The Application Container market size is estimated to grow from USD 1.99 Billion in 2020 to USD 11.7 Billion by 2027, growing at a CAGR of 28.8 % during the forecast year from 2021 to 2027.

This growth is expected to be fueled by the increasing number of container orchestration services and container security services deployed in enterprises globally.

An application container is an Operating System (OS)-level virtualization that deploys and runs distributed applications without actually running a virtual machine. It is more efficient than hardware infrastructure virtualization, which provides the same Kernel OS to various isolated applications and enables them to run on a single host. Application containers usually work on virtual machines, cloud instances, and bare-metal cloud systems across different OS.

By service, container orchestration service is expected to hold the largest market share during the forecast period

The application container market by service has been segmented into container orchestration, container data management, container security, container networking, container monitoring, consulting, and support and maintenance. As more and more applications are migrating to the cloud, the demand for application containers is also expected to be increasing among enterprises. Cloud-native applications and legacy application modernization, bundled with DevOps strategies adopted by various enterprises, are expected to be driving the demand for application container services. The container orchestration segment is expected to hold the largest market share during the forecast period; this significant market share can be attributed to the high demand for efficient container management and container orchestration services among organizations.

By vertical, banking, financial services and insurance vertical is expected to hold the largest market share during the forecast period

The application container market has been segmented based on different verticals, namely, telecommunications and IT, education, BFSI, media and entertainment, healthcare and life sciences, retail and e-commerce, and others. The BFSI vertical is estimated to hold the largest market share and expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. The main factor driving the growth of the application container services in the BFSI vertical is the omnichannel approach and the trend of shifting towards cloud environment. The demand for application container services is estimated to be gaining traction across all industries. Since cloud transformation has become one of the key elements of enterprise strategies today, the demand for application container services is also seen to be increasing.

Asia Pacific is expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period

APAC is expected to experience the highest growth in terms of adopting application container services during the forecast period. The growth is likely to be driven by factors, such as the increased spending on improving infrastructures and the emergence of advanced and secured cloud-based solutions, tax reformation policies, smart cities initiatives, and the rise of the digital economy. The major countries that are expected to witness high growth rates in this region include China, Japan, Singapore, Australia and New Zealand (ANZ), and the rest of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) countries. Companies in this region are transforming their strategy from customer acquisition to customer experience. Most of the leading companies are changing their legacy applications and securing them. With the application container technology, organizations can make their applications agiler. Moreover, organizations can quickly adapt or migrate to the cloud by developing their applications on application container platforms.

Market Dynamics

Driver: Growing need for business agility and faster time-to-market

Enterprises require coordination to grow and respond to the increase in competition. This can be achieved only by adopting the latest technologies and developing and delivering modern applications. The existence of legacy environments hinder technological adoptions and require transformations at the application, platform, and technology levels. Application containers help in quickening the application development process by minimizing the testing time and reducing the complexities of testing processes, thereby bringing about agility. In addition to this, the container orchestration streamlines the deployment of applications in various environments, such as physical or virtual and public, private, or hybrid cloud infrastructures. This gives a competitive advantage to enterprises and results in increased efficiency, reduced application-related costs, and a better Return on Investment (RoI).

Restraint: Emergence of application container sprawl

Container sprawl is a term used to describe the running of unmanageable, multiple instances of applications through containers, and the corresponding heavy resource consumption resulting from it. Resource consumption, in various cases, results in fewer resources for running useful containers. Moreover, the chances of misconfiguration and mishandling of unmanageable containers on a particular host increase its chances of misconfiguration and mishandling. Container sprawl can drive up the costs of the public cloud environment. Large enterprises are at a higher risk of container sprawls than the Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (SMEs). Tracking and mapping of containers would soon become a necessity, as more and more applications are starting to get containerized. To counter the container sprawl, enterprises need to adopt an efficient DevOps and security strategy.

Opportunity: Rising adoption of IoT among various verticals

IoT has become the frontline technology due to its enormous business benefits. Multiple organizations across the globe are rapidly implementing IoT technology. The application container technology helps in realizing the real benefits of the IoT technology. Application containers offer features, such as the ability to migrate applications between IoT devices, enable application sign-ups and switch to different hosts, offer easy application upgrades, and provide simplicity and faster configuration, which are all well-suited for IoT technology. Application containers are also innately capable of running applications on IoT edge devices that consist of limited resources and majorly support lightweight OS. The demand for application containers in the IoT arena can be attributed to the need for frequent and fast IoT application updates at scale.

Challenge: Security risks associated with the application container technology

Committing to the application container technology could result in significant cost benefits and faster time-to-market, but it also presents various security challenges that need to be addressed. Application containers cannot isolate from the host operating system, as they share the same host OS as the other containers. There is a chance that if a hacker gains access to the host OS, it can breach the security of other containers as well. In addition to this, network hacking could lead to cross-container threats. Container-based security, like encryption services, can be challenging to attain, as users may have to build an Application Programming Interface (API) call from the containers to enable encryption services. Therefore, the whole application development process in containers need to be monitored continuously to minimize the risks and improve the security features.
