Surging cost of (Multiprotocol Label Switching ) MPLS and the shifting of applications from data center to cloud, will drive the market for SD-WAN. The MPLS revenue is expected to reach $10.63 billion by 2022, growing at a CAGR of 90.6% during the forecast period 2016–2022.
Infoholic Research LLP, a global market research and consulting organization, has published a study titled “Worldwide Software Defined Wide Area Network (SD-WAN) Market: Drivers, Opportunities, Trends, and Forecasts: 2016–2022”
According to Infoholic Research, SD-WAN is an emerging application that provides advantages associated with Software Defined Networks (SDN) in data centers such as Wide Area Network (WAN) solution for the enterprise’ branch offices. The businesses and IT organizations are facing major issues in transferring data across the branch offices due to high complexity in branch deployments, increased access cost for MPLS‐based bandwidth to support application performance, and architectural issues in traditional WAN. SD-WAN is one of the solutions to overcome these challenges. SD-WAN provides a cloud‐based architecture that can access multiple links rapidly by changing locations and delivers with flexibility and agility that most businesses require. The worldwide SD-WAN market is estimated to grow at a CAGR of 90.2% during the forecast period 2016–2022 to touch an aggregate of $21.76 billion by 2022.
