However, the global market for mobile edge computing is primarily driven by the rising demand for low latency computing, as latency is the fundamental measure of network performance. Low latency computing demand is rising with the rise in emerging services such as cloud computing, 5G technology, virtual reality headsets, fitness trackers and interactive gaming industries. Mobile edge computing offers ultra-low latency and thus is being recognized as a key technology. It also represents architectural concept to enable the evolution of 5G eras and enables seamless video streaming.

In 2017, the 4G technology led the segment by technology of the MEC market, by capturing the largest market share of approximately XX% and an estimated revenue of approximately $ XX million. The 4G technology market is primarily driven by high penetration or adoption of 4G services in countries such as the United States, China, India and others. For instance, according to 5G Americas, in the year 2015, ~XX% of the United States population had access to 4G/LTE services. Similarly, according to Indian brand equity foundation, by 2018, India would have a customer base of approximately xx million 4G subscribers. Such huge customer base would lead to data congestion and hence would call for the deployment of mobile edge computing solution to offer better services to customers. 5G Technology segment is expected to be the fastest growing technology segment. Increasing penetration of Internet of Things also contributes to the growth of the global 5G market. According to the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), in 2016, XX billion devices were connected through the Internet of Things, and it is estimated that by the end of 2020, XX billion devices will use the Internet of Things. The other factor which contributes to the growth of the 5G market is the government investments for the adoption of 5G services across the world. According to Forbes, the government of China is supporting research and development activities for 5G technologies across the country. Also, in 2016, the government of United States announced the launch of an $XX million investment plan for 5G research.

With the increased adoption of Mobile Edge Computing, newer challenges have been introduced into the market. There has been a huge concern for privacy and data protection for mobile and cloud computing. Increasing number of virus attacks, ransomware and malware attacks and other data breaches have hindered the users from using mobile-based cloud computing and IT services. Therefore, mobile computing security has become very crucial in mobile edge computing. Furthermore, rapid changes in regulations, complexities in data authenticity verification & need for high bandwidth frequency are some of the major issues that are profoundly pulling back the Global MEC market.
