Custom Software Development Market Growth & Trends

The global custom software development market size is expected to reach USD 146.18 billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of 22.4% from 2023 to 2030, according to a new study conducted by Grand View Research, Inc. Today's organizations leverage customized solutions to transform their business by enhancing existing applications and developing new ones. Several industries and individuals are adopting custom software platforms due to the growing need for industry-specific applications, the increasing popularity of flexible workplaces, and the emergence of low-code development platforms.

Additionally, market growth is fueled by increasing reliance on chatbots, robotic process automation, and other emerging technologies to enhance the efficiency of custom software. Platform as a Service (PaaS) and open-source solutions are driving demand for custom software for cost-effectiveness and ease of upgrading, along with blockchain technologies to ensure enhanced levels of the COVID-19 pandemic, demonstrated the potential of a remote workforce. Considering the size of the organization and the remote workforce, a company started implementing custom software to walk the line between cost reduction and a remote workforce.

Enterprises rely more on custom software to automate business operations and scale up their business applications using the agile development process. Adapting to evolving business processes, increased workloads, and new integrations is easy with agile software development. Vendors are collaborating to introduce comprehensive enterprise agility solutions to clients to modernize their work environments. For instance, in October 2022, Accenture plc, a custom software developer, partnered with Atlassian Corporation, a software company, to implement Atlassian Corporation’s software tools to enhance enterprise agility. Businesses are investing heavily in custom software to customize their businesses, which leads to significant growth of the market.

Due to the rapid growth of the software market, new technological solutions have become increasingly important to address problems immediately . The development of custom software can now be more easily accomplished due to software development using low-code platforms. Enterprise systems and application architecture are integral to enterprises' processes and lifecycles. Low-code software development enables companies to create working solutions and integrate them with greater speed and agility, improving user experiences, automating processes, and upgrading key systems. Due to their low cost, companies can prototype, build, or scale applications by using their scripts, codes and integrations without developing complex infrastructure.

A platform as a service enables custom software developers to create software without having to maintain the underlying infrastructure. Furthermore, Companies provide Platform as a Service(PaaS) in pay-per-use options while reducing development costs and time. In view of the benefits listed above, many companies are collaborating with PaaS providers. For instance, in March 2022, OpenText, enterprise information management company, announced the launch of its OpenText core content on Google Cloud. The OpenText solution would enhance user experience, utilizing Google cloud capabilities and a secure software supply chain. OpenText would benefit from this partnership by getting access to cloud-based content services. Increasing use of the platform as a service is expected within enterprises in order to enable streamlined, secure, and governed data access for entire enterprises, as well as offering customers more cloud-based content services.
