SELBYVILLE, Del., March 7, 2018 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Fog Computing Industry Background

Fog computing is a distinctively niche technology and an extension to cloud computing. It is defined as a decentralized computing platform that extends the service offered by the cloud computing resources to the edge of devices. It provides storage, computing, and networking service between cloud platforms and end devices. These model offers several benefits such as scalability, low latency requirement, optimizing network traffic, which makes it an ideal solution for managing IoT tasks and queries. As the adoption of IoT devices increases, the requirement to optimize network traffic and reduced time for transmitting data between edge devices and cloud computing platform also arises, which is also estimated to drive the growth of the market.

Fog Computing Industry Overview

Fog Computing Market is predicted to be valued USD 700 million by 2024; according to a new research report by Global Market Insights, Inc. Increasing penetration of cloud computing platforms is fostering the global fog computing industry growth. Over the past decade, cloud computing has emerged as a driving force in the IT ecosystem. It is estimated that approximately 80% of the enterprises are utilizing the capabilities of the cloud computing platform in their business and the number is further anticipated to increase in the future.

Fog computing solutions offer several benefits to the business, as they extend the cloud near the edge devices that generate and act on data. The model increases the business agility as it offers rapid innovation and affordable scaling options. It is cost effective and comparatively faster than cloud computing platforms. Furthermore, it provides better security, deeper insights, and privacy control. It also reduces the operating expenses by conserving the network bandwidth and locally processing the data rather than forwarding to the cloud platform.

Fog Computing Market By Application

As cloud computing platforms offers computing, storage, and networking services across all the business sectors, it frees the customer and enterprises from the specifications of various details, which may result issues in latency sensitive applications in sector such as healthcare, energy & utility. These inherent challenges of cloud computing are forecast to positively impact the market adoption.

The manufacturing sector is also one of the major end-users of the fog computing market solutions and holds huge potential for the industry revenue. The growth can be credited to the increasing demand for process automation in the manufacturing sector to gain an edge over competitors. Furthermore, fog computing solutions enhance the operational efficiency by providing actionable insights and real-time monitoring of the operations, which is estimated to increase the adoption among manufacturing plants.

The growth of the fog computing market is attributed to the paradigm shift in the U.S. healthcare reimbursement systems from fee-for-service model to the outcome-based reimbursement model. This will encourage healthcare organizations to adopt IoT devices to reduce power consumption, improve operational efficiency, reduce cost, and enhance overall performance of business. Furthermore, healthcare applications are latency sensitive and requires real-time analysis, any delay in transmitting data leads to serious consequences. Since fog computing enables the analysis of data at the edge of devices, its adoption among healthcare organization is further estimated to increase.
