It is creating space for co-innovation to develop more scalable, and smarter solutions.

Component Insights

In 2020, the services segment dominated the market and accounted for the highest revenue share of 79.4%. Companies and organizations lack the resources and skillsets required for the deployment of advanced computing systems and solutions. The easy availability of outsourcing IT services can be availed for short-term project-based or long-term contracts. These services are available as Software-as-a-service (SaaS), Infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS), and Platform-as-a-service (PaaS). Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) dominated the services segment with a revenue share of 57.5% due to the growing adoption of the model in hospital and clinical settings.

The services included in the SaaS model range from web-based email to inventory control to database processing. However, the Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) model is expected to record the fastest growth rate over the forthcoming years, since it offers enhanced control and customization of apps developed by providers and additionally minimizes costs and ownership concerns which are usually associated with Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS).

On the other hand, the hardware segment is anticipated to record the fastest growth rate over the forthcoming years. An increase in demand for hardware platforms with high computing power to operate cloud infrastructure and systems is contributing to the segment growth. Hardware corresponds to all electronic devices and human-machine interface devices, such as computer systems and network assistant devices. The price of these devices, especially electronic devices, is expected to fall over the forecast period, which is anticipated to reduce the overall cost of healthcare cloud infrastructure implementation and thereby contribute to the growth in demand.

End-use Insights

In 2020, the healthcare providers segment dominated the market and accounted for the largest revenue share of 60.4% due to a significant surge in hospital connections over the cloud infrastructure, thereby impacting the demand for the SaaS model. Some of the benefits of these systems are secure off-site data storage and management and the easy availability of outsourcing of IT solutions and services eliminating the need for in-house IT personnel. Scalability, flexibility, and enhanced data management offered by advanced computing systems and solutions and constant technological advancements in this space is expected to drive the demand and boost the care providers’ segment growth over the forthcoming years.
