This market research study presents a comprehensive analysis of the global database as a service market by end user (BFSI, healthcare, government, and others), by type of service (SQL and NoSQL), and by geography (the Americas, APAC, and EMEA). Some of the leading vendors in the market are Amazon Web Services, IBM, Microsoft, and Oracle.

Overview of the database as a service (DBaaS) market

Extensive research carried out by market research analysts at Technavio has shown that database as a service (DBaaS) market will witness exponential growth and will post an impressive CAGR of more than 65% over the forecast period. Without the availability of DBaaS, companies across various industries are forced to rely on hardware servers that need a lot of resources. This dependency on hardware resources will lead to an increase in their overall operating costs. Therefore, instead of investing large amounts in hardware technologies, companies are more inclined to invest in pay-as-you-go services with a weekly, quarterly, or annual cloud computing subscription. Moreover, shifting to cloud computing lowers costs by pooling resources that can be distributed to applications as needed. Cloud computing not only helps companies scale up or down when needed but also helps them manage maintenance costs accordingly. 

In this industry research report, our analysts have deduced factors such as the increasing adoption of mobile devices and smartphones and the rising popularity of mobile apps to prompt several companies to use DBaaS. Moreover, the ubiquity of smart devices has prompted enterprises to adopt solutions that allow access to real-time data. Also, the adoption of these mobility solutions will help organizations access enterprise documents through smart devices and will enable working professionals to seamlessly access and exchange organizational documents from remote locations as per their requirements. The ease of access and transfer of data will lead to the growth of this market over the next four years.

Segmentation by end user and analysis of the DBaaS market

During 2015, the BFSI sector dominated the market and accounted for more than 21% of the market share in terms of revenue. The BFSI sector is actively becoming an information-intensive sector as most products and services in the banking sector have become digital in nature. Some of the most important transaction processes such as electronic fund transfer, interbank settlement, and securities trading are now completely digitized. With an increase in financial transaction volumes, financial firms are experiencing explosive data growth. Therefore, the growing need to manage this exponential surge in data will contribute to this segment’s growth prospects until the end of 2020.

The Americas led the global DBaaS market and accounted for nearly 60% of the market share during 2015. Most industries in the region have adopted cloud technologies to improve risk management and focus on customer targeted marketing abilities.

Additionally, organizations also invest in latest digital technologies such as cloud, mobility, analytics, and social media to stay ahead in the market.
