Market Insight- Global Integration & Orchestration Middleware Market
The integration and orchestration middleware is comprised of software and tools to exchange and integrate business transactions between the enterprises. It is also used to integrate applications by handling transformation and normalization to ensure the correct information is sent or received through the network, transfer files inside and outside the organization, detect events and automatically pass them to applications, people and systems and also ensure a secure and high speed delivery of the file over the network. Integration middleware is the software installed on cloud or on premise to integrate applications. Furthermore, business-to-business middleware is used to exchange business transactions between the enterprises.
The global Integration & Orchestration Middleware Market was estimated to account for US$ 10,836.1 Mn in terms of value in 2019 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 7.1%.
Market Dynamics- Drivers
- Significant growth of API management is expected to drive growth of the global integration & orchestration middleware market during the forecast period
Increasing use of digital channels and media combined with growing adoption of Internet of Things (IoT) by end users has supported the market growth for API management. Application Programing Interface (API) is the foundation for digital business. API management facilitates to manage, develop, and analyze API in the secure and scalable environment. Furthermore, increasing demand for API analytics, API security, and API governance are other factors driving the market growth. Moreover, growing adoption of mobile devices depends upon rich and complex APIs, which helps in providing outstanding mobile interaction to the consumers. Therefore, these factors are expected to drive the global integration & orchestration middleware market growth during the forecast period.
- Emergence of cloud computing network is expected to propel the global integration & orchestration middleware market growth over the forecast period
Previously, the conventional middleware technologies were large, monolithic tools that were installed on physical servers in the datacenter. However, modern middleware tools are lighter in nature and deployed on the cloud environment, in order to ensure scalability and flexibility in their operation. PaaS (Platform as a Service) facilitates developers to build and maintain applications without facing many infrastructure related challenges and expenses. Thus, these factors are expected to support the global integration & orchestration middleware market growth in the near future.
North America region dominated the global Integration & Orchestration Middleware Market in 2019, accounting for 37.1% share in terms of volume, followed by Europe and Asia Pacific, respectively.

Market Dynamics- Restraints
- Disruptive impact of cloud adoption on traditional market is expected to restrain growth of the global integration & orchestration middleware market during the forecast period
The evolution of cloud in the middleware market has shrunken the opportunity for the conventional middleware. There are a number of limitations in adoption in cloud architecture in the integration and orchestration of the middleware such as interoperability between the applications, low impact Meta data challenges, and orchestration complexities. Moreover, growing digitization combined with adoption of mobile and IoT applications requires high level of integration of different applications for proper flow of information. However, data mapping complexity, API limitations, data governance integrity, and security vulnerabilities are expected to restrain the market during the forecast period.
- Growing demand for end-to-end QOS support is expected to hinder the global integration & orchestration middle market growth over the forecast period
The dynamics end-to-end changes in application development and environmental conditions require more robust and flexible infrastructural components that can provide end-to-end QOS support. Improvements in the current level of middleware QOS and better control over the additional middleware services to coordinate the hardware and software effectively is the need of the hour. Moreover, application integration requires different levels of QOS and multiple QOS properties under a variety of environmental conditions, which in turn, is expected hinder the global integration and orchestration middleware market growth over the forecast period.
- Large scale distribution of applications is expected to present major growth opportunities
Large scale distribution of applications and services demand high level of integration and orchestration of the information among different applications deploying on cloud, mobile and other devices. This creates an opportunity for innovation among the vendors so that easy integration and orchestration occur across different deployment options such as cloud, on premise, hybrid etc. There is an opportunity for vendors to provide innovative solutions to promote large scale distribution with effective and high level integration and orchestration techniques.
- Integrated machine learning is expected to provide significant growth opportunities in the near future
Integrated machine learning is expected to both supplement and replace the middleware environment. Supervised Machine learning techniques such as artificial neural networks and support vector machines are the approaches to address the issues such as time complexity and development complexity of the enterprise Distributed Real Time and Embedded Publish/Subscribe middleware. These techniques provide reduced time complexity, low latency, and reduced development complexity. This technology can provide major growth opportunities in the global integration and orchestration middleware market.
- Advent of micro services
Advent of micro services in API-centered architecture is a major trend in the market. These are independent services and ensure much faster deployment of the applications. Previously, service-oriented architecture, Enterprise Service Bus and web services were used to the monolithic large middleware systems more flexible and scalable. However, this SOA approach in the development of the middleware has evolved into even more agile and web-centric breed of middleware-“Micro services”.
Containerization is one of the recent trends in the market that is driving the global integration & orchestration middleware market. They isolate application runtime environments from the infrastructure, thereby making the application more consistent, reliable, portable and quick to develop. Moreover, they offer greater portability, consistency, and dependability to the applications are they are shifted between different platforms and solutions in their lifecycle.
Key companies operating in the global integration & orchestration market are TIBCO Software Inc., OpenText Corporation, Axway, Infor, SPS Commerce, Inc., Covisint, Microsoft Corporation, IBM Corporation, SWIFT, and Oracle Corporation.
- Key companies in the market are focused on product launches, in order to gain competitive edge in the market. For instance, in June 2016, Microsoft launched Block chain Middleware to help companies move between various Block chain platform and tools running on its Azure Cloud.
- Major market players are involved in mergers and acquisitions, in order to enhance their market presence. For instance, in June 2016, Infor acquired Predictix, a provider of cloud-native, predictive and machine learning solutions for retailers.
