As the internet penetration and smartphone adoptions across the globe are increasing, customers are becoming more empowered. This is encouraging organizations to opt for more dynamic and advanced delivery models to connect to their customers and provide personalized experiences. Moreover, the growing need to reduce the operational costs and maintenance of the IT infrastructure also encourages the adoption of cloud infrastructure services by several organizations.
The need for scalable infrastructure by various enterprises to increase their business operations and customer base also propels the market growth. As the competition among market players is increasing, organizations are looking for more advanced business models to reduce their time to market and switching to cloud infrastructure to improve the business agility.
The risks of data theft and data leakage are hindering the adoption of cloud solutions by the enterprises. The cloud services providers employ third-party service providers to enable cost-effective and flexible operations. This increases the chances of data being stolen as it is difficult to assess the security levels of all these external servers. In addition, the adoption of data localization policies across the globe is also hounding the market growth.

This is a business model in which large businesses lend storage space to smaller companies. SaaS vendors are promoting the service as a convenient way to store the backup data.

Most of the CaaS services are priced through a consumption-based model.
The private cloud deployment model is anticipated to grow significantly in the cloud infrastructure services market. This private cloud market has been widely used by large and small businesses as it provides better control over data and information assets.

The public clouds are most suitable for start-ups as there are minimal setup costs.

The hybrid cloud allows organizations to respond to fluctuating demands and helps balance the high subscription costs associated with private cloud platforms. Vendors are focusing on expanding their hybrid cloud product portfolio. For instance, VMware has joined forces with Amazon to offer a complete hybrid platform on AWS. Some vendors are also offering on-premise platforms to extend their public cloud offerings.

The market growth is attributed to the presence of major technology players such as Amazon, Google, and Microsoft. This region is also a major hub for technology start-ups. Favorable business conditions and supportive government policies have encouraged businesses to develop advanced cloud platforms. Moreover, increasing venture capital in the cloud technology by prominent tech players has also driven the market growth.
The Asia Pacific cloud infrastructure services market is anticipated to grow at the fastest pace due to the growing demand from developing economies.
