Fri, 24th Feb 2023

The cloud services market is set to surpass US$4.4 trillion by 2033, as growing demand for cloud-based solutions among SMEs drive the adoption of cloud services.

According to a new report from Future Market Insights, in 2022, the cloud services market is anticipated to be worth US$564.4 billion. Increase from US$678.8 billion in 2023 to US$4.4 trillion in 2033, the market will grow at a 20.5% CAGR.

The market for cloud services, which had a 2017 market value of US$ 3.7 trillion, is anticipated to expand at a compound annual growth rate of roughly 19.6% between 2017 and 2022 as a result of the increased uptake of IoT technology by the manufacturing, transportation, and other sectors of the economy.

The demand for cloud services is anticipated to rise due to their utility-based sharing models, agile deployment, secure data management, low total cost of ownership, and advanced computing. The market for cloud services is projected to grow as they help businesses succeed by enabling companies to utilise AI capabilities and the adoption of cutting-edge technologies like artificial intelligence and machine learning.

The effective and quicker execution of company activities in shifting market environments is made possible by cloud services. Furthermore, the adoption of cloud services is rising as it has created numerous opportunities for developing highly engaging customer experiences. Additionally, cloud computing has changed people's and businesses' behaviour, many different industries are now able to get beyond technological limitations.

Increased internet penetration, expanding cloud adoption in SMEs, technological advancement, emphasis on lowering infrastructure costs, government efforts, and a low-interest rate environment all contributed to unprecedented growth. This expansion was hampered by the capital intensity and regulatory constraints.

Cloud services assist businesses in increasing operational effectiveness and cutting costs, however, the data stored there is still vulnerable to cyberattacks. The volume of data generated by digital transformation in businesses is rising, and as a result, so is the number of cyberattacks. Enterprise data are becoming vulnerable to cyberattacks such as cloud malware injection assaults, account or service hijacking, specter, meltdown, and man-in-the-cloud attacks, which pose a risk of business closure and financial loss. Cyberattacks, however, are impairing corporate operations, which limits the market growth for cloud services.
