The trend of remote work and the need for managing geographically dispersed networks has surged, driving the demand for NMS solutions that offer remote management capabilities. Quoting an instance, in 2022, Cisco announced deploying its Network Assurance Engine (NAE) solution to help a large financial services company to improve its remote network management capabilities. The NAE solution uses AI and machine learning to automate network monitoring and troubleshooting tasks, which helps to free up IT staff to focus on other priorities. The integration of AI and ML in NMS platforms allows for intelligent automation, faster issue resolution, and proactive network management, creating a favorable growth outlook for the network management system industry.

The escalating rollout of 5G networks will play a key role in pushing the demand for NMS solutions. As of November 2022, an estimated 128 countries recorded 127,509 5G deployments compared to 85,602 in 112 countries in 2021, as per the Ookla 5G Map. 5G deployment requires advanced NMS capabilities to manage the increased network speed, lower latency, and diverse network elements, driving the demand for network management systems.

However, high initial investment and maintenance costs, lack of skilled personnel to manage NMS effectively, and concerns over data privacy and security issues may affect the NMS adoption rate. Additionally, rapid advancements in networking technologies and evolving industry standards create challenges for NMS vendors to keep up with the changing landscape, which may impact industry dynamics over the forthcoming years.

COVID-19 Impact

The COVID-19 pandemic had a significant impact on the network management system market. With widespread remote work and increased reliance on digital infrastructure, the demand for NMS solutions surged to ensure network stability and security. Instances like the exponential growth in online collaboration tools, cloud services adoption, and heightened cybersecurity threats highlighted the crucial role of NMS in maintaining seamless connectivity and mitigating network disruptions. However, the economic uncertainties during the pandemic also led to budget constraints, hindering some NMS investments for certain industries.

Network Management System Market Trends

Organizations across various industries recognize the importance of having real-time visibility into their network performance. NMS enables administrators to monitor network traffic, identify bottlenecks, and troubleshoot issues promptly. The rise in cyber threats and attacks has emphasized the need for robust network security management. Estimates suggest that in 2021 over 1.4 million cybersecurity incidents were reported to CERT-In. This number stood at over 1.1 million in 2020. NMS solutions often integrate security features like intrusion detection, firewall management, and threat analysis, which is likely to streamline the NMS market expansion over 2023-2032.

The network management system market from deployment segment has been divided into On-Premises and cloud. The on-premise segment was valued at over USD 5 billion in 2022 and will be valued at over USD 12 billion by 2032. The demand for on-premise Network Management System (NMS) solutions is driven by specific requirements of organizations that prioritize data control, security, and compliance. Industries such as healthcare, finance, and government often opt for on-premise NMS to maintain sensitive data within their secure networks and meet strict regulatory guidelines.

For instance, the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), a US federal law, regulates the disclosure and protection of health information. The law requires healthcare organizations to implement a number of security measures to protect patient data. Additionally, companies with legacy infrastructure may prefer on-premise solutions to integrate seamlessly with their existing systems. These instances demonstrate how certain industries prioritize the benefits of on-premise NMS to ensure data privacy and maintain control over their network management processes.
