The Intent-based Networking Market is expected to reach USD 8.8 billion by 2030, at a CAGR of 23.9% during the forecast period (2023–2030). The growth of the intent-based networking market is driven by increasing network complexity, the growing demand for network agility and efficiency, and the rising need for Zero-touch Provisioning (ZTP) and unified network visibility. However, the lack of standardization restrains the growth of this market. The integration of networking with Artificial Intelligence (AI) & Machine Learning (ML) technologies and the increasing adoption of cloud-based networking are expected to generate growth opportunities for the players operating in this market. However, complexities in the deployment & integration of intent-based networking solutions are a major challenge for market growth.
