Low-code development platforms are being deployed to enable rapid production and adoption of functional software to meet the unique processes and data needs of various small and medium enterprises and large enterprises.

This has allowed software developers to design and develop tailored systems to cater to the needs of organizations.

Several factors such as a strong ecosystem designed and developed for DevOps and Agile practices, rise in the demand for digitization, and a growing need for quick scalability and customization are driving the adoption of application development software, thereby supporting the market growth.

The increasing spread of the COVID-19 virus has negatively impacted market growth. Lockdown restrictions imposed by various governments have led to a temporary closure of business operations in multiple sectors such as media and entertainment and travel and tourism. Employees in the IT and telecom industry have been directed to adopt the work from home model. This has led to a significant decline in the adoption of technological advancements in the existing business systems. However, with the ease of the lockdown restrictions and resumption of business operations, the market is anticipated to witness significant growth over the forecast period.

The prominent players that dominated the market for application development software globally in 2020 include Oracle Corporation; Salesforce.com Inc.; Zoho Corporation; Fujitsu Ltd.; and HCL Technologies. These players majorly focus on new products, applications, and service launches to enhance their business operations. In June 2021, HCL Technologies announced the launch of Domino.
