Region :Global | Report ID: FBI104768 | Status : Ongoing



Enterprises are increasingly transitioning their companies to digital networks, which has intensified the need for a reliable network infrastructure and carrier routing equpmentsand other networking tools. Companies are under pressure on their network infrastructure due to growing demands for access and a rising number of corporate information resources. Carrier routing and networking tools such as routers, switches, and cables are highly implemented to enhance network stability and durability. The growing market for connecting data centers and remote office locations is projected to accelerate the adoption of Ethernet cables, high-performance routers, and other networking tools.

The market has witnessed huge momentum owing to the expanded usage of high-speed Gigabit Ethernet, propelled by the growing use of PoE (Power over Ethernet) for a range of business applications and the integration of enterprise and residential networks. Increasing demand for Internet-enabled applications, expansion of cloud networking, coupled with the growing acceptance of virtualized technology, is expected to drive progress of the market. Further, the expansion of Wi-Fi technologies and the increasing need for carrier routing equipments to deploy  business WLAN networks are projected to accelerate the market.

Mobile data congestion is anticipated to increase over the next years as carriers deploy stronger networks and customers connect more devices. This rise in demand for netrowk infrastructure can be due to an improvement in mobile use, and growth in cellular apps on the network coupled with the introduction of faster networks such as 3G/4 G and LTE around the globe. This has further created huge demand forcarreir routing equiments among service providers and businesses.

Given the possible near-term effect of COVID-19, the carrier routing equipment industry is projected to see steady development in the next few years. Despite the expectation that long-term demand-driving factors such as the 5 G build-up and transfer of mobile traffic to Cloud are unlikely to slow down, and service providers would continue to install long-term network resources to meet the anticipated network bandwidth growth.
