“The vendors in the global CDN market can be categorized into pure-play vendors and non-pure-play vendors. Pure-play vendors focus solely on the CDN market and are not diversified in their interests. Non-pure-play vendors are diversified and have their presence in multiple segments, providing a range of products,” said Soumya Mutsuddi, one of Technavio’s lead industry analysts for media and entertainment research.

“Some of the leading pure-play CDN vendors are Akamai Technologies, CDNetworks, Limelight Networks, Edgecast Network, Mirror Image Internet, Tata Communications, and Internap Network Services. Some of the leading non-pure-play CDN vendors are Level 3 Communications, AT&T, BCE, Verizon Communications, and Korea Telecom,” added Soumya.

Some of the other driving forces behind the growth of the global content delivery network (CDN) market are as follows:

  • High server availability
  • Need for efficient bandwidth use
  • Faster load time
  • Efficient data traffic management

High server availability

One of the main factors that drives the demand for CDNs is the improved availability of services provided by these networks. With the use of CDNs, online assets can be distributed across diverse regions, as these networks can automatically sense the availability of servers and accordingly divert content and network traffic to these servers. With this process, content providers can offer customers an enhanced user experience by minimizing latency. Moreover, as they facilitate instant user redirection, CDNs can provide 100% server availability, even during power failures or in the event of network and hardware issues.

Need for efficient bandwidth use

With growing digital content and efficient hardware to support rich content, it has become necessary for telco operators and other content providers to provide streamlined and lag free connectivity. With the growing size of video content streamed, content service providers are opting for CDN services to optimize their bandwidth utilization. CDNs provide better channel efficiency, which in turn facilitates effective use of bandwidth to deploy the static content.

Faster load time

CDN providers have servers located in various regions to speed up transmission of data by directing it through the shortest available route, thereby significantly reducing load time. This is extremely beneficial when streaming audio and video files, as data transmission can be accomplished with minimal pauses and interruptions. Moreover, the immense growth of data traffic over the last decade has made it vitally important to minimize load time to enhance the end-user experience.

Efficient data traffic management

CDNs are highly scalable and have several servers that provide immense bandwidth capacity. Therefore, whenever there is a need to accommodate a sudden surge in Internet traffic without compromising user experience, CDNs are deployed to efficiently process data traffic.
