Mobile Content Delivery Network Market Analysis

The mobile content delivery network (mobile CDN) market is expected to register a CAGR of 35.46%, over the forecast period (2021-2026). A mobile CDN is used to enhance data transfer on any mobile network or wireless network or a smart device, such as Android-based smartphones, Windows-based smartphones, iPods, iPads, iPhones, laptops, tablets, smart watches, and others.

  • The increasing demand for mobile computation devices, coupled with advanced network technologies, due to the increasing development of digitalization, is a key factor stimulating the demand, in the mobile CDN market, at an exponential rate. Moreover, the increasing adoption of Bring Your Own Device (BYOD), across industry verticals, and the proliferation of rich media content are increasing demand.
  • Factors, such as enhancing the data content, optimizing the bandwidth, providing greater resilience, achieving earlier delivery of content, as well as the reduction in mobile data traffic, are driving the market. Further, it helps in reduction of excessive information, increasing the demand for high-quality content over the internet at the consumer end, reduction of buffer and load times to improve the end-user experience, and traffic management during peak times.
  • However, constant monetization of mobile sites and unreliable connectivity and latency issues are some factors restraining the market. Delivering Quality of Service (QoS) and increasing pricing pressure are challenging market growth.
