Top impacting factors
Current and future microservices architecture market trends are outlined to determine the overall attractiveness of the market. Top impacting factors highlight the opportunity during the forecast period. Factors such as increase in need for digital transformations, surge in penetration of connected devices, and rise in adoption of cloud-based solutions are expected to boost the market growth. However, security and compliance issues associated with the implementation of microservices architecture are expected to impede the market growth during the forecast period. On the contrary, increase in adoption of virtualized infrastructure is expected to provide major growth opportunities for the market in the upcoming years.
Proliferation of connected devices
The rising adoption of the Internet of Things (IoT) has heavily impacted the adoption of connected devices in numerous organizations. For instance, according to survey by GSM Association’s Connected Life, by the end of 2020 there will be over 24 billion connected devices. In addition, according to Cisco’s recent Internet of Everything prediction, there would be over 37 billion intelligent things connected to the Internet such as, smartphones, appliances, tablets, cars, sensor, and others. Moreover, these devices in turn involve various complexities from communication, cooperation to application. Thus, with the microservice architecture and its distributed approach such complexities would be reduced significantly.
Increasing adoption of virtualized infrastructure
The market for virtualization of servers is growing for the recent past. The major reason behind the adoption of virtualization is mainly attributed to the maintenance and infrastructural cost associated with the servers. Moreover, many organizations have already invested into virtual infrastructure; also numerous cloud service providers are using virtual machines (VMs) for their infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) offerings. Furthermore, virtualization of servers divides a server into slots for various users using virtual machines (VMs). However, microservices architecture is considered to be more efficient than VMs as it can share an OS. On the contrary, virtual machines (VMs) require their own OS, in turn consumes more resources. Thus, such factors are anticipated to provide major opportunities for the microservices architecture market.

The adoption of Kubernetes, an open-source container orchestration system, is growing continuously, due to which a number of companies are recognizing that it is not enough to adopt it but they also have to change all aspects of their tools, processes, and architecture. Kubernetes is expected to provide a major push for company-wide changes. Moreover, it offers a superior way to manage containers and make microservices architectures practical at an enterprise scale. Moreover, owing to ongoing advancements in intelligent technology, the demand for microservice architecture is increasing in the manufacturing sector, as the traditional automation pyramid is dissolving, which is expected to drive the growth of the market. In addition, shift in trend of manufacturing IT toward service orientation and app-orientation is expected to boost the adoption of microservice architecture in the manufacturing industry in the upcoming years. Furthermore, the adoption of cloud-based technology is increasing among the manufacturing companies to gain a competitive edge in the market with the support of information technology and computer-aided capabilities.
The microservice architecture market is fragmented and key players are using different strategies, such as partnerships, acquisitions, and new product launches to strengthen their foothold in this market. For instance, in May 2017, Informatica launched Intelligent Cloud Service, which is the most advanced Integration platform-as-a-service (iPaaS) solution available for end-to-end enterprise cloud data management. The solution is expected to provide a next-generation user experience depending on a modern API-based microservices architecture.
