The managed services market (henceforth, referred to as the market studied) was valued at USD 152.05 billion in 2020, and it is expected to reach USD 274.20 billion by 2026, registering a CAGR of 11.2%, during the forecast period (2021-2026).
Since the outbreak of COVID-19, the demand for cloud-based solutions has seen a significant growth owing to remote working models being adopted by enterprises; however, various industries such as retail, manufacturing, BFSI, and others have seen a significant slump in their revenues during 2020. As MSPs offer services to enterprises operating in such industries, they have also seen a decline in revenues and growth.
- Enterprises and government organizations across the world are moving from test environments to place more of their work-critical workloads and compute instances into the cloud. Further, owing to the rapidly increasing adoption of IoT, cloud, and big data analytics across multiple organizations as a major part of their digital transformation strategy, the burden on the data centers is also increasing. This is leading to the growth of the market.
- The managed services for cloud, IoT platforms, containers, DevOps, and Big Data are expected to hold tremendous potentials for managed service providers during the forecast period. Additionally, according to Cisco, 46% of network devices are likely to be machine-to-machine or IoT by 2020, which are vulnerable to attacks.
- The market studied is expected to witness a high demand for managed mobility and information services. There has been a tremendous shift in focus toward managed services and their applications for short- and long-term strategic decisions. It is estimated that successful deployment of managed services will help in reducing IT cost by 25-45% and increase operational efficiency by 45-65%.
- Additionally, over the past few years, organizations have been actively amending their strategies to get the maximum benefit out of managed services. For instance, in the past years, organizations are increasingly focusing on reducing costs by cutting down the number of suppliers and reducing the payment size. As a result, the demand for bundled services has gained immense traction in the market over discrete offerings.
- Cloud is expected to command a prominent share of the market and even grow faster due to the cost and operational benefits offered by the deployment mode expected to shift the trend away from the on-premise deployment model over the forecasted period. For instance, according to the study by NTT Ltd, over half of the respondents (52%) mentioned that the cloud would have the most transformational impact on their organization's business operations.

Key Market Trends
Manufacturing is Expected to Hold a Significant Market Share
- In the current technology-driven business environment, big data stands as one of the primary drivers of productivity and efficiency for manufacturers. With the high rate of adoption of sensors and connected devices and the enabling of M2M communication, there has been a massive increase in the data points that are generated in the manufacturing industry.
- Industries are pitching hard and fast to switch to a “smart industry”, where data generation and visualization can become real-time. From descriptive to predictive, the evolution of analytics has made the industry aware of the benefits that it can reap from this volume of data. The motto of the manufacturing industry is moving toward a metrics-based industry, which can improve decision-making based on the data-driven use of statistics.
- With the concept of Industry 4.0 influencing production establishments in the manufacturing industry, the amount of data produced from the manufacturing industry has snowballed, as they have been able to create data from each process point, varying from temperature, pressure, humidity, stress, strain, and quality, among multiple others.
- There are several applications in the field of semiconductors, consumer electronics, and the automotive industry, where manufacturers have to monitor numerous variables to ensure the quality of end products, wherein big data analytics has emerged as an effective solution to the traditional methods.
- As most of the small and medium manufacturing industries are more concentrated on hardware equipment and lack expertise in software solutions, they are outsourcing these big data analytic solutions. Outsourcing the software services is further reducing their expenditure. This trend of outsourcing other software services, such as field service management and ERP, would boost managed services during the forecast period.
