Market Overview

The global cloud computing market was valued at USD 210 billion in 2019 and is estimated to grow at a CAGR of 16.9% during the forecast period, 2020–2027.

The adoption of multi-cloud strategies by consumers is set to engender a positive trend for cloud computing. Cloud computing technology has been experiencing a golden era from the past few years, gaining traction across all the commercial sectors. Businesses around the world are focusing on the adoption of cloud services for lowering infrastructure costs and enhancing operational flexibility.

Global-Cloud-Computing-MarketIntense competition exists in the market, with Amazon, Microsoft, and Google operating at the forefront. In the competitive scenario, Amazon dominates the market with close to a 50–60% share globally, which has compelled other players (Microsoft and Google) to devise dynamic solutions, such as Microsoft Azure and Google Cloud Platform, for gaining a competitive edge in the market. Since then, these companies have been firmly operating with innovation in cloud offerings.

In light of such innovative and trustworthy tools, there is a rise of multi-cloud adoption, which has paved the way for companies to migrate, manage, and monitor data across multiple clouds. Companies following these strategies have also gained significant advantages in terms of application reliability and reduced cost and leverage the best services that each vendor provides. For instance, Snap Inc., one of the primary camera and social media companies in the U.S., successfully integrated this strategy in its business model and achieved a price reduction in its hosting segment from USD 0.72 to USD 0.69 in the first quarter of 2018. Additionally, the survey results published by RightScale in 2018 also portray that around 80% of the respondents opted for a multi-cloud strategy globally.

One of the striking factors behind this colossal adoption is the growing use of microservices that primarily form a snippet of code connected together to develop comprehensive applications. Microservices primarily highlight the growth of multi-cloud factor, owing to their less resource-intensive and portable nature. Thus, with the growing significance of cloud computing, coupled with the latest developments, the scope of innovation widens within the market prospects, enhancing market growth in a longer run.

Segmentation Overview

By Model

Based on model, the market is segmented into Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), Platform as a Service (PaaS), and Software as a Service (SaaS). Among these, the SaaS model dominated the market with a share of 60–65% in 2019. The present market scenario for SaaS depicts an increase in adoption rate as a result of the changing dynamics of B2B, the emergence of state-of-the-art products, increasing awareness pertaining to its benefits, and the pressing need to gain a competitive advantage.

The model is considered as an attractive option of investment, specifically for private equity firms that are focused on investing access funds due to the changing tax regulations scenarios across the globe on account of its lean cost structure and high customer lifetime values.

Global-Cloud-Computing-Market-ModelOn account of the ability to achieve higher efficiency and flexibility on both financial and technical parameters, companies are seen to be increasingly adopting the SaaS model in their management and operations. Additionally, as per our analysis, close to 85–90% of business organizations will be utilizing public cloud IaaS and PaaS by integrating them by the end of 2026.

The launch of AWS’s DocumentDB in January 2019 is one of the examples that depict companies focusing on increasing the ease of using one service or platform for multiple purposes. A customer-centric approach from SaaS service providers will result in higher customer success rates, simultaneously improving retention rates.
