Ethernet Switch Market Surges Past $31B in 2018, According to 650 Group

February 26, 2019

PORTOLA VALLEY, Calif., Feb. 26, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- A newly released report by 650 Group, a leading Market Intelligence Research firm for communications, data center and cloud markets, indicates that the Ethernet Switch Market grew 10% Y/Y on strong campus and data center growth in 2018 to slightly over $31 Billion. The report also indicated China revenue reached an all-time high in the year on robust campus and data center growth.

“The Data Center market continued to surge despite some concerns of Cloud CAPEX growth rates slowing. There is a disconnect in Cloud CAPEX and networking CAPEX; we note that networking CAPEX continues to be robust, despite overall CAPEX growth rate contractions amongst the largest Cloud providers,” said Alan Weckel, Founder and Technology Analyst at 650 Group. “Overall CAPEX growth rate slowdown is being driven by Compute and Storage. 400G seems to have pushed out about one full quarter as well from both a system and optics view with the market anticipated second generation 400 Gbps product announcements by the end of the calendar year.”

The Quarterly Ethernet Switch report also indicates the Cisco and HPE Aruba were responsible for over half the revenue growth in the Enterprise market while Arista and White Box were responsible for over half the revenue growth in the Data Center Market. The Quarterly Ethernet Switch report related to this segment indicates that Arista, Cisco, HPE, and Juniper are the market leaders in the Ethernet Switch Market in 2018 in the United States while H3C, Huawei, and Ruijie are the market leaders in China.
