The global Multi-access Edge Computing market size is expected to be worth around US$ 15.5 billion by 2028, according to a new report by Vision Research Reports.
The global Multi-access Edge Computing market size was valued at US$ 1.4 million in 2020 and is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 38.7% during forecast period 2021 to 2028.
Rise in the adoption of Over The Top (OTT) media streaming services and emerging demand among individuals to gain access to personalized content is expected to drive the market growth. Increasing number of users adopting the OTT video delivery model is expected to promote telecom companies and mobile networks to upgrade their existing infrastructure. Using the multi-access edge computing (MEC) architecture system brings backend functionality closer to the user network, which is expected to aid Multichannel Video Programming Distributors (MVPD) to meet their customers’ demands.
The industry is witnessing increased adoption in end-use industries, including IT and telecom, datacenters, and automotive. Apart from the dominant end-use sectors, the retail sector is expected to witness significant disruption due to the amalgamation of MEC over the next few years. Deployment of MEC technology is expected to enable stores to improve the performance of in-store systems and reduce data processing time, thus ensuring faster resolving of customer grievances. Furthermore, adoption of this technology is expected to reduce the load on external macro site, thus offering a seamless in-store experience for users. Reduced Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) due to integration of MEC in network systems as compared to legacy systems and subsequent ability to generate faster Return on Investment (RoI) is further expected to encourage smaller retail chains to leverage MEC technology.
The presence of several IoT devices in MEC-based ecosystem facilitates the need to have dedicated software that works and functions according to the available multi-access edge computing architecture. The growing need to use the software as per the given ecosystem to exercise multi-level load-balancing, distributed processing, and content synchronization is promoting the growth of the software segment. Additionally, solution providers, such as Verizon, have started offering software developer kits to its customers, thus allowing in-house teams to develop programs that are in-line with the company’s needs and requirements. Furthermore, these companies also provide predesigned software compatible with existing multi-access edge computing architecture of companies and ensure optimum processing capability, thereby stimulating multi-access edge computing market growth.
The IT and Telecom segment captured the largest revenue share in 2019. The commercial rollout of the 5G delivery system offers users to experience ultra-low latency and very high bandwidth for efficient transfer and analysis of data resolution, which is expected to further promote companies to leverage MEC practices. Additionally, IT hardware and software companies are coming up with new low-power products for IoT systems and networks, which is expected to boost sales and generate new revenue channels. For instance, AT&T Inc. has started providing MEC-based products, services, and solutions to its clients, according to their needs and requirements.
North America emerged as the market leader with more than 45% revenue share in 2019. The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) in the U.S. has implemented strategic initiatives, such as the 5G FAST PLAN, which is envisioned to accelerate 5G deployment in the country. The acceleration of 5G deployment is expected to increase the demand for multi-access edge computing solutions over the next few years. Furthermore, increasing datacenter installations have enabled solution providers to integrate multi-access edge computing and 5G, thereby boosting the regional market growth. Increasing datacenter deployments have given rise to partnerships and collaborations between several companies to enhance capabilities in their product and solution portfolio. Communication infrastructure provider Vertical Bridge Holdings LLC partnered with DataBank Ltd. to develop micro data centers with edge computing capability.
ADLINK Technology Inc.; Microsoft Corporation; Advantech Co, Ltd.; FogHorn Systems; Hewlett Packard Enterprise Development LP; and Saguna Networks Ltd. are some of the major players in the market. Organizations worldwide have started collaborating with other companies to enhance their service offerings and generate new revenue streams.
