Edge Market Sizing Dashboard

STL Partners’ edge computing market sizing forecast

This dashboard presents the key findings of STL Partners’ demand forecast model for edge computing services. Its purpose is to:

  • Assess the demand from 20 use cases which currently rely on edge or will require edge to fully develop;
  • Identify the total revenue across the value chain: hardware, connectivity, application, edge platform, edge infrastructure (on-premise, network and regional), and integration and services;
  • Output a full set of results for over 97 countries over the 2020–2030 period per use case and per vertical.

The dashboard presents a summary of our model output and the associated graphics for the world’s regions and for 20 major markets. The dashboard also presents the full revenue output for the 97 countries

Edge computing addressable revenue will reach US$462 billion by 2030

High-level findings from the model indicate that:

  • The total edge computing addressable market will grow from US$9 billion in 2020 to US$462 billion in 2030 at a CAGR of 49% over the 10-year period.
  • The growth in the number of connected devices, as well as the need for higher levels of automation, operational efficiency and cost reduction, will drive the adoption of edge computing across many use cases and verticals over the next 10 years. This will result in increased spend across the value chain.
