The worldwide enterprise router and switch markets are showing steady growth this year.

Analyst Infonetics Research says both markets saw 2% growth in the second quarter when compared to the first quarter of this year.

The enterprise router market was worth $1.07bn (£594m) in the second quarter, while the worldwide Ethernet switch market was worth $3.7bn.

Matthias Machowinski, an analyst at Infonetics Research, said, “This year is shaping up to be another successful year, with many segments growing in the double-digits.”

Infonetics said Cisco continued to lead the total enterprise router market with nearly 75% of worldwide revenue. Huawei was second, with Juniper in third place.

About 40% of enterprise router sales were in North America, 35% in the EMEA (Europe, Middle East and Africa) region, and 19% came from the Asia Pacific region.
