Report Code: TC 6859 Jan, 2019, by marketsandmarkets.com

[96 Pages Report] The high performance computing as a service market is projected to reach USD 10.0 billion by 2023 from USD 5.7 billion in 2018, at a CAGR of 11.9%. Growth in this market is driven by the deployment of new products and services, access to better technologies, and reduced capital costs.

High Performance Computing as a Service Market

The healthcare and life sciences segment is expected to grow at the highest CAGR from 2018 to 2023

The number of life science applications are expected to increase in the future, thus leading to an increase in data storage requirements. Data-intensive applications such as genomics, protein modeling, personalized medicine, and data mining that require real-time data processing will drive the adoption of HPCaaS.

Platform as a service is expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period.

Majority of Independent Software Vendors (ISV’s) are delivering or are planning to deliver cloud-based versions of their offerings for HPC. Major roadblocks for “as a service” adoption is the cost of the licensed or commercial products. Furthermore, they are bulky to run on the cloud and are expensive too.

Asia Pacific is expected to experience the highest growth in the High Performance Computing as a Service market

By Region, APAC is dominating the HPCaaS market as China is emphasizing on enhancing its supercomputing capabilities. Recently, China topped with 202 supercomputers in the world’s top 500 supercomputers survey.
