Colossal expansion in raw structured and unstructured data and snowballing demand for Big Data analytics act as the major driving factors for global Hadoop market as it delivers cost effective and faster data processing of Big Data analytics over conventional data analysis tools such as Relational Database Management Systems (RDBMS).

Now, distributed computing and Hadoop platform security issues are hindering the growth of this market. Nevertheless, with incessant technological growth these issues can be addressed. Furthermore, gradual lowering operating costs to deliver data management solutions that will in turn augment to the growth of this market.

Hadoop market, on the basis of type, is segmented into software, hardware and services market. Currently, services market is dominating with a market share of about 50 percent of the global Hadoop market owing to growing necessity of data analysis in various organizations.
