Fog Computing Market Size Will Escalate Rapidly in the Near Future


Seattle, WA -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/02/2019 -- Fog computing is also referred to as fog networking, it is a decentralized computing infrastructure in which compute, data, storage and applications are located somewhere between the cloud and data source. It is also known as edge computing, as it serves the functions of storage, computing, and networking services between the cloud data centers, end enterprise and user devices.

Rising need for managing service offerings at the network edge to improve the efficiency and reduce the network bottlenecks is projected to fuel the growth over the forecast timeline

The advent of IoT and the internet has raised the usage of devices that led to extensive use of data generation and access requirements at the end-user are leading to the internet traffic. Traffic patterns vary based on the user inclination, however, they are concentrated in the metropolitan areas across the globe. Inadequacy of the cloud and internet networks to efficiently manage the data stream across its regional area also adds to the requirement of infrastructure in the proximity of the users. Moreover, the introduction of connected technologies such as connected homes, buildings, smart energy, connected factory operations, connected vehicles, and OTT content are some of the important factors projected to accelerate the demand for fog computing methodologies to deal with the network bottlenecks.

Need for low latency and high scalability for real-time application are projected to provide immense growth to the fog computing market. As mission-critical applications such as cloud robotics, fly-by-wire aircraft control, and automotive anti-lock brakes require real-time data processing. Control and management of the operation is directly proportional to the information gathered by the sensors and the feedback of control system. Event of the control system being run on the cloud may negatively impact the sense-process-actuate loops or unavailable due to communication failures. However, the need for low latency of the fog computing system can be used for executing control system processing which makes the real-time reaction feasible. This methods principally focus on the processing of the incoming data in closeness to the data source itself and decrease the burden on the cloud processing, therefore meeting the need for scalability, due to the rising number of endpoints.

The software segment accounted for nearly 65% revenue of the fog computing market, which is projected to maintain the dominating revenue segment over the forecast timeline

IT components costs have experienced a substantial decline over the past few years, coupled with the considerable technological advancement leaps in the processing and compactness over the past few years. Connectivity costs have experienced continuous price reductions with the introduction of advanced communication technologies such as 3G, 4G, and LTE. Moreover, software as a Service (SaaS) and the usability of these in analytics, e-commerce, collaboration and other business functions have experienced rapid penetration at exponential rates. Therefore, the software solution segment is projected to dominate the market over the forecast timeline
