The database monitoring software market size was valued at USD 1.79 billion in 2022 and is projected to grow from USD 2.05 billion in 2023 to USD 5.61 billion by 2030, exhibiting a CAGR of 15.5% during the forecast period. North America dominated the global market with a share of 40.78% in 2022.

Database monitoring allows users to gather essential database performance metrics, which help optimize and improve the processes of the database. The use of database monitoring tools allows users to see how data is made available, used, and verified in an organization’s databases as well as their health, availability, and reliability. Database vendors integrate monitoring tools into their products to assist.

The scope includes various software and services offered by leading players such as SolarWinds Worldwide, LLC, Heroix Corporation, Quest Software Inc., and others. These leading players are offering various products: database performance analyzer by SolarWinds, Datadog Database Monitoring by Datadog, SQL Server Monitoring offered by Spiceworks, and Data Applications Manager by ManageEngine. Also, data server monitoring tools are offered by Site24x7, remote data management solutions by Atera, and SQL Power Database Tools performance metrics are offered by Quest Software Inc.

Furthermore, these players are developing advanced technology such as AI, cloud, and machine learning-based monitoring tools. For instance,

  • April 2022: Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) introduced the TCS ADD suite intuitive and agile risk-based monitoring solution for healthcare and clinical trials. It enables compliance with regulatory standards, helps in decision-making, and improves study efficiency. TCS ADD suite enables Contract Research Organizations and biopharmaceutical companies to identify risks with the help of advanced statistical algorithms.

Rising Adoption of Database Software in Healthcare amid COVID-19 Aided Market Growth

The impact of COVID-19 pandemic positively impacted the global market during the projected period. This is accredited to the significant speed in the adoption of online social media platforms and surge in internet users during the pandemic.

Despite variations in software indices owing to budget restrictions, shutdowns, and stay-at-home orders across the globe, most chosen indexes have returned to pre-COVID-19 levels. Database monitoring software firms saw a surge in demand from healthcare, transportation, logistics, and consumer staples during the pandemic. The retail, energy, and hotel industries, on the other hand, saw a considerable drop in product demand.

Demand and usage was projected to rise in the mid to long term for software firms with significant profit margins and recurring income. Due to the implications of COVID-19, firms are reprioritizing automated database monitoring and cloud adoption, according to Redgate's annual state of database monitoring software report.

As IT infrastructures become increasingly diversified, the application's complexity grows exponentially. Database monitoring helps IT fix issues before affecting end users in such complex heterogeneous setups.

  • According to a Redgate Software survey conducted in 2020, 79% of database professionals employed either in-house or paid monitoring tools, which is a 10% increase over the previous year. In addition, 86% of respondents said they were happy with paid monitoring solutions, up by 18% from the previous year.

As a result, the market share is likely to expand in future.

Changing Landscape of Database Infrastructure to Propel the Market Growth

Database infrastructure is used to maintain and manage large amounts of data using several hardware and software components. Database monitoring remains one of the top tasks of Database Administrators (DBAs) despite all of these changes, and it continues to influence growth depending on how DBAs handle their roles.

Rapid use of cloud technology and mixed servers aids the market growth rate. IT firms must keep historical databases on-premises and in the cloud. Complex database difficulties result from such a hybrid server setup. Monitoring software closely monitors databases in such complicated database structures. This software has several benefits, such as minimizing outages & slowdowns of important components, helping to diagnose problems quickly, and reducing IT infrastructure expenses. It also aids in the reduction of breakdown costs and the avoidance of revenue loss caused by outages.


Rise in Amount of Data Generated by Industries to Accelerate Demand for Database Monitoring Tool

Rising data generation in several industries, such as BFSI, IT & telecom, and the growing Internet of Things (IoT), created a massive demand for database monitoring software. Besides, the introduction of customer-interface applications and the deployment of cloud computing technologies in small and large industries are also surging the demand for database software. Also, an increase in the amount of data with the surge in internet penetration aids market growth. According to Cisco Systems Inc. Report in 2020, the data traffic per month reached 35.5 GB per month in 2021 and is rapidly growing. Such an increase in data traffic and data generation is anticipated to propel the market growth.

However, database performance issues account for almost 50% of the issues in applications as most of the data is stored. An installation of this software helps to eliminate downtime and optimize usage and performance. The software can also aid businesses in ensuring a better user experience and avoiding losses in revenue. The database monitoring tool can also continuously monitor resource usage such as disk space, CPU, I/O, and memory capacity. It also constantly tracks database performance, connectivity, and security. Thus, companies are installing monitoring software to avoid database performance-related issues.


Laws and Regulations Associated with Software Development to Hamper Market Growth

The rising number of strict rules, laws, and regulations regarding software installation and development is expected to hinder market growth. Several laws include Intellectual Property (IPR) acts limiting software companies' expansion overseas. Some countries do not allow software commercial deployment and distribution for any open-source and paid database software and tools.

Further, in Europe, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) has been mandated, effective since May 2018. Also, as per recent studies, approximately 60% of technology companies need to comply with the GDPR laws in Europe. This restricts innovations, hindering market growth to some extent.
