In the past few years, businesses are exhibiting higher preference for private cloud, public cloud, hybrid cloud, and multi-cloud solutions over conventional on-premise data centers, owing to their low operational costs, high computation power, and their capability of scaling-up or scaling-down workload facilities. The growing demand for cloud-based solutions would bolster the requirement for better infrastructure capable of handling the rising high bandwidth and network traffic needs. SDN solutions hold tremendous potential in enhancing the use of network infrastructure, which is likely to contribute in increasing the adoption of these solutions by enterprises. In addition, the rising demand for intent-based networking is anticipated to positively impact the market and contribute to its robust growth over the next few years. In the past few years, market vendors have been developing intent-based networking solutions for complementing their SDN offerings. Intent-based networking leverages artificial intelligence (AI) and machine leaning (ML) technologies for fully automating the administrative tasks within the network. The growing demand for server virtualization, cloud services, and data center consolidation are some other key factors that would play a vital role in augmenting growth in the global SDN market. Technological advancements and increasing adoption of bring-your-own-device (BYOD) policy in organizations are expected to serve as an opportunity for future market growth. However, security concerns due to the presence of a centralized controller that can be targeted for failure or attack of SDN networks can hinder the market growth. In addition, lack of standardization and awareness are anticipated to further inhibit growth in the SDN market.
