This IDC study provides a forecast for the worldwide Ethernet switch market for 2015-2019. In Worldwide Enterprise Communications and Datacenter Network Infrastructure 2015 Top 10 Predictions, IDC explored a number of emerging trends materially impacting the Ethernet switch market. Among those are trends that threaten to commoditize segments of the market, such as bare-metal switching in the datacenter. At the same time, there are trends that have the potential to spur refresh cycles and significant innovation in the market, such as the rise to dominance of the 802.11ac WLAN standard, the anticipated proliferation of IoT endpoints and the emergence of unified wired-wireless switching at the edge of the network. The forces that are predicted to bring about concurrent standardization and differentiation within the switch market are highly nuanced, and their long-term impact has yet to be seen.
"Growth of the worldwide Ethernet switch market continues to be affected by the dueling forces of increased demand and availability of higher speeds and average selling price declines. Workloads based on 3rd Platform technologies, particularly cloud and mobility, are driving upgrades from the datacenter to the core to the campus. This has led to innovative use case-specific switching solutions and the advent of new speeds. However, standardization factors such as white-box switching will continue to drive down average switch port prices for the foreseeable future, especially in the datacenter." - Nolan Greene, research analyst, Enterprise Networks.
