Market Size and Forecast (2016-2024)

On the back of rising automation and adoption of IoT, the global market for commercial routers is expected to grow at a CAGR of 6.8% during the forecast period.

Medium sized enterprises command the highest demand for commercial routers as compared to other kinds of enterprises. These enterprises have adequate capital and requirements to optimize processes through technology, and are therefore increasing expenditure on connectivity. This segment is also set to witness the highest growth during the forecast period.

Geographically, the North American region occupies the largest market share in terms of revenue. This can be attributed to the high internet penetration rates and heavy investment in technology in the region. As per World Bank data, the US spent 2.72% of its GDP on research and development activities in 2013, which is among the highest in the world. The US government has also approved the E-Rate Funding Program, which provides discounts of 20-90% to assist schools and libraries in the US obtain affordable internet access. On the back of high rates of internet access and connectivity, North America is also expected to witness the highest growth during the forecast period.

Key Drivers

Global rise in internet usage and increased connectivity are the key factors driving the market for commercial routers. More and more organizations are opting for VPNs and using M2M communication to enhance information flow and management in the workplace.

The rising IoT industry has significantly enhanced demand for commercial routers, as enterprises increasingly use IoT technologies and platforms to integrate and optimize operations.

Another key factor that is propelling growth in the market for commercial routers is their increasing usage in the retail industry. As the sales processes get digitized, routers are required for smooth and efficient functioning of PoS (Point of Sales) machines, vending machines and Radio Frequency Identification systems. This is to enhance customer experience and build and maintain large customer base. Rise in the usage of location based services has further bolstered demand for commercial routers.

Universities and educational institutions have also begun using VPNs and building Wi-Fi enabled campuses to enhance the learning processes. With the advent of smart classrooms, the need for connectivity has increased, further driving demand for commercial routers.

Restraints and Risk Factors

Despite the advent of IoT and rising internet penetration, 60% of the world remains excluded from the world economy as of 2016, according to World Bank data. Hence, restraining growth of the market for commercial routers, especially in regions with low internet access rates like regions of Asia or Sub Saharan Africa. Unwillingness of businesses to adopt advanced technologies in economies with low digitization levels might pose risks to entrants in the market.

Development of technologies like ZigBee and Zwave that consume lesser amounts of energy is likely to give competition to traditional Wi-Fi technologies.
