Dublin, July 7, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/t3vxj3/content_delivery) has announced the addition of the "Global Content Delivery Networks Market 2014-2019: Delivery Technologies, Hardware, Analytics, Monitoring, Encoding, Transparent Caching, DRM, CMS, OVP" report to their offering.

With the expansion in Internet usage and rising deployment of online content, especially multimedia, Over-the-Top (OTT), and video, advanced solutions provided by the content delivery networks market are required for efficient delivery to the end user. Simple content delivery solutions often exhibit drawbacks such as congestion and bottlenecks. When traffic load increases or any server fails, these solutions are not able to manage real-time delivery. This may result in many content delivery requests being lost. Moreover, existing techniques are not cost effective when it comes to storage and bandwidth.

Content Delivery Networks (CDNs) developed to counter these limitations of Internet for delivering Quality of Service (QoS) when users access online content. CDNs provide advanced Internet infrastructure that is needed to deliver web content proficiently. The technologies made available by the CDN market offer faster delivery of web pages and video content requested by the user with a benefit of network optimization and low bandwidth cost.

Emergence and exponential growth of the video and OTT content over Internet are the main imperatives for the evolution of CDN. Video and OTT content such as live broadcasting and video-on-demand consume more network bandwidth in comparison to static web pages. This increased online content and more network bandwidth consumption have evolved the concept of CDN. CDNs help to store this content in a surrogate server closer to the user; on request from the end user, the content gets delivered through this surrogate server instead of repeated retrieval from the remote server. This helps in network optimization and in delivering good quality video content. Increased video traffic and OTT content over Internet has created a large demand for QoS, especially for video content.

CDN adoption is increasing due to its increasing implementation globally specially in North America (NA) and Asia Pacific (APAC) regions. The media and entertainment vertical has the highest share in the overall overall content delivery networks (CDN) market. Other than the media and entertainment vertical, CDN has a wide portfolio in advertising, gaming, e-commerce, ISP, mobile operators, consumer electronics, online music retailers, and healthcare, higher education, and government verticals. The market is expected to grow from $3.71 billion in 2014 to $12.16 billion by 2019, at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 26.8%.
