MarketsandMarkets forecast the Backend as a Service market size to grow from USD 1.32 Billion in 2015 to USD 28.10 Billion by 2020, at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 84.2%. The BaaS is a middleware service which is very similar to platform as a service cloud computing service model. However, BaaS is different from platform as a service in the way that BaaS provides higher level abstraction to the developers. Over the passage of time, it has been observed that due to the proliferation of apps and mobile devices, the enterprises are developing enterprise applications to improve customer satisfaction and boost employee productivity.

Usage Analytics segment among the services type is gaining huge traction and is growing at a high CAGR during the forecast period. The BaaS vendors provide analytics capabilities, such as monitoring active users, active devices, events, API calls, and storage. This service type comprises push notifications, location, beacons, emails, and SMS. The analytics dashboard enables the mobile app developers to track the usage of app and take control to deliver superior experiences across all devices and platforms.

Android and others segment comprising Windows and Blackberry is expected to grow at a high growth rate during the forecast period. The android operating system is open source software and many of the leading smartphone manufacturers are developing android supporting applications as these apps are user-friendly and easy to operate. The others segment, comprising Windows and Blackberry, provides high security features. Therefore majority of the business professionals use these smartphones.

Manufacturing industry vertical is expected to gain maximum share by 2020 due to the increasing adoption of BaaS service types. The key factor responsible for accelerating the Backend as a Service market space is due to the Internet of Things (IoT) technology where all the devices are connected with each other in the form of sensors further creating numerous opportunities for the service providers to cater to the manufacturing industry worldwide.

Cloud/Mobile Backend As A Service (BaaS) Market

North America is expected to have the largest market share and will dominate the market from 2015 to 2020 owing to various innovations through research and development and technology and increasing demand for business flexibility and agility. The Backend as a Service market is expected to experience huge growth in Asia-Pacific (APAC) due to improved technology, cost efficiency, scalability, and improved productivity.

Major factors that are restraining the growth of the market are lack of security and high initial cost of investment. The major vendors in the mobile Backend as a Service market include Microsoft, IBM Corporation, Oracle Corporation, Kony, Kinvey, AnyPresence, Appcelerator, Built.IO Backend, CloudMine, and KII Corporation. These players adopted various strategies such as new product launches, mergers and acquisitions, partnerships, collaborations, agreements, and business expansions to expand their product portfolios and increase their global footprint in the Backend as a Service market.
