- The increased adoption of BDaaS by social media platforms will lead to growth
The increase in digitization and automation of business processes is the leading factor in the adoption of BDaaS and its subsequent market growth. With the ongoing deployment of the 5G infrastructure, this demand will become rapid as social media platforms such as Snapchat, Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, and YouTube, among others, embrace data as the main approach to reaching customers for growth. Consequently, social media platforms will play a crucial role in the rising global BDaaS market.
- Big companies will hold the largest share
Large multinationals continue to lead in the adoption of BDaaS solutions. With competition heating up, they are likely to continue investing in these solutions as they seek to access customer data and gather the right insights for improved decision-making. They help collect data scattered in various locations or departments to gain valuable insights through big data analysis. Large corporations are spending large amounts of money on training their employees and leveraging the benefits of BDaaS solutions as they seek to edge their competitors and know exactly what their customers want.
- Hadoop will continue in its leadership in this area
In the last year, Hadoop was a significant player in big data as a service. The Hadoop-as-a-service segment held about 31.6%, with the rest sharing the remaining 68.4%. Moving forward, this Hadoop segment is expected to grow exponentially, gaining more CAGR in the future as the craze for BDaaS continues rising. The growth will result from the continued adoption of Hadoop-as-a-service solutions among the small and medium-sized companies (SMEs) worldwide who seek to take advantage of this technology in their service provision.
- North America will continue dominating BDaaS investments
In 2020, North America was leading in BDaaS investments with $ 6.33 billion. This region is expected to continue holding the leadership spot between now and 2026 in terms of adopting big data as a service and the revenue coming from this industry. This is due to the number of significant players that will invest in it and others such as Intel Corporation that will go on manufacturing chips that will help in the expansion of the existing storage. However, the Asia Pacific region will register a significant increase as countries such as India, China, Japan, and South Korea raise their investments.
- Large companies will embrace joint ventures to strengthen their positions in the market
Large companies that have a global presence are looking for better alternatives to stay ahead in the competition. One of the strategies includes mergers, acquisitions, partnerships, and joint ventures. In most cases, smaller companies are acquired by bigger ones, while others may strike partnership deals to compete favorably in the market. IBM is one of the companies with large big data as a service market share and has been launching solutions and building partnerships that help companies gather data of customers for use in marketing and decision-making activities.
