Asia/Pacific Semiannual Application Networking Equipment Tracker

Available Product Resources Factsheet

Continuous effort among IT organizations in consolidating datacenter/applications and managing an increasingly mobile distributed workforce has given rise to both opportunities and challenges. How do organizations ensure efficiency in this application-centric structure while keeping security threats at bay? Riding on this trend, the application networking equipment market in Asia/Pacific (excluding Japan) (APEJ) reached US$517 million in 2016. However, widespread adoption is far from reality, despite the continuous push from vendors. Market awareness has improved, but more needs to be done for IT managers to at least bring this up in their priority list. What are the real challenges in this market? IDC's Asia/Pacific Semiannual Application Networking Equipment Tracker® uncovers the current adoption trends, the market dynamics, and possible strategies that vendors could adopt. This tracker provides market size, market share, and forecast in two main market segments — datacenter switching and WAN application delivery in APEJ.
