Market Overview

The Application Delivery Controllers (ADC) Market was valued at USD 2.40 billion in 2019?and is expected to reach USD 3.40 billion by 2025, at a CAGR of 6% over the forecast period 2020?- 2025. Increasing efforts from enterprises to improve business agility and mobility, involving application delivery network solutions, are expected to fuel the demand for application delivery network (ADN). Due to the rising cloud applications and data traffic, and ADCs being an integral part of ADN, ADCs are expected to witness a higher adoption rate in the application delivery networks.

  • Currently, people are using more smartphones, tablets, etc., instead of laptops and computers to surf the web which is creating a lot of data. Smartphones are handier compared to tablets and computers. This is creating a performance and experience gap for mobile users since they are accessing web sites and applications designed for high-speed internet networks and application delivery controllers can help optimize performance on mobile networks.
  • ADCs are also placed in the demilitarized zone (DMZ) between the outer firewall or router and a web farm, as it is used as a reverse proxy between the internet and the data center network.
  • Although ADCs are being deployed predominantly to support on-premise legacy applications, other use cases are emerging as well. Several other deployments, such as public infrastructure as a service (IaaS) clouds, for instance, Microsoft Azure and Amazon Web Services, are also gaining popularity. The cost of the set-up of ADCs is high and this is acting as a limitation for the ADCs market.Scope of the Report
