Market Poised to Exceed $50 B in 2027; Data Center Switching Records from Cloud and Hyperscalers AI Build outs; Campus Switching Achieves Record Quarter as Supply Chain Problems Ease

Incline Village, Nevada – March 8, 2023 – A newly released report by 650 Group, a leading Market Intelligence Research firm for communications, data center, and cloud markets, indicates that the Ethernet Switch Market grew nearly 20% Y/Y in 4Q22 to over $11 B. The report also revealed significant regional differences in vendor performance with many records set.

Highlights for the quarter include:

  • Enterprise / Campus switching achieved a record quarter in revenue and shipments as vendors worked through the backlog
  • The breadth of vendor growth continues to shrink as some vendors return to normal seasonality
  • The Chinese market declined Y/Y as customers absorbed previous campus and data center shipments over the past two years
  • AI/ML attached switching in the data center is becoming a meaningful part of the market (650 Group publishes a report dedicated to AI/ML networking technologies including Ethernet and Infiniband)
  • Over 100 Ethernet Switch ports shipped every minute in 4Q’22

“The Ethernet Switch market hit record levels in 4Q’22 in the enterprise segment and realized expanded data center demand,” said Alan Weckel, Founder and Technology Analyst at 650 Group. “We expect that 2023 results will depend on the ability of the supply chain to continue to heal as the campus switch vendors work through the backlog and Hyperscalers ramp their AI/ML networks based on 800 Gbps and new 112 Gbps SERDES technology. As a result, we expect the first half of 2023 to have very different results than the second half of 2023 as the market normalizes.”

The Quarterly Ethernet Switch report indicates that the top five campus switch vendors after Cisco in North America were HPE Aruba, Juniper, Ubiquiti, Fortinet, and Extreme Networks. The top three branded data center switch vendors after Cisco in North America were Arista, Juniper, and Dell. In addition, the Cloud version of the data center switching report highlights Arista as the largest branded vendor.
