Global SDN Market worth over $200 Bn by 2032

  • Published Date: December 12, 2022

Software Defined Networking (SDN) Market size is estimated to reach USD 200 billion by 2032, according to a new research report by Global Market Insights Inc.

The soaring venture capital investment in the global market is escalating the use of software defined networking. There was a notable development in severe virtualization technology due to the lack of companies that emerged during the disruptive technology period. This has resulted in a surging number of start-ups entering the market to identify innovative ideas and new pain points and to accelerate the shift away from legacy solutions. Furthermore, the exceptional 60-fold boost in VC funding is likely to stimulate SDN market share.

Complexity of SDN architecture may limit product uptake

In comparison to server virtualization, SDN is a significantly more pervasive technology. The multitude of technologies, protocols, and devices that must be compatible with SDN complicates migration for both consumers and vendors, which is considered to be one of the key factors impeding the adoption of SDN solutions. However, prominent R&D initiatives for the development of simple SDN structures may help manufacturers to overcome this hindrance in the future.
