Growing Demand for Enterprise Connectivity Will Drive the Growth for Ethernet Services
The retail Ethernet services market refers to the provision of Ethernet for enterprises or business use. A moderate growth is expected in this market, driven by the increasing need for enterprise connectivity to access new applications such as cloud or conferencing services, as well as to connect to offices located across cities globally. While Western Europe is a more mature market and larger in size, Eastern Europe constitutes emerging economies, which increases the potential for Ethernet growth in the region.
The total European retail carrier Ethernet (CE) services market is estimated at $ million for 2013, with an expected compounded annual growth rate (CAGR) of % (2013–2018).
Retail Ethernet services market growth is a result of increased demand both in the metro and long-haul markets. The need for inter-city enterprise connectivity is expected to spur higher long-haul market growth than metro market.
The need for scalable, high capacity bandwidth speeds will continue to drive demand for switched Ethernet services such as 1 GigE and 10 Gbps.
Currently, E-Line represents the majority of the total market revenue. However, the need to connect multiple sites across regions is expected to fuel rapid growth in E-LAN services during the forecast period.
The retail CE services market’s competitive landscape in Europe is fragmented, led by service offerings from the telecom incumbents, pan-European providers and national providers.
Western European countries such as the United Kingdom, Germany and France are the largest markets for CE services. High growth regions such as Benelux and Eastern Europe are also expected to contribute to the expansion of the total market.
