According to Stratistics MRC, the Global Telecom Cloud Market is accounted for $11.5 billion in 2022 and is expected to reach $44.0 billion by 2028 growing at a CAGR of 25.1% during the forecast period. The term "telecom cloud" refers to the transition of the telecommunications sector from antiquated landline services to cutting-edge cloud computing platforms. The shift towards cloud computing makes it possible for businesses to effectively utilise networking resources. The telecom cloud market will help industries use cloud computing for information technology optimisation. As some of the largest communication service providers across the globe modernize their networks, they facilitate large enterprises to transform the way they involve with a progressively digital world, by leveraging IP-based technology, UCaaS (Unified Communications-as-a-Service), embedded communications (such as voice, chat, and video built into web and business applications) and other novelties on an IP network.

According to Digital Ocean, in 2021, 74 % of enterprises indicated using cloud hosting/infrastructure services such as AWS EC2 or Azure VMs.

Market Dynamics:


Emergence of 5G standard and IoT usage in 5G catalyze demand

The launch of 5G has sped up the telecom sector's digital transformation as the fourth industrial revolution gets under way. The delivery of enhanced end-user experiences has been made possible by rapid bandwidth gains, and 5G wireless promises to speed up this process even more. Numerous businesses are using private clouds to operate their operations effectively as a result of the large increase in 5G caused by the upgrading of mobile networks. The virtual radio access network (vRAN) platform is being developed by Deutsche Telekom, a telecommunications service provider, using VMware telco cloud to change its network and support both LTE and 5G networks.


Portability and interoperability issues

When considering telecom cloud, problems with the cloud, such as portability, must be addressed. Cloud service providers offer a distinctive range of goods and services with the aim of making it simple to shift the cloud to different providers. The main problem occurs when PaaS, which has three components: platform, infrastructure, and management, is enabled with regard to the cloud. PaaS is made up of numerous layers. The actual components that are utilised by a PaaS are unknown to the organisation using it. Deploying applications in different regions of the world presents additional problems. Data overwriting is a problem that arises when portability is completed.


Demand for SDN and NFV-based cloud-native solutions to replace traditional networking model

Over the last few decades, network infrastructure has expanded significantly. Virtualization and the cloud environment have been used in the development of technologies like Software-Defined Network (SDN) and Network Function Virtualization (NFV). By substituting software for traditional hardware, NFV and SDN have become easier to utilise as their application in the contemporary digital era has grown. This has been a big driver for infrastructure vendors to start collaborating with businesses that offer technology, such those who offer NFV and SDN to customers. By explicitly separating the data plane from the control plane, SDN-based solutions enable software-defined networking. From an industrial perspective, this is essential to thriving in this virtual environment.


Risk of information loss

The widely used and popular cloud technology has given rise to some severe issues, one of which is the constant risk of data loss in the event that users do not have the information saved on their personal systems. Data loss from the cloud can result from user error or inadvertent deletion, data overwriting, and criminal activity. When a user accidentally deletes data under the assumption that it would be saved elsewhere or when the system becomes faulty, there is a danger of data loss. Over time, the large data centres update them continuously. Because the user has less control over the data's visibility and management, it is harder for the user to monitor every decision he takes, which might pose a major threat to the user's data.

Covid-19 Impact

The COVID-19 pandemic has had an effect on different business domain segments. Many businesses have seen a drop in their sales and revenue as a result of the implementation of various rules around the world, such as total lockdown, bans on import and export, and temporary bans on industrial facilities. Additionally, in order to address a number of issues, this epidemic has forced businesses to switch to cloud-based solutions. The adoption of 5G network deployments and other next-generation communication technologies has increased in many parts of the world, and service automation is now a key concern. These characteristics and the quickening pace of digitalization will lead to a rise in demand for telecom cloud in the upcoming years.

The software as a service segment is expected to be the largest during the forecast period

The software as a service segment is estimated to have a lucrative growth. SaaS refers to a cloud-based approach that uses the internet to offer customers software or apps on demand. The WFH model has been embraced by the majority of businesses across all industries to protect worker welfare and uphold operational effectiveness, fueling a surge in demand for SaaS-based collaboration tools. SaaS business applications are provided by several industry leaders including Microsoft, Sales force, SAP, Oracle, Adobe, and IBM for a variety of departments.

The private cloud segment is expected to have the highest CAGR during the forecast period

The private cloud segment is anticipated to witness the fastest CAGR growth during the forecast period. A private infrastructure gives telecoms better control, better security and data privacy, specialised computational resources like RAN, VNF, and edge apps and services, as well as cost-efficiency in underused capacities in an already existing data centre. Additionally, organisations can utilise the unused capabilities through cloud interfaces, giving them access to the same tools and benefits of cloud management software, including automated management, a self-service interface, and the opportunity to sell unused capacities to associate businesses.

Region with highest share:

North America is projected to hold the largest market share during the forecast period owing to early adoption of cloud computing services by many North American states, especially the US, gave the continent the largest market share among other continents. The area has pressured its residents to follow BOD and utilise less internal facilities. As a result, the region now leads the telecom cloud market in revenue. Although the fundamental benefit of the cloud is the reduction in capital costs, it is currently employed to boost agility and flexibility and hasten the adoption of new technologies.

Region with highest CAGR:

Asia Pacific is projected to have the highest CAGR over the forecast period, owing to high prospects exist for the deployment of the telecom cloud due to the Asia Pacific region's significant infrastructure growth and the quick development of the 5G network. Companies are encouraged to grow in this region by government efforts and policies, which promote economic growth. A few factors contributing to the expansion of the local economy are the decline in administrative and operational costs, the high demand for over-the-top cloud services, and business awareness of telecom cloud.
