The global application delivery controller market exhibited strong growth during 2015-2020. An application delivery controller (ADC) is a computer networking device that is used in data centers for maintaining uninterrupted communication channels. The controller is commonly placed between the firewall and application servers to manage the flow of data between computing systems and optimize application performance, availability and security. It can also perform various other functions, including application acceleration, traffic shaping, content switching and multiplexing. It uses techniques such as application compression, classification and reverse proxy caching to improve the overall functioning of the system. Owing to this, it finds extensive applications across various industries, including information technology (IT), telecommunications, healthcare, education, retail and manufacturing.

Increasing digitization, along with the widespread utilization of cloud-computing solutions across the globe, represents as the key factors driving the growth of the market. Furthermore, the introduction of virtual ADC systems is also providing a boost to the market growth. In comparison to the traditionally used tools, virtual ADC offers various network and application innovations, such as clustering, intelligent architecture and deep packet inspection. These innovations facilitate flexible operations and enhanced productivity of the network. Additionally, the widespread adoption of next-generation ADCs by small and medium enterprises (SME), is acting as another growth-inducing factor. These organizations rely primarily on web-based services and applications to run their operations, as ADC significantly aids in monitoring data security and maintaining organizational privacy. Other factors, including the integration of ADCs with Artificial Intelligence (AI), Internet of Things (IoT) and Big Data, along with the increasing number of cyber-attacks and anonymous security threats due to rising penetration of wireless communications, are projected to drive the market further. Looking forward, the global application delivery controller market is expected to grow at a CAGR of around 8% during the forecast period (2021-2026).
