Market Report Description
The Global Load Balancer Market size is expected to reach $11.8 billion by 2028, rising at a market growth of 14.4% CAGR during the forecast period.
A load balancer divides network or app traffic among a group of servers. Applications' capacity (concurrent users) as well as dependability are increased with the help of load balancers. By handling application-specific duties and reducing the load on servers caused by managing and maintaining network sessions and applications, they enhance the overall performance of applications.
Layer 4 and Layer 7 are the two categories into which load balancers are often divided. The information provided in transport and network layer protocols is used by layer 4 load balancers. Requests are distributed by layer 7 load balancers depending on information from application layer protocols like HTTP.
Through technologies like Azure Application Gateway, which provides enhanced and organized accessibility in communication at the security & network layers, load-balancing solutions are already being incorporated into business contexts. Due to the rise in cyberattacks, including phishing, malware, and Denial of Service (DoS) attacks targeting corporate networks, load balancing services are also essential.
The ongoing deployment of IoT networks as well as the resulting rise in IoT traffic are further encouraging signs for the market's expansion. The aggressive implementation of the Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) policy by numerous enterprises is also anticipated to increase the uptake of load balancing solutions.
COVID-19 Impact Analysis
The COVID-19 outbreak and the ensuing limitations had a negligible effect on the load balancer market. Many companies are undergoing digital transformation. The increase in government spending on network infrastructure is to be responsible for this. The increased internet traffic brought on by the trend of remote working is also expected to boost the demand for load balancing globally. Additionally, it is anticipated that demand for load balancing across would rise due to an increase in internet traffic brought on by the trend of remote work. Also, the trend toward working from home is expected to make more people use the internet, which will increase the need for load balancing.
Market Growth Factors
Rising Use of Cloud-Based Load-Balancing Services
When it comes to the adoption of cloud computing, the IT and telecommunications sector is growing the quickest. Many firms are concentrating on providing quick responses to user or customer requests as a result of rising interconnectivity. The rise in internet connections has accelerated cloud usage, notably for apps and storage. This has led to a greater demand for effectively balancing workloads on multi-load servers.
Grown Network Complexity Rising Need for Load Balancers
The operation of businesses in the telecommunications industry has been revolutionized as a result of load balancers. The telecommunications industry has been forced to implement load-balancing solutions as a result of the proliferation of trends such as connectivity to the internet, Wi-Fi, 4G technology, working from home, and cloud computing. Because of these shifts in the industry, there has been an increase in the need for load-balancing services, which is contributing to the overall expansion of the market.
Marketing Restraining Factor
Lack of Infrastructure
The absence of IT & Telecom infrastructure in emerging nations is one of the major obstacles to entry into the market. Although many countries work to thrive in the harsh competition by updating their infrastructure, the market expansion is constrained by financial limitations and the intricacy of legacy designs. The increased use of connection-based load balancers has also limited the sale of hardware networking solutions in the telecommunications sector.
On the basis of type, the load balancer markets is classified into local load balancer, and global load balancer. In 2021, the global load-balancing segment witnessed the highest revenue share in the load balancer market. The benefit of providing support for local or regional interruptions, mission-critical operations continuity, and worldwide catastrophe recovery can be credited with the segment's rise.
Based on component, the load balancer market is divided into hardware, software and services. The software segment acquired a substantial revenue share in the load balancer market in 2021. Demand for load balancers is being driven by a growing requirement for sophisticated network management systems to handle complex network traffic. Another element propelling the market's expansion is the pressing need to guarantee communication transparency at both the device and system levels.
By end-use, the load balancer market is divided into BFSI, retail, government, manufacturing, IT & Telecom, healthcare and others. The healthcare segment procured a substantial revenue share in the load balancer market in 2021. Sensitive information such as bank account information, patient social security numbers, and private health information can be found in medical records. In light of the pandemic outbreak, it is especially important to secure medical records.
Enterprise Size Outlook
Based on enterprise size, the load balancer market is fragmented into large enterprises and small & medium enterprises (SMEs). The small & medium enterprise segment recorded a significant revenue share in the load balancer market in 2021. The segment's expansion is due to the availability of different server load-balancers, which has increased flexibility in controlling website traffic. It is possible to do a number of server maintenance tasks without having an impact on the website's uptime.
Based on deployment, the load balancer market is bifurcated into cloud and on-premise. In 2021, the on-premise segment registered the highest revenue share in the load balancer market. Applications running in the data center on-premises can be load balanced using on-premises load balancers, which are software-based load balancers. To get the best application performance, businesses should install load balancers in the same environment as the components they are balancing.
