Worldwide Professional Developer Population of 24 Million Projected to Grow amid Shifting Geographical Concentrations

The analysts conduct extensive secondary research each year to determine the software developer population for the top 30 in the world. Sources include IMF, World Bank, CIA and many others. Data is put into a model which estimates current populations and makes projections for the next five years. This gives us the developer population data.

On top of that population data we layer selected results from our semi-annual Global Development survey to show not only overall populations but the number of developers in each country or region who are using various technologies like language, platform, etc. This makes this study unique in the industry.

The analyst recommends clients use this survey in combination with its companion survey series; the Global Development Survey series, in order to completely understand the full scope and complexity of the developer layout worldwide. This report combined with the Global Survey Series provides the most comprehensive view of developers on a global basis.

The current worldwide population of professional developers is projected to grow from 23.9 million today to 28.7 million in 2024 according to the de facto authority on worldwide developer populations, the Global Developer Population and Demographic Study. The study, now in its 26th iteration was recently released to subscribers. It combines intensive secondary research with a proprietary model to predict developer populations by regions and country, and then overlays actual primary survey research to estimate the numbers of developers adopting various technologies within those geographies.

The study shows strong growth in the Asia Pacific region followed by Latin America. Both regions are expected to grow at slightly faster rates than North America or the EMEA region. At a country level, there are predicted to be some leadership shake-ups by 2024 as India overtakes the US as the largest developer population center, Brazil displaces Japan in the fifth spot, and the UK surpasses Germany in the 7th spot. Additionally, Thailand and Poland are predicted to advance as Italy declines.

“There are a lot of variables that go into predicting the existence of a software developer in countries where there is no reporting,” said Janel Garvin, CEO, “While most are technology and education related there are also broader market and economic factors that we take into consideration and feed into our model. While change often doesn’t happen quickly, this is less true in emerging economies where we see significant growth occurring in the immediate future.”

The Global Developer Population and Demographic Study is produced twice a year and provides professional developer population estimates by country and region along with 5 year projections. Highlights from the biannual Global Development Survey are overlaid on the results to provide estimates of developer technology adoption within the same regions/countries.
