Pricing Strategies for IPv4 Subnets in the Current Market

The average price of IPv4 addresses has witnessed a significant surge, climbing from around $6 to an astonishing $60 per IP in less than a decade. As of mid-2022, the average price hovered around $50 per IP, reflecting a robust growth in value. This trend is primarily driven by the global exhaustion of IPv4 addresses, coupled with soaring demand and limited supply.

Key Factors Influencing IPv4 Pricing

  1. Supply and Demand: The scarcity of IPv4 addresses, coupled with high demand, is the primary driver of price increases.
  2. Block Size: Larger IPv4 blocks often command higher prices per address. This trend is expected to continue, with large blocks maintaining a price premium.
  3. Market Trends and Variations: Fluctuations in market trends and the varying costs of different block sizes contribute to the complex pricing landscape.
  4. Inflation and Market Growth: Global IPv4 exhaustion and market dynamics have led to a significant increase in prices over the years.

Determining IPv4 Subnet Prices

Companies base their IPv4 pricing on several factors, including historical pricing data, block size, market demand, and regional variations. The market has experienced volatility, with prices fluctuating over time, influenced by the interplay of these factors.

Pricing Models for IPv4 Subnets

The IPv4 market has developed various pricing models, adapting to the changing landscape:

  1. Market-Based Pricing: Driven by supply and demand, historical data, and block size.
  2. Subscription-Based Pricing: Monthly fees per IP for additional IPv4 subscriptions, like Failover IPs.
  3. Lease-Based Pricing: Based on the lease cost per IPv4 address, calculated over the lease duration.
  4. Block Size-Based Pricing: Larger blocks are priced higher per address due to higher demand and scarcity.
