NoSQL Market by Region

The ability to comfortably manage big data is another significant reason for the adoption of Non-SQL market. The NoSQL technology is emerging in the database market horizon and is expected to grow rapidly over the next few years. This technology, ideally, is not a substitute for conventional RDBMS products such as Oracle SQL and Microsoft Access. However, it helps to overcome limitations observed in conventional RDBMS technologies. In addition, NoSQL is also a type of distributed database, which means that information is copied and stored on various servers, which can be remote or local. This ensures the availability and reliability of data. If some of the data goes offline, the rest of the database can continue to run.  

The key factors that drive the growth of the Not only SQL market include the rise in demand for big data analytics. Big data analytics solutions have gained significant adoption to increase the use of IT and control systems among business operators, particularly smartphone usage and other digital technologies. Data analytics is used for the analysis of data generated in numerous processes, highlighting key business insights which in turn support the growth of the market. The growth of NoSQL industry is augmented by the increase in need for scalable and flexible database solutions in enterprises. The rise in the growth of digital solutions in several industries all over the globe and increase in investment by public and private authorities to expand their product portfolio in database solutions have impacted the market growth. The adoption of threat intelligence solutions for compliance is further fueled by the growing adoption of cloud computing technology.

However, a significant challenge in this market is the high complexities of administrating NoSQL databases. NoSQL databases often require a different set of skills and knowledge compared to traditional relational databases. Database administrators and developers need to learn how to work with NoSQL databases effectively. This skill gap can be a barrier for organizations without the necessary expertise. Consequently, this factor impedes the wider adoption of these solutions, particularly among organizations with limited financial means.  Service providers might need to offer more flexible and scalable alternatives to cater to a broader spectrum of businesses. In addition, the potential threat of data-related inconsistencies limits the growth of the global market.  However, the rise in adoption of advanced technologies such as AI and ML is anticipated to emerge as a lucrative opportunity for the growth of the NoSQL industry.

The report analyzes the profiles of key players operating in the NoSQL market such as Aerospike Inc., Couchbase Inc., IBM Corporation, Neo4j, Inc., Objectivity, Inc, Oracle Corporation, Progress Software Corporation, Riak, ScyllaDB, Inc. and Apache Software Foundation. These players have adopted various strategies such as collaboration, acquisition, and product launch to increase their market penetration and strengthen their position in the NoSQL market.

Market Landscape and Trends

The NoSQL market has witnessed significant growth in the past few years; due to the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic, the market witnessed a sudden increase in demand during the period. This was attributed to the fact that there was an increase in demand for online services, as businesses were moving to capitalize on the increased automation and digitalization in several sectors. Furthermore, the rise in the number of COVID-19 cases influenced governments and local authorities to enforce strict measures such as social distancing and self-isolation policies to the closing of physical shops and businesses. This was intended to help slow the spread of COVID-19 cases, which further caused a growth in number of businesses depending on digital technologies. Such trends accelerated the digital transformation of physical businesses during the period of the pandemic. On the other hand, the economic uncertainties caused by the pandemic prompted organizations to seek cost-efficient solutions. Consequently, organizations could quickly scale up their business solutions deployments in the NoSQL database to accommodate a large number of remote users without the need for significant infrastructure investments. For instance, in July 2021, Couchbase launched its updated NoSQL database providing users with a series of new features that aim to narrow the gap between NoSQL and relational databases. This is expected to boost the demand for NoSQL solutions among large and small organizations.   

Top Impacting Factors
