This market research report identifies AWS, Docker, Google, and Microsoft as the key vendors in the global application container market. This market research report also presents a detailed analysis of the application container market share by platform (swarm and kubernetes) and by geography (the Americas, APAC, and EMEA).

Global application container market overview

Technavio’s market research report predicts that the global application container market size will grow at a CAGR of above 31% during the forecast period. The rising construction of containerized and modular facilities is one of the primary drivers for application container market growth. Containerized facilities are portable data centers in a shipping container consisting of pre-installed data center infrastructure. These services are a portion of modular data centers with each module being a container that can host IT, power, and cooling infrastructure to power critical business operations. The deployment cost of these container data center solutions is lower than building new facilities and renovating old ones. Microsoft deployed its first modular data center in Virginia (US) and is planning to increase its existing modular facility with an investment of around USD 250 million through its new-generation IT-PAC.

The rapid adoption of hybrid cloud technology is one of the latest application container market trends that will gain traction during the forecast period. Hybrid cloud computing is mostly a cloud computing deployment model that utilizes a mixture of private and public cloud solutions. The deployment of a hybrid cloud computing model mainly offers flexibility in the cloud environment and can also be extended to fuse two or more two types of cloud computing deployment models. The hybrid cloud environment has gained popularity among enterprises to protect online data from cyber-attacks. These solutions are altering the IT ecosystems of the small businesses by offering additional solutions for backup and recovery solutions.

Competitive analysis and key vendors

According to Technavio’s application container market statistics report, this sector is growing rapidly due to the presence of startups since the legacy companies are concentrating on application development technology. To gain a competitive edge in the industry, the application container market vendors are offering enhanced services and compete to connect the enterprise-related gaps in using container applications. As the technology is an open-source platform, the application container market statistics report predicts that the growing number of cloud service providers will result in the rapid adoption of application containers.

Some of the key vendors in the market are:

  • AWS
  • Docker
  • Google
  • Microsoft

Other prominent vendors include CoreOS, Mesosphere, Nimble Storage, Red Hat, VMware, BlueData, Cisco, Draios (Sysdig platform), IBM, Joyent, Apprendra (Acquires Kismatic, an enterprise Kubernetes support company), Portworx, Rancher Labs (Rancher platform), Twistlock, and Weaveworks.

Segmentation by platform and the application container market analysis

  • Swarm
  • Kubernetes

During 2016, the swarm platform segment led the application container market. However, this market research and analysis estimate that the kubernetes segment will dominate the market during the forecast period due to the presence of a strong ecosystem such as Hadoop model and the less utilization of hardware because of the lightweight containers used by Kubernetes.

Geographical segmentation and analysis of the application container market

  • Americas
  • APAC
  • EMEA

In terms of geography, EMEA accounted for the majority of the application container market shares during 2016 and is foreseen to continue the domination during the forecast period. The rise in the adoption of cloud-based services in Europe and the use of hybrid cloud environments in the region will drive the growth of the market during the next four years.
