Dublin, May 03, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Virtual Router Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2022-2027" report has been added to's offering.

The global virtual router market reached a value of US$ 176.6 million in 2021. Looking forward, the market is projected to reach a value of US$ 614.6 million by 2027, exhibiting a CAGR of 22.30% during 2022-2027. Keeping in mind the uncertainties of COVID-19, the analyst is continuously tracking and evaluating the direct as well as the indirect influence of the pandemic. These insights are included in the report as a major market contributor.

A virtual router is a scalable and flexible software-based routing framework that enables the host machine to operate as a conventional hardware router over a local area network. It is identified with a unique virtual router identifier (VRID) that is present at the last byte of the address. As it can lower hardware costs and help develop new applications rapidly and process packets in real-time, a virtual router finds extensive applications in the telecommunications industry across the globe.

Virtual Router Market Trends

At present, there is a considerable increase in the adoption of virtual routers by communication service providers (CSPs). This, in confluence with the rising popularity of software-defined networking (SDN) and network functions virtualization (NFV), represents one of the key factors bolstering the market growth. Moreover, virtual routers assist in developing, prototyping, and testing new communication subsystems. These routers can also aid in distance learning and are consequently utilized as tools that enable students to perform virtual experiments. This, coupled with the rapid expansion of data centers, is catalyzing the demand for virtual routers around the world.

Apart from this, these routers provide increased network speed, faster acquisition of data, and safer storage networks. In addition, they help reduce the total cost of ownership (TCO) by lowering capital expenditures (CAPEX) and operating expenses (OPEX) of businesses from different industry verticals. These product benefits, along with technological advancements, including the implementation of virtual router redundancy protocol (VRRP) to separate traffic and improve network security, are strengthening the market growth. Other factors, such as improving 5G infrastructure and the increasing requirement for cloud-based services worldwide, are creating a positive outlook for the market.
