Market Synopsis

Cloud Software Snitching Opportunities from the On-premises Software Segment

In 2017, on-premises software for algorithmic trading ran the show by acquiring the majority of the market share and a higher market value. Initially, on-premise software was the only source an organization could procure such applications. However, the introduction and acceptance of the cloud concept opened new doors of opportunity not only for algorithmic trading but across all the end-use application sectors.

When compared to traditional on-premise counterparts, these applications require less infrastructure and provide faster processing. Besides all the aforementioned merits, cost-effectiveness is the biggest driver of cloud algorithmic trading, as it allows the company to extract more profits with better flexibility and scalability. All of these advantages favor cloud-based algorithmic trading, which is expected to outperform on-premise algorithmic trading in the coming years.

A Boom in Cryptocurrency Brought New Energy to Cryptocurrency Algorithmic Trading

Algorithmic trading for the stock market by far leads the overall segment in terms of market value and is expected to continue its good run in the coming year. Rising financial literacy attracts more people to invest in the stock market. This opened a new window of opportunity for software firms to concentrate and develop algorithmic trading tools for the stock market, considering its nuances and dynamics.

Aside from stock market commodities, consumer goods such as metals, oil, and gas account for a sizable portion of the overall market. Forex and bonds are expected to grow at a moderate pace. However, the sudden exponential growth in cryptocurrency trading drew several software companies to develop cryptocurrency trading applications. Consequently, cryptocurrency is expected to emerge as the fastest-growing segment in terms of market value throughout the forecast period from 2018 to 2026.

North America is followed by Europe in close quarters. Open economies in European countries allow for facilitated trade and create more opportunities for algorithmic trading to flourish. Asia Pacific is estimated to be the fastest-growing market, as major stock exchanges in this region are accepting new trading forms.
