Video Streaming Drives Global Video CDN Market 2014 - 2018 Research Report


Dallas, TX -- (ReleaseWire) -- 04/07/2014 -- adds Global Video CDN Market 2014-2018 a new market research report to its store. With the unprecedented increase of data on service providers' networks, big companies now find it financially advantageous to build their own CDNs for consumers rather than outsourcing them. Recently, Apple Inc., which earlier relied on Akamai and Level 3 to deliver Apple-related content including apps, iTunes videos, and software updates for iOS and OS X platforms, built its own CDN to serve its consumers. This development is expected to affect the revenues of Akamai and Level 3 in the coming years, depending upon the scale and location of the network. In 2012, Netflix announced that it was shifting most of its streaming video traffic to a single purpose CDN Open Connect owned by Netflix, which affected the revenue of Akamai and Limelight. Netflix is one of the largest sources of internet traffic and its Open Connect CDN reduced its reliance on commercial CDNs. Big brands are the reason for this huge increase in the internet traffic including Amazon, Apple, Google, and Microsoft. The inclination of the major service providers to own their dedicated CDNs is expected to be one of the key highlights during the forecast period.

Analysts forecast the Global Video CDN market will grow at a CAGR of 29.66 percent over the period 2013-2018.
