Top Impacting Factors  

Increase in Demand for Business Digitization

Organizations operating in BFSI, manufacturing, automotive, energy & utilities, and several other verticals are forced to adopt digital technologies to stay ahead in the market owing to the digital transformation. Low-code development platform plays a critical role in the digital transformation journey of an organization as it helps to reduce time and resources, as compared to the traditional software development process. With the increase in demand for business applications across industries, the platform is expected to play a pivotal role in enabling quick digitization of business processes, such as sales, accounting and finance, and operations. Thus, the rise in focus on digitization results in increase in growth of the low-code development platform market, globally. Furthermore, increase in the use of cloud-based software development, machine learning, and artificial intelligence (AI) is further accelerating the growth and quality of this industry.

Less Dependency on IT Professionals

Application development backlog is the major obstacle faced by the IT department across industries. Numerous business departments, such as human resources (HR), operations, and accounting & finance, require different applications to improve process efficiency; however, interruption in applications’ delivery affects overall productivity. Organizations have started to adopt low-code solutions to reduce the workload on the IT department. These low-code solutions help citizen developers (non-professional developers) develop business applications, reduce the overall cost, and minimize the workload for IT professionals, which, in turn, drives the growth of the low-code development platform market. Furthermore, based on several studies, it is noted that a low-code platform is never a replacement for a firm’s existing IT department. Instead, low-code functions as an extension of the IT team, which allows for better collaboration between the organization and IT.

Stringent Government Norms Moderately Impact the Market

With the growing number of data breaches, the European Union has introduced General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) Act, which defines how organizations are permitted to use personal data. Therefore, organizations need to comply with such strict regulatory norms before processing personal data, which complicates the application development process. However, with low-code development platform, organizations can develop business applications in compliance with governments’ rules and regulations. Therefore, stringent government regulatory norms are projected to drive the growth of the low-code development platform industry, globally.

COVID-19 Impact Analysis

The low-code development platform market has witnessed significant growth in the past few years. The COVID-19 pandemic has increased business's need to automate processes and prioritize digital transformation initiatives. Low-code development platforms address this need, helping streamline workflows and accelerate automation projects. A low-code model promotes rapid application development by making the user experience more accessible. Both non-professional and professional developers benefit from core capabilities, such as a visual integrated development environment (IDE), built-in data connectors and/or APIs, and code templates. All these functionalities of low-code tools improve the DevOps process, allowing more time for innovation.

According to Magic Quadrant Report, it is anticipated that over 50% of medium to large companies will adopt a low-code application platform in the upcoming years. Furthermore, many businesses have invested in low-code development platform to ease the increasing complexities of IT needs during the forecast period.

Furthermore, low-code development platforms greatly benefit enterprises by breaking down boundaries between IT and business analysts. Business users can bring innovative ideas to life by just dragging and dropping readymade elements or code snippets. These proof-of-concept apps simplify the life of programmers who can use them as a starting point when building enterprise software. Businesses can streamline, automate, and standardize manual internal processes so that developers are not overburdened and can focus on higher-value tasks. Minimizing overwhelming coding needs gives IT relief from the pressure of their oftentimes unconquerable app backlog. This eliminates the need for businesses to employ risky third-party apps outside their certified IT infrastructure. Such factors are anticipated to create numerous opportunities for the market players during the forecast period.

Moreover, businesses are shifting towards digitalization and increasing implementation of Industry 4.0, which creates the need for a seamless solution and platform to meet business requirements. Therefore, it eventually escalates the adoption of low-code development platform in industries rapidly. Thus, it is predicted to drive the growth of the low-code development platform market forecast.
