Containerization has been widely adopted in recent years with 19% of organizations claiming it plays a strategic role.
The top reasons for this adoption are:
- Application portability/compatibility across environments
- Easier application upgrades/maintenance/lifecycle management
- Simpler/more flexible CI/CD/DevOps
- Cost savings (more efficient hardware resource utilization)
As of 2021, 42% of organizations surveyed planned to integrate containers within 18 months or less.
And just 11% of organizations have no plans to pivot towards containerization.
As such, the global container technology market is forecasted to grow at a CAGR of 34.4% through 2027.
