Before CDN services existed, a user in France, for example, would get their data feed straight from a company's web server, perhaps in the US. Content delivery networks allow the user in France to download their data from a server in France, decreasing download times for global content. The traditional CDN providers involve a large set of servers, which are strategically deployed across the globe and balance the load on the existing networks. The goal of CDNs is to provide high availability and high performance by distributing the service spatially relative to end-users. You can find CDN Market Size, CDN Market Share, and other CDN Industry trends and statistics below.
The market growth for the Content Delivery Network - CDN Industry is attributed to the growing volumes of content exchanged over the internet, the expanding speed of internet and cellular networks, the increasing consumption of data on smartphones, and the general trends of cloud adoption and cloud computing. The rising use of web-based, high-definition video content, and the consumer shift to mobile content and multi-platform viewing has created a tremendous market opportunity for CDN providers and the rise of many different CDN solutions. These service providers help ensure uninterrupted content delivery over a high-speed data network, particularly to cater to the rising demand for Video-on-Demand (VOD) and Over the Top (OTT) services. The crowding competitive landscape has put pressure on prices. However, this is offset by many companies increasingly choosing multiple CDN vendors for their content distribution network. The rollout of 5G will help ensure fast growth for the CDN market and the CDN Industry.
