State of APIs
Are we monetizing APIs?
The number of organizations monetizing APIs in 2021 is up around 15% compared to previous years.
Developers from industries including financial services, technology, telecommunications, and healthcare reported monetizing APIs at an above average rate. There is also a marked increase in monetization from people who work in organizations that use over 10 APIs.
This growth correlates with the increase in developers who reported working on partner-facing APIs. As we move into 2022, we expect even more organizations will take advantage of the API economy and monetize their APIs.
