The network automation market size is projected to grow from USD 2.9 billion in 2020 to USD 8.9 billion by 2025, at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 24.8% during the forecast period. The major factors driving the growth of the network automation market include increasing network traffic and cloud infrastructure leading to a significant transition in data centers, increasing adoption of connected devices, increasing adoption of automation technologies such as AI and machine learning, rising adoption of virtual and software-defined infrastructure, and surge in human error rates in manual systems causing network downtime.

By component, servicessegment to grow at a higher CAGR during the forecast period
Services play a vital role in the deployment and integration of next-generation networking solutions in the business environment of enterprises. Services are considered as the backbone of network automation as they are instrumental in fulfilling the customized requirements of clients. Moreover, services are important for training employees regarding the use of solutions and developing their analytical understanding for enhancing the Return on Investment (ROI) from automation solutions.

By solution, intent-based networking segment to grow at a higher CAGR during the forecast period
Intent-based networking offers enhanced access control, scalability, security, and multivendor device management in an enterprise network. It takes business policy as its input to convert the requirement to a network configuration and generates a network design. Moreover, it validates whether the network can deliver the intended outcome.Intent-based networking continuously monitors the network status and collects network data, such as traffic logs, to assess the state of the network and determine the optimum route.

By deployment type, cloudsegmentto lead the market during the forecast period
Cloud network automation enables fast and secure network configuration by leveraging cloud computing capabilities. Moreover, the cloud deployment model scales a solution’s capacity to handle enormous network application traffic. SMEs prefer cloud-based deployment, as cloud-based solutions are cost-effective and easy to deploy (as cloud deployment does not require dedicated IT staff). With the adoption of these solutions, small enterprises are able to collect and analyze data, thus improving customer services. Presently, the demand for cloud-based network automation solutions is increasing over their on-premises counterparts, owing to the various advantages offered by the cloud deployment model.
