In-Stat Forecasts Growth in All Public Cloud Service Segments
Overall public cloud computing (IaaS, SaaS, and PaaS) is set to grow 153% from 2010 to 2015, according to a new In-Stat research, Cloud Computing and Managed Hosted Services: US Business Spending by Size of Business and Vertical, 2010-2015.
The research indicates that IaaS (infrastructure as a service) is set to grow to roughly $4 billion by 2015 and SaaS (software as a service) will grow 142% between 2010 and 2015. In-Stat has identified small business (5 to 99 employees) as the fastest growing size segment growing from $2.5 billion by 2010 to $6.6 Billion by 2015.
Small business account for more than half of the market in SaaS and IaaS; and the top 5 vertical markets for IaaS in terms of 2011 market revenue will be hospitality and food, healthcare, social services, and retail trade.
Mining, forestry, fishing, agricultural services, and utilities are the bottom 5 verticals, according to In-Stat.
In-Stat’s report provides forecasts of US business cloud computing and managed hosting spending for the 2010-2015 period and includes detailed segmentation by product category, size of business, and vertical market.
“Growth is expected in all public cloud service segments,” said Greg Potter, analyst. Potter continued: “Many SaaS (software-as-a-service) applications have been around for a long time, but only now since the advent of entire platforms for applications, such as Google Apps and Force.com, are these applications gaining the necessary visibility among businesses to gain traction in the software market. Infrastructure-as-a-service is also gaining traction, especially in the small business market.”
