Projected Growth and Key Drivers of the Managed Services Market (2021-2026)

The managed services market, which includes Managed Security Service Providers (MSSPs) and Managed Service Providers (MSPs), was valued at USD 242.9 billion in 2021. It is projected to reach USD 354.8 billion over the next five years, registering a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 7.9%.

Projected Growth and Key Drivers of the Managed Services Market (2021-2026)

Major factors driving the growth of the managed services market include:

  1. Lack of skilled IT professionals: This has led to an increased demand for managed services, as these providers have the necessary expertise to manage complex IT infrastructures.
  2. Rise in demand for secure IT infrastructure during the COVID-19 pandemic: The shift to remote work has increased the need for secure IT infrastructure, leading to a surge in demand for managed services.
  3. Cost and risk reduction: Managed services can help businesses reduce costs and mitigate risks associated with IT operations.
  4. Requirements for regulatory compliance and security: Managed services providers can help businesses meet regulatory requirements and enhance their security posture.

Regarding regional growth, the Asia Pacific (APAC) region is expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. This growth is driven by the adoption of advanced technologies like cloud, AI, ML, and IoT and the need for improved productivity in a highly competitive market.

In terms of service type, the managed mobility segment is expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. This growth is driven by the rising demand for the Bring Your Device (BYOD) trend among businesses, which enhances organizational productivity.

Despite the growth, the managed services market faces challenges such as privacy and data security concerns, a lack of sales and marketing staff, and cybersecurity threats.
