Application Modernization Services Market Overview

This market has been studied and analyzed for the following segments: services, organization size, verticals, and regions. By service, application integration is expected to dominate with the largest market share as a result of the increasing need to integrate existing legacy applications and databases with new ones in order to update them. By growth rate, application replatforming is projected to lead during the forecast period. New platforms offer more scalability and flexibility for faster application development.

By organization size, the largest market share is projected for large enterprises during the forecast period. This can be attributed to the need to reduce high Capital Expenditure (CAPEX) and Operational Expenditure (OPEX) of these organizations. Large enterprises, with high budgets for IT, employ in-house resources for application modernization services. Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (SMEs) are expected to exhibit the highest CAGR since the adoption of the lift-and-shift migration strategy is high among these organizations, which enables their businesses to scale and grow faster.

Among verticals, Banking, Financial Services, and Insurance (BFSI) is projected to dominate in terms of market share during the forecast period, as a result of digital transformation through new technologies and modernization of existing applications. The manufacturing vertical is projected to witness the highest CAGR; this could be a result of the need to improve operational processes, reduce costs, launch products faster, and eliminate location barriers.

By region, the largest projected market share for the forecast period is that of North America. Early adoption of application modernization services along with the high number of related projects are expected to drive market growth here. By growth rate, Asia Pacific (APAC) is expected to lead this market. This high growth rate can be a result of the increased spending on infrastructure improvements and the use of big data and cloud computing technologies.

Despite a high growth rate, the application modernization services market faces limitations due to the significantly high investments in legacy systems, which restrain the deployment of advanced service technologies.
