The growth is attributed to various strategies implemented by major market players to expand their footprints. Citing an instance, AWS introduced CloudFront Origin Shield in October 2020. It is a caching layer that enhances cache performance of CDN while reducing network load. The company states that it has decreased multi-CDN workloads by nearly 57% through the Origin Shield.

Growing demand for cloud security to spur the consumption of content delivery network

With increased online content, the chances of malicious activities like bad bots and denial of services also increase, which calls for efficient content protection. Cloud security provides necessary protection to CDN servers and avoid them from getting hacked or the exploitation of cached information. This has increased the number of deployments of these systems. Driven by such factors the cloud security segment is anticipated to register a growth rate of over 13% during the projected timeframe.

Broadcasters use API management tools to upscale their APIs with security and reliability. They achieve this whilst curbing down the website latency. For example, as per Akamai data, over 53% of customers abandon using a mobile website if its load time is over three seconds while over 49% of users expect a mobile website to be loaded within two seconds.

Rise in the number of live streamed events to boost the market growth

There has been a significant rise in the number of live-streamed events across the world, especially in 2020. Growing demand for online content like multiplayer online gaming competitions, video blogging and other similar dynamic and real-time content has encouraged the implementation of CDN solutions. Also, customers are demanding unified TV services through a single provider and operators have responded with delivery and network optimization methods using dynamic CDN. Owing to these factors, the content delivery network market will flourish over the stipulated timeframe.
