The global cloud infrastructure market is anticipated to portray significant growth over the forecast period owing to the growing demand from various technology-dependent industries such as manufacturing, telecom, and healthcare, among others. The cloud infrastructure provides companies with scalability, lower capital expenditure, and reliability in their business operations, thus inflating demand for cloud computing.
The emerging hybrid cloud solutions offer a transition solution that integrates public cloud and private cloud services with the existing on-premises infrastructure. Hybrid cloud enables organizations with specific requirements to make a transition toward cloud computing flexibly and efficiently. A fast-moving digital business transformation among the industries is expected to drive the cloud infrastructure market over the foreseeable period.
The cloud infrastructure includes hardware and services. The cloud infrastructure hardware component consists of storage, Ethernet switches, and servers such as Tower Server, Rack Server, Blade Server, and Density-Optimized Server. The services considered in the study comprise leading services such as Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), Software as a Service (SaaS), and Platform as a Service (PaaS). Organizations are increasingly adopting IaaS owing to its high scalability, complete control over infrastructure, and flexibility in business operations.

In contrast to its related industries like consumer electronics and semiconductors, the data center and communications infrastructure industry is expected to be more buoyant with continued strategic investments made to support the increased network traffic and data usage for remote working during the lockdown phase. From school closures necessitating students to use virtual offerings (Google Classroom ) to the governments using business analytics services (Power BI) for communicating virus updates, the demand for communication services and related infrastructure has witnessed an unprecedented rise amidst the global pandemic. Digital services including telemedicine are expected to remain popular even after the pandemic is contained, thereby ensuring strong growth in the communication infrastructure industry. The report will account for Covid19 as a key market contributor.
