"New Drivers of Network and Equipment Market: Cloud Computing, 5G, and
Autonomous Vehicles with Analysis and Forecasts, 2018 - 2023"
January 8, 2019
As seen on LIGHTWAVE, “Observers agree that cloud computing, the advent
of 5G mobile services, and autonomous vehicles (as well as smarter
conventional cars) will drive up bandwidth and therefore the demand for
networking gear. Information Gatekeepers Inc. (IGI) has issued “New
Drivers of Network and Equipment Market: Cloud Computing, 5G, and
Autonomous Vehicles with Analysis and Forecasts, 2018 – 2023,” a report in
which the market research firm, working with author Clif Holliday of B&C
Consulting Services, projects how much impact these catalysts will have on
the demand for WDM/ROADM, network switches, and network routers.”
"IGI and Holliday describe the potential impact of each of the three
drivers, then apply their impact estimates on previous demand and revenue
forecasts for DWDM/ROADM gear, routers, and switches (particularly from
IGI’s 2016 “Network of the Future – with Equipment Forecasts” report).
Given the differing maturity level of the three catalysts, it’s not
surprising that IGI and Holliday see cloud computing as having the first
and largest impact on network equipment demand over the forecast period.
Cloud computing is already being used by network managers in a variety of
customer segments, and the report predicts that cloud computing will have
more impact on hardware demand than 5G and autonomous vehicles combined. 5G
will begin to make its presence felt this year, according to the report,
while autonomous vehicles won’t begin to influence network equipment demand
until around 2021."
"The three influencers improve what should be a good story for DWDM and
ROADM vendors through 2023. The global DWDM market should exceed $12
billion by 2023, with the ROADM market only slightly behind at nearly $11
billion. From a technology perspective, IGI and Holliday see sales of 200-
and 400-Gbps DWDM systems eclipsing those of 100-Gbps platforms around
2021-22," as reported by LIGHTWAVE.
If you are involved in forecasting, manufacturing, purchasing, or utilizing
DWDM, ROADMs, network Routers and network Switches, this report will
become your major tool. It offers forecasts for not only units (US and
World-wide, 2018-2023) and market forecasts, but also breaks down those
forecasts by a number of useful subdivisions.
Each of these three "New Drivers" - Cloud Computing, Autonomous Vehicles,
and 5G - is explained, examined and a forecast of network requirements
impact is developed and presented. To reach an integrated forecast, a
complete update to previous forecasts of network requirements through 2023
As a part of the consideration of developing equipment forecasts the
expected capital investments of major carriers are considered. Also, a new
forecast for network traffic by market segment is developed. These inputs
are used in developing the unit forecasts.
A US forecast and a World forecast are developed and presented for DWDM,
ROADMs, network Routers and network Switches. These forecasts are presented
as units forecasts as well as market forecast. In each equipment section a
description of the equipment and its major applications are provided.
A review of major vendors of each type of equipment concludes the main
section of the report. Appendixes are provided that give detail for the
survey used in the report, as well as providing information on traffic
