Public Cloud Services will Reach $1.3 Billion in India

While it's true that cloud computing service adoption has been driven mainly by organizations in developed markets within North America, Western Europe and the Asia-Pacific regions, we're now seeing significant upside opportunities in emerging markets, such as India.

The overall public cloud services market in India is already predicted to grow by 35.9 percent in 2016, to reach a total of $1.3 billion, according to the latest market study by Gartner.

Public Cloud Market Development

The highest growth in this emerging market will come from cloud system infrastructure services  -- such as infrastructure as a service (IaaS) -- which is projected to grow by 45.5 percent in 2016.

This cloud service adoption in India is followed by platform as a service (PaaS), and Gartner analysts have projected that segment of the market will grow 33.5 percent by the end of this year.


"The overall global public cloud market will mature, and its growth rate will slightly slow down from 17.2 percent in 2016 to a 15.2 percent increase in 2020," said Sid Nag, research director at Gartner.

According to the Gartner assessment, while Brexit and other growth challenges exist, some segments such as financial software as a service (SaaS) applications and the PaaS user markets will still see strong growth through 2020.

Outlook for Ongoing Cloud Growth in India

As buyers intensify and increase IaaS activity, they will be getting more for their investment: ongoing enhancement of performance, more memory, more storage for the same money -- which will further drive growth in consumption -- and increased automation in traditional IT outsourcing delivery.

"As PaaS offerings mature and the competitive landscapes consolidates, we predict that more organizations will consider expanding their PaaS adoption as an important component to their cloud computing strategy, and specifically to their SaaS deployments," added Mr. Nag.
