In 2021, content delivery networks held a 27.5% share of the global managed network services market. The growing demand for rich video content among online users, as well as the trend of digitization in organizations across end-user verticals, drives the overall CDN market demand.

Simultaneously, the deployment of digital solutions based on IoT networks and artificial intelligence across various industries is driving market participants to develop and promote customized industry-specific CDN solutions.
Broadcasters are offering latency-free data over the network and improving video delivery quality as OTT and VOD services become more popular. Continuous investment in network infrastructure around the world, particularly in emerging economies like India, has improved overall network connectivity, bandwidth, and coverage. These advancements have been critical in ensuring that consumers can stay connected, receive instant updates, and access ready-made media data. This is a motivator for broadcasters to improve content delivery while also delivering diverse data for consumption across multiple applications.
