Intricately’s cloud data empowers go-to-market teams with a granular view into the various sectors of the cloud infrastructure market, including CDN.

Here are a few highlights of what we discovered:

  • The CDN market is growing rapidly. Our latest data can see over 2 million buyers with a $4 billion combined monthly spend. Enterprises make up a bulk of the revenue, but huge opportunity still exists lower in the market. Nearly half of the $500M spent by startups are companies spending less than $1K per month. 
  • Multi-CDN adoption will continue to accelerate, particularly in the SMB and mid-market tiers due to increased vendor competition and the growing number of specialized CDN offerings.
