Media delivery includes rich media files, such as audio streaming, live videos, video streaming, and other such content. It requires high bandwidth allocation and needs to maintain the quality of user experience, which may get disrupted due to network congestion or high traffic rates. The media delivery solution focuses on delivering media content to the end-user at a much faster pace, thus reducing the latency time. The trend of online media streaming is growing along with the rising number of online media viewers; where the viewers expect a flawless viewing experience and instant access to High Definition (HD) content on any device. The media delivery solution enables viewers to start watching the video right from the first click.

Traditional CDN providers include pure players in the CDN market. These players provide various CDN solutions, such as network optimization, content acceleration, and media delivery, for the delivery of static and dynamic content over the internet. Traditional CDN providers involve a large set of servers that are strategically deployed across the globe and balance the load on the existing networks. This distributed network infrastructure pushes the requested content to the closest server for delivering the content to the user with the lowest latency.

The media and entertainment segment is utilizing the full capabilities of CDN solutions to offer a fast, secure, and uninterrupted viewing experience to its users. The growth of this segment is characterized by increasing demand for online video streaming. Online customers expect high-quality visual content on any device with better visibility and no interruption. CDN solutions help in lowering the delay and optimize the overall content delivery process. Hence, viewers get a high-quality viewing experience, and this, in turn, increases the revenue for the media and entertainment enterprises. These enterprises are transforming their business models to accommodate their global viewers.
APAC is expected to grow at a higher CAGR during the forecast period.
The fastest growth rate of the APAC CDN market can be attributed to the ever-increasing consumption of content in these emerging countries. Moreover, the market is experiencing disruptive growth due to its growing number of internet subscribers and increasing consumption of the internet through smartphones and other portable devices. The eCommerce industry's massive growth and adoption of internet TV in countries such as India, China, Korea, and Singapore have fueled the CDN market growth, making APAC one of the fastest-growing regions in the CDN market.
