Fog Computing Market size is set to reach USD 700 million by 2024; according to a new research report by Global Market Insights Inc.
The fog computing market is expected to witness lucrative growth due to the surge in the demand for fog computing solutions, supporting the operations of storage, computing, and networking services among end devices and data centers. The proliferation of connected devices has resulted in the generation of massive volumes of data, increasing the need for such solutions for the effective processing of data. These solutions reduce network latency and support high bandwidth to achieve better quality of services. Another factor augmenting market growth is the growing need among organizations to enhance data security being connected to multiple devices across a network. Fog computing provides better security to users as the data is analyzed locally and can be protected using the same methods followed in the IT environment.
The hardware market held a major market share in 2016 and is expected to maintain its dominant share of above 45% by 2024. The market growth is attributed to the declining prices of sensors, semiconductor devices, and storage devices. Advancements in the functionality and design of devices are also propelling the fog computing market demand. In this segment, the routers and switches market is expected to grow at a CAGR of over 70% due to the growing requirements to gather data from multiple sensors. The increasing demand for routers and switches is attributed to the increasing level of digital integration and supportive government initiatives for the development of smart cities across the globe.
