Video has penetrated all organizational divisions from information to communication. Video is unlike any other type of digital data. Depending on the quality, duration, and other parameters, it takes up more space. Cloud storage services are ideal for all forms of digital media. On the other hand, video stands out like a sore thumb among them, with its unique set of sharing, security, and management requirements. Videos have extremely high storage requirements, which can reach terabytes. For many use cases, videos are constantly shared and seen internationally by their employees, upper management, and external viewers such as clients, investors, and other stakeholders.

Globally, connected devices and connections are growing faster than both the population and internet users. This trend increases the average number of connections and devices in the organizations. Numerous machine-to-machine applications, such as video surveillance, smart camera solutions, healthcare monitoring, are contributing in a major way to the growth of devices and connections. The ever-increasing amount of data generated from these connected devices requires flexible and scalable video storage locations. Therefore, companies deploy cloud solutions and bring added value to the business and upgrade their existing IT infrastructure. For instance,

  • In September 2020, TikTok, a video-focused social networking service, collaborated with Oracle Corporation's Cloud platform for a secured video meeting solution. The company selected Generation 2 Cloud infrastructure to run its video meeting, and for this, Oracle is investing in TikTok. It is a highly secured cloud storage platform as it offers isolated running applications and anonymously tracks security.


Increased Adoption of Cloud among SMBs to Accelerate Market Growth

The COVID-19 pandemic has accelerated the adoption of cloud technology to transition the on-premise business operations to the cloud in response to the new normal remote work culture. In response to the pandemic, organizations shifted their workload to the cloud to remotely manage IT operations.

Further, the growing adoption of video conferencing services increased the demand for extended storage, which is likely to contribute directly in the cloud video storage market growth. For instance, in August 2021, Zoom partnered with Seagate's Lyve Cloud to store video meetings recordings.

Rising Adoption of Hybrid Multi-Cloud to Boost Market Growth

Organizations adopt a hybrid multi-cloud approach for data storage to improve data mobility between the public, private cloud, and on-premises. Hybrid cloud allows enterprises to collect, isolate, and store data as per their choice, on public, private, hybrid, or on-premise. It allows organizations to connect several storage options such as object storage, file storage, backup systems, and block storage. Thus, organizations adopt hybrid cloud storage due to data security, flexibility, and agility. According to Flexera's State of the Cloud Report 2021, currently, 92% of companies have a multi-cloud strategy in place or the ongoing process, and about 82% of large enterprises have already deployed hybrid cloud infrastructure.

Thus, increased hybrid multi-cloud among enterprises will likely create new market opportunities for video cloud storage.


Growing Demand for Digital Video Streaming to Boost Market Growth

The rising adoption of smartphones and increasing network connectivity enable consumers to watch digital content or media, entertainment, information, and others as per their preferences from anywhere and anytime. Today's consumers expect the availability of streamed audio or video content. Increasing video streaming subscribers are likely to drive cloud video storage adoption.

The streaming service providers adopt cloud storage to deliver high resolution and low latency video content to users. The pay-as-per-use pricing model helps service providers to reduce infrastructure costs. Cloud storage providers offer backup of video files, which allows retaining deleted files. Also, cloud storage providers such as Sync.com, Google Drive, pCloud, and Microsoft OneDrive provide excellent security and protect the privacy of video content, which is likely to drive the adoption of cloud storage for video.


Limited Network Bandwidth to Inhibit Product Demand

Video files of 4K and 8K resolution need high network bandwidth to upload and download files. Low internet and computer speed impact the uploading and downloading of video files over the cloud. The limited video uploading and downloading speed restrict the proliferation of cloud storage. Video files such as movies, shows, high-resolution videos, documentaries, and others require a massive amount of storage. Hence, limited storage offered by cloud service providers may impede the adoption of cloud storage by video producers.

However, the major market players such as Box Inc., Dropbox Inc., Sync.com, and OpenDrive offer unlimited storage to users, which is expected to overcome this restraint and increase the demand for cloud storage in the coming years.


By Deployment Analysis

Hybrid Cloud's Flexibility and Scalability to Fuel Market Growth

Based on deployment, the market share is categorized into public, private, and hybrid.

The public segment is anticipated to hold the dominant share in the market during 2021-2028. Public cloud is one of the most extensively utilized technique of implementing cloud computing services. A third-party cloud service provider (CSP) oversees and owns the cloud infrastructure and provides it via the internet. App Engine from Google Inc. and Azure from Microsoft Corp. are both examples of cloud storage. Further, public cloud is commonly used for web-based emails, testing apps, storage & development along with online office applications.

  • In January 2018, Forbes projected that by 2020, 41% of business workload would be running on public cloud platforms. Another 20% will use a private cloud, with 22% relying on hybrid cloud adoption. Further, it is predicted that on-premise workloads will decrease from 37% to 27% by 2020.

During the cloud video storage market forecast period, hybrid cloud is expected to rise rapidly. Hybrid cloud allows businesses to take advantage of both public and private cloud deployment. Businesses could utilize public clouds with low-security requirements and large data volumes. AWS hybrid cloud storage, for example, can connect customers' on-premises systems and applications to cloud storage, reducing administration effort, lowering costs, and enabling data innovation. The present unstructured storage market is developing to accommodate hybrid cloud operations and functionalities as IT leaders seek to use public cloud agility, efficiency, and cloud computing capabilities.
