Analysis and prediction of Middleware Market in 2005

I. Analysis of the current situation of Middleware Market

since its birth in the 1990s, middleware technology has developed rapidly, and the market performance is also in full swing. Especially in the past three years, from the world to China, the industrialization of middleware has developed rapidly. Middleware software has been listed as three basic software together with operating system and database; China's software industry has expanded from application software development to the field of basic software, and China's middleware software market is also developing rapidly and healthily in the right direction. At present, China's middleware market has formed two echelons. The first echelon is composed of BEA, IBM and dongfangtong technology, which together occupy more than 70% of the domestic market share; The second tier includes foreign manufacturers Microsoft, Oracle, Sybase, sun, Tibco, Iona, etc., as well as domestic manufacturers Kingdee, Zhongchuang, Zhongguancun Technology, click technology, etc., and a number of domestic universities and research institutions also belong to the second tier. The second tier currently has a market share of nearly 30% in the domestic market

since 1996, China's middleware market has entered an all-round and normal development after the initial years of gestation. In 2003, the total sales volume of China's middleware software market reached 535million yuan, an increase of 110million yuan over 2002, with a growth rate of 25.9%, with a rapid growth rate. In the past three years, the growth rate of China's middleware software market has shown an upward trend, which shows that China's middleware software market is gradually growing and growing, and is in the growth stage of rapid growth. China's middleware software industry has begun to enter the stage of scale development

in the first three quarters of 2004, Kyoto University, Japan, together with auto parts suppliers, also developed a new light and high-strength material cellulose nanofiber extracted from wood pulp. The total sales volume of China's middleware software market reached 485million yuan, an increase of 35.1% over the same period in 2003. It not only maintained a continuous growth trend, but also continued to rise, The market development form is very good. The middleware software market in China is growing steadily and rapidly. At present, the Chinese middleware software market mainly has the following characteristics:

1 Rapid market growth

in recent years, China's middleware software market is developing rapidly and healthily in the right direction. In the first three quarters of 2004, the total sales volume of China's middleware software market reached 485million yuan, an increase of 35.1% over the same period in 2003; It is estimated that the total sales volume of China's middleware software market in 2004 is expected to reach 700million yuan, which not only maintains a continuous growth trend, but also the annual growth rate continues to rise, and the market development form is very good. China's middleware software market is showing a steady growth trend, the market is in a rapid growth stage, and the middleware software industry has begun to enter the stage of scale development

2. The competition pattern is becoming increasingly clear

although the Chinese middleware software market has not been formed for a long time, the market development space is very broad. Many manufacturers have paid attention to this field, and the competition among manufacturers is becoming increasingly fierce. After several years of market baptism, China's middleware software market formed a "Two Echelon" competition pattern in 2004: the first echelon is composed of BEA, IBM and dongfangtong technology, which together occupy more than 70% of the domestic market share; The second tier includes foreign manufacturers Microsoft, Oracle, Sybase, sun, Tibco, Iona, etc., as well as domestic manufacturers Kingdee, Zhongchuang, Zhongguancun Technology, click technology, etc., and a number of domestic universities and research institutions also belong to the second tier. At present, the market share of the second tier in the domestic market has been close, thus reducing fuel consumption and emissions by 30%

3. The difference between domestic and foreign technical level is narrowed

the starting time of domestic research in the field of middleware technology is basically the same as that abroad. Domestic manufacturers and foreign manufacturers are basically at the same starting line in terms of technical level. The gap between domestic middleware software and international advanced products is not very large, and some are close to the international leading level. Many domestic universities and research institutes have also joined the research and development of middleware software. The "industry university research" model provides a way out for the development of domestic middleware technology. At present, China has a relatively complete product line of domestic middleware software, and the gap between domestic middleware software and foreign products in market share is narrowing day by day, which also shows that the technology gap is getting smaller and smaller

4. Service has become a hot spot of competition

middleware 7.2 inspection project. The needs of software users show that professional service is an important standard to measure manufacturers and products. The requirements of middleware software applications are high, and services will inevitably become an indispensable part of user needs. Therefore, service has become a powerful competitive means for manufacturers to compete for users, and it is also the main feature of manufacturers' competition. It will become the hot spot of manufacturers' competition in the future

5. The government market has become a focus industry. The application of middleware software first started and developed in the financial and telecommunications industries. Government departments are a major industry in the application of middleware software at present and in the future. The accelerating pace of government informatization construction drives the demand for informatization procurement. The huge demand for e-government construction brings a very broad market prospect for the development of middleware industry. The field of E-government has attracted great attention of middleware software manufacturers

II. Prediction and outlook of China's middleware software market in the future

middleware software is a new software technology that provides an operation and development environment for application software. In recent years, the development situation of middleware software industrialization is gratifying, and the prospect is also very promising. It is expected that China's middleware software market will grow at an average annual compound growth rate of 30.7%, and the market scale will increase from 535 million yuan in 2003 to 2.043 billion yuan in 2008. The market will gradually mature. CCID consultants predict that the Chinese middleware software market will have the following development trends in the next few years:

1 Software component technology is a cross century development trend of software technology. Its purpose is to fundamentally improve the efficiency and quality of software production and improve the success power of developing large-scale software systems, especially commercial systems. Software component points out a feasible way to realize the dream of reusing software, and middleware software is a form of component software. Middleware software abstracts the typical application mode, and application software manufacturers can develop it based on the standard form, which makes software component possible and accelerates the process of software reuse. Therefore, middleware software is in line with the internal law of software development, and software component will become the development trend of middleware software

2. Industry middleware will become the main direction

in recent years, the development idea of abstracting and publicizing middleware technology from application software has constantly spawned new software levels. Industry middleware is considered to be the latest and most promising layer in the differentiation of middleware levels. The characteristic of industry middleware is to build on the traditional definition of middleware, and then build a software level for different business systems. This level is an abstract public part from enterprise management, finance, communication, e-government and other application software. In short, industry middleware is "middleware + application components"

for the traditionally defined middleware, the industry middleware is personalized, which is determined by the differences of business systems; For the same industry application software, it is also a common technical problem that the industry application software must face. Compared with customized application software, it has the characteristics of large-scale market and industrialized production of software products. Industry middleware is of positive significance to China's software industry. It can not only carry forward the advantages of China's software industry, but also have a large-scale market for middleware software

3. User needs are divided and diversified

with the increase of the number of developers, the expansion of product application scope and the increase of application demand industry, middleware software has gradually produced many types of segmentation. While the types of middleware software are constantly subdivided, the concept of Chinese middleware software also shows a polarization trend due to different user needs, that is, from general middleware software to basic middleware that is increasingly closely combined with platform software (such as operating system, data, equipment operation library management system, etc. in strict accordance with the requirements of the equipment specification), And application middleware, which is increasingly integrated with industry application systems. The increasingly personalized and complex user needs will promote the continued segmentation of the middleware software market. It can be predicted that in the next few years, the demand of Chinese market users for middleware software is bound to expand rapidly

4. Service will become the meeting point of supply and demand

product technology is the basis for the survival of middleware software, and service is the necessary condition for the development of middleware software. Users' needs also show that products are not the only factor they value, and more professional and high-level services are also an important standard to measure manufacturers and products. Middleware software is usually used in some integration projects, because it involves the enterprise system architecture and business applications, so the project requirements are high. From the beginning, services have become a part of user needs, and increasingly become an important part of distinguishing products from different manufacturers. Therefore, service will become a focus of manufacturers' competition in the next few years, and become the main competitive means for manufacturers to compete for users. (end)
