Continuous Delivery Market Driving Agile Software Development and Deployment 2026

The rising trend towards digitalization and adoption of DevOps is propelling the growth of the market.

The global Continuous Delivery Market is forecast to reach USD 6.48 Billion by 2026, according to a new report by Reports and Data. The rising trend towards digitalization and the adoption of DevOps will drive the growth of the market. Moreover, the emergence of automation in application deployment will also have a positive impact on the growth of the market.

Continuous distribution provides the developers with a proper feedback loop, which resolves the issues faster. Tools and processes involved keep track of the changes done in the project without being lost. Similarly, tools for automating the provisioning of environment helps in saving time and efforts. It also ensures compliance and security practices from the beginning of the development lifecycle. This benefits the developers in many ways, including better end-to-end visibility to trace the changes & error codes; writing new & quality codes; and faster feedback loops, among others.

 The global information and communications technology (ICT) market registered steady revenue growth in 2020, and market size is expected to increase further over the forecast period. Factors contributing to the global ICT market revenue growth are growing penetration of smart mobile devices such as smartphones, tablets, and smart watches, rapid adoption of state-of-the-art technologies such as AI, machine learning, Internet of Things (IoT), big data analytics, and cloud computing, and rapid digitalization across numerous  industries including the banking & finance, education, healthcare, automotive, oil & gas, agriculture, buildings & construction, and power & energy industries. Increasing accessibility of the Internet across the globe, emergence of the 5G technology, growing need for faster Internet services for rapid data transfer & processing, introduction of advanced Wi-Fi systems, and rising data security and user safety concerns among consumers are some of the other factors expected to drive the ICT market revenue growth.

Continuous delivery is a software development approach that enables frequent and reliable deployment of applications. It emphasizes close collaboration between development and operations teams, breaking down the traditional silos between them.

By implementing continuous delivery practices, developers can provision and configure the required environments easily, allowing them to focus on writing code and delivering new features. Operations teams gain a better understanding of the codebase, which helps them support and maintain the applications more effectively.

The integration of development and operations skill sets in a DevOps team fosters a culture of collaboration, communication, and shared responsibility. This cross-functional team works together throughout the software development lifecycle, from planning and coding to testing, deployment, and monitoring. This collaborative approach reduces friction between teams, improves operational issues, and enables faster innovation.

Continuous delivery enables operations teams to deliver applications more quickly and with greater confidence. By automating the deployment process and adopting robust testing practices, applications can be deployed frequently, allowing for faster feedback and iteration. Real user feedback and data can be collected during the deployment process, enabling teams to make data-driven decisions and iterate on their applications based on actual usage patterns.

This shift towards continuous delivery and DevOps also transforms operations from being seen as a cost center to an innovation center. By automating manual and repetitive tasks, eliminating wasteful processes, and streamlining operations, teams can focus more on strategic initiatives, improving efficiency, and delivering value to the business.

Some of the benefits of continuous delivery include:

  1. Stable and highly available environments: Continuous delivery promotes the use of automated testing and deployment processes, reducing the risk of introducing bugs or breaking production environments. This leads to more stable and highly available applications.
  2. Efficient operations: Continuous delivery eliminates unnecessary waiting times and manual processes, increasing the efficiency of operations. Automated testing, deployment, and monitoring reduce the time and effort required for each release, enabling faster delivery of features and bug fixes.
  3. Faster feedback and iteration: By deploying applications frequently and collecting real user feedback, teams can iterate and improve their software more rapidly. This helps in aligning the application with user needs and business goals.

Further key findings from the report suggest

  • Generally, the pipeline run is triggered by a source code repository. A variation in code triggers a notification to the CD tool, which runs the corresponding pipeline. Also, failure to pass the next stage, which is the build stage indicates a fundamental problem in the configuration of the project.
  • The large-sized organizations account for a larger market share of ~64% in the year 2018, owing to the increasing investments by these firms on continuous delivery and DevOps.
  • The on-premises deployment type accounts for a larger market share of ~59% in the year 2018. On-premises deployment of these software and services ensures the security of the confidential data of the firms. Moreover, information deployed on-premises provide better accessibility and security to the organizations.
  • The solution component accounts for a larger market share of ~55% in the year 2018. The solution segment is further segregated into software and hardware solution. The increasing demand for painless software deployments, with lower risk events that can be performed at any time, will be the major factor contributing to the growth of the solutions segment.
  • The IT & telecommunication industry account for the largest market share of ~21% in the year 2018, attributed to the emergence of advanced technologies like artificial intelligence, IoT, and machine learning. The IT and telecom sector has digitized and offers a unique customer experience to match the shifting customer behaviors. Their investment in end-to-end digital operations has driven the growth of the industry.
  • North America held the largest market share of ~30% in the year 2018, owing to the presence of some of the leading players of the market in the region. Moreover, the region is one of the technologically advanced regions. With the rising application of big data analytics using artificial intelligence and machine learning, the need for seamless delivery of applications has become critical for the players in the region.
