Fog Computing Market Is Driven By Growing Adoption Of Smart Devices Till 2025: Grand View Research, Inc.

“Grand View Research, Inc. – Market Research And Consulting.rn”
The global fog computing market is expected to reach USD 617.3 million by 2025, according to a report by Grand View Research, Inc. The increasing demand from end-use industries is expected to propel the industry growth. Fog computing is an advancement in Internet of Things (IoT) that has shifted data processing out of the cloud into devices.

According to a report by Grand View Research, Inc., the global fog computing market is anticipated to reach at USD 617.3 million by 2025. Growing adoption of smart devices coupled with rising need to address problems related to mobile traffic will impel demand for fog computing over the forecast period (from 2018 to 2025). Rising penetration of cloud and Internet-of-Things (IoT) services is expected to have a positive impact on the market growth. Shifting preference from cloud to fog computing due to reduced risk of cyber-attacks and low latency is also likely to augment market development. The development of 5G technology has resulted in the emergence of edge computing data architecture with low latency problems. This will also contribute toward the growth of fog computing market.

The ability of fog computing to filter large volumes of data and transfer only relevant information to cloud for better real-time analytics can further stimulate market expansion. Moreover, rising demand for Machine-to-Machine (M2M) communication in various organizations is estimated to drive the market during the forecast period. The global fog computing market can be segregated on the basis of hardware, solution, application, and region. Based on hardware, the market can be categorized into routers and switches, IP video cameras, sensors, micro data center, and gateways. In 2016, sensors segment accounted for over 30% of the overall revenue share owing to high demand for decentralized platforms. Moreover, system integrators rely on MEMS sensors owing to their compact size. This is expected to contribute toward the segment expansion over the forecast period.
