"Robust growth in NFV/SDN network control and orchestration software and services spending will continue (at a CAGR of 42% during 2018–2023), despite challenges for cross-domain network orchestration."

This report provides forecasts for communications service provider (CSP) spending on telecoms-specific network automation and orchestration (NAO) software systems and related services for 2019–2023.

Network automation and orchestration software and professional services spending will increase at a CAGR of nearly 18% between 2018 and 2023 to nearly USD20 billion. This growth will be due to the mixed effects of the large, though slow-growing, network management systems (NMS) market in combination with the smaller and higher-growth market for network orchestrators, WAN SDN solutions and virtual infrastructure managers (VIM). Software and services spend in these markets will collectively grow by 42% during the forecast period. This report analyses the drivers of, and impediments to, growth by market segment, geography, delivery type (such as products, services and SaaS) and service type.
