The global cloud managed networking market size was USD 3.32 billion in 2019 and is projected to reach USD 14.61 billion by 2027, exhibiting a CAGR of 21.1% during the forecast period.

Cloud-managed networking is widely adopted by organizations to manage their network infrastructure including wired network, Wi-Fi, and SD-WAN, over a cloud-based service model. The networking service is generally hosted by third parties usually as paid or subscription-based models.

The market size of cloud managed networking is primarily driven by recent developments in data centers and the rising number of startups and small and mid-sized enterprises (SMEs). Increasing adoption of networking hardware such as routers and switches has assisted startups and SMEs to implement precise and secure networking infrastructure. This factor is likely to create a massive demand for managed networking hardware and cloud services, which would further drive the growth of the market. According to the Federal Ministry for Economy and Energy, (FMEE Org), in Germany, from 2016 to 2019, around USD 12 billion were invested in various startups and SMEs projects including High-tech Start-up, Fund, EXIST and INVEST, and others.

Increasing Use of Online Platforms amid COVID-19 to Surge Demand

The ongoing novel coronavirus pandemic is severely affecting the global economy. Currently, the pandemic has compelled organizations to permit their employees WFM (work from home) policy. According to a survey by Owl Labs, in March 2020, around 16% of organizations across the globe have implemented work from home policies for their employees. Also, the growth of the IT sector has slowed down and overall IT budgets and investments have gone down significantly. Considering the preliminary indicators from the first quarter of 2020, a minor decline is observed in the overall demand for managed networking services.

On the contrary, the demand for remote working service and managed network services such as advanced managed networking and collaboration devices is increasing. According to the IDC survey (International Data Corporation), as of March 2020, around 40% of 250 large and medium enterprises plan to invest in advanced cloud managed networking services and solutions during the pandemic. Similarly, governments worldwide are focused on investing and adopting advanced networking solutions. For instance, during the pandemic, the government of Estonia and Germany launched an event and invited developers and hackers to find managed networking solutions for COVID-19 related challenges.
