Market Report Description

The Global Managed Services Market size is expected to reach $372.8 billion by 2027, rising at a market growth of 7.7% CAGR during the forecast period.

The practice of outsourcing business administration and management functions to a third party is referred to as managed services. This term isn't limited to IT because managed services can encompass anything from supply chain management to marketing strategy to call center operations.

Managed services assist firms in increasing operational efficiency and lowering operating costs while allowing them to concentrate more effectively on their core capabilities. Managed services help increase overall profitability and improve operational efficiency by ensuring optimal resource distribution and use. Businesses are finding it simpler to react to technology advances because of scalable infrastructure & flexible managed services models. Over the forecast period, all of these factors are expected to fuel the market growth.

To enhance commercial operations, managed services entail outsourcing managerial functions to a third party. Managed services have emerged as a result of the emergence of cloud-based technologies and their technical diffusion. Managed services help firms improve their operational efficiency and lower their operating costs. Over the projected period, the market is expected to rise due to the growing inclination for outsourcing management functions to cloud service providers & managed service providers.

Managed services might be beneficial to teams that don't have the time, expertise, or experience to handle some business processes internally, or who choose to focus their efforts elsewhere. Using an expert to provide a service helps the staff to concentrate on innovation rather than mundane activities. Because the managed service provider is responsible for keeping the service available at all times, companies don't have to worry about outages. A service level agreement (SLA) governs the delivery of the service and support, making it clear when to expect & what to expect it. An in-house staff is frequently juggling numerous duties, whereas an MSP may concentrate on mastering the delivery of a single service. This entails concentrating on the service's health & security, as well as applying patches and upgrades as needed.

COVID-19 Impact Analysis

Businesses are putting a major emphasis on remote working as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic outbreak. There are many companies that are increasingly shifting to cloud services to ensure business continuity amid the coronavirus lockdowns implemented by various governments as part of their efforts to restrict the virus' spread. The majority of businesses have already renewed their contracts with managed cloud service providers with the expectation of cloud migration becoming more widespread and, in some cases, getting traction. Moreover, as part of their attempts to stimulate digital transformation, businesses and organizations were putting a heavy emphasis on integrating the latest technologies, like augmented reality, and machine learning alongside their current IT infrastructure.

Market driving Factors:

Growing Organizational Acceptance of Bring Your Device (BYOD) trend

In today's technology-driven company environment, Bring Your Device (BYOD) is one of the most important components of digital technology and productivity across all sectors. To boost efficiency in the workplace, the BYOD concept allows employees to access and control data via personal devices. Companies that encourage the use of BYOD can save up to USD 350 per year, per team member, according to a report issued by Cisco Systems, Inc. Employees' work accountability and flexibility improve as a result of BYOD, resulting in increased productivity. As a result, enterprises are being advised to integrate BYOD solutions with current systems to build a workforce-friendly workplace. Because of the rising usage of BYOD, the number of intelligent devices in the workplace, like laptops, smartphones, tablets, and other gadgets, has expanded.

Rising adoption of cloud solutions and services

Cloud technology is used to create new customer engagement platforms as well as digital transformation platforms. An almost significant amount of businesses are working in a multi-cloud environment. But, most businesses find it difficult to implement a multi-cloud environment to improve consumer interaction due to a lack of skills and infrastructure. MSPs with DevOps competence and those who can offer consumption-based pricing models have a new opportunity. Various cloud-based solutions and services are gaining traction among enterprises due to its various features and advantages over traditional solutions.

Marketing Restraining Factor:

Improved cost control

The cost of a business service is determined by an organization's requirement for service criticality and availability. The MSP covers the regular costs of an IT department, like as training, equipment, and workers, and bills the employer on a monthly basis. This makes it easy to precisely predict spending each month when budgeting. The managed service can scale to accommodate such eventualities based on future needs and the speed with which the organization's IT maturity grows. The most major benefit is that a company may decide how much to scale based on factors like financing and the CIO's strategic vision. IT Service disruptions and unforeseen circumstances can also be avoided, reducing the danger of further losses.
