Europe Edge Computing Market size and growth rate, 2024 - 2030

In 2023, Europe accounted for over 20% of the edge computing market. Edge computing improves the efficiency of organizations by providing data processing near to the device itself. It expedites data gathering and sharing process, thereby driving the efficiency of enterprises. The growing adoption of IoT and big data across various sectors, including education, healthcare, and manufacturing, is generating large volumes of data. With the increasing volumes of data, computing is also getting more and more complex. The increasing penetration of cloud services and IoT is expected to impact the industry’s growth positively.

Edge computing envisages leveraging local computing power using devices such as routers, smartphones, and PCs. It offers several benefits and helps in processing the data at faster rates with reduced latency, thereby optimizing costs and providing real-time information. Edge computing technology is scalable as it can potentially utilize computing capabilities to meet contextual computing requirements.

This capability has thus provided an impetus to the adoption of edge computing solutions among enterprises. Low latency of current IoT infrastructure, the need to perform analytics at the edge of the network, and a higher awareness regarding data security amongst businesses are some of the important factors driving the sector.

End-users comprise various industries and sectors adopting edge computing solutions, such as manufacturing, energy & utilities, IT & telecom, consumer appliances, healthcare & life sciences, and transportation & logistics.

Application Insights

The IIoT segment dominated the market with the largest revenue share in 2023. Edge computing is playing a key role in helping organizations in the digitization of their facilities. The demand for edge infrastructure is projected to increase as service intricacy rises and the infrastructure edge becomes more accessible. Edge computing helps manufacturers to reach the goal of digitization of their facilities. The demand for edge infrastructure is projected to increase as service intricacy rises and edge infrastructure becomes more accessible.

Europe Edge Computing Market share and size, 2023

The AR/VR segment is expected to grow with the highest CAGR over the forecast period due to the ultra-low latency and high data bandwidth edge computing offers for resource heavy AR/VR applications. Edge computing significantly impacts AR/VR and makes it more accessible, cost-effective, and secure. With edge computing, the processing required for AR applications can run on devices such as smartphones and tablets, rather than relying on cloud computing and remote servers. This significantly reduces cloud-based AR systems’ latency and data transmission costs.

Component Insights

The hardware segment accounted for the largest revenue share of over 42.0% in 2023. This can be credited to the increasing popularity of hardware in the managed services industry. With the growing application of IoT and IIoT devices, the volume of data created by these devices is also increasing. As a result, enterprises are increasingly adopting hardware components, such as edge computing gear to minimize the load on cloud and data centers.

The growth of the software segment can be attributed to the growing investment in cloud services and the surge in the adoption of artificial intelligence across industries. Key companies are emphasized on completing various business strategies to enhance their cloud services and broaden their business globally. For instance, in May 2022, IBM Corporation partnered with AWS to provide an IBM software catalog as software-as-a-service on AWS.

Industry Vertical Insights

The datacenters segment is expected to grow with the highest CAGR over the forecast period. This is due to the fact that edge computers enable data centers to have access to local data efficiently and at low latencies and analyze it rapidly. Western Europe in particular is expected to increase its expenditure on machine learning and AI technologies to fulfill the growing IT-skill shortage in the region. This, in turn, offers significant growth opportunities for edge computing technologies, especially across smart applications.

The industrial segment also witnessed a significant market share in 2023. The real-time monitoring function increases the operational efficiency and productivity of the manufacturing companies. Edge computing is the best solution for remote sites where cloud connectivity is not stable. Thus, the remote oil fields are widely adopting edge computing technology.

Country Insights

Europe has introduced the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) for online privacy and data protection. The GDPR compliance is focused on providing standard data protection laws for all member countries and helps EU citizens understand how their data is used and stored. Administrations in European countries are also adding favorable legislation for edge computing segments.

UK Edge Computing Market Trends

The UK accounted for the highest market share in 2023. European countries follow a wide-scale application of health-specific personal wellness, including wearable blood pressure, glucose level monitors, telehealth systems, and heart rate monitors, which exchange medical information between patients, medical professionals, and sites. The rise in the adoption of IIoT in other sectors, such as government and retail, is expected to act as a major contributor to regional growth.
