Application Delivery Network Market Analysis

The Application Delivery Network Market will register a CAGR of 12.5% over the forecast period. An Application Delivery Network refers to the collection of services deployed simultaneously over a network to offer application availability, security, visibility, and acceleration from application servers to application end users. Application delivery networking comprises WAN optimization controllers (WOCs) and application delivery controllers (ADCs).

  • The demand for performing various tasks, such as load balancing, complex traffic management, SSL encryption, web application firewall, DDoS protection, authentication, and SSL VPN, are now integral elements to application delivery. Thus, the application delivery network has gained vital importance across the end-user industries undergoing rapid digital transformation.
  • A significant driver for the market is the explosive growth in the number of applications hosted in the cloud, which poses the challenges of deployment and management for organizations with a vast portfolio of applications in multi-cloud environments.
  • Virtualization is another prominent trend augmenting the market for ADN. As enterprises seek to assert consumer and employee-friendly interfaces while maintaining uniformity, security, and control across various devices, the application delivery network plays a critical role. The growing adoption of desktop virtualization, web-based applications, and virtualized mobile applications is increasing the importance of ADN, particularly across the BFSI, IT and Telecom, and government sectors that have registered the highest adoption of digitization across their data-centric operations.
  • The factors such as a lack of skilled workforce and the absence of standards and protocols limit the market growth. Also, complex integrated systems and the integration AND into the existing systems is a difficult task that confines the growth.
  • Due to COVID-19, Digital transformation initiatives worldwide are driving rapid adoption of multi-cloud and hybrid environments to serve customers and facilitate workforce transformation, particularly with the recent surge in work-from-home (WFH) requirements.

Application Delivery Network Market Trends

Cloud-based Delivery to Witness the Highest Growth

  • Complex business models are being improved by cloud platforms, which are also controlling more global integration networks. Cloud platforms are particularly adaptable to changing business needs and offer the same features as an on-premises solution.
  • The popularity of cloud-based application delivery networking has been fueled by ongoing trends in cloud computing, SaaS platforms, and the use of public and private clouds, even though traditional on-premise delivery network solutions still have a sizable market share.
  • Because cloud storage is only viable with a strong application delivery network, the migration of end users and businesses to cloud storage is anticipated to open up enormous market prospects.
  • Moreover, By allowing enterprise IT teams, who frequently lack the necessary security expertise, to offload security management to the cloud, cloud adoption for application delivery improves the capacity to meet bandwidth surges while saving time and resources for the organization.
  • The market for application delivery networks is anticipated to experience significant growth throughout the projected period due to the rapid expansion of cloud-based apps and the growing trend of BYOD in many companies.
