The global application platform market was valued at USD 8.48 Billion in 2017 and is expected to reach USD 11.69 Billion by 2023, at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 5.4% during the forecast period. The base year considered for this study is 2017, and the forecast period is 2018–2023.

Objectives of the Study:

The key objective of the report is to define, describe, and forecast the application platform market size by component (software and services), deployment, organization size, and region. The report provides detailed information on the major factors (drivers, restraints, opportunities, and challenges) influencing the growth of the market. The report attempts to forecast the market size with respect to 5 major regions, namely, North America, Europe, Asia Pacific (APAC), Middle East and Africa (MEA), and Latin America. It strategically profiles the key market players and comprehensively analyzes their core competencies. The report also tracks and analyzes competitive developments, such as partnerships, agreements, and collaborations; mergers and acquisitions; and new product developments, in the market.

The research methodology used to estimate and forecast the application platform market size begins with the collection and analysis of the data on key vendor revenues through secondary sources, including annual reports and press releases; investor presentations of companies; conferences and associations (Mobile + Web Devcon 2018, App Promotion Summit London 2018, MobileTech Conference 2018, and Mobile World Congress [MWC] 2018); technology journals and certified publications; and articles from recognized authors, directories, and databases. The vendor offerings have also been taken into consideration to determine the market segmentations. The bottom-up procedure was employed to arrive at the overall market size of the market from the revenue of the key players and their market shares. The application platform market expenditures across all regions, along with the geographic split in various segments was considered to arrive at the overall market size. After arriving at the overall market size, the total market was split into several segments and subsegments, which were then verified through primary research by conducting extensive interviews with key people, such as Chief Executive Officers (CEOs), Vice Presidents (VPs), directors, and executives. The data triangulation and market breakdown procedures were employed to complete the overall market engineering process and arrive at the exact statistics for all segments and subsegments. The breakdown of profiles of primary participants is depicted in the below figure:

MarketsandMarkets forecasts the global application platform market size to grow from USD 8.99 Billion in 2018 to USD 11.69 Billion by 2023, at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 5.4% during the forecast period.

The application platform market is segmented on the basis of components (software and services), deployment, organization size, and regions. This market is expected to gain traction, as vendors and open-source communities offer user-friendly, reliable, innovative, and specialized platforms to support the modern and real-time application requirements. Application platforms are instrumental in simplifying the deployment of application codes, automating the application release processes, and proactively monitoring applications and associated infrastructure performances. In addition, these platforms empower the rapid development and deployment of application logic, enable faster application iteration, and provide an unified experience to developers. Vendors are offering paid, as well as free open-source software to their commercial customers in the market. Hence, both paid and open-source software play a significant role in the growth of the market. The software segment of the application platform market includes application platform software and transaction processing monitor software. Among these subsegments, the application platform software subsegment is expected to play a vital role in the growth of the market. This subsegment is estimated to account for the larger market share and projected to be a faster-growing subsegment as well. Services are evolving as an important aspect, as application platform vendors’ offer integrated services packages, along with application software packages to their commercial customers. The services segment of the market comprises various services, such as deployment and integration, support and maintenance, and managed services. The deployment and integration subsegment is expected to account for the largest market size during the forecast period. This subsegment plays a vital role in the growth of the market, as in this service the application platform, along with the monitoring software are deployed at the customer’s premises. The deployment segment consists of 2 types, namely, Application Platform-as-Service (aPaaS) and on-premises. The organization size segment is categorized into Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (SMEs) and large enterprises.

The application platform market offers a reliable platform for developers and enterprises, and helps them develop and host mission-critical business applications. Application platforms provide a multitude of features, such as load balancers, auto-scaling orchestrators, automated deployment tools, and In-Memory Data Grids (IMDGs). aPaaS is offered as cloud services and provides managed platforms for designing, building, deploying and managing customized business applications. Furthermore, aPaaS provides a cloud-based foundation for app creation and establishes stability during the app development phase.

Application Platform Market

North America is expected to account for the largest market share and dominate the application platform market during the forecast period. This region is witnessing emerging trends, such as Bring Your Own Application (BYOA) initiatives, mobility, and DevOps, which have made enterprises realize the significance of application platform software. This software proactively deploys, monitors, manages, and visualizes applications, in turn boosting the growth of the overall market in North America. Asia Pacific (APAC) has witnessed an advanced and dynamic adoption of new technologies and has always been a lucrative region. The application platform market in APAC is expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. The growth in this region is primarily driven by the strong positive outlook of regional enterprises. Owing to the rapid growth of web and mobile applications in this region, the need to deploy, monitor, protect, and manage these applications against vulnerabilities is a major concern. This concern has given rise to the demand for application platform software, as this software provides a reliable platform to develop, deploy, and manage enterprise applications.

Competition from open-source alternatives is expected to be one of the restraining factors for the growth of application platform market. However, recent developments, new product launches, and mergers and acquisitions undertaken by the major market players are expected to boost the market growth.

The study measures and evaluates key offerings and strategies of the major market vendors, including IBM (US), Oracle (US), SAP (Germany), NEC (Japan), Microsoft (US), Micro Focus (UK), Fujitsu (Japan), Hitachi (Japan), Adobe (US), HPE (US), Huawei (China), and Red Hat (US).
