IDC expects the Asia/Pacific Excluding Japan (APeJ) Public Cloud market will grow at a year-over-year (YoY) rate in 2022 at 25.9 percent in comparison to 36.3 percent in 2021, as cloud migration continues to accelerate.
However, the YoY growth rates will slow down, beginning from 2023 with a YoY growth of 24.1 percent, to 21.4 percent in 2026.
“Organisations in the APeJ region are progressing their cloud adoption along the advancements offered by the cloud market segment. Organizations will continue to invest in these adjacent technologies to enhance their customer experience and business outcomes,” said Shahnawas Latiff, Research Manager, Cloud Services, IDC Asia/Pacific.
Infrastructure as a service (IaaS) will achieve a market value of $65.6 billion and makeup 42.7 per cent of the Asia/Pacific Public Cloud services market in 2026.
Platform as a service (PaaS) will reach a market value of $29.8 billion, contributing to 19.4 percent of the market.
