Based on solutions, the web performance optimization segment to grow at a higher CAGR during the forecast period

Web performance optimization is used to speed up the delivery of the web pages or website content for any organization on various end-user devices. This reduces the latency of the pages by an intelligent routing method. Web performance optimization caters to the end-users by delivering a replica or copy of the web page or website, if available on the CDN server that is near to the location of the user. If the requested content is not available on the closest server, then this solution routes the user request to the next-closest CDN or the third-party server that contains the page. Therefore, this solution helps in reducing the latency while offering smooth storage provisioning as well as orchestration of the entire workflow. This, in turn, facilitates the delivery of better Qaulity of Experience (QoE) and Quality of Service (QoS) to the end-user.
