Sales of Data Center Switches Down 3 Percent in 2020, According to Dell’Oro Group


“Since the onset of the pandemic, and based on our research as well as our end-user interviews, we have been predicting the data center switch market to be somewhat resilient to the pandemic and to decline only mid-to-low single-digit in 2020,” said Sameh Boujelbene, Senior Research Director at Dell’Oro Group.

Government Spending Drives Wireless LAN Market to Double-Digit Y/Y Growth in 4Q 2020, Outlook Strengthens, According to Dell’Oro Group


“While government spending is flowing into all vertical industries, it is most notable in K-12 Education and Government,” said Matthias Machowinski, Senior Research Director at Dell’Oro Group. “We estimate those two verticals alone contributed an additional 15 percent to overall market spend during 4Q 2020, as sales to K-12 increased 90 percent and Government increased almost 40 percent—extraordinary rates. Clearly, government spending is lifting overall market sales and by our judgment, is likely to continue through 2021 and beyond,” added Machowinski.
