The infrastructure as a service (IaaS) market is expected to grow from USD 15.79 Billion in 2015 to USD 56.05 Billion by 2020, at a CAGR of 29.0%. Several factors such as faster implementation, scalability, flexibility, and agility provided by the service; increasing market competition; and increasing demand for reducing investment on IT infrastructures, hardware, and hiring skilled resources are expected to bolster the growth of this market.

Additionally, the adoption of hybrid cloud among organizations is increasing, due to certain limitations of data security and expensive cost in public and private cloud models, respectively. The increase in adoption of hybrid model has played a significant role in enhancing the adoption of solutions in IaaS market. The other major factors responsible for the upsurge in the adoption of IaaS include—optimum utilization of computing resources cost effectively; efficient management and security of business data; increasing digitalization; technological advancements; and escalating demand of disaster recovery, storage, and virtualization among numerous industries ranging from IT & telecom, BFSI, healthcare, retail & e-commerce to government and other industries is driving the growth of the infrastructure as a service market tremendously.

Higher adoption rate in SMBs and mobility and BYOD trends among organizations have emerged as new opportunities to drive this market in the future. These technologies are supported by IaaS solutions, allowing users to connect from any location and providing many benefits, such as increased productivity, reduced IT, and operational costs. Some of the leading solutions include managed hosting, STaaS, colocation, and DRaaS.

The IT & telecom industry, along with BFSI and healthcare industries, account for the largest market share in the overall market. Increasing volume of business data in such verticals and concerns related to the security, confidentiality, and management of such a huge volume of critical individual information, financial, and other health related information are some of the major factors resulting in high spending by the verticals in the markets. Other high growth sectors include retail & e-commerce, government, and energy & utilities.

Among regions, North America is projected to have the largest market share and is expected to dominate the infrastructure as a service market from 2015 to 2020. This is backed by the existence of major IaaS vendors in the regions of North America. APAC is expected to showcase the highest growth potential and is projected to grow at a CAGR of 35.8% in IaaS market simultaneously. Increasing digitalization trends, adoption of internet, increasing adoption of smart devices and increasing number of SMBs demanding enterprise level computing capabilities at low cost, are increasing in countries India, China, Brazil, UK, Australia, and others thereby giving rise to the adoption of IaaS in the region.

Infrastructure As A Service Market

However, privacy and data protection concerns, high initial investment costs, and other operational challenges are faced by most of the organizations and they struggle to make the optimum use of IaaS and other cloud technologies, which has been significantly hindering the growth of the market. Technological giants such as AWS, Google, IBM, Cisco Systems, CSC, VMware, Rackspace, and Fujitsu, along with some other innovators such as ProfitBrick, Savvis, Mindtree, and others, are providers of leading IaaS solutions. These players have adopted various growth strategies such as new product launches, partnerships, contracts, collaborations, acquisitions, and expansions to expand their global presence and increase their market shares in the global infrastructure as a service market.
