The key EMEA Container Technology Market players include Apcera, Chef, Cisco, AWS, CloudFoundry, CoreOS, Docker, ClusterHQ, Hashicorp, Joyent, EMC, Mesosphere, Openstack, Microsoft

The UK dominates the EMEA container technology market in 2016 with a market share of approximately 25% owing to increasing preference towards containerized applications by private enterprises as well as government agencies. In order to realize cost savings and improved economic growth by leveraging the flexibility offered by cloud computing technology, the UK government is engaging in initiatives to enable government-wide adoption of the technology.

EMEA Container Technology Market is estimated to surpass USD 2.4 billion by 2024. Enterprises use containers to enable OS-level virtualization of applications along with their runtime environment. This eliminates the need to attach an OS instance for separate applications which makes deploying containers more cost-effective compared to virtual machines. Enterprises can save more cost while deploying relatively more number of applications using containers. Hence, the technology is experiencing positive growth since its inception and is expected to maintain this growth over the forecast period.

Moreover, as the host OS does not require additional software to run the applications packaged in containers, operational simplicity is enhanced significantly by encapsulating applications inside containers.

The EMEA container technology market is characterized by strategic alliances between the market players to offer better solutions to their customers. With the emergence and proliferation of large number of SMEs in Europe in the past five years, there has been growing adoption of cloud computing technology to virtualize resource-intensive workloads.

This is expected to positively impact the adoption of container technology in the region. Also, increasing need to support microservices architecture in industries such as banking and finance is accelerating the adoption of container solutions in the region. Moreover, government in the region such as in UK is exploring the feasibility of container technology to modernize their IT infrastructure and host and deploy their workloads.

Secure cloud services are in demand in the MEA region owing to high vulnerability towards cybercrimes. This has prompted cloud providers to offer cloud services to the enterprises in the region, thus contributing to their readiness to adopt modern IT infrastructure. According to the Cisco Global Cloud Index 2015-2020, MEA is expected to experience highest growth in data traffic growth by 2020. These factors are expected to largely contribute to the growth of container technology adoption in EMEA during the timeline.

The region is also witnessing strategic collaborations such as distribution agreements among the market players to strengthen their regional presence. For instance, in November 2016, Avnet, one of the leading global technology distributors announced a EMEA distribution agreement with Docker for distributing Docker Datacentre and CS Engine in the UK, Germany, Ireland and France.

Some of the key participants in the EMEA container technology market are Apcera, Chef, Cisco, AWS, CloudFoundry, CoreOS, Docker, ClusterHQ, Hashicorp, Joyent, EMC, Mesosphere, Openstack, Microsoft, RedHat, Rackspace, Sysdig, The Linux Foundation, VMware, Twistlock. The industry is primarily characterized by container technology providers and cloud service providers.
