Increasing need for mobility services to drive the SD-WAN market
The SD-WAN market size is estimated to grow from USD 4.66 billion in 2015 to USD 5.57 billion by 2020, at an estimated Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 3.64%. The SD-WAN market is driven by factors such as increasing need for mobility services, reducing OPEX and urge for simplified network architecture.

Controllers are expected to gain the maximum traction during the forecast period
The controller segment is estimated to contribute the largest market share during the forecast period. Furthermore, rising need for enterprise mobility has increased the usage of mobile personal devices, such as smartphones, notebooks, and tablets to access corporate networks. The incumbent IT infrastructure is under pressure to configure these devices in a robust manner, while meeting compliance standards and norms.

The rise of such enormous mobile datasets calls for parallel processing on multiple servers and seamless interconnections. This, in turn, has stimulated a constant demand for additional network capacity and more sophisticated network solutions. While carrier and data center players face the daunting task of scaling their networks to unimaginable sizes, SD-WAN comes off as a promising solution. On-cloud services are expected to grow with the highest rate from 2015 to 2020. However, professional services are expected to contribute the largest market share during the forecast period. The SD-WAN vendors are coming up with various programs to mitigate gaps and correct implementation of the solution at user’s premises.

The report also covers the total SD-WAN market by geographic regions. North America is expected to have the largest market share; however, Latin America will grow at the highest CAGR from 2015 to 2020. On-going demand for the increasing bandwidth and increasing dependency in high performance networks are the reason for growth of SD WAN in North America.
