SD-WAN market predicted to explode – are you ready?Published: 27th April 2016
According to the latest report from the world’s leading information technology research and advisory company, Gartner, the SD-WAN market is predicted to explode within the next few years.
- Today’s 1% Enterprise usage will increase significantly by the end of 2019 with an estimated 30% adopting the technology!
- In 2016 the estimated end-user spending will be between $25m and $50m.

Gartner - Market Guide for Software-Defined WAN
From a technology perspective, the SD-WAN concept is simple: Enterprise WAN edge devices forward traffic to other edge devices across a multi-service and/or multi-provider WAN, via centralised control. This enables network managers to configure application-based policy forwarding and security rules across performance-graded WAN paths.
For enterprises seeking a lean branch office setup, these emerging SD-WAN solutions are relatively easy to deploy in a gradual manner. Due to SD-WAN's strong benefits, Gartner believes that by the end of 2019, 30% of enterprises will use SD-WAN technology in all their branches, up from less than 1% today.
This is a fast-evolving technology, and while we do not officially track it as a unique market segment, we anticipate total end-user spending on SD-WAN solutions will be in the range of $25 million to $50 million in 2016, and that it will double in 2017.
Three emerging factors are driving demand to fully utilise internet and MPLS connections simultaneously, as one integrated WAN. These are:
- New application requirements
- Increased use of internet
- Adoption of public cloud services.
