   Market for CDN Products and Services Will Continue to Grow Says Internet Research Group

Los Altos, Calif., April 30, 2002 – Over the next five years the market for CDN services will continue to grow and will pass $3B in 2006 according to a study released today by Internet Research Group (IRG) of Los Altos, California.

 

The study, titled The 2002 Content Distribution At The Edge Market Report, bases its growth forecast on executive interviews with leading CDN users, service providers and technology vendors. "While the drop off of dot-coms and the recession took its toll and caused a significant shakeout, overall CDN network usage grew and will continue to grow," says IRG principal and co-founder John Katsaros. "Here and going forward, usage goes just goes up."

 

CDN services and products to create CDN class networks have proven to be a cornerstone of Internet Acceleration strategies. "With the collapse of the .COM bubble this space has actually become a lot more interesting," noted Peter Christy, IRG principal and co-founder. "A couple of years ago, you had to do only easy things so you could do an IPO quickly. Now that we’ve returned to more traditional investment expectations, people are looking at more complex developments with ultimately much higher return."

 

The 300 page study—which includes an in-depth analysis of the primary vendors in the field—covers the market issues and opportunities surrounding Content Distribution. Included in the report is an in depth analysis of the market segmentation and business applications driving content delivery services.

 

Internet Research Group provides marketing and strategy research reports and consulting services, specializing in areas related to Internet infrastructure. Both Katsaros and Christy have authored multiple publications on the Internet. Information on the company, the principals and on The 2002 Content Distribution At The Edge Market Report is available by clicking here.
