Cloud-managed services have several other benefits, such as enhanced IT functionality and customized IT services. The availability of robust infrastructure will remain a key concern for service providers as uninterrupted internet connectivity is required for service delivery. Simultaneous access from multiple users to the cloud might result in network congestion which can hamper the internet speed and lead to downtime. Massive loads from multiple client access on the server might result in a power failure, temporarily disrupting business operations.

Poor infrastructure and connectivity in developing regional markets such as India, Mexico, and MEA will remain the biggest challenge for the market to grow. Also, data privacy and data security over the cloud will restrain the market growth. Additionally, cost-sensitive enterprises may refrain from investing in these services owing to the initial high installation and maintenance cost.

Vendor lock-in is another primary concern for the service providers. Signing new contracts might include substantial charges along with application reconfiguration. In such cases, platform compatibility can be another concern, as applications developed on one platform might only be supported on one platform.

The COVID-19 pandemic had a positive impact on the cloud managed services market. The outbreak and subsequent restrictions imposed globally have accelerated businesses' digital transformation initiatives across various industries. It increased reliance on cloud-based solutions and services, driving demand for cloud managed services due to the shift towards remote work and the need for secure and scalable cloud infrastructure to support remote operations. As organizations transitioned their workforce to remote environments, there was a surge in demand for cloud managed services that provide robust connectivity, data storage, and collaboration tools.
