DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The "Ethernet Storage Fabric Market by Device (Switches, Adapters), Switching Port (10 GbE to 25 GbE, 100 GbE & Above), Storage Type (Block Storage, Hyper-Converged Infrastructure), Automation (Enterprise Data Center), & Geography - Global forecast 2024" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.
The global ESF market is estimated to be valued at USD 1.09 billion in 2018 and is likely to reach USD 2.26 billion by 2024, at a CAGR of 12.7% from 2019 to 2024.
Ethernet storage fabric (ESF) leverages the speed, flexibility, and cost efficiencies of Ethernet, along with the best switching hardware and software packaged in ideal form factors to provide performance, scalability, intelligence, high availability, and simplified management. ESF provides the foundation for the fastest and most efficient way of networking storage. An ESF operates on purpose-built switches, adapters, and controllers which are enhanced to offer the highest levels of performance, lowest latencies, and zero packet loss with unique form factors.
Currently, ESF is widely used in the enterprise data center and cloud service provider data centers, telecommunications, and government applications for storage and lossless network purpose. In 2018, the enterprise data center application is likely to account for the largest market size, in terms of value, followed by the cloud service provider data center application.
The need for simplified data center management, rapid adoption of Ethernet storage fabric, and a growing need for enterprise mobility to improve efficiency are driving the growth of the ESF market. Growing bandwidth requirements in data centers and increasing need for technologically advanced storage solutions create lucrative opportunities for the ESF market. However, creating compatibility with different data center architecture poses a major challenge to the players in the ESF market.
The market for switches is gaining traction due to their attractiveness in terms of economics and easy deployment. Moreover, the expansion of enterprise and cloud service provider data centers and increasing adoption of virtualization technology boost the demand for switches with higher bandwidth. The competitive landscape shows that the product launches and developments were the key strategy adopted by ESF market players during 2017-2018. Other strategies adopted by players to grow in the ESF market during this period are agreements, partnerships, collaborations, mergers and acquisitions, and expansions.
