U.S. Edge Computing Market Size & Trends

The U.S. edge computing market size was valued at USD 6.08 billion in 2023 and is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 31.2% from 2024 to 2030. The growth can be attributed to the rising demand for edge computing for collecting, processing, and analyzing vast data to make informed decisions. Edge computing provides data processing near to the device itself, improving the efficiency of the organization. Edge computing expedites data gathering and sharing process, thereby driving the efficiency of enterprises.

U.S. Edge Computing Market size, by type, 2024 - 2030 (USD Million)

The rising adoption of the latest technologies such as IoT and big data across various sectors, including education, healthcare, and manufacturing is generating large volumes of data. As the volumes of data are increasing, computing is getting more complex. The increasing penetration of cloud services and IoT is expected to impact the industry’s growth positively.

Moreover, 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 have substantially contributed to the industry growth. Various players within the ecosystem, including cloud service providers, communication technology providers, platform providers, and system integrators are increasingly exploring opportunities created by the cross-sector application of edge computing technology, thereby generating contemporary revenue sources.

Edge computing has grown into a solution-specific technology, with special tools and architectures designed for specific use cases. Some use cases where the edge is expected to acquire a considerable share throughout the predicted time include next-generation CDNs, network function, 5G virtualization, and game streaming.

Market Concentration & Characteristics:

The market is characterized by a moderate to high level of innovation. This is due to the surge in the adoption of connected devices and 5G technology, and technological advancements in terms of AI. It increases the demand for processing and analyzing vast amount of data across various industries.

U.S. Edge Computing Market Concentration & Characteristics

The market is also characterized by a significant level of mergers and acquisitions among the leading players. For instance, in June 2023, HPE acquired Athonet, a leading private cellular networking specialist. This acquisition is expected to help HPE revolutionize the private networking market, in part through simplifying and accelerating the deployment of private 5G.

The market is also subject to increasing regulatory scrutiny due to concerns related to data privacy and security, and compliance standards. In order to ensure data integrity, edge computing solutions need to align with sector-specific regulations, security, and regulatory compliances. In addition to compliance benefits, edge computing can reduce latency in data processing and transmission, thus improving overall performance and user experience for employees and customers.

There are limited technological substitutes for the market. Cloud computing can be used as an alternative to edge computing; however, they typically deliver a different level of performance or result depending on the specific needs of the end-user or application.

End-user concentration is also a significant factor in the market, as there are a number of end-user industries that are creating demand for edge computing solutions. Rising demand for edge computing technology across various industries is creating opportunities for industry players.

Component Insights

Based on components, the hardware segment accounted for the largest market share of over 43.0% 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 hardware segment can be bifurcated into Edge Nodes/Gateways (Servers), Sensors/Routers, and others. The rising number of data centers boosts the demand for edge routers, linking local and wide-area networks. Edge data centers should be well-equipped with flexible and powerful edge routers capable of handling a large volume of incoming traffic while maintaining low latency. The demand for secure and efficient data processing at the edge of the network is likely to boost the growth of the hardware segment during the forecast period.

Industry Vertical Insights

Based on the industry vertical, the industrial segment captured 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.

Moreover, in the data-sensitive industry and regions where data compliances are very strict, edge computing acts as an effective solution for processing the data. As the convergence of IIoT with edge computing is favoring the adoption of connected factories among manufacturers in the U.S., several startups have evolved to deliver platforms for developing edge-enabled solutions that are anticipated to boost the regional industry's growth.

Application Insights

Based on application, the IIoT segment dominated the market 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.
