The global content delivery network (CDN) market is expected to be valued at 27.01 Billion by 2027 from USD 11.42 billion in 2019, registering a CAGR of 11.2% through the forecast period. A content delivery network (CDN), also dubbed content distribution network, is a highly-distributed network of proxy servers and data centers that facilitate the loading of web page content and help users worldwide consume the same high-quality content. In the present day, content delivery networks serve an increasingly large portion of the Internet content, including media files, documents, software, applications, social media sites, on-demand streaming media, and live streaming media. Numerous content owners around the world, such as e-commerce vendors and media companies, are associated with CDN operators to get their content smoothly delivered to the end-users. These CDN operators pay various Internet service providers (ISPs), network operators, and carriers for hosting their data center servers. Therefore, a CDN accelerates content delivery to different geographic locations by replicating the content and directing it to the users through the nearest data center. Akamai, Amazon Web Services, Google Cloud CDN, Microsoft Azure CDN, Cloudflare, CacheFly, and KeyCDN are among the world’s top CDN service providers.

The surging need for effective solutions for uninterrupted content delivery, augmenting demand for rich video and audio content, rising trend of digitization across numerous industry verticals, growing demand for improved QoS (Quality of Service), and the considerably growing online traffic are the pivotal factors leading to the global content delivery network (CDN) market growth. Online gaming companies are heavily investing in CDNs for high-quality content delivery and enhanced user experience. The escalating demand for VOD (video-on-demand) and the rising proliferation of OTT (over-the-top) platforms are significantly bolstering the content delivery network (CDN) market growth, thereby encouraging CDN service providers to introduce more advanced, cloud-based solutions and services. Moreover, the growing penetration of mobile devices like smartphones and tablets, broader access to the Internet, higher investments in network infrastructure, and improved 4G and 5G network connectivity create higher growth avenues for this market over the forecast years.
