According to the latest crop of statistics from IDC, the worldwide application server market bucked all trends and grew 128 percent, reaching almost $2.2 billion in 2000.

"IDC expects this strong growth to continue through 2005."

"'It's difficult to overstate the significance of this growth rate. When a market reaches the level of maturity that the [application server software platform] ASSP market reached in 1999, annual growth usually slows, not accelerates,' said Steve Garone, IDC's vice president of Application Development and Deployment research."

"BEA Systems and IBM claimed the largest chunk of this still-growing market, with revenue shares of 18 percent and 15 percent, respectively. Sun trailed in third with 8 percent."
