Market Overview

The Complex Event Processing Market has registered a CAGR of 28.74% over the forecast period 2021 - 2026. With the growing use of sensors and connecting devices, the amount of data getting stored is increasing tremendously. In the traditional DBMS method, the problem of analyzing this data at a real-time basis is a challenge. In response, Complex Event Processing (CEP) addresses this problem, as it works on the stored query rather than stored data.

  • The advantages of CEP approach are distinct, given that CEP queries are applied on a potentially infinite stream of data. Moreover, inputs are processed immediately. Once the system processes all events for a matching sequence, results are shown directly. This aspect effectively leads to CEP’s real-time analytics capability.
  • With the revolution of the internet, the need for real-time data analytics growing rapidly from the past few years. Companies are making high investments for industrial automation, which is rising the developments in machine learning. Additionally, varied industries, along with Big Data, are making the web more complicated, which is ultimately driving the complex event processor market.
  • Along with the need for real-time data analytics, the amount of data getting stored is reaching high regularly. Hence, the demand for efficient CEP systems to effective real-time data processing is growing.

Key Market Trends

BFSI End-user Segment to Grow Significantly

  • With globally increasing IT spending toward enterprise software and communication services, which is estimated to be close to 50% of the global IT spending in 2018, CEP solutions gained a lot of attention, especially from BFSI sector for real-time analysis and gathering business intelligence for better decision making.
  • Credit card companies use CEP with Big Data analytics to manage fraud better. When a pattern of fraud incidence emerges, the company can block the credit card quickly before the company can experience significant losses, as it deals with the moving flow of data. The underlying system is expected to correlate the incoming transactions, track the stream of event data, and trigger a process.
  • Banks and trading companies are highly investing in blockchain technology, which is giving rise to the use of CEP systems. CEP systems help in integrating the lifecycle of digital transactions among various business entities, customers, systems, and technologies. With CEP, event handlers need to be configured to listen for changes in the blockchain or the connected endpoints and then correlate and invoke appropriate CEP rules to either derive an action or alert.
  • BFSI sector contributes 40% of the TCS revenue, the rising adoption of technologies like blockchain and Big Data analytics in the sector is giving rise to the application of CEP systems to formulate decision making at a real-time basis.

Asia-Pacific to Witness Significant Growth

  • Asia-Pacific is one of the fastest developing regions in blockchain technology, contributed to over 40% development in the world. The digitalization initiatives by the developing countries, like India, are driving the digital payments and banks are deploying the blockchain technology. Hence, fuels the demand for CEP solution for its efficient integration.
  • Growth in the Asia-Pacific is mainly driven by government initiatives and large multi-million dollar technology deals in the banking vertical. Some of the others factors, such as increasing demand for data storage in small to medium enterprises (SMEs) and increasing proliferation of smartphones, laptops, and tablets in the Asia-Pacific region have augmented the demand of machine learning applications in the region.
  • Retail and consumer goods companies in the region see the applicability of machine learning (ML) to drive improvements in customer service and operational efficiency. For instance, the Azure cloud is helping retail and consumer brands to improve the shopping experience by ensuring that shelves are stocked and the products are always available when, where, and how the consumer wants to shop.

Competitive Landscape

The market is consolidated as a significant share of the market lies, with the major market players. Innovation in the market requires the developers to have a better understanding of the industrial process to deliver a suitable solution. Innovation also drives close collaboration among the stakeholders during development and customization to suit the end users' need.

  • February 2019 - Google announced its intention to acquire Alooma, which allows enterprises to combine all of their data sources into services, like Google’s BigQuery, Amazon’s Redshift, Snowflake, and Azure. The company has promised that with Alooma it will handle the data pipelines and manage them for its users.
  • January 2019 - IBM is in the process of acquiring the mainframe solution provider T-Systems. This acquisition is expected to help the company in gaining a stronger hold in mainframe offerings.
