The Cloud Backup Market is expected to register a CAGR of approximately 24% during the forecast period (2020 - 2025). The primary driver for adoption of cloud backup across businesses is due to the increase in cloud adoption across both big and small is the need for agility and flexibility in the face of accelerating innovation and disruptions from competitors.

  • For instance, according to Right Scale’s annual State of the Cloud Report for 2019, approximately 94% of the enterprises are using the cloud, out of which, 91% of businesses use public cloud, and 72% use a private one, while most enterprises are opting for both the options, i.e., 69% of them opting for a hybrid cloud solution.
  • In April 2020, Commvault launched the NetApp Scale-out Data Protection (SDP), to offer enhanced and rapid recovery support solutions for critical data across NetApp’s hybrid-enabled storage systems. The NetApp SDP leverages the Commvault Complete Backup and Recovery software to provide snapshot management, backup, and disaster recovery functionality.
  • Moreover, according to a study by EMC, approximately 40 trillion gigabytes of data (40 zettabytes) is expected to be generated by 2020. Also, IBM estimated that approximately 90% of the data was generated in the last two years. Due to the massive data generation, there has been an increasing demand for low-cost data backup/storage across enterprises.
  • Furthermore, due to the global coronavirus outbreak, the demand for cloud backup solutions have been on the rise. This is primarily due to the increase in remote working locations of employees across the world. Also, SaaS-based collaborative applications witnessed a substantial increase in demand during the lockdown period, due to the need to work remotely.
  • However, cloud backup solutions are one of the most comprehensive tools against cyber-attacks and data breaches. However, if mismanaged, it may pave the way for the attackers to seamlessly enter the database stored on the backup server and use it against the user. Hence, the privacy and security issues act as a major hindrance to the adoption of cloud backup solutions.

Key Market Trends

BFSI Expected to Exhibit Maximum Adoption
