The analysts forecast Global Network Interface Cards Market to decline at a CAGR of (2.44) % during the period 2017-2021. The latest trend gaining momentum in the market is Emergence of PoE and PLC. Installing a cable, which is costly and not always possible, is one of the major disadvantages of wired communication. Power line communication (PLC) and power over Ethernet (PoE) provide a better option to wired networks. PLC does not require any wiring, and a power source is always present, which can be accessed remotely. Even though wireless networks can provide the same attributes, they are less secure, and the wireless signal quality gets hampered because of obstacles such as concrete floors and walls.”
About Network Interface Cards
Network interface card is a computer device that acts as a connection medium between the computer and the computer network. Network cards implement electronic circuitry, which is necessary to communicate, using data link layer standards such as Wi-Fi, fiber channel, or Ethernet. The report considers PCs, portable PCs, switches, and modems where network interface cards are used. Cards that are used as replacements are not included in the report.
According to the report, one of the major drivers for this market is Growing demand for data centers. The development of advanced technologies such as cloud-based services and big data analytics has increased the demand for data centers worldwide. Currently, developed countries, such as the US, are the largest markets for data center operations. However, the number of data centers in developing countries, such as China, India, and Brazil, has increased considerably, which is fueling the adoption of network switch and router products in these countries. Network equipment such as Ethernet switches and routers play a vital role in the operations of data centers regarding the availability of resources to the end-users without latency. Therefore, data center operators are expected to adopt 10GbE and 40GbE to cope with the increasing business demands. With the large-scale adoption of switches and routers, there has been an increasing demand for network interface cards from switches and modems vendors.
