Network Managed Services Market Analysis

The managed network services market was valued at USD 79.69 billion in the previous year, and it is expected to record a CAGR of 12.19%, reaching USD 149.28 billion over the forecast period. Increasing business process efficiency by cost optimization and high penetration of mobility, cloud computing, and big data technology are some of the major factors driving the market growth.

  • Managed network services give SMEs much space to grow and achieve their goals. IT spending among SMEs is anticipated to rise, demonstrating that SMEs constantly focus on expanding through implementing new and extended IT services. The demand for managed network services is increasing as SMEs increasingly adopt cloud computing, automate services, and experiment with advanced digital technologies.
  • The growing digital transformation propels the demand for managed network services as they provide expertise, scalability, security, and operational efficiency in managing complex and critical networks that underpin modern businesses. According to a Global Network survey by NTT Group, about 93% of organizations recognize the significance of the network as the backbone of digital transformation.
  • With a modern hyper-distributed workforce, customers' networking and security requirements are evolving as more employees use the network from various places and devices. Organizations are searching for solutions and services to handle these difficulties to serve the new and highly scattered workforce, providing opportunities for the managed network service providers.
  • The alarming growth in cybercrimes has worried organizations about the potential risks associated with outsourcing network management, including exposing confidential information to third parties. High-profile data breaches or security incidents involving managed service providers can exacerbate these concerns and lead some businesses to hesitate in adopting the managed network service market.
  • The COVID-19 crisis created an unprecedented situation for MSPs on a global level. As businesses adjusted to rapidly changing work environments, the quality of collaboration and communication profoundly impacted both productivity and employee output. This resulted in increased demand for managed network services from businesses so that employees had seamless access to their workplace apps on the device they used, whether personal or company-owned.

Network Managed Services Market Trends

IT and Telecom Sector to be the Largest End User

  • Modernizing IT service management for the IT and telecommunications sectors is quite a mature methodology. This bridges the gap between on-premise and cloud-based IT solutions. It improves operational effectiveness and efficiency. As a result, integrating how data is recorded, processed, and shared across companies enhances the experience for internal IT personnel and external constituents.
  • With the rapid growth of technology, telecommunication companies are constantly concentrating on innovation. As a result, they are enhancing their infrastructure while providing advanced solutions to support their clients, such as innovation, customer service, infrastructure configuration, and human resources.
  • The increased adoption of 5G networks is the current market trend. Mobile network operators handle the increasing complexity caused by implementing 5G and the requirement for dependable, secure, and robust connections. The increased number of devices, a diversity of new technologies, and a broader spectrum of service requirements drive this complexity. As the 5G usage cases become more sophisticated, demanding, and vital, secure user experience has become the primary end-user expectation.
  • When 5G networks are planned, developed, built, and implemented, the emphasis shifts to supporting end users' whole security and quality experience. This further necessitates a fundamental shift in how deployed networks are managed and optimized.
  • To successfully operate high-performance service-driven networks securely and depart from the traditional network resource management model, where technology-related capacity, availability, and performance are critical, the 5G network operations and optimization require a shift from technology-centric to end-user service-centric. As a result, there is an increase in the demand for telecom-managed services to help with this transition, thereby driving the market revenue growth. According to Ericsson Mobility Report, June 2023, the growth in 5G subscriptions is expected to continue into the foreseeable future, reaching 1.5 billion subscriptions globally by the end of the year, which includes an increase of 500 million subscriptions in the past one year.
  • Various players across the world are undertaking various initiatives as a move toward the adoption of managed services. Large enterprises segment has emerged to be a growing segment in the market. Companies are making significant efforts to offer enhanced managed services.
