Global network automation market witnessed a market value of USD 4.1 billion in 2023 and is estimated to reach USD 29.5 billion in 2033, registering a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 21.8% between 2023 and 2033. Network automation refers to the use of software and technology to automate the configuration, management, and monitoring of computer networks. This technology involves the use of machine learning, artificial intelligence, and other advanced technologies to streamline network management, improve efficiency, and reduce costs.

The network automation market refers to the industry involved in the development, production, and distribution of network automation technology and related services. This market includes a variety of software, hardware, and services, including network automation platforms, network orchestration tools, network management software, and other related solutions.

The network automation market is driven by the growing complexity of modern networks, the need for greater efficiency and cost savings, and the increasing demand for digital transformation. As businesses and organizations rely more heavily on digital infrastructure and technology, the network automation market is expected to continue to grow and evolve, with new technologies and solutions emerging to meet the changing needs of the market.

Used in conjunction with network virtualization, network automation is the process of automating the configuration, management, and operations of a computer network in order to continuously maximize network efficiency and functionality. With major applications relying on data centers, supporting them through increased virtualization, standardization, and automation have become essentially necessary for better performance. By integrating computer hardware and software-based solutions which can help in managing and executing network processes, large enterprises, service provider, and organizations can implement electronic network automation to manage repetitive processes.

Network Automation helps in improving the efficiency of networks, solving network issues (at times, even before they occur), lowering operational expenses, reducing the possibility of errors, and improving business continuity & agility and is an essential step for enterprises to implement a networking solution that grows smarter, responsive, and constantly adopts and protects the network.

The global network automation market is anticipated to grow at a thriving CAGR in the next few years.

Network Automation Market Drivers

The growth of this market is attributed towards major pertaining factors including; the advancement in recent technologies of machine learning, artificial intelligence, and internet of things which enable enterprises to enhance troubleshooting of the network issues through real-time data monitoring, the increasing need for faster network for better connectivity, the increasing network traffic and cloud infrastructure leading to a significant transition in data centers, the rising industry competition and surge in investment by service providers, rise in demand for data centre network, the increasing trend of connected devices such as mobile, smartphones, iPod, laptop, and tablets, the increasing demand for advanced networking solutions by major organizations and huge investments in R&D of network automation etc.

Moreover, the increase in the adoption of virtual and software-defined wide area network (WAN) infrastructure across enterprises and an increase in demand for bandwidth management and network visibility across SME aid in propelling the growth of this market.

Furthermore, increase in the number of new businesses offering solutions for network automation and network downtime caused due to human errors, increasing focus of vendors on providing robust Service Level Agreements (SLAs) to increase their profit margins and gain market share, several government initiatives for the commercialization of 5G technologies and upsurge in the demand for NFV and SDN technologies are further expected to bolster the growth of the network automation market globally.

However, lack of skilled professionals in various industries, the availability of open source automation tools and rising security threats are among the few factors that impede the growth of this market.

Nonetheless, the COVID-19 outbreak has gained traction in the network automation market owing to the substantial rise in Internet traffic witnessed as a result of the increasing WFH trend after the imposing of lockdowns. At this time, IoT products have proven to play a vital role in limiting the spread of the virus and assisting in the treatment of infected individuals and to manage networks and data traffic. And this has at large, scaled up the overall network automation market tremendously on the global scale.
