Network Function Virtualization Market: Key Drivers, Trends, and Challenges
The shift from the CAPEX model to the OPEX model is notably driving the network function virtualization market growth, although factors such as system integration and interoperability issues may impede the market growth. Our research analysts have studied the historical data and deduced the key market drivers and the COVID-19 pandemic impact on the network function virtualization industry. The holistic analysis of the drivers will help in deducing end goals and refining marketing strategies to gain a competitive edge.
Key Network Function Virtualization Market Driver
The shift from the CAPEX model to the OPEX model is one of the key drivers supporting the network function visualization market growth. The rising cost pressure due to uncertain business and economic conditions has compelled several companies to use flexible IT solutions. The cost of the on-premises deployment model includes the cost of licensing, hardware, and others. Apart from the cost of the solution, organizations also need to spend a lot of funds for its proper implementation, which increases the overall OPEX. Almost all data centers operating worldwide are using virtualization to run applications. This technology has brought a significant reduction in the CAPEX for telecom operators' data centers. NFV is readily adopted by network service providers to reduce the need for hardware such as firewall, CDN, load balancers, WAN acceleration, and RAN. Hence, the demand for NFV is expected to increase during the forecast period.
Key Network Function Virtualization Market Trend
Increasing acceptance of cloud computing is another factor driving the network function virtualization market growth. The rise in cloud computing is supplemented by innovations in cloud network virtualization market and efficiency improvement. As a result, the cloud deployment models are becoming increasingly secure, reliable, and flexible. Innovations in cloud services are eventually expected to drive the wide reception of NFV solutions among the large enterprises as well though they would prefer a hybrid model. Moreover, the cloud model is expected to gain importance during the forecast period with the perpetual push toward lowering the run-time, increasing efficiency, and providing a simple as well as intuitive user interface.
Key Network Function Virtualization Market Challenge
The system integration and interoperability issues is hindering the network function market growth. The adoption of advanced network technologies in several industry verticals, including BFSI, telecom, healthcare, and government, is increasing significantly as it leads to system integration and interoperability issues. Technical glitches during the operations can incur costs to the organizations and reduce operational efficiencies. The integration of multiple IT systems and advanced technologies in traditional IT infrastructure can create a lot of cross-platform system integration issues. Therefore, vendors should integrate multiple IT systems in organizations along with virtual network infrastructure only when they have the help of an IT team that has the technical expertise to manage the IT infrastructure. This is anticipated to hinder the growth of the global NFV market during the forecast period.
This network function virtualization market analysis report also provides detailed information on other upcoming trends and challenges that will have a far-reaching effect on the market growth. The actionable insights on the trends and challenges will help companies evaluate and develop growth strategies for 2021-2025.
