Database management system market size worldwide 2017-2019

The database management system (DBMS) revenue grew to 46 billion U.S. dollars in 2019, an increase of 18.2 percent from the previous year. Cloud DBMS accounted for the majority of the overall market growth, as database systems are migrating to cloud platforms.

Database market

The database market consists of paid database software such as Oracle and Microsoft SQL Server, as well as free, open-source software options like PostgreSQL and MongolDB. Database Management Systems (DBMSs) provide a platform through which developers can organize, update, and control large databases, with products like Oracle, MySQL, and Microsoft SQL Server being the most widely used in the market.

Database management software

Knowledge of the programming languages related to these databases is becoming an increasingly important asset for software developers around the world, and database management skills such as MongoDB and Elasticsearch are seen as highly desirable. In addition to providing developers with the tools needed to operate databases, DBMS are also integral to the way that consumers access information through applications, which further illustrates the importance of the software.
