Proxy Market Research 2021

Proxy IP networks are used everywhere, from e-commerce to SEO and even sneaker shopping. Yet, very few resources exist about them. Companies looking for a residential proxy server need to rely on marketing materials, sketchy affiliate websites, or conduct costly and time-consuming tests in-house.

For the third year in a row, we are releasing Proxyway Market Research – the only comprehensive evaluation of the leading residential proxy providers. Based on 3 months of testing and over 2 million requests to each proxy network, it uncovers the market trends, gives a detailed technical comparison of eight major residential IP providers, and applies the findings to six major verticals. We aim both to educate and provide a reliable resource for selecting a proxy service.

For a shorter version, you can read the key findings here.
