Enterprise Router Market to See Growth in 2013, Says Infonetics Research
By Rory Lidstone, TMCnet Contributing Writer
Infonetics Research (News - Alert) recently released its year-end and fourth quarter 2012 Enterprise Routers market share and forecast report, which predicts a strong 2013 compared to 2012, as companies shift toward branch and mod-range routers.
This shift will be driven largely by the rise in cloud services adoption, along with general economic growth.
“Buyers are resorting to low-end routers at their branches rather than the more typical branch and mid-range routers, which resulted in a revenue decline for 2012,” noted Matthias Machowinski, directing analyst for enterprise networks and video at Infonetics Research, in a statement.
In total, the worldwide enterprise router market hit $3.5 billion in 2012 – a decline of 3 percent compared to 2011, but better than 2010. Still, this figure is still relatively small compared to the previous market high of $4.3 billion in 2007.
Infonetics Research forecasts that this high will be shattered by 2017, however, when the global enterprise router market is expected to hit $5 billion.
Meanwhile, unit shipments of enterprise routers grew 5 percent in 2012, with low-end routers making up all revenue growth, at 20 percent, from the year, to represent the largest segment in terms of unit contributions. But mid-range router sales grew 8 percent in the fourth quarter compared to the third, suggesting the type of growth predicted in the report.
Infonetics Research also recently released highlights from its fourth quarter 2012 PON, FTTH and DSL Aggregation Equipment and Subscribers report, which include a 6-percent drop in global sales of broadband aggregation equipment for the quarter, to hit $1.56 billion.
In February, the market research firm released excerpts from its Q4 2012 CMTS and Edge QAM Hardware and Subscribers report, which predicts a strong 2013 with CMTS and QAM revenue growth of 20 percent or more.
