Global Network Automation Market to Grow at a CAGR of 24% During 2021-2026, Aided by the Increasing Automation of Network in Government Agencies

According to a new report by EMR titled, ‘Global Network Automation Market Report and Forecast 2021-2026’, the global market for network automation attained a value of about USD 3.1 billion in 2020. The industry is further expected to grow at a CAGR of 24% in the forecast period of 2021-2026 to reach a value of approximately USD 11.3 billion by 2026.

The increasing automation of networks by government agencies to boost network efficiency and increase cost-effectiveness is aiding the market growth. As various public agencies are increasingly attempting to enhance their services and improve consumer experiences, network automation is deployed to respond to online queries effectively as well as provide flexibility for various applications. Moreover, the growing digitisation in the public sector is surging network congestion, which makes the automation of networks essential to enhance operational efficiency, hence propelling the market growth. The increasing trend of hybrid work in government agencies in the wake of the COVID-19 crisis is expected to further surge the automation of networks to provide a wide range of network bandwidth, which is projected to fuel the market growth in the forecast period.

IBM Corporation (NYSE: IBM), one of the leading companies in the industry, announced in June 2021 its latest artificial intelligence (AI)-powered automation software based on hybrid cloud. The software is expected to aid communication service providers (CSPs) deliver 5G cost-effectively and rapidly to consumers. Artificial intelligence (AI)-powered automation enables providers to manage networks effectively while engineering new services quickly to boost consumers’ experience. The software is projected to enable zero-touch provisioning of new services to facilitate simplification of management to enhance real-time visibility across networks. It also generalises modelling of the network lifecycle, automates resources for tests, pre-production, and production, as well as provide a real-time view of live networks performance to enable efficient network monitoring. The development of such innovative devices is estimated to increase the automation of networks and bolster the market growth in upcoming years.
