The DevOps wave is surging, and Mobile DevOps Engineering is the tip of this colossal wave.  It is not surprising that ‘DevOps Engineer’ emerged as the most coveted job in 2021.  The domain, valued at $7 billion in 2021, is estimated to swell to $51 billion by 2030, reflecting a tremendous CAGR of 24.7%.

Statistics from 2022 show a rising demand for DevOps skills (35.55%) and mobile development expertise (23.37%) among recruiters.  Additionally, the need for DevOps engineer roles is projected to elevate by 21% by 2028.  This demand links to the rising industry expectations—businesses require dedicated Mobile DevOps engineers to hasten deployment and supersede consumer expectations.

Mobile has surfaced as a primary revenue mechanism, triggering a mounting dependence on mobile apps.  With the growing pressure for faster deployment and seamless releases, the call for Mobile DevOps roles escalates.  The susceptibility of about 81% of all mobile apps to cyberattacks emphasizes the growing reliance on DevSecOps.

Remarkably, a fifth of developers now employ CI/CD tools for code automation, manifesting the increasing dependency on DevOps tools.  Companies embracing DevOps tools, like Bitrise, are reporting enhanced speed, quality, and ROI.
