Know More Details About the Report

Edge Computing Application Insights

On the basis of application, the market is segmented between, energy & utilities, industrial, transportation & logistics, smart cities/homes/building, healthcare, agriculture, retail, data centers, and others. Among these, energy & utilities emerge as the highest revenue application with more than 18% share of the total market value.

Increasing emphasis on efficient energy utilization is increasing the adoption of remote monitoring and controlling of energy grids. Edge computing examples such as Automatic Meter Reading (AMR), distributed generator management, and real-time analysis of electricity generation are giving tailwinds to the market. The energy & utility segment will continue to generate revenues at an astounding 29% CAGR through 2030.

Datacenter applications of edge computing aids interaction between smart devices as consumers adopt smart homes, smartwatches, and smart wearables that communicate with each other to deliver seamless user experiences. The datacenter application segment will present financially rewarding opportunities with a meteoric 32.5% CAGR from 2020 to 2030.

This can be attributed to the development of micro Edge Data Centers (EDC) that enables every smart device to record, store, and compute data independently of centralized data centers. Since these devices no longer need to transmit data every time, the speed of performance increases drastically. It is favorable factors such as these that will drive the demand from this application segment.

Edge Computing Component Insights

Hardware components account for a majority share of more than 46% from the total market value. Technologies such as EDC, AMR, and MEC employ edge nodes, gateways, sensors, and routers. This further increases the demand for hardware components of edge computing. The segment will grow at a stupendous ~28% CAGR through 2030.

As organizations across the world leverage industry 4.0 technologies such as artificial intelligence, machine learning, and the internet of things, they require high-performance hardware components to aid precision performance. However, the highest growth can be traced to the edge computing services segment.

Edge Computing Market Forecast For Regions

North America is the largest regional market accounting for 46% share of the total market value. Developed countries such as the US are homes to start-ups and prominent market players.

When coupled with the high-disposable income of consumers, the North American region will continue its share-wide dominance with over 27% CAGR during the projection period. Regions in Asia Pacific, namely, East Asia and South Asia & Oceania present the most remunerative opportunities from six major regions.

East Asia will grow at 30% CAGR and South Asia & Oceania will grow at 32% CAGR from 2020 to 2030. Booming digital economies in these regions such as Indonesia, India, Singapore, China, Japan, and South Korea are central to the skyrocketing growth.

The increasing disposable income of consumers and penetration of edge computing-based products such as electric vehicles, fitness trackers, and smart home appliances drive the demand in this region.

COVID-19 Impact Insights

The COVID-19 Pandemic has forced organizations to adopt digital collaboration and manufacturing. Organizations that were postponing their digital transformation are rapidly shifting their operations to tech-driven advanced technologies. This will increase the demand for edge computing components such as hardware (sensors, and edge nodes), software, services, and edge managed platforms.

Major players in the edge computing market are leveraging this pandemic driven digital transformation to garner revenues. Since edge computing products can be delivered without physical interaction, COVID-19 has had little impact on the market.

However, hardware component manufacturers face stiff production challenges. As global import and export is suspended, the supply chain of edge computing hardware has been disrupted. Market players are now focusing their efforts on selling software, services, and edge-managed platforms.

COVID-19 has created an increasing prospect pool for edge computing companies, as organizations look to judiciously spend their cash reserves in financially rewarding technologies.

Edge computing with its versatility of applications in various industry verticals is well poised to help organizations minimize their financial losses. Fast recovering countries such as Australia, and India will present profitable revenue opportunities amid the COVID-19 Pandemic.
