Additionally, the rapid market growth contributes to the greater need to reduce time to market and cost of application development and streamline application management. Furthermore, major industries are spending more on cloud services due to COVID-19, and relying heavily on public cloud services to meet short-term business goals is also contributing to the market growth.
The large enterprises segment accounted for the largest market share of over 54% in 2022. The segment growth is attributed to the accessing and viewing of critical data inside a cloud system for better control, collaboration control, and management of information rights.
