Impact of COVID-19 on the Network Function Virtualization Market

The COVID-19 pandemic has adversely hit many economies around the globe. The combat measures such as lockdowns, social distancing, and quarantines to fight COVID-19 have put strong adverse impact on many industries across the globe including IT & telecommunication sector. With several employees working from home and students learning virtually, enterprise virtual private network (VPN) servers have now become a lifeline to organizations /schools. According to UNESCO, 850 million students are now learning and attending classes from home while hundreds of millions of workers have suddenly switched to remote working, creating an enormous change in communications network usage. Network traffic in Europe has increased by approximately 50%, as much of the population is confined to their homes.

The impact of COVID-19 outbreak on the global network function virtualization market has been started in early 2020 in China, one of the world’s largest producers and consumers for endpoint devices including smartphones, computers, and tablets. The closing of production plants for few months in China, and restrictions on export and import of the endpoint devices to and from the China’s restricted area affected supply chain and has strongly impacted the production, sales, and operation of this industry. Besides, in March 2020, 3GPP, the global association developing the 5G technology, announced a three-month delay in the timeline for the completion of 5G specifications due to COVID 19. Delay in releases will result in the slowdown of the commercial development of NFV devices and 5G deployments. The COVID-19 pandemic has thrown the global economic activities into an unprecedented spiral. Therefore, supply chain disruptions and delay in the release of 5G specifications is projected to adversely affect the global network function virtualization market and thereby the market revenue in 2020 and 2021. However, several businesses are exerting extensively in order to bring NFV market back on track. Moreover, local governments are also undertaking several relief steps to mitigate the negative impact of COVID-19. As a result, the network security virtualization market is expected to slowly regain its original track beyond 2024.

Quick Get:

The growth in this market is majorly attributed to factors such as increased network complexities and ever-increasing demand for cloud-based services, rapid deployment of IoT on a considerable scale, increasing demand for data center consolidation and server virtualization, and need for security agility. Besides, the rapid proliferation of disruptive technologies in emerging economies of Asia Pacific including China and India is offering significant growth opportunities for network function virtualization market. However, the growing number of security risks across the NFV infrastructure and negative impact of COVID-19 on the global economies emerged as notable restrain for the global network function virtualization market.
