The global API management market size was valued at USD 4.28 billion in 2023 and is projected to grow from USD 5.42 billion in 2024 to USD 34.17 billion by 2032, exhibiting a CAGR of 25.9% during the forecast (2024-2032). North America accounted for a market value of USD 1.56 billion in 2023. Application Programming Interface (API) management is known as the process of developing, scaling, publishing, and analyzing APIs for organizations. It can be delivered using several approaches including on-premises, cloud, or hybrid models.

API Management helps to control and manage multiple interactions between various applications and platforms. In addition, it helps businesses deliver customer data securely across platforms. The growing demand for real-time data is anticipated to drive the adoption of event-driven APIs. Moreover, the increase in digital transformation is expected to fuel the market growth. Furthermore, key market players are keen on offering innovative solutions through market expansion. For instance,

  • In February 2023, IBM Corporation announced the acquisition of StepZen Inc., a GraphQL server developer, to enhance API management design using less code. GraphQL API is helping businesses in digital transformation.

The COVID-19 pandemic significantly impacted the business operations across the globe. The exponential growth in the adoption of advanced digital solutions during the pandemic supported enterprises in sustaining their businesses. In addition, the pandemic pushed enterprises and decision-makers to quickly implement and adapt to new changes. This propelled the demand for application programming interfaces as it helps in constantly changing new services and absorbing more digital data.

Moreover, the increased adoption of automation bolstered the need to simplify the communication. The integration of APIs eliminates the manual processes and lowers the time in point-to-point integration. During the pandemic, APIs supported remote services in the healthcare sector through telemedicine. They provided secure and real-time communication among the healthcare providers and the remotely located patients. For instance,

  • In November 2020, the IT team of the Chicago Department of Public Health (CDPH) collaborated with MuleSoft Inc. to roll out the COVID-19 vaccine faster. The company’s API, Mulesoft Anypoint Platform, supported real-time data collection, contact tracing, vaccine call center support, and others.

Thus, the pandemic led to a rise in digital transformation, which had a positive impact on the market share.
