Industry Insights

The application container market across the globe generated a revenue of USD 1.5 billion in 2018. It is expected to witness growth with 26.5% CAGR over the forecasted years, 2019 to 2025. This growth can be associated with its features like assisting in creating, deploying, and upgrading many solutions on a sole OS kernel. Moreover, it helps in process automation for carrying out processes like scheduling, scaling, and monitoring of management solutions.

Many organizations across the globe have started adopting technologies that are cloud-based owing to their feature of huge data storage capacity. Also, other factors like low cost of maintenance, enhanced security, and remote access are expected to propel their demand in upcoming years. Several cloud computing solutions like PaaS, IaaS, and SaaS are also anticipated to majorly contribute to the market growth.         

U.S. application container market

A huge amount of data is generated with IoT devices (Internet-of-Things) which are expected to drive market growth. Emerging concepts like the connected home, smart cities, connected healthcare, and connected cars are prevailing among the millennial population which is projected to drive the market growth in the upcoming years.

Docker platform allows collaboration and deployment of applications on a single setup. Thus, it is largely becoming popular among several users thereby creating opportunities for market growth.

In 2018, the large enterprise segment generated revenue of USD 950.0 million. It is projected to witness a 26.0% CAGR from 2019 to 2025.  This growth can be attributed to their robust infrastructure and availability of large capital for carrying out R&D activities. For example, Goldman Sachs and Bank of America Corporation have been using these containers due to their easy deployment process and simple architecture.

The SMEs segment is projected to register the highest growth rate during the forecasted period, 2019 to 2025. This can be attributed to its surging adoption among several small & medium enterprises on account of easy administration and management and cost-effectiveness.

Platform Insights

In 2018, the segment of the docker platform held a significant share across the global application container market.  It is expected to continue its growth from 2019 to 2025.  This can be associated with the usage of such platforms to automate the scanning process and boost data security.

Kubernetes platform segment is also expected to register substantial growth across the global market, in 2018. This growth can be accounted to the flexibility of Kubernetes for functioning along with other multi-container applications. While, the other segment includes Hashicorp Nomad, AWS ECS, and Mesos is also expected to witness growth in the upcoming years.

Application Insights

In 2018, the BFSI segment held the largest share across the global market. This can be associated with the surging usage of containerization for benefits like administration easiness, security, and cost-effectiveness. For example, a platform named aPaaS was launched by Barclays to enhance its cloud platform.

The segment of Telecommunication and IT is projected to witness around 28.0% CAGR during the forecasted years, 2019 to 2025. This can be associated with the rapid increase in the IT industry across countries like India, China, and Japan.

Service Insights

North America is projected to be a major adopter of such solutions. This region adopts technologies like hybrid cloud, containerization, and DevOps due to the presence of providers like Google, Inc.; IBM; and Cisco Systems.

Global application container market

The segment of monitoring & security is projected to register the highest revenue until 2025. This can be attributed to the container’s ability to identify errors that can withstand system breakdowns. For example, a platform created by BMC Software, Inc. named TrueSight provides alerts related to visualizations and microservices.

Regional Insights

In 2018, North America held a share of 35.0% across the global market. This growth can be attributed to the rising adoption of technologies like cloud-native by vendors coupled with their collaboration with many technology providers. For example, Google, Inc., and NetApp had collaborated, in 2018 to enhance their storage and cloud-native capabilities.

Asia Pacific is anticipated to register a 30.0% CAGR in the forecasted years, 2019 to 2025. This can be attributed to the adoption of technologies like IoT, hybrid cloud, and DevOps across countries like China, Japan, and India.
