The global big data technology and services market is expected to rise at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 31.7% to $23.8bn in 2016, according to a new report from IDC.

The research firm revealed that the big data market is growing rapidly and incorporating technology and services from a range of existing and new market segments.

The market is expected to exhibit strong growth over the 2012-2016 forecast period.

IDC Business Analytics and Big Data research vice president Dan Vesset said that big data technology and the service market is a fast-growing, multibillion-dollar worldwide opportunity.
