Infonetics: Enterprise Router Market Off to a Rough Start, Plunges 14% Sequentially

BOSTON --(Business Wire)--

Market research firm Infonetics Research released excerpts from its 1st quarter 2014 (1Q14) Enterprise Routers market share and forecasts report, which tracks high-end, mid-range, branch office, and low-end/SOHO router revenue and ports.

ANALYST NOTE

"2013 was a good year for enterprise routers, but 2014 is off to a bad start. Among the key factors affecting revenue growth in the first quarter are a mix shift toward lower-end equipment, increasing discount pressure, weakness in North America, and preferences in China shifting to local vendors," notes Matthias Machowinski, directing analyst for enterprise networks and video at Infonetics Research.

ENTERPRISE ROUTER MARKET HIGHLIGHTS

  • Global enterprise router revenue plunged 14% in 1Q14 from 4Q13, to $859 million
  • 1Q14 saw a revival in low-end routing, but Infonetics (News - Alert) expects this to be short-lived
  • Sales of enterprise routers in North America stumbled in 1Q14, down 4% year-over-year, but Infonetics believes the decline is temporary and growth will resume in the coming quarters
  • Vendor performance was a mixed bag in 1Q14: Adtran, Cisco, Juniper, and Yamaha declined year-over-year, while OneAccess, Huawei (News - Alert), and ZTE posted strong year-over-year gains
