Low-code Development Platform Market Analysis

The low-code development platform market was valued at USD 7.61 billion in 2021. It is expected to reach USD 36.43 billion by 2027, registering a CAGR of approximately 29.81% during 2022-2027 (hereafter referred to as the forecast period).

  • The rapid growth of low-code adoption happened after businesses moved to digital modernization, which included improving user experiences, automating processes, and upgrading critical systems. Due to their low cost, low-code development platforms have proven ideal.
  • The advantages of low code are its drag-and-drop interface, which saves time. In low code, every single process is shown visually with the help of a graphical interface that makes everything easier to understand. It makes it easier for developers to create their applications.
  • Although low-code solutions are not new, the demand for the technology soared in the last two years as companies were challenged to meet stakeholder demand for more digital transformation. Companies can expand digital transformation efforts with low-code tools through faster business application delivery. In addition, the time it takes to innovate is dramatically reduced with low-code tools.
  • Low-code solutions allow organizations to produce working solutions and integrations with more speed and agility than traditional on-premise developments. Integration used to be a labor-intensive IT process requiring custom development on both sides of the integration.
  • The low-code solution might not be compatible with any competitor or similar provider. Even if the user can export the source code, it will depend on the vendor's platform to work, and the user can only use it as a backup.
  • The disruption caused by the COVID-19 pandemic increased the tendency of enterprises to adopt low-code platforms. Companies that did not previously have low-code platform systems could not easily and quickly adapt their ERP system to the new challenges of remote operations. On the other hand, companies with a low-code platform adapted significantly faster.

Low-code Development Platform Industry Segmentation

A low-code development platform (LCDP) offers a coding environment that enables developers with varying levels of expertise to build applications using a dynamic graphical user interface and configuration in conjunction with model-driven logic instead of conventional hand-coded computer programming. For specific situations, these platforms may require extensive coding.

The low-code development platform market is segmented by application type (web-based, mobile-based, desktop- and server-based), deployment type (on-premise and cloud), organization size (small and medium enterprises, large enterprises), end-user verticals (BFSI, retail and e-commerce, information technology, energy & utilities, manufacturing, healthcare, government and defense, and other end-user verticals), and geography.

  • In February 2021, at the MWC Shanghai 2021, Huawei Global Technical Service launched the General Digital Engine (GDE) platform. The GDE adopts the "1+4+N" architecture: "1" refers to an open cloud-native platform; "4" means four capabilities that enable data sharing, intelligent production flow, capability sharing, and integrated low-code self-development. The platform introduces digital and smart technologies into carriers' planning, construction, maintenance, optimization, and operation processes to help them transform into digital carriers and partners, enabling operations to innovate "N" application scenarios.
  • In June 2021, HCL Technologies (HCL), a global technology company, announced the general availability of the latest version of Domino, its secure enterprise application development platform. The newest version is cloud-native, web- and mobile-ready, and includes low-code capability. Domino powers 10 million apps that run the business of more than 15,000 companies globally, including global giants in the automotive, financial, and retail industries.
  • In January 2022, San Francisco-based low-code platform Retool announced that it might expand its presence in India with exclusive offerings as it could see massive traction from IT service providers and startups.
  • Many digital initiatives and development, including low-code platforms, are occurring in India. For instance, in November 2021, Esri India launched ArcGIS Platform-as-a-service (PaaS), which includes maps and location tools for building apps and innovative solutions. With a full range of SDKs, APIs, and low-code options, the platform is expected to reduce time to market and promote creative design, enabling an open location-focused PaaS for software developers, businesses, and organizations that need to bring maps and location services into their products, solutions, and systems.
