Software is the lifeblood of most industries today. In many cases, it is the first point of contact between a business and its existing or potential customers. Software is an application-based computer program that can be customized to the needs of a business or individual user. Software that has been designed for small operations does not need service. But this is not the case with software that has been created for large-scale or critical operations. If the user base is wide and the software program in question needs to be used repetitively, the need for support service is evident. Thus, the SaaS market can either be product-based or service-based.

Some of the growth drivers in this market are: escalating industrial growth, an expanding IT industry, demand for customized services, and an increasing dependence on technology in general. 

A large share of the demand originates in the Asia Pacific market, but nearly all leading SaaS companies are of American origin. India has a massive demand for SaaS companies, and China is rapidly becoming a high-potential market owing to the frantic rate of industrial growth here. Both these densely populated countries comprise a large talent pool, allowing them to use these available resources and register an impressive growth rate.

Players in the SaaS market are increasingly offering services that are tailored to specific business verticals. This will bring about a high degree of specialization in the SaaS market. However, this market is heavily influenced by cost competitiveness, and companies tend to move business to locations that offer this cost advantage – often causing an exodus from time to time.
