The Global Low-Code Development Platform Market size is expected to reach $46.4 billion by 2026, rising at a market growth of 25% CAGR during the forecast period. Low-code development platform (LCDP) is platform that offers a coding environment that is used to build application applications via graphical user interfaces and configuration instead of conventional hand-coded computer programming. A low-code architecture allows developers with varying levels with expertise to build apps using a dynamic user interface in conjunction with model-driven logic. Such platforms may produce fully operational applications or require extensive coding for specific situations.

As a part of the micro computer revolution, businesses have distributed computers extensively around their employees’ bases, allowing mass integration of business operations using software. The need for digital integration and modern business process solutions imposes demands on software developers to create tailored systems in quantity, tailoring them to the specific needs of organizations. Low-code technology systems have been and are being developed as a way of facilitating the fast production and usage of functional software that can meet the unique process and data needs of the enterprise.

Niche platforms are designed to satisfy specific corporate demands, such as business process management (BPM), event management, and even customer relationship management (CRM). Low-code is a feature for such products, not a competitive bid. These platforms provide a scaled-down IDE visual production that enables the design of applications that function within the context and architecture of the software itself. These solutions are purpose-designed for a specific use case and are good for what they were developed for-but they do not fit the entire business range of use-cases for digital transformation.
