Software-Defined Infrastructure Market Overview


The CAGR for the global software-defined infrastructure market is projected to be 22% for the time period that this report covers. It’s expected to be worth USD 95 billion in 2023. The market is currently worth USD 6.5 billion.


The software-defined infrastructure uses software to manage IT infrastructure. It consists of many components. These include networking, storage, and computing. Hardware and software each have different versions of these components.


Many organizations are already using software-defined infrastructure (SDI) and many more are following. There’s a reason for this. The organizations that use SDI find that they save lots of money because they don’t have to employ as many people. These companies find that their productivity increases dramatically because they can automate routine functions which humans may find tedious and hence sometimes perform incorrectly. Doing so does more than help these organizations save money. It also increases their productivity. The forecast predicts that the market will see a huge growth in the time period 2017-2023.


COVID-19 analysis

The effects on most businesses were far from temporary though. Most businesses in most industries around the world found that they had to either temporarily halt production or dramatically scale it back. Some businesses were forced to shut their doors permanently because of this.


The companies in the SDI market were no exception. There was far less demand for software-defined infrastructure mainly because people were working from home much more often. Thus, manufacturers in the software-defined infrastructure (SDI) market were forced to resort to innovative and creative strategies to continue to remain in business.


Software-Defined Infrastructure Market Dynamics
