The global disaster recovery as a service market exhibited strong growth during 2015-2020. DRaaS refers to a third-party cloud computing and backup service model that replicates and recovers virtual servers and data centers in case of a natural or man-made emergency. The backup is usually made on a public, cloud, virtual private cloud (VPC) or hybrid environment to secure sensitive information of the organization. It offers complete support and control over the network during failures and ensures business continuity by minimizing downtime and disruptions. Owing to these benefits, it finds extensive applications across the banking, financial services and insurance (BFSI), healthcare, manufacturing, information technology (IT) and telecommunication industries.

The emerging trend of digitization, along with the increasing adoption of cloud-based services across industries, is one of the key factors driving the growth of the market. There is widespread utilization of DRaaS solutions that eliminates the need for a secondary recovery site and offers faster data recovery with minimal complexities. Furthermore, increasing awareness regarding cloud-based backup, along with recovery benefits among both small- and medium-sized organizations, is also providing a boost to the market growth. These organizations frequently use DRaaS to test and execute an effective disaster recovery plan. Additionally, several technological advancements, such as the introduction of intelligent data replication, virtual machine inventory and automated testing, are also favoring the market growth. These advancements enable users to be aware of application changes and run automated tests in protected virtual environments. Other factors, including the rising instances of cyber-attacks and extensive research and development (R&D) activities, are projected to drive the market further. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the global disaster recovery as a service market to grow at a CAGR of 18.40% during 2021-2026.
