A new report by Asad Khan, Lead Analyst and Matt Lewis, Research Director, ARCchart, forecasts a very growth to the DPI market, higher than any other research I've seen so far (here).
According to the report "Despite opposition from privacy advocates and ongoing the net neutrality debate, service providers have already begun significant investments in DPI products, with spending expected to reach $1 billion by the end of 2013. ARCchart expects the global carrier networks DPI market to grow at a CAGR of nearly 40% between 2013 and 2018, eventually accounting for $5 billion in revenues by the end of 2018".
"Not only does DPI empower service providers to optimise their network capacity and performance, but it also open avenues for new opportunities such as targeted advertising, WiFi/small cell offload management, M2M connection management and value added services such as content filtering and policy enforcement"
