Edge Computing Revenue will Reach $28.84 Billion

Advances in semiconductor technology enable apps at the edge of networks, creating new uses cases. The global edge computing market was valued at $1.47 billion in 2018 and is forecast to reach $28.84 billion by 2025 at a CAGR of 54 percent, according to the latest worldwide market study by Grand View Research.

The growing need to process large volumes of data generated from the Internet-of-Things (IoT) applications that are closer to the end-user will drive demand for these solutions. Increasing emphasis on cost reduction and process automation will also motivate more adoptors.

Edge Computing Market Development

Organizations are already applying edge computing technology to enhance operations and gain real-time insights from their IoT data. Thus, the continued transition toward edge computing is expected to influence the IT strategies of more CIOs and CTOs at forward-thinking companies.

Continued adoption of edge computing for data center applications is also expected to propel the market growth. Its adoption will culminate in 'micro' data centers located closer to the existing on-premises infrastructure, which would help address network latency issues.


Data Center Management-as-a-Service (DMaaS) is also emerging as a low-cost way to ensure effective use of the IT layer by monitoring the data center’s infrastructure from the edge. DMaaS can also be utilized as a cost-efficient and flexible solution for real-time data analysis.

Stringent requirements of 5G wireless communication network standards -- such as high reliability, ultra-low latency, and consistency in user experience -- will likely trigger the need for localized services based on Radio Access Network (RAN) technology.

Mobile Edge Computing (MEC) is emerging as a promising computing architecture for telecom network operators, IT platform providers, and system integrators. MEC adds virtualization and computing capabilities to a 5G RAN deployment.

Additional market study findings include:
  • High-performance applications in the edge network are expected to propel the growth of the software component segment over the forecast period.
  • Data centers' end-use segment is expected to witness the fastest CAGR, owing to the rising need for reducing data center downtime.
  • The APAC region will experience the highest CAGR, 60+ percent from 2019 to 2025. The need for digital transformation to streamline operations is expected to drive the market.
  • Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) are using this edge computing in their automation and predictive maintenance solutions to transform their service model.
Outlook for Edge Computing Applications Growth

North America accounted for the largest market share of more than 45 percent in 2018 and is projected to maintain dominance throughout the forecast period, as the consumer and business sectors in the region rely on more IoT devices.

Higher cloud computing adoption in the region is contributing to the ongoing market transition. The development of innovative concepts, such as autonomous cars, within North America is also expected to propel the regional market growth in the years to come.

Mobility-as-a-Service Creates Disruptive Travel Options

Building on significant advances in big data, analytics, and the Internet of Things (IoT), more innovative transit service offerings aim to increase public transport ridership and reduce emissions or congestion within metropolitan areas. By providing these services through smartphone apps, the transit services also significantly increase user convenience, providing information on different human mobility offerings -- including public transport, ridesharing, and autonomous vehicles. Mobility-as-a-Service Market Development According to the latest market study by Juniper Research, Mobility-as-a-Service (MaaS) subscribers will generate $53 billion in revenue for MaaS platform providers by 2027 -- that's rising from $5.3 billion in 2021. Let's start with a basic definition. MaaS is the provision of multi-modal end-to-end travel services through single platforms, by which users can determine an optimal route and price. The study identified a monthly subscription model as key to incr

Robocall Mitigation Solutions to Halt Criminal Threats

If you answer the phone and hear a recorded message instead of a live person, it's likely a robocall. A robocall is a phone call that uses a computerized autodialer to deliver a pre-recorded message. In 2020, the U.S. Federal Trade Commission (FTC) received 2.8 million consumer complaints about robocalls. Offering solutions to robocalling and associated fraudulent business practices, computerized mitigation platforms are an integral part of the solution. Platforms that are focused on actionable systems to disrupt unsolicited and potentially criminal phone calls help telecom service providers and industry regulators. Issues of whether one-size-fits-all developments are sufficient to be effective across the spectrum need to be addressed, and whether a single telecom network operator working unilaterally with a third-party platform could compromise desired or mandatory industry-wide standards. Robocall Mitigation Market Development According to the latest worldwide market study by Jun

Upside for New 5G Network Transport Infrastructure

The global mobile communication sector is in the midst of a significant network infrastructure upgrade to support the introduction of new high-bandwidth and low-latency broadband service offerings.  Telecom service provider data centers have an important role in fifth-generation (5G) network deployments. Providers undergoing their transition to Stand-Alone (SA) 5G must understand the technical demands of telco data centers and the key enablers of those offerings. According to the latest worldwide market study by ABI Research, the major prerequisites of 5G and the emerging transport solutions would help operators position themselves to successfully capitalize on the new revenue opportunities from delivering differentiated 5G connectivity services. 5G Transport Network Market Development "The rise of the telco data center has a high degree of confluence with the requirements of SA 5G architectures. SA 5G and its increasing reliance on telco data centers can be attributed to the incr
