The global application platform as a service (aPaaS) market was valued at $6,023.3 million in 2020, and it is expected to showcase a CAGR of 14.2% during the forecast period (2021–2030). This is primarily attributed to the increasing preference of customers for advanced software and rising demand for cloud computing. Additionally, aPaaS provides a balance between the flexibility in customization and cost-effectiveness of enterprise-level applications. Moreover, the rising demand for flexibility and scalability in application development is expected to drive the market growth over the forecast years.
The COVID-19 outbreak has negatively impacted the world on economic platform, rippling its effect on technology adoption. However, the demand is expected to increase for advanced technology domain, which encompasses augmented reality (AR), artificial intelligence (AI), cloud computing, virtual reality (VR), and autonomous driving. Moreover, the rapid spread of COVID-19 has led to the implementation of the work-from-home model, which is driving the demand for cloud computing applications, thereby impacting the global aPaaS business positively.
In 2020, the hybrid category accounted for the largest size in the aPaaS market, on the basis of deployment mode. This is primarily attributed to the increasing adoption of hybrid cloud by enterprises to share data and apps between different clouds. Additionally, the rising deployment of multiple cloud services, for cost savings, and increasing demand for improved efficiency and productivity through centralized cloud governance are augmenting the popularity of the hybrid cloud deployment mode for aPaaS solutions.
The SMEs category, based on enterprise type, is projected to witness the faster growth in the market during the forecast period. This can be attributed to the increasing adoption of cloud platforms by such firms to improve the scalability of internet-based database capabilities and reducing the cost and risk associated with the implementation of database system.
The implementation & integration category held the largest market share in the service segment in 2020. The implementation of aPaaS solutions in an enterprise leads to a one-time high capital investment, therefore is a major source of revenue for service providers. This initial investment is associated with both the on-premises and cloud-based versions, though cloud-based integration is comparatively a cost-effective alternative.
During the historical period (2014–2020), North America held the largest aPaaS market share due to the high spending on-cloud based services by enterprises. Further, the rising demand for IT solutions that offer agility, scalability, pay-per-use-based pricing, and reduced cost & time would propel the market.
The major factor driving the market growth in the region is the rising adoption of cloud computing in the retail and manufacturing industries in China, India, and Australia. Moreover, the heavy investments by governments, rapid growth in the IT infrastructure, and increasing development of the corporate sector in China and India are expected to drive the market growth in the region.
The most-prominent trend in the aPaaS market is the increasing customer preference for technologically advanced software and growing focus of software companies on innovative solutions to meet these requirements. Moreover, APAC is experiencing digital transformation by adopting low-code application platforms, which is further expected to drive the adoption of solutions.
The demand for flexibility and scalability in application development is increasing across the globe. The development and deployment of on-premise applications require hardware, databases, operating systems (OS), and other types of software. PaaS provides the infrastructure over the internet to deploy the applications. Thus, by using aPaaS, enterprises can avoid unnecessary investment in the technicalities involved in modulating generic software for application-specific purposes and working from scratch. aPaaS offers a specialized software platform for the development of business applications that helps enterprises save cost, as well as time.
aPaaS allows for the customization of enterprise-level applications without degrading their cost-effectiveness. This is done by microservices, which enable companies to deploy applications at a lower cost and in lesser time. aPaaS has the ability to solve problems by providing user-friendly interfaces for different enterprise applications. Moreover, aPaaS offers a reliable medium to monitor additional backend services, such as computing, data storage, and coordination among various business processes within the organization.
