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,
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,
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 weve returned to more
traditional investment expectations, people are looking at more complex
developments with ultimately much higher return."
