Worldwide Development Languages, Environments, and Tools Forecast, 2018–2022

This IDC study provides a worldwide forecast for 2018–2022 for the development languages, environments, and tools market. "IDC projects strong growth for the DLET market with a total market CAGR of 3.6% through 2022. The growth of the DLET market is led by the public cloud segment, which features a 2017–2022 CAGR of 19.3%. By comparison, the on-premises segment of the DLET market shows a 2017–2022 CAGR of 1.9%," said Arnal Dayaratna, research director, Software Development at IDC. "Much of the cloud-based growth in the DLET landscape has a direct relationship to other growing market segments such as container-native applications, microservices-based applications, artificial intelligence, IoT, and conversational applications. IDC expects rapid acceleration in the growth of cloud-native development tools as adoption of containers and functions-as-a-service (FaaS)–based applications increases."
