A healthy market, whether it’s a financial market, real estate market, or any other type of market, is characterized by certain signs and conditions that indicate stability, efficiency, and fairness.  The IPv4 market began in response to the exhaustion of a rare technology and a surge in client demand in 2015.

There are several contributing factors that have caused the prices to take a downward spiral over the last 18 months. While CG-NAT, IPv6 deployments and interest rate spikes played a role, the lack of demand is one of the most critical driving factors. With that said, where does the IPv4 demand stand today?

Even in uncertain times, the IPv4 address market continues on a steady path of recovery. After approximately 18 months of demand decreasing and significant price drops, there is now a glimmer of hope on the horizon. Perhaps, sentiment regarding inflation and heightened interest rates are affecting the market as we near the new year; with anticipation of positive news and more stability.
