End-user spending on public cloud services in India is expected to touch USD 4.4 billion in 2021, an increase of
31.4 per cent over the previous year, according to research firm Gartner.
This is expected to grow further to USD 5.62 billion in 2022, Gartner said in a statement.
The continued trend of increased remote workers in 2021, will lead to an increase in spending on desktop-as-a-
service (DaaS) and infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS).
These segments are forecast to grow 47.7 per cent (to USD 73 million) and 52.2 per cent (to USD 1.44 billion),
Indian chief information officers (CIOs) saw the benefits of cloud during the first wave of the pandemic in 2020,
Gartner research vice president Sid Nag said.
"To build business resilience and minimize the impact of continued disruptions, investing in the cloud is
unavoidable. India has experienced consistent double-digit growth in cloud spending over the last three years, the
pandemic only expedited the shift," he added.
Spending on Cloud Business Process Services (BPaaS) is expected to grow 9.2 per cent to USD 207 million,
Cloud Application Infrastructure Services (PaaS) by 30.5 per cent to USD 997 million, Cloud Application Services
(SaaS) by 20.8 per cent to USD 1.41 billion, and Cloud Management and Security Services by 18 per cent to USD
317 million in 2021.
Gartner said spending on SaaS and cloud management and security services will experience double-digit growth
in India for the first time.
