"Smart Strategies, Giving Speed to your Growth Trajectory"
The infrastructure as a service market was USD 108.81 billion in 2022 and is projected to grow from USD 130.08 billion in 2023 to USD 531.84 billion by 2030, exhibiting a CAGR of 22.3%.
In the Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) model, the cloud provider manages IT infrastructures, such as servers, storage, and networking resources, and makes them available to subscriber organizations through virtual machines accessible over the internet. IaaS benefits organizations in several ways such as by making workloads easier, faster, more flexible, and more cost-efficient. Thus, IaaS allows users to run any operating system or application on a leased server without paying to operate and maintain the server.
Infrastructure as a service helps businesses in multiple scenarios where rapid deployment and scalability are critical. In other words, fast-growing companies that lack the capital to invest in hardware are excellent candidates for the IaaS model. IaaS also benefits companies with constant application workloads that want to offload some of the day-to-day operations and maintenance associated with managing infrastructure. For instance,
Increasing Cloud Computing Service Adoption to Drive Market Demand
The outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic has boosted market growth due to increased adoption of cloud computing services. Cloud computing has played a key role in enabling businesses and governments to apply solutions to crises and maintain continuity quickly. The growing number of employees working from home and using conferencing and collaboration services strains back-end support services and increases traffic on the networks that connect users to these services. Only providers with robust and abundant architecture that delivers an uninterrupted customer experience can manage the increased load.
Additionally, according to a study by Manage Engine, almost 97% of Indian businesses have increased their reliance on cloud technologies as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, with businesses turning to adopting solutions such as Software as a Service (SaaS), Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), and Platform as a Service (PaaS). Increased use of hybrid clouds, which integrate both public and private clouds, is another factor driving growth. It enables businesses to process data at high speeds, share large amounts of information via the cloud, and minimize the total cost of ownership. These are the major factors that contributed to the COVID-19 pandemic’s spread. For instance,

Distributed Cloud Computing and Cost Optimization will Drive Cloud Adoption and Bolster Market Growth
Businesses of the future will require distributed cloud infrastructure applications and databases to meet modern workflows and their requirements. Distributed cloud computing has a geographically dispersed infrastructure that runs services primarily at the edge of the network, helping organizations reduce latency, network congestion, and the risk of data loss. Additionally, users can keep sensitive data in specific regions across distributed cloud data centers to ensure intelligent placement of data, processing power, and storage. Additionally, applications moving to public cloud infrastructure as a service need to be optimized for cost-effectiveness. Cloud providers continue to enhance their native optimization capabilities to help organizations choose the most cost-effective architecture that can deliver the performance they need. The market for third-party cost optimization tools will also grow, especially in multi-cloud environments.
Increase in Demand for Low-Cost IT Infrastructure and Faster Data Accessibility to Drive Market Growth
Organizations around the world are focused on developing a mobile workforce that allows employees to access data remotely through internet services. This requires virtualized IT components such as servers, storage, and networks. With standard IT infrastructure installations, Infrastructure as a service provides faster data access regardless of data center location. In addition, IaaS minimizes initial investment costs by eliminating the need for onsite data centers and ongoing service and maintenance costs. Moreover, the developing trend of digitization along with the increasing adoption of cloud computing services, is one of the key factors driving the growth of the market. Cost-effective IT infrastructure and increasing demand for high-speed data access by various industries are also driving the infrastructure as a service market growth. The market is gaining further momentum with the widespread use of Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS) for organizations to protect sensitive data and recover effectively in the event of a natural or man-made disaster.
Additionally, the increasing deployment of a hybrid cloud that integrates both private and public Cloud is another growth-inducing factor. This enables organizations to process data at high-speed, share massive amounts of data via the cloud and reduce overall operational costs. Other factors, including several technical developments in the IT sector and extensive research & development activities in the field of wireless technology are estimated to drive the market further.
Challenges Related to Hacking May Restrain Market Growth
The increased risk of numerous operational challenges, data breaches, and the risk of poorly installed infrastructure in some enterprises are impeding the IaaS market. Strict regulations regarding data security are likely to pose a challenge for the IaaS market. The biggest challenges for the market are high initial investment costs and the difficulty of accessing infrastructure services. Additionally, typical infrastructure as a service security threats include data leaks, interface and API hacks, cyberattacks, permanent data loss, lack of awareness of cloud capabilities, application vulnerabilities, and cloud service exploitation. As data distribution increases, I&O organizations face the challenge of providing data protection and control. Privacy concerns are expected to hamper the growth of the market. For instance,
Adoption of Hybrid Model is Likely to Fuel Market Growth
As per the analysis, hybrid segment holds the highest market share due to increase in adoption of hybrid models. It has played an important role in enhancing the adoption of solutions in the IaaS market. Various organizations are expected to avoid assigning all of their data to a single system in a single location by utilizing hybrid cloud services. Storing all the data in one place makes organizations susceptible to unforeseen errors or data theft. As a result, when compared to other approaches, hybrid cloud architecture reduces the risks associated with data theft or loss. Moreover, the public cloud is expected to witness a significant growth rate owing to the increasing demand for this service from Small and Medium-sized Businesses (SMBs) and startups. These services are cost-efficient and provide high operational efficiency to end-users.
Increasing Demand for Computing to Bolster the Product Demand
As per our analysis, the computing segment holds the highest share in the market. Infrastructure as a service, also known as Hardware as a Service (HaaS), is one layer of the cloud computing platform. In the IaaS service model, the cloud supplier hosts infrastructure components that traditionally reside in the on-premises data center. IaaS provides various services, where computing as a service includes virtual center processing units and virtual main memory for the VMs that are provided to the end-users. This includes storage, servers, networking hardware, and the hypervisor, or virtualization layer. These services are becoming increasingly policy-driven, allowing IaaS users to implement higher levels of automation and orchestration for critical infrastructure tasks.
