The rise represents about six times the growth rate of the overall information and communication technology (ICT) market, the report said.

According to the report, the market is expected to exhibit healthy growth during the next five years despite various scenarios that may impact like demand and supply.

"The Big Data market is expanding rapidly as large IT companies and start-ups vie for customers and market share," Vesset added.
