Cloud native software enable organizations to develop and run scalable applications in public, private, and hybrid clouds. It utilizes services offered by various cloud platforms including application development, testing, delivery, and operations. The software generally follows 12 factors and related best practices to enable cloud-native architecture and development. Services offered through cloud native software include containers, microservices architecture, continuous integration and delivery (CI/CD), immutable infrastructure, declarative APIs, and metadata-driven management. Key use cases of cloud native software include online retail, ecommerce, banking, gaming, e-learning, media & entertainment, healthcare, and government sectors.
The global cloud native software Market is estimated to be valued at US$ 5.8 Bn in 2023 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 10.% over the forecast period 2023 to 2030, as highlighted in a new report published by Coherent Market Insights.
Rising adoption of cloud services is expected to drive the growth of global cloud native software market over the forecast period. As per CMI analysis, cloud computing adoption has grown exponentially as enterprises are migrating their infrastructures and applications to public clouds for cost optimization, scalability, and agility. For example, according to RightScale’s 2022 State of the Cloud Report, 94% of the respondents said they use public cloud infrastructure like Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud Platform. Furthermore, rapid growth of data volumes driven by digital initiatives of organizations is compelling them to develop and deploy cloud native applications optimized for scalability on public clouds. However, security and compliance challenges posed by cloud platforms can hamper the market growth during the forecast period.
The cloud native software market is dominated by the SaaS(Software as a Service) segment which accounts for nearly 70% of the total market revenue. Cloud based SaaS solutions provides easier deployment, maintenance and regular upgrades compared to on premise installation. They have minimal upfront investment and ongoing costs are based on pay-per-use pricing which makes it affordable for startups and SMEs. Other segments include PaaS (Platform as a Service) and IaaS (Infrastructure as a Service) but SaaS dominates owing to the operational efficiencies and competitive pricing provided to customers.
