Service Provider Router Market: Dynamics

Rise in Industrial Revolution 4.0 Accelerated Demand for Service Provider Routers for Strong Networking

  • Rise in industrial revolution 4.0 has accelerated adoption of machine-to-machine connected devices and industrial robots in various industries. Increase in adoption of industrial robotics to decrease production costs by reducing production waste and time, improve quality, reliability, and security requires strong networking to send data packets for m2m communication. For instance, according to the International Federation of Robotics, in 2017, the supply of industrial robots was 381,000 units globally. This supply is expected to reach 630,000 units by 2021. Similarly, increase in adoption of advanced technologies such as IoT/machine-to-machine (m2m) is a key factor driving the market. For instance, by 2022, number of m2m connected devices is expected to reach 14.6 million. Hence, rise of industrial revolution 4.0 has fueled the need for strong networking which, in turn, has boosted the demand for the service provider router market.
  • In addition, increase in adoption of cloud platform has accelerated the service provider router market globally. Organizations adopt cloud platform for task automation and cost optimization. Deployment of cloud platform helps organizations for better control on pricing and better utilization of advanced technology development. Increase in computing instances on cloud data centers is a key factor driving the service provider router market. By 2021, 94% of the workload and computing instances are estimated to be processed at cloud data centers, with only 6% processed at traditional data centers.
