Industry Dynamics

 

Industry Trends

The increased adoption of internet services along with a surge in the number of connected devices will shift the trend towards bandwidth-intensive applications. Also, the surge in adoption of developed technology like big data, IoT, 5G deployment, cloud, and streaming devices will show a significant trend in the edge data center market.

Growth Drivers

The edge data centers are smaller in size and are placed near the location so they can be managed remotely. Factors attributing to the growth of the edge data center market include commercialization of 5G, growing demand for live streaming videos, rising demand for effective content delivery among users, and mounting mobile data traffic and over-the-top (OTT) traffic globally. Furthermore, the rising adoption of smartphones and IoT devices will lead to an increase in mobile data traffic, resulting in managing the increased amount of data by edge data centers will propel its growth. Also, the increased espousal of IoT devices like sensors, actuators, self-driven cars, robots in-home or industrial settings will enable service providers to manage large amounts of data, thereby propelling the growth in the market. During the forecast period, the rising need for increased channel capacity, quality, and compatibility is expected to push the global edge data center market.

Challenges

The rising need for massive capital investment, increased infrastructure cost, high maintenance cost, high-speed network connection in remote areas, and security concerns in green storage technologies will restrain the growth of the edge data center market globally, though, with development and ongoing investment in R&D activities, the edge technology cost might reduce soon.

Opportunities

The growing demand for high computational power is prompting service providers to host data centers at edge locations for low-latency connectivity, which is further driving lucrative opportunities in the edge data center market. Furthermore, the commercialization of 5G technology and advancement in AR so as to develop new edge facilities will further accelerate the growth opportunities in the market.
