Demand for enhanced network infrastructure among organization is increasing rapidly. At the same time, vendors are facing various challenges while installing network devices at the office premises due to the advent of advanced solutions and technologies such as cloud-based services, big data, virtualization, Internet of Things (IoT), and pervasive computing. Vendors need to introduce cost-effective, scalable, more secure, and easily manageable and interoperable networking solutions in order to address these challenges.
Network operating systems are designed to enable network function virtualization and software defined networking and switching workloads. Furthermore, it also helps deliver high security, automation, high performance, flexibility, and advanced network availability for today’s demanding enterprise edge. Network operating systems also have the capability to simplify the complexities of managing enterprise network requirements with AI-powered automation features and policy-driven segmentation.
The global network operating systems market is expanding at a rapid pace largely due to the increasing adoption of networking solutions among industries such as education, BFSI, and high-tech & telecom in order to enhance network performance. Furthermore, increasing demand for robust networking infrastructure and rising dependence on the internet are major factors that are likely to fuel the network operating systems market during the forecast period. Network infrastructure providers and data centers are under endless pressure to support new, revenue-generating services in the private cloud and public cloud, yet the spending on building the office infrastructure is often too high to do so. Network operating systems are expected to minimize this pressure by enabling network operators to handle the network glitches smoothly and efficiently. This is fueling the demand for network operating systems among end-users across the globe. Additionally, a rise in the demand for cloud-based applications is also fueling the network operating systems market. This expansion is primarily attributed to the rising need for optimization of the networking process and cost benefits associated with cloud-based solutions. However, a lack of awareness about Network operating systems among small and medium enterprises is a key factor that is likely to hinder the Network operating systems market.
Increasing numbers of data centers across the globe is anticipated to offer significant opportunity to the Network operating systems during the forecast period. This is primarily due to rising demand for managing the networking environment and infrastructure of an organization.
The global network operating systems market can be segmented based on component, enterprise size, end-user, and region. In terms of component, the network operating systems market can be classified into software/platform and services. The services segment can be further sub-segmented into training and consulting, integration and maintenance. Based on enterprise size, the network operating systems market can be divided into small and medium enterprises and large enterprises. Based on end-user, the global network operating systems market can be split into energy & utilities, banking, financial services, and insurance (BFSI), IT and telecom, retail, government and healthcare, defense, media and entertainment, manufacturing, education, and others.
In terms of region, the global network switches market can be classified into Asia Pacific, North America, Europe, Middle East & Africa (MEA), and South America. North America is anticipated to expand at a significant growth rate during the forecast period. This is primarily due to the high rate of adoption of networking software and services for network management and optimization by various end-use industries including government, BFSI, IT and telecom, in the region. However, the market in Asia Pacific is anticipated to expand at a notable growth rate during the forecast period. Rising awareness and popularity of cloud-based solutions among enterprises is anticipated to boost the network operating systems market in the region.
