The global ethernet switch market is expected to reach a size of USD 6.84 billion by the end of 2023. It can display a staggering 4.07% CAGR during the forecast period.
Ethernet switches are networking devices attached to the router via a special cable allowing you access to the internet through a modem. It functions as a central place for computers, printers, and other networked devices for communicating with each other. The global Ethernet switch market report by Market Research Future (MRFR) looks at the new products launched by enterprise and service providers and the new strategies for the period of 2017 to 2023 due to the sudden pandemic brought by COVID-19.
The burgeoning telecommunication industry, proliferation of internet, use of smartphones, and evolution of communication networking technologies can fuel the market growth. Establishment of IT parks and investments by software behemoths for development of large applications can drive the demand for networking hardware. Furthermore, the offerings of broadband plans by service providers to organizations of various sizes can trigger the large market demand.
The scaling of data centers and the large bandwidth allocated by campuses and public utility stops to students and customers can spur the market demand effectively. Efficiency of network switches and low latency complaints can fuel its adoption in industrial hubs. The advent of industrial internet of things (IIoT) and emergence of connected devices can warrant its demand. Massive data speeds and online communication channels for meeting with clients will work for the market. The miniaturization of devices and demand for small boards can drive the growth in the coming years.
The COVID-19 pandemic had negatively impacted the market with disruptions in supply chains expected to affect the growth. Decline in economic growth and political tensions between the U.S. and China are likely contributors which can impede the market.
