“The need to avoid downtime and the growing demand for virtual and cloud-based solutions is driving the Virtual Customer Premises Equipment (V-CPE) market”
The V-CPE market size is expected to grow from USD 486.5 million in 2016 to USD 2,818.8 million by 2021, at a CAGR of 42.1% from 2016 to 2021. Rising need for mobility, surging demand for virtual networking infrastructure solutions and services, along with varying traffic patterns and increasing complexity of networks are increasing the adoption of V-CPE across end users. V-CPE provides enhanced physical networking infrastructure which can be transformed into sharable virtual resources, and can be accessed from anywhere without using much of the networking hardware. The virtual infrastructure concept has reduced the hardware dependency for enterprises and minimized the cost related to networking infrastructure. However, security and reliability concerns related to virtual architecture and lack of skilled workforce & limited knowledge among end users are limiting the growth of V-CPE solutions in the market.
“Enterprises in the education industry expected to gain maximum traction during the forecast period”
The application of V-CPE in the education industry is transforming the education system by providing benefits of virtualization technology. Online programs, group discussions, and information exchange are made possible through virtualization technology. With the education system having transitioned from learning in classrooms to learning through computers and universities integrating content into their existing networking or IT courses, V-CPE solutions allow the education industry to efficiently manage education programs and university data.
“Asia-Pacific (APAC) is projected to grow at the highest rate during the forecast period”
North America is expected to hold the largest market share during the forecast period due to increased usage of NFV and SDN among data centers and telecom companies which is transforming the V-CPE market across industries in the region. The region has dominance in the market as these countries have well established economies, which allow them to invest in new technologies. The APAC market is expected to witness exponential growth and is projected to be the fastest-growing region for the V-CPE market. The growth of V-CPE in the region is fueled by the increased need for enterprise mobility and cloud-based solutions. Also, the rapid expansion of enterprises in the region is another factor driving the growth of the V-CPE market. Several solution and service providers such as NEC and Huawei are catering to the growing demand for V-CPE across industry verticals in the region.
