Worldwide enterprise router units shipments increased 10 percent and revenue totaled $918 million in 3Q04, down a percent from 2Q04, according to Infonetics Research's Enterprise Routers quarterly worldwide market share and forecast report. Revenue is projected to dip 4 percent to $3.8 billion between 2003 and 2004, and return to the 2003 level of $3.9 billion in 2007, with a 5-year CAGR of -1 percent.
"Cisco continues to dominate the router world quarter over quarter," said Infonetics Research's Matthias Machowinski, directing analyst for enterprise voice and data. "The competition is introducing products up and down the enterprise router categories, offering end-users more choices and features at aggressive prices. Cisco faces the most competition in the low-end/SOHO categories, pressured by the commoditization of low-end routing and more sales channels."
Infonetics projects secure router categories to have slightly higher growth rates than standard router categories through 2007, increasing revenue from a 12 percent portion of the total router market in 2003 to 14 percent in 2007. Over time, more router vendors are likely to add security features into routers as a default offering, at no extra charge, causing the standard enterprise router category to disappear.
Enterprise Routers tracks wired broadband gateways and standard and secure high-end, mid-range, and low-end/SOHO routers. Forecasts and market share are updated quarterly and cover all regions (worldwide, North America, EMEA, Asia Pacific and CALA).
