Global Market Size, Forecast, and Trend Highlights Over 2023 - 2035

Power over Ethernet Solutions Market size is set to reach USD 5 Billion by the end of 2035, observing nearly 10% CAGR during the forecast period i.e., 2023 and 2035. In the year 2022, the industry of power over ethernet solutions was over USD 2 Billion. The major factor to boost the growth of this market is the rise in the adoption of VoIP services. Globally, the number of people using VoIP services is 2 million. Hence, with this, the adoption of PoE solutions is also growing. A router or other similar equipment injects a very small electrical current into an Ethernet cable to enable PoE to function. A VoIP phone is turned on when these cables are connected to an Ethernet port that supports PoE.

Additionally, the use of PoE is also growing in the smart grid to deliver data and power over a single line to field devices that support the effective utilization of physical space and data communication technologies. Smart grids require a systematic upgrading of the network infrastructure to enable advanced technologies and services. Hence, the demand for PoE solutions is growing. Furthermore, many countries are investing in smart grid projects which are further poised to fuel the market expansion. Additionally, data and power delivery over a single Cat5 or Cat6 Ethernet cable is the main benefit of power over ethernet. Building owners may save significant amounts of time and money with remote installation since it is typically less expensive than optical fiber and doesn't need a licensed electrician.

Power over Ethernet (PoE) Solutions Sector: Growth Drivers and Challenges

Growth Drivers

  • Growing Demand for LED Lights

The penetration of LED lighting is expected to have a boost in 2025 by about 75% globally. Hence, the demand for power over ethernet (PoE) is also set to have a dominating growth. When LED lights are used on a PoE network, wasteful power-conversion steps for LED lights used in a retrofitted, legacy AC-powered socket are reduced. Hence, this results in excellent energy efficiency.

  • Rise in Security Breaches

Owing to the rise in security breaches various companies have started deploying IP cameras in their organization to keep track of the number of people coming in and out daily. Further, since organizations deploy multiple security cameras, the PoE solution is the best choice for them, since they operate in just one cable providing both network connection and power.

  • Surge in the Use of PoE Solutions by Data Centers

Data centers are in constant need of power solution which is efficient and cost-effective. Hence, the PoE solution is estimated to satisfy that need.


  • High Initial Cost of Installation - Insertion of power over Ethernet (POE) networks demands a significant initial financial outlay. This is owing to the high expense of Ethernet switches which necessities power source equipment (PSE) against the traditional analog, along with the PSE's maintenance costs. In addition, switches, ethernet cables, injectors, splitters, and PoE connections are used. The fact that the cost of procuring these components is included in overall start-up costs is a key impediment to the market's potential to grow in terms of revenue.
  • Have Limited Capacity to Deliver Power
  • Lack of Awareness Among People
