According to the report, the industry will benefit from advancements in networking technology as well as the growing popularity of OTT content. According to FMI analysts, software-as-a-service delivery network services will contribute significantly to overall revenue for media, entertainment, and healthcare applications. Rural areas face significant challenges due to a lack of networking infrastructure.
The content delivery network industry has experienced exponential growth in recent years as a result of major advances in networking technology and widespread internet penetration, even in developing countries. Furthermore, businesses have increased their demand for content outsourcing, management, and distribution of media services, accelerating access to potential customers. While revenue from content delivery network services has increased, the industry’s high levels of competition have reduced profit margins. Scalability is also an issue in terms of data storage, as well as mobile and dynamic content.
The FMI report provides a comprehensive overview of critical market dynamics. The following are some of the study’s key findings:
- In 2019, the market was valued at US$ 11.5 billion, with demand rising sharply and the coronavirus outbreak generating significant growth opportunities.
- Software-as-a-service content delivery networks are still in high demand, with individual module sales expected to outnumber bundled suites by 2030 due to customised CDN delivery processes.
- Due to unprecedented demand for on-demand media consumption, media distribution applications of content delivery networks are growing faster than software distribution and website caching.
- North America continues to be a major market growth driver, fueled by demand for video content and the digitization of organisational data. East Asia, on the other hand, is generating lucrative growth opportunities through significant investments in technological advancements in the region.
