Market Overview

An open application programming interface (API), also known as an external API, is freely available or has limited restrictions for third-party developers. Open API enables developers to integrate the API into open-source data and related services to develop applications. Some of the prominent end-users of the open API are IT and telecommunications, banking, financial services, and insurance (BFSI) industries. It is also gaining popularity in the travel and tourism industry, government and education, media and entertainment, energy, and utility. Open APIs are designed to be easily accessible to third-party developers. The open API is gaining popularity among developers because it provides a deeper understanding of the communication between various software programs. This type of API reduces the developer's efforts in writing new code, resulting in more time for creating unique and useful software. Since this API is freely available to the public, it improves application compatibility and allows for more timely updates. The main advantage of an open API is that it enables third-party developers to work on complementary services created by the primary application. This provides an opportunity for businesses to include their services and products in external applications, which broadens their reach and encourages customers to purchase them.
