Network Function Virtualization (NFV) refers to the process of designing, deploying, and managing network services. NFV performs various networking functions, operates them from a hardware base, and allows the user to run the software in virtual machines. Compared to traditional firewall devices and routers, modern NVF solutions can be deployed across multiple hardware. It is often used with various other services, such as Domain Name Service (DNS), Network Address Translation (NAT), firewalls, and caching. The NFV architecture consists of an element manager, a virtualized infrastructure manager, an orchestrator and an operating support system.

Significant growth in the banking, financial services and insurance (BFSI), healthcare, retail, manufacturing and information technology (IT) sectors is one of the factors keys to creating a positive outlook for the market. This has increased the need for advanced networking and NFV systems to handle growing network traffic and data complexity. In addition, the widespread adoption of virtual appliances is also driving the market. They are usually based on various networking operations, such as traffic forwarding, monitoring, security, caching, intrusion detection systems, and domain name service. NFV offers optimized network scalability and agility to manage the entire network and improve its overall performance, which acts as another growth driver. It can also be integrated with the Internet of Things (IoT) and private cloud computing services for increased flexibility. Other factors, including growing demand for data center consolidation and server virtualization, along with growing investments in 5G network technology, are expected to further drive the market.
