By Type Analysis

Centralised version control systems (CVCS) segment is dominating the market in 2022

In fiscal year 2022, the centralised version control systems (CVCS) segment is anticipated to record the largest market share. They have been around for a long time and are well-known among developers. The segment was considered as the traditional approach to version control and was widely adopted before the emergence of Distributed Version Control Systems (DVCS) like Git. Many organizations established their workflows and infrastructure around CVCS, making it the default choice for version control. Furthermore, CVCS solutions often have extensive integrations with other development tools, such as issue trackers, project management software, and build systems. These integrations make it easier to manage the development lifecycle and maintain a centralized workflow within the organization.

By Deployment Analysis

On-premises reflecting greater growth prospect during forecast period

In 2022, the on-premises segment held the largest global share in terms of volume and value. Organizations with legacy systems or specific tool chains may have established on-premises version control solutions that integrate with their existing infrastructure. Migrating to a cloud-based solution or adopting a different deployment model could require significant changes and investments in reconfiguring the tool chain and integrations. In addition to this, by hosting version control systems on-premises, organizations can have direct control over the infrastructure, hardware, and software configurations. This level of control can be appealing to companies that have specific IT requirements, customization needs, or restrictions on utilizing cloud-based services.

By Enterprises Size Analysis

Large enterprises segment is leading the global market in 2022

Large enterprises segment is expected to garner the largest revenue in the global market as they typically have extensive codebases, multiple development teams, and complex projects. They require version control systems solutions that can handle large repositories, support concurrent development, and enable efficient collaboration among distributed teams. Version control systems system with robust scalability and performance capabilities are often preferred in such environments.

Additionally, large enterprises often have specific requirements for their version control systems, such as advanced access controls, fine-grained permissions management, audit trails, and integration capabilities with other enterprise systems. Version control systems solutions that cater to these enterprise-grade features can align better with the needs of large organizations. Compliance and security, integration with enterprise tool chain, vendor support & services, and many other benefits are making the segment dominant in the global market.

By End-Use Analysis

IT and telecom divisions segment held largest share of the global revenue in 2022
