share in the Virtualized EPC market.

In the use case segment, the LTE, Voice over LTE (VoLTE), and Voice over Wi-Fi (VoWiFi) segment is expected to have largest market share during the forecast period. As VoLTE is the preferred option for Communications Service Providers (CSPs) that allows transfer of voice traffic over IP based network. VoWiFi also functions on same mobile core network as VoLTE. Mobile operators are delivering WiFi calling service to customers in low network coverage area. The IoT and Machine to Machine (M2M) segment is projected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. By deploying the Virtualized EPC solution in IoT core network, the operator can bring superior connectivity for M2M devices and explore new service for customers.

Virtualized Evolved Packet Core (vEPC) Market

The Virtualized EPC market is segmented into 5 regions, namely, North America, Asia Pacific (APAC), Europe, Middle East and Africa (MEA), and Latin America. North America is expected to have the largest share in the market during the forecast period. Driven by the expansion of LTE and LTE-advanced (LTE-A) networks in the region, CSPs are looking for new innovative solutions to standardize their 4G/LTE business models, provide better customer service, and measure the service quality and performance. APAC is expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period, as the region has the presence of big giant telecom operators that are gradually embracing the adoption of the Virtualized EPC solution on their network.

The rapid growth in the IoT and 5G technology is benefiting the growth of the Virtualized EPC market during the forecast period. However, reluctance in transiting from legacy infrastructure to virtualization may act as the restraining factors that can hamper the growth of the market.

Major vendors in the Virtualized EPC market are Affirmed Networks (US), Ericsson (Sweden), Huawei Technologies (China), Mavenir (US), ZTE Corporation (China), Athonet (Italy), Cisco Systems (US), NEC Corporation (Japan), Nokia Corporation (Finland), and Samsung (South Korea) and the key innovators includes ExteNet Systems (US), Telrad Networks (Israel), and Core Network Dynamics (Germany).
