Data Preparation Market Analysis

The data preparation market was valued at USD 4.78 billion last year and is expected to reach USD 13.51 billion in the next six years, registering a CAGR of 18.74% over the forecast period. Due to digital disruption, companies are demanding faster debugging time to generate meaningful insights than ever to sustain in the market. As a result, the analytics requirement, particularly data analytics, is becoming pervasive among organizations. Data analytics professionals and companies need help driving insights owing to the rising complexities in procuring data. This significantly drives the demand for data preparation among organizations.

  • The rapid adoption of automation and cloud technologies across enterprises and businesses resulted in tremendous data generation and cloud data traffic. According to Cisco Systems, the global IP data traffic is anticipated to reach 333 exabytes per month. There is a significant shift in data traffic from P2P (peer-to-peer) file sharing to video content delivery, especially in large content service providers (CSPs).
  • This significant increase in the volume of data has resulted in the swift proliferation of data and data analytics. Therefore, businesses are demanding faster time to insight than ever to remain competitive, particularly as more industries face digital disruption. As a result, analytics is becoming more pervasive across enterprises, and wisdom is derived from more significant numbers of diverse data sources. Thus, in turn, driving the data preparation market.
  • Moreover, various end-user companies are constantly evolving and becoming more data-centric to stay ahead of the competition. Companies today gather unprecedented amounts of data that they want to use to make informed decisions, spot business trends, and increase efficiency. To help employees turn data into action, organizations are rapidly shifting towards data preparation tools, thus driving the market's growth.
  • Further, leading market players are integrating advanced technologies, such as artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML), with data preparation to read, interpret, and flatten complex data structures. Such factors further boost the demand for data preparation solutions.
  • The spread of COVID-19 accelerated the adoption of data preparation tools. For instance, IBM Cognos Analytics is an AI-fueled business intelligence platform that supports the entire analytics cycle, from discovery to operationalization. It cleanses and combines data sources in minutes with AI-assisted data preparation.

Data Preparation Market Trends

IT and Telecom Segment is Expected to Hold a Significant Market Share

  • Telecom and IT companies worldwide are creating a data gold mine as they generate plenty of data. The lack of practical analysis of unstructured and structured data to get more profound insights into customer behavior and the growing need to analyze their preferences and service usage patterns in real-time motivates these companies to adopt data analytics, indirectly impacting the market's growth.
  • Further, in the highly evolving and competitive industry, the telecommunication industry plays a significant role in handling massive data sets of customers, network, and call data. Further, to thrive in such a competitive environment, the telecom industry players are significantly adopting data preparation solutions to create helpful business insights to stay ahead of the competitors.
  • Data solutions help the IT and telecom industry to empower exploratory analytics, increase analyst productivity, and improve organizational data usage. While telecommunications providers are used to dealing with large volumes of customer data, the considerable complexity of modern-day data is a new challenge.
  • In addition, the exponential growth in data traffic also drives the demand for data preparation in the IT and telecom industry. For instance, according to the data from Cisco Systems, by 2022, mobile data traffic worldwide is expected to reach 77.5 exabytes per month.
  • Moreover, as per Ericsson, In 2022, smartphones across the globe used an average of 15.93 gigabytes of mobile data per month, up from 12.18 gigabytes in 2021. Additionally, the figure is expected to reach 47.27 gigabytes by 2028.
  • Moreover, market vendors like IBM Corporation have helped many leading telecom industry data analytics providers re-engineer their market measurement products. The effort included restructuring data integration processes, developing new custom user interfaces, and making workflow automation. Further, integrating the ML solution with data preparation tools is gaining the market.
