Objectives of the Study

The main objective of this report is to define, describe, and forecast the global big data market on the basis of software, service, data type, deployment model, vertical, and region. The report contains an analysis of the major factors influencing the growth of the market (drivers, restraints, opportunities, and challenges). It aims to strategically analyze the micromarkets with respect to individual growth trends, prospects, and their contribution to the market. The report attempts to forecast the market size for 5 major regions, namely, North America, Europe, Asia Pacific (APAC), Middle East and Africa (MEA), and Latin America. It contains key vendor profiles and comprehensively analyzes their core competencies. The report also tracks and analyzes competitive developments, including partnerships, collaborations, acquisitions, new product developments, and R&D activities in the big data market.

The research methodology used to estimate and forecast the big data market starts with data collection through secondary research on key vendors. The sources referred for secondary research include D&B Hoover’s, Bloomberg Businessweek, and Factiva. The vendor offerings were taken into consideration in order to determine the market segmentation. The bottom-up procedure was employed to arrive at the overall market size of the global big data market from the revenue of the key players in the market. 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 personnel, such as Chief Marketing Officers (CMOs), and 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 the segments and subsegments. The breakdown of primary profiles is depicted in the below figure:
