Dell'Oro: Service Provider Router Market to Resume Strong Growth in 2011

The worldwide service provider router market will resume strong growth in 2011, as global economic conditions improve and new product and new infrastructure investment cycles begin to ramp, according to a new report from Dell'Oro Group. After a steep market decline this year, the router market is forecast to grow minimally in 2010, and then bounce back with double-digit growth rates from 2011 through 2013. Dell'Oro Group predicts that the service provider router market will surpass $10 billion by 2013.

"By 2011, we expect service providers that have weathered the economic downturn to resume spending on large network projects and invest in their router infrastructures," said Shin Umeda, Vice President of Routers research at Dell'Oro Group. "There will be a number of technological advancements in the areas of router capacity and service delivery capabilities that will be the basis for a new industry investment cycle that should last several years," added Umeda.
