Key Market Trends

BFSI Sector Expected to Witness a High Growth Rate

  • The BFSI industry is undergoing a great digital transformation, creating challenges related to cyber insecurity, regulatory mandates, cost reduction, and customer intelligence requiring robust network functions that handle such capabilities. APM (Application portfolio management) has become a very essential and effective strategy in terms of deciding which applications to modernize. It is all about growing application improvement to fulfill evolving business needs. In today's chaotic market, most financial firms look to sourcing as an innovation platform and cost reduction.
  • Major players, such as Capgemini, mutually work with the top 5 global banks to offer complete maintenance, support, and advancements for their VisionPlus implementations. They support the imaging system, offer full infrastructure support to an 800-seat call center running 24×7, manage Unicenter ticketing support for more than 4,000 servers, and manage customized global banking applications for mobile.
  • Financial applications involve applications performing financial transactions, such as online insurance applications, online banking portals, and such, for which security is a prime matter of concern. Cybersecurity is usually taken very seriously by financial services organizations. As per the research from Ocorian, in the United Kingdom, banks are paying GBP 6.7 billion each year to prevent cybercrime activities. Although banks have invested a hefty sum of money in application security measures, still some security challenges remain unaddressed.
  • Moreover, IT, development, & security teams could benefit from a Software-as-a-Service-based (SaaS) approach to application security, enabling much greater flexibility to scale and automate scanning while still enabling quick fixing and delivering fast results. As per FIS, in recent years, four countries have witnessed a twofold or more significant rise in the monetary value of real-time transactions of payments: Australia (231%), Bahrain (311%), the Philippines (482%), and Ghana (222%).​With the rising RTP, the security of transactions has become a major concern for banks. This has heavily increased the demand for total managed mobility security services.
  • The Reserve Bank of India recorded nearly 44 billion digital payments in FY 2021, which is an increase compared to the last three years. Interbank use cases are still rare; however, banks use the technology to simplify their existing systems and remove process bottlenecks. Several mobile application service providers report having consultants and developers prepared to deliver blockchain applications, and providers report cases and experiments. Such factors are initiating the demand for managed mobility application services.
Total Number of Digital Payments

North America Anticipated to Hold a Major Market Share

  • As per the Annual Internet Report by Cisco, the average number of devices and connections per capita across the world is likely to expand to 3.6 by the year 2023. Among the various countries with the highest average of per capita devices and connections by 2023, the U. S. will remain at the very top with an average of 13.6 devices and connections per capita, followed by South Korea & Japan. Furthermore, the 5G penetration in the country also encourages the demand for IoT devices in the future. The sheer focus on deploying 5G by national mobile operators, like AT&T, Sprint, T mobile, and Verizon, has led to significant developments.
  • As per the GSMA, 5G will reach a landmark of around 100 million mobile connections in early 2023 and will become the country's leading mobile network technology by 2025, with over 190 million 5G connections. Additionally, cloud and digital transformation have increased the total cost of a data breach. The overall utilization of mobile platforms, extensive cloud migration, and IoT devices are the drivers increasing the cost. Moreover, the growing potential of data breaches is expected to foster the managed mobile services market as enterprises focus more on IT security.
  • The increased adoption rate of cloud in the United States, owing to the COVID-19 pandemic, is expected to expand the companies' digital transformation, which ultimately leads to the rise in the adoption of managed mobility solutions. Also, the transition toward digital operations in the country is creating new growth opportunities for the managed mobility services market throughout the forecast period.
  • Cybersecurity is one of the major concerns and is growing throughout the country. The cybersecurity incidents in the country are rising at a rapid pace, especially throughout the COVID-19 pandemic period, which is creating the overall need for securely managing digital devices.
  • Furthermore, the market has been witnessing growing investment activities, including mergers, acquisitions, and partnerships. For example, in July 2021, Dataprise, a leading IT managed service provider, declared the acquisition of a provider of mobility managed services Wireless Watchdogs. The addition of Wireless Watchdogs widens Dataprise's end-to-end managed services portfolio. It is anticipated to offer its customers one strategic IT partner to manage their entire technology strategy as well as user experience from mobility and desktop to cybersecurity, infrastructure, and cloud. This acquisition has also expanded Dataprise's footprint in the West Coast region of the United States.
