Cloud compliance requirements, enforcing mobility, and uninterrupted business continuity are expected to drive the cloud storage market

The cloud storage market size is expected to grow from USD 30.70 billion in 2017 to USD 88.91billion by 2022, at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 23.7% during the forecast period. The demand for cloud storage is driven by many factors, such as increasing adoption of hybrid cloud storage; growing need for enterprise mobility for improved efficiency; significant growth in Internet of Things (IoT); and need for lower Capital Expenditure (CAPEX) and Operational Expenditure (OPEX).However, the market would face some restraints, as not all enterprise services are supported in the cloud, and also due to strict government rules and regulations, and fear of vendor lock-ins.

Data archiving solution type is expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period

Data archiving solutions provide long-term data storage along with data retention, security, policy regulation, and compliance fulfillment. They assist enterprises in reducing the overall primary storage consumption and costs while moving the inactive data to a separate storage at the same time. Data archiving solutions enable enterprises to identify and move the inactive data to a separate storage system for future reference or sometimes for regulatory compliance.

Managed services segment is expected to record the fastest growth rate during the forecast period

Managed services help enterprises focus on their core business, service quality, and end-user experience while delivering optimized and quality IT services through third-party providers, known as Managed Service Providers (MSPs). MSPs help enterprises by providing IT resources, including servers, networks, and specialized applications, under a delivery agreement. The adoption of managed services has resulted in increased productivity and reduced deployment time.

North America is expected to hold the largest market share, and APAC to grow at the fastest rate

North America is expected to hold the largest market share during the forecast period, as organizations are shifting toward cloud storage solutions and services, with an increasing adoption of digital business strategies. Furthermore, organizations have invested heavily in advanced technologies to gain a competitive advantage and improve business operations. Asia Pacific (APAC) is expected to be the fastest-growing region in the global cloud storage market. The key reasons for the high growth rate in APAC include the positive economic outlook in the region, increased spending on Information Technology (IT) infrastructure, and the tendency of cloud storage solutions and services to drive customer experience and improve operations.
