Application containers will be a $2.7bn market by 2020, representing a small but high-growth segment of the Cloud-Enabling Technologies market

The application container market will grow from $762m in 2016 to $2.7bn by 2020, according to 451 Research’s latest Cloud-Enabling Technologies (CET) Market Monitor. Despite making up a relatively small portion of the overall CET market, application containers will see the fastest growth compared to other segments, with an estimated CAGR of 40%.

One of the most remarkable things about the emergent application container ecosystem is the number of vendors large and small that are meaningfully leveraging or offering application-container technology and support. 451 has identified and currently tracks 125 individual application container vendors – and we expect new market entrants to emerge quarterly, including many yet to be identified as container providers.

While containers have enjoyed a great deal of attention and hype in the enterprise, adoption and revenue are just starting to emerge. Though it is still early days for containers in the enterprise, our research has revealed increased movement beyond development and testing to production use.

451 Research’s Voice of the Enterprise: Software-Defined Infrastructure Workloads and Key Projects survey conducted in April and May 2016 showed that of the roughly 25% of enterprises we surveyed who use containers, 34% were in broad implementation of production applications and 28% had begun initial implementation of production applications with containers. This is an impressive adoption growth profile for a technology that has only been in the enterprise for a few years.

Security is changing. New innovations are making defenses such as anti-malware more of a reality than ever before, while yesterday’s incumbents are being remade through new acquisitions as well as selloffs of their legacy security businesses.

Will security’s innovations be ready enough, soon enough to protect enterprises from today’s emerging threats?
