Driving Factors

The significant impact of the IoT in recent years is the primary cause of the rise in the utilisation of edge computing. The rise in the use of cloud computing and storage solutions is helping to advance edge computing as well. It is feasible to accelerate decision-making close to the data source by operating and processing via edge computing. Edge computing and data centres have witnessed a sudden surge in demand due to the onset of COVID 19 pandemic. In contrast, it is anticipated that investment in these technologies would decline significantly in the coming months as more people use them. Businesses in a wide range of industry sectors are lowering their spending or cutting their investments in upgrading servers and software in order to achieve significant cost savings. There are a few anomalies, such expenditure on IoT and increasing edge in the telecom and healthcare sectors. Businesses use opportunities to offer new services in response to the current environment.


Restraining Factors

The price of the edge infrastructure is the primary factor limiting the growth of the edge computing market. People are becoming curious and wanting to test edge computing since, like in former years, its expansion was slow. But in the customers' minds, the price is the only item that poses a barrier. Due to the price increase brought on by technological advancement, this is not accessible for a reasonable price.



Market Segmentation

  • In 2021, hardware segment holds the largest market share of over 40%.

On the basis of component, the edge computing market is segmented into Hardware, Software, Services, Edge-managed Platforms. Among these, the hardware segment holds the largest market share of more than 40% since it is becoming more and more popular in the managed services sector. The amount of data produced by IoT and IoT devices is rapidly growing along with their quantity. Enterprises are therefore implementing edge computing equipment to reduce the stress on the cloud and data centres in order to deal with the volume of data generated. The hardware segment is further segmented into Sensors/ Routers Edge Nodes/Gateways (Servers), and Others, wherein the Edge Nodes/Gateways (Servers) segment accounted for significant market share. Additionally, the expansion of data centres in a variety of industries increases the demand for edge routers that connect local and wide-area networks (WAN). Edge data centers should be connected with edge routers which will help in handling large number of incoming traffic by maintain low latency. During the projection period, the requirement for secure and effective data processing at the network's edge is projected to fuel industry growth.
