Data Lakes Market Report 2021 – Global Forecast to 2026 –

DUBLIN–()–The “Data Lakes Market – Growth, Trends, COVID-19 Impact, and Forecasts (2021 – 2026)” report has been added to’s offering.

The Data Lakes Market was valued at USD 3.74 billion in 2020 and is expected to reach USD 17.60 billion by 2026, at a CAGR of 29.9% over the forecast period 2021 – 2026.

Data lakes have become an economical option for many companies rather than an option for data warehousing. Data warehousing involves additional computing of data before entering the warehouse, unlike data lakes. The cost of maintaining a data lake is lower than a data lake owing to the number of operations and space involved in building the database for warehouses.

  • The speed of data retrieval is better for data lakes compared to data warehouses. According to O’Reilly Data Scientist Salary Survey, one-third of the data scientists spend time for doing basic operations such as necessary extraction/transformation/load (ETL), data cleaning, and basic data exploration rather than real analytics or data modeling which reduces the efficiency of the process. The growing use of IoT in many offices and informal spaces has further emphasized in need for data lakes for quicker and efficient manipulation of data.
  • The adoption of IoT device is taking place at a rapid pace. Government initiatives across the globe like building smart cities are also supporting their deployment. The proliferation of Data due to the Adoption of IoT is driving the market growth for data lakes market.
  • The businesses today are inclined to data-driven decisions. The rise in digitalization is generating an enormous amount of data with the organizations Data lakes have emerged as a practical solution to exponentially increasing data as companies need efficient and advanced data analytical capabilities. The features of data lakes of processing data on the cloud are fueling its market growth.
  • Whereas, the slow onboarding and data integration on data lakes is restricting market growth to an extent.

Key Market Trends

Banking Sector is Expected to Grow Significantly

  • Banks have been increasing the use of data lakes to integrate data across various domains to create a central database. Australia and New Zealand Banking Group (ANZ) has been implementing a project to aggregate all the data ponds across its domains to create a central data lake for the banking operations which will allow the bank to shift from the typically used data warehouse architecture.
  • Banks are investing in data engineers to provide more responsive data lakes to tackle consumer requirements and also been trying to increase the utility of data for on the go solutions. State Bank of India (SBI) has been providing data lakes, apart from the typically used data warehouse, to bank executives, deputy managing director, and chief information to deliver on the go analytics.
  • The deployment of data lakes in banking sector breaks down the number of silos. Storing data in a centrally managed infrastructure like Apache Hadoop-based data lake infrastructure helps cut down the number of information silos in an organization making data accessible to users across the enterprise.

North America is Expected to have High Adoption for Data Lakes

  • According to Capgemini, more than 60% of the financial institutions in the United States believe that big data analytics offers a substantial competitive advantage over the competitors and more than 90% of the companies believe that the big data initiatives determine the chance for success in the future.
  • Data Lakes are needed for the use of Smart Meter applications. In Canada, BC Hydro uses an EMC data lake for analyzing data aggregated by various smart meters. The data then enables detecting discrepancies in the system. This has aided in achieving savings of 75% of the electricity due to theft.
  • The number of Smart Meters in the region have also been growing in usage. Owing to an increase in the usage of smart meters, huge amount of data is being generated, which needs the use of Data Lakes. According to U.S Energy Information Administration, a total of over 90 million smart meters is expected to be installed in the country by the year 2020.

Competitive Landscape

The market landscape is defined by established technologies and software providers who have a strong brand image, geographic footprint, and customer base. Companies, such as Amazon and Microsoft, which hold a significant share of the cloud space, have a competitive edge over the existing market players, due to the consumer preference for cloud-delivered solutions and services.
