    Question IPv4 rent or buy?

    Hi!

    Everybody knows that there is scarcity issue with IPv4 blocks, you can't get as much IPs as you need from RIRs anymore.
    If you haven't acquired IPs for cheap 3-6 years, now it's very expensive. Currently, you have to pay around 12k$ for /24 (256 IPs).

    There is a couple of rent providers - old, manually managed platforms and new ones - such as IPXO and InterLIR

    Where do you get IPv4 networks for your servers? Do you prefer rent or buy?

    Best regards,

    My team has made a research regarding current market state. Although, it's hard to predict a market price for such type of assets (or any, these turbulent times), you can expect, given market dynamics and usefulness of IPv4, that IPv4 prices will increase.

    Our key findings are :
    The main share in the total volume of world transfers of IP addresses is occupied by the RIPE region.
    RIPE accounts for 63.81% of the total IP address market.
    The share of RIPE in the total volume of the structure has grown by 22.75% since 2017 year.
    The share of Lacnic in the overall structure also increased (+1.14% in 2022 compared to 2017).
    APNIC and ARIN reduced by 9.8% and 12.9%, respectively, their share in the total IP address market compared to 2017.
    The main share in the structure of IP allocated addresses RIPE falls on the /22 network.
    In APNIC, the situation is similar to RIPE in terms of the allocated IP addresses market structure.
    The bulk of allocated IP addresses falls on /22.
    The situation in Afrinic is different in terms of market structure from RIPE and APNIC this region is dominated by transfers of the cheapest networks - /24
    In the /20, /21, /22 price segments, there is a downward trend in the average price for the sale of IP addresses.
    In the RIPE region, the average price for /22 dropped from 48.60 to 48.19 per IP address. Also in this region, prices for /21 decreased from 48.58 euros to 47.30 euros, /20, in turn, fell in price from 44.59 euros in March to 42.96 euros in June.
