SDN Orchestration Market Outlook – 2030    

The global SDN orchestration market size is expected to reach $117.27 billion by 2030 from $1.45 billion in 2020, growing at a CAGR of 56.30% from 2021 to 2030.   Software-defined networking (SDN) orchestration or SDN orchestration is the ability to program automated behaviors in a network to coordinate required networking hardware and software elements to support applications and services. SDN orchestration can start with customer service orders, generated by either manual tasks or customer-driven actions such as ordering of a service through a website. The application or service would then use SDN orchestration technology to provide the service. This might require setting up virtual network layers, server-based virtualization, or security services such as an encrypted tunnel.

SDN orchestration platforms can include many types of proprietary or open-source software, often built using common APIs that can tie into standard networking technologies. Some of the companies that supply or develop SDN orchestration market tools include Anuta Networks, Big Switch, CENX, Cisco Systems, Nuage Networks, and Overture Networks. Furthermore, with the introduction of software-defined networking (SDN), orchestration must take a new approach in serving the needs for the present more dynamic and complex service provider environments.


The global SDN orchestration market size is anticipated to witness significant growth during the forecast period. Factors, such as rise in demand for cloud services, technological advancements in SDN orchestration, and increase in network infrastructure drive the SDN orchestration market growth. Cloud services are enabling software-driven cloud networking across various industries, which integrate technologies for software-driven cloud networking, SDN, and cloud computing to design networks. Software-defined networking technologies enables network administrators to manage network services through a centralized management by virtualizing physical network connectivity. For instance, as per the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE, United States), there has been an increase in demand for cloud services across IT enterprises, owing to lowered investment costs and fixed costs for businesses, which is expected to increase demand for networking orchestration services to efficiently manage data traffic across the cloud.

However, concerns related to security is a major restraint for the global SDN orchestration market growth. In addition, emergence of 5G technology is expected to create opportunities for the SDN orchestration industry. As 5G deployment is significantly rising across all regions, significant rise in developing infrastructure is expected to create growth opportunities for the market. Emergence of 5G wireless network enabled the exploitation as well as development of massive capacity and massive connectivity of powerful & complex heterogeneous infrastructure. Hence, surge has been witnessed to enhance networks for future 5G needs to make 5G network more capable of handling the complex context of operations and support diverse set of new services and applications.
