Application Server Market
Application Server Market

The global Application Server Market is anticipated to grow with an elevated CAGR of around 13% over the forecast period (2022-2028). Application servers provide a framework to build and deploy web applications and offer a variety of services when running such applications. These services include security, transactions, clustering for increased performance, and diagnostic capabilities, among others. These products can also include servers that strictly host web applications. Application servers are used by software developers who are trying to quickly build applications and have them supported by the server environment in which they are deployed.

The growing adoption of the application server can be attributed to the increasing trend of eCommerce and the increasing adoption of smartphones globally. The application servers provide various other functionalities as well such as security, scalability, database management, end-user, traffic management, etc. These additional functionalities are expected to drive the application server market. Furthermore, the increasing incidents of data breaches positively affect the application server market. For instance, Data breaches exposed 4.1 billion records in the first six months of 2019.
