4 Low-code Trends to Watch in 2023

The global market for low-code development technologies is projected to total $26.9 billion in 2023, an increase of nearly 20% from 2022, according to the latest forecast from Gartner, Inc. Low-code continues to be a popular method for businesses to quickly and easily create custom software without the need for extensive coding knowledge. We couldn’t agree anymore, so we wanted you to keep an eye out for these four low-code trends to watch in 2023:

1. Developer shortage - yes, this is still happening

The growing popularity of low-code can be attributed to the shortage of skilled software developers. These platforms allow companies to build custom applications without the need for specialized programming knowledge, opening up development to a wider pool of potential employees.

2. Startup approved and enterprise adopted, welcome to the bandwagon

Low-code platforms have traditionally been used by smaller companies and startups, but we are now seeing more and more large enterprises turn to low-code solutions to streamline their software development processes.

3. No-code platforms enter the spotlight

While low-code platforms require some understanding of programming concepts, no-code platforms are designed for complete beginners. These platforms use visual drag-and-drop interfaces and pre-built templates, making it possible for anyone to build custom software without writing a single line of code.

4. Blurred lines between low-code and traditional development

As low-code platforms become more powerful, the distinction between low-code and traditional development is starting to blur. Some companies are using low-code platforms for rapid prototyping before handing the project off to a team of traditional developers to add more complex functionality.

Overall, the low-code trend is revolutionizing the way software is developed, making it faster and easier for companies of all sizes to create custom solutions that meet their specific needs.
