[Infonetics]: Huawei and Sandvine Led the DPI Market in 2011

Shira Levine, directing analyst for next gen OSS and policy, Infonetics Research updated its Service Provider Deep Packet Inspection Products report, stating that "product revenue grew 29% to over $470 million worldwide in 2011" and forecasting that " the service provider DPI market to grow to $2.0 billion in 2016, with the bulk of the growth coming from the mobile space".

Infonetics previous report forecasted a market size of $1.6B for 2015 (here). A year ago, the forecast was $2.1B for 2015 (here).

Note that the revenues of the 3 public DPI vendors (Sandvine, Allot and Procera - see market share chart below) grew by 27% during 2011 (here).

My DPI Market size table (here) is updated accordingly.
In addition the report finds that "Huawei narrowly pulled ahead of Sandvine to take the lead in global service provider DPI revenue share in 2011".
Infonetics sees risks for the standalone DPI products market - "DPI is increasingly being incorporated into larger solutions, such as video optimization and mobile offload, creating opportunities for suppliers that offer DPI technology on an OEM basis" and points to the changes in the way DPI is used: "Operators are evaluating alternatives to throttling or blocking high-bandwidth video content, including using DPI for media caching, to prioritize select video content to support guaranteed QoS and as part of a content delivery network strategy".
"Though fixed-line operators continue to invest in deep packet inspection solutions for traffic management and to manage the impact of over-the-top (OTT) content on their networks, wireless operators are looking to DPI for more granular traffic management, including prioritization and strategic offload, and are starting to deploy DPI hand-in-hand with their LTE network upgrades"
