The Mobile DevOps Engineering landscape is experiencing a seismic shift, as validated by the ‘DevOps Engineer’ standing as the most sought-after job title in 2021. As this domain intensifies, the previously $7 billion market of 2021 is predicted to flourish, potentially reaching $51 billion by 2030.
Recent data in 2022 underscores a burgeoning market. A surge of 11% in app downloads and an amplified mobile ad spend of 14% substantiates this claim. As industry demands soar, recruiters increasingly covet DevOps skills (35.55%) and mobile development abilities (23.37%). DevOps engineer roles are anticipated to grow 21% by 2028, suggesting a promising landscape.
The Mobile DevOps Engineering role is garnering unprecedented attention. To meet growing consumer expectations, companies are investing in shortened build, test, and release times. With mobile turning into a primary revenue source, businesses face mounting pressures for rapid deployment and flawless releases. New stressors have elevated the necessity for this role.
As companies transition towards mobile-centric models, they also grapple with cybersecurity threats, with around 81% of mobile apps vulnerable to attacks. This threat landscape is driving growth in the DevSecOps market, projected to reach $23.16 billion by 2029. Concurrently, the dependency on DevOps tools, especially CI/CD, is growing.
