Multi-Cloud Networking Market Research, 2031
The global multi-cloud networking market size was valued at $2.5 billion in 2021, and is projected to reach $19.9 billion by 2031, growing at a CAGR of 23.3% from 2022 to 2031.
Multi-cloud networking is the orchestration of cloud service delivery and the extension of cloud services from one enterprise data center to another. By leveraging multiple clouds, businesses can enjoy a host of benefits, including increased agility, improved performance and enhanced disaster recovery.
Multi-cloud is not the same as hybrid cloud, which blends the use of private and public cloud environments. Rather, multi-cloud takes a mixed approach, using the best services from various providers to create a custom solution for an organization’s specific needs. This approach allows organizations to take advantage of the latest innovations from each vendor while avoiding vendor lock-in and ensuring maximum flexibility. Multi-cloud networking can be complex, but it provides a powerful way to build a custom, scalable and highly-available cloud infrastructure.
Factors such as increase in adoption of multi-cloud networking solutions and services and rise in demand for data recovery along with contingency planning are projected to drive the growth of the multi-cloud networking market during the forecast period. Moreover, increase in adoption of cloud computing and rise in internet penetration boost the market growth. However, concerns associated with data security and privacy protection and lack of technical expertise in multi-cloud networking restrain the market growth. On the contrary, surge in demand for cloud-based networking solutions and rise in number of SMEs are projected to provide major lucrative opportunities for the growth of the multi-cloud networking market.

Top impacting factors
Need for disaster recovery and contingency plan
With the rising IT consumerization and the increased usage of computing devices, the rate of data generation has increased multifold. Multi-cloud disaster recovery entails storing data with more than one cloud vendor. Moreover, multi-cloud backups can be as simple as sending data to multiple provider, such as Google clod platform or Amazon AWS, for many organizations. In addition, cloud disaster recovery is a cloud computing service that allows system data to be stored and recovered on a remote cloud-based platform. Users need to store important documents, files, and other information as a backup in case of contingencies. Furthermore, since individual users cannot afford expensive hardware for storing data as a backup, there is a need for low cost, personal storage services. Thus, users having a limited budget use the multi-cloud networking to store, access, and share data from anywhere using any device, thereby encouraging the growth of this market. These are the major driving factors for the multi-cloud networking market growth.
Increasing Deployment of Cloud Service Providers (CSPs)
As more organizations move to the cloud, they need to be proactive in securing their cloud applications, and multi-cloud networking provides a comprehensive level of visibility, compliance, and data security for the cloud transformation of the organization. Moreover, due to the explosive rate of enterprises moving toward the use of cloud service providers (CSPs), organizations are seeking new methods and best practices to implement security controls in cloud environments. In addition, many key players are enhancing their services to provide security for sensitive enterprise information. For instance, in February 2022, F5 launched application security and delivery offerings, a range of solutions built on distributed cloud services for more security. The goal is to streamline security and bring automation within processes to allow application teams to focus on the delivery of functionality and features to improve customer experience. Such factors are anticipated to fuel the growth of multi-cloud networking market in the near future.
Limited technical expertise among enterprises
Enterprises are rapidly moving toward digitalization by adopting emerging technologies to automate and accelerate cloud has become an essential part of enterprises IT strategy, due to its benefits such as low costs and enhanced business agility. Moreover, the adoption of cloud computing services increases the demand for technically skilled labor and efficient change management to effectively implement and run cloud services in enterprises. These days, enterprises are more focused on driving profits rather than upgrading employee skills by providing appropriate training. In addition, companies are resistant to adopting the maturation process and willing to stick to traditional infrastructures or software services to avoid initial costs. These factors result in skills shortage and may lead to business saturation. Therefore, these factors might lead to customer profit and loss for companies not adopting new changes and would enable competitors to increase their market shares and customer base.
Rise in number of SMEs for adoption of multi-cloud networking
SME’s face budget constraints and constantly struggle to make regulatory needs. Moreover, it is difficult for SME’s to efficiently focus on every business activities, as they have smaller IT teams and face a shortage of skilled employees. These complications are compelling SME’s to adopt cloud computing services, as they help in easily meeting regulatory needs, lowering capital expenditure (CAPEX) and operating expenditure (OPEX), enhancing security, increasing storage and flexibility and automating software updates and business tasks, leading to improved employee productivity. In addition, advantages such as scalability, as pay-as-you- go and easy access to information are helping SME’s to access and use cloud services in a faster way. These factors are creating new opportunities for cloud vendors in the market. Therefore, these factors will provide major lucrative opportunities in the growth of the multi-cloud networking market share.
