Market Report Description

The Global Graph Database Market size is expected to reach $8.1 billion by 2028, rising at a Market growth of 22.2% CAGR during the forecast period.

A graph database is a single-purpose, specialized platform for building and manipulating graphs. Another often used word for a graph database is graph analytics, which refers to the process of analyzing data in a graph style with data points acting as relationships and nodes acting as edges. A database that can serve graph formats is required for graph analytics. It can be a specialized graph database or a convergent database that supports several data types, including graphs.

Additionally, a graph database is a database that represents and stores data using graph layouts for semantic queries with edges, nodes, and properties. The graph is an important notion in the system (or relationship or edge). In addition, the graph connects the store's data items to a set of edges and nodes, with the edges indicating the nodes' relationships. The relationship enables data in the storage to be immediately connected and, in many circumstances, retrieved in a single operation. The connections between data are prioritized in graph databases. Because relationships are preserved in the database indefinitely, querying them is easy. Graph databases can easily depict connections and make them helpful for material that is extremely interconnected.

Graph databases are often referred to as NoSQL databases. Graph databases are identical to conventional network model databases and also represent general graphs, however, network-model databases function at a low level of abstraction and dearth of straightforward traversal through a chain of edges. Graph databases have a variety of storing mechanisms. In a graph database, relationships are first-class citizens that can be directed, labeled, and given properties. Several graph databases rely on a SQL engine and use a table to store the graph data. Others store data in a key-value store or a document-oriented database, making them fundamentally NoSQL. However, a table is a logical element, which adds another layer of abstraction among the graph database management system, the graph database, and the physical devices on which the data is stored.

COVID-19 Impact Analysis

The COVID-19 outbreak caused a significant downfall to various economies all over the world. The outbreak of the novel coronavirus slowed down numerous businesses globally. In addition, due to the rapid spread of the infection, governments all over the world were forced to impose countrywide lockdowns. Due to the travel restrictions under the lockdown, the supply chain of various goods, as well as intermediate goods, was significantly disrupted. Moreover, the lockdown also caused a considerable hindrance to various manufacturing facilities worldwide. In addition, the COVID–19 outbreak exposed flaws in business models throughout various verticals, it also provided various chances for businesses to expand and digitalize beyond geographies as the use and incorporation of technologies like cloud, analytics, AI, IoT, and blockchain surged throughout the lockdown time.

Market Growth Factors

Rising demand for solutions with the ability to process low-latency queries

Graph database services and tools are widely being utilized all over the world, to the extent that several legacy database providers are attempting to integrate graph database schemas into their prevailing relational database infrastructures. While the strategy might appear to save money in theory, it might actually slow down and degrade the performance of queries run against the database. A graph database is changing traditional brick-and-mortar businesses into digital business powerhouses in terms of digital business activities. Companies face issues when it comes to storing large amounts of connected data in the database that isn't appropriate for the task at hand.

The advent of open knowledge networks

Knowledge networks must have datasets, methods, and documentation to ensure accessibility across applications, support knowledge-intensive applications, and interlink numerous disciplines to create a cross-domain knowledge network. Biometrics, home environment, patient health history, and real-time behavior are all required for applications such as senior patient care and monitoring. In addition to a personalized knowledge graph for healthcare, knowledge networks can interconnect multimodal cross-domain data and information collected from several sources. Certain knowledge graphs in this information network are still proprietary, and use by universities or researchers is usually prohibitively expensive.

Market Restraining Factors

Complex programming and standardization

While graph databases, technically, are NoSQL databases, they must run on a single server in practice because they cannot be distributed across a low-cost cluster. This is what causes a network's performance to rapidly deteriorate. Another potential disadvantage is that developers must write their queries in Java because there is no SQL to retrieve data from graph databases, necessitating the hiring of expensive programmers. Alternatively, developers can use SparcQL or one of the other query languages developed in order to support graph databases, but this would necessitate learning a new skill. As a result, graph database systems suffer from a lack of standardization and programming ease. There are visualization tools for graph databases, although they are still in the early stages of development.

Graph Database Market Share and Industry Analysis Report 2021

Type Outlook

Based on Type, the Market is segmented into Labeled Property Graph and Resource Description Framework. In 2021, the Resource Description Framework segment procured a substantial revenue share of the graph database Market . Each update of information is represented by a distinct node in an RDF graph model. In an RDF model, the user must create a separate node that connects to the real person node. An RDF graph model, in particular, is made up of arcs and nodes. A node for the object, a node for the subject, and an arc for the predicate represent an RDF graph notation or a statement. A node can be left blank, be literal, or have a URI associated with it. A URI can also be used to identify an arc. There are two types of literal for nodes viz. plain, or untyped, and typed. A lexical form and, if desired, a language tag is included in a simple literal. A typed literal is a string that contains a URI that defines a certain datatype. When the data does not have a URI, a blank node can be used to appropriately depict the status of the data.

Vertical Outlook

Based on Vertical, the Market is segmented into BFSI, Telecom & IT, Manufacturing & Automotive, Retail & Ecommerce, Government & Public Sector, Healthcare & Life Sciences, Media & Entertainment, Energy & Utilities, Travel & Hospitality, Transportation & Logistics, and Others.
