The telecom cloud market is expected to grow from USD 10.92 Billion in 2016 to USD 30.79 Billion by 2021, at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 23.0% during the forecast period. The major drivers of this market include need for lower operational & administration costs and the increasing awareness about telecom cloud among enterprises.

The services segment holds the largest market size and is expected to continue its dominance during the forecast period. These telecom cloud services are gaining huge adoption due to their ability to provide enterprises with high bandwidth and redundancy of data maintenance, better connectivity, uptime, and smoother customer experience.

The telecom cloud market report has been broadly classified into applications. The traffic management application is expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period, followed by other applications, such as customer management. Many organizations feel that the customer life cycle management can help retain customers to a greater extent. The growing demand for telecom cloud is increasing the demand of this application widely.

The Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) model is estimated to hold the largest market size in the telecom cloud market. The main reason for high adoption of IaaS is that, it helps manage, monitor, and access remote datacenter infrastructure, such as storage, networking, and networking services. So, instead of purchasing hardware, users can purchase IaaS as per their requirement and consumption.

The Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) are moving towards the adoption of telecom cloud and are growing rapidly at a highest CAGR during the forecast period. SMEs are realizing the importance of cloud services & solutions, such as greater productivity, greater design efficiency, better product quality, decreased cost of new product introduction, insight into critical processes, better reporting & analytics, standards & regulatory compliance, improved design review & approval processes, improved communication, and increased resource utilization.

Media & entertainment is the highest growing vertical during the forecast period and is adopting telecom cloud at a faster pace. The end-user is expected to adopt telecom cloud solutions & services, as these eliminate the need for implementing and managing in-house billing systems, which enable them to reduce the total operational cost, further increasing the efficiency.

North America is expected to have the largest market share in 2016, whereas the Asia-Pacific (APAC) region is expected to grow at the highest CAGR from 2016 to 2021 in the telecom cloud market. The U.S. and Canada are the major regions contributing to the North American region. Both the U.S. and Canada have huge opportunities to explore the telecom cloud market. Canadian telecom companies are hugely investing into data centers, but with the increasing need for security and compliance, these telecom giants are now looking towards cloud.

Telecom Cloud Market

The need for lower operational & administration costs and the increasing awareness about telecom cloud among the enterprises are the driving factors for this market. On the other hand, the risk of information loss and increasing demand for Over-the-Top (OTT) cloud services are some of the major restraints & challenges in the market. The key vendors in the telecom cloud market are AT&T, Inc., BT Group PLC, Verizon Communication, Inc., Level 3 Communications, Inc., and Deutsche Telekom. These players have adopted various strategies, such as new product developments, acquisitions, and partnerships to serve the telecom cloud market. Continuous technology innovations is an area of focus for these players, in order to maintain their competitive position in the market and promote customer satisfaction, as well.
