Market Overview

The synthetic monitoring market was valued at USD 838.5 million in 2020, and it is expected to reach USD 1944.705 million by 2026, registering a CAGR of 15.2% over the forecast period 2021 - 2026.

  • Active monitoring is essential in the complex infrastructure that many IT teams are managing, where multiple networks, providers, and applications can all consume IT time and resources. Synthetic monitoring, therefore, helps troubleshoot in these cases, as it shows IT teams what users are seeing, in a continuous way.
  • Slower page response time leads to an increase in page abandonment, with around 40% of users stating that they abandon a page if it does not load within three seconds. For online retail giants, like Amazon, a similar delay would be catastrophic, resulting in estimated lost sales of USD 1.6 billion per year.
  • Google recently calculated that by slowing down the search results by just four-tenths of a second, it could lose eight million searches in a day, which would translate into a substantial reduction in revenues from online advertisements, due to reduced presence.

Scope of the Report

Synthetic monitoring tools enable an end-to-end view of a system's behavior. The major force driving this market is the growing need for monitoring and management of numerous complicated applications, with the increasing need for DevOps. In addition, the growing need for deployment of an enterprise application on third-party platforms with enhanced monitoring solutions helps to boost the adoption of synthetic monitoring solutions.

Key Market Trends

IT and Telecommunications is Expected to Show Significant Growth

  • Effective monitoring is the key factor governing the on-premise, cloud, or hybrid infrastructure. Relying on traditional IT monitoring tools, which are not built for complex infrastructure landscape, is increasingly becoming difficult for IT managers. These are actively shifting toward synthetic monitoring solutions.
  • Active monitoring has significant importance in the complex infrastructure that many IT teams are managing, where multiple networks, providers, and applications can all consume IT time and resources. Synthetic monitoring, therefore, helps troubleshoot in these cases, as it shows IT teams what users see, in a continuous way.
  • Modernizing the services for the IT and telecom sector is an evolved approach through API management, for bridging the gap between traditional, on-premise, and cloud-based IT systems. It increases operational efficiency and effectiveness, consolidating the way data is captured, analyzed, and shared across the enterprises, along with an improved experience.
Synthetic Monitoring Market Trends

North America Accounted for a Significant Share

  • The market in North America is increasing, due to the critical need for pro-active monitoring of increasing complex applications and rising adoption of cloud-based application and DevOps application.
  • In North America, consumers are increasingly preferring online platform for varied services, even in the conventional markets, because of which, companies are focusing on improving their application management services.
  • In addition to this, owing to rise in DevOps, the region also marks a significant demand for SaaS-based applications. According to the Cisco Global Cloud Index Report, North America is expected to account for 48% of all large-scale public cloud data centers called hyperscale data centers across the world by 2021.
  • IBM recently launched the first financial services-ready public cloud of the world in collaboration with Bank of America. Under the agreement Bank of America will be a committed collaborator to use the platform and host key applications on IBM’s public cloud, to support its 66 million banking customers.
