Global Network Function Virtualization (NFV) Market to Reach US$ 60.1 Billion by 2027, Impelled by Rising Demand for Cloud Services

September 16, 2022

According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled "Network Function Virtualization (NFV) Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2022-2027," the global network function virtualization market reached a value of US$ 18.1 Billion in 2021. Network function virtualization (NFV) is a network architecture idea that supports IT virtualization technologies to virtualize entire sections of network node functions into building blocks that can be connected or chained together to produce and deliver communication services. It helps optimize the networks and related operations, thus lowering power consumption and reducing equipment costs. It separates communication services from dedicated hardware, such as routers and firewalls, which enables network operations to dynamically provide new services without installing new hardware. It allows virtual network functions to run on a standard generic server controlled by a hypervisor, which is less expensive than purchasing proprietary hardware devices.

We are regularly tracking the direct effect of COVID-19 on the market, along with the indirect influence of associated industries. These observations will be integrated into the report.

Global Network Function Virtualization Market Trends:

The global market is majorly driven by the increasing demand for cloud-based services. In line with this, the rising deployment of the internet of things (IoT), security agility, and cloud migration is favoring the market growth. The growing number of network complexities and the need for advanced network management systems are also acting as other growth-inducing factors. In line with this, the NFV market is anticipated to witness considerable growth as network virtualization technologies enable enterprises to eliminate the costs associated with procuring and maintaining hardware equipment. In addition to this, large-scale enterprises are rapidly embracing network virtualization solutions as they promote faster server provisioning and quick deployment of network services. Moreover, the growing demand for data center consolidation and server virtualization, along with increasing investments in 5G network technology, is positively influencing the market. On account of the aforementioned factors, the market is anticipated to reach a value of US$ 60.1 Billion by 2027, exhibiting a CAGR of 20.48% during 2022-2027.
