In 2021, the global hyperscale cloud market was valued at US$191.15 billion and is expected to grow to US$693.49 billion by 2026. The term “hyperscale” refers to scalable cloud computing systems in which a very large number of servers are networked together. The number of servers used at any one time can increase or decrease to respond to changing requirements. This means the network can efficiently handle both large and small volumes of data traffic.

Some of the reasons companies are switching to hyperscale cloud computing are speed, reduced downtime losses, easier management, easier transition into the cloud, scalability based on demand, etc. The hyperscale cloud market is projected to expand at a CAGR of 29.40% over the forecast period of 2022-2026.

Market Segmentation Analysis:

  • By End-User: The report provides the bifurcation of the hyperscale cloud market into nine segments based on end-user: BFSI, IT & Telecom, Retail & Consumer Goods, Media & Entertainment, Manufacturing, Energy & Utilities, Government & Public Sector, Healthcare, and Others. In 2021, the BFSI segment lead the hyperscale cloud market, accounted for a 25.0% share of the market. The BFSI industry is expected to experience high growth, owing to the increasing number of banking applications, which has resulted in the exponential growth of data in the banking and financial services industry. The manufacturing hyperscale cloud market is expected to grow at the highest CAGR of 31.35%. The scope for scaling operations up and down via the cloud enables manufacturing companies to mitigate market demand volatility. The future of all levels of the manufacturing industry is expected to incorporate cloud computing technology to stay more securely connected with consumers and the supply chain, hence contributing to market growth.
  • By Region: In the report, the global hyperscale cloud market is divided into five regions: North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, Middle East, and Africa. North America dominated the market in 2021 with almost 38% share of the global market. North America is anticipated to lead the global hyperscale computing market during the forecast period, due to the presence of well-established providers of hyperscale computing and increasing investment in technological advancements. North America is further divided into three regions: The US, Canada, and Mexico. The emergence of 5G technology along with growth in Industrial IoT (IIoT), complemented by technologies like big data, blockchain, and artificial intelligence (AI) would boost the adoption of hyperscale cloud services in the US. The hyperscale cloud market in the Asia Pacific is expected to hold a significant share, due to the presence of various developing countries and a growing number of hyperscale data centers. China held a major share of more than 45% in the Asia Pacific hyperscale cloud market in 2021.

Global Hyperscale Cloud Market Dynamics:
Growth Drivers: One of the most important factors impacting hyperscale cloud market dynamics is the increasing adoption of cloud in SMEs. Most IT enterprises in SMEs need the advanced technology of cloud computing services to flourish their businesses and leave their footprints in various geographies. An increase in the demand for cloud computing by SMEs led to the growth in the hyperscale cloud market. Furthermore, the market has been growing over the past few years, due to factors such as increasing penetration of IoT devices, growing usage of video streaming apps, growing AI software market, growing internet traffic, and an increasing number of hyperscale data centers, etc.

Challenges: However, the market has been confronted with some challenges specifically, insecurity of data, need to incur huge capital expenditure as technology advances, etc.

Trends: The market is projected to grow at a fast pace during the forecast period, due to various latest trends such as SaaS vendors re-platform onto hyperscale infrastructure, acceleration of digital transformation, hyperscalers dominating the IT spending, increasing 5G adoption, escalating edge computing, big data analytics, etc. The spending on IT would increase significantly, with companies increasingly using IT to digitalize their service offerings. The three main hyperscalers are as likely to dominate the new additional total addressable market (TAM) as they increasingly become integrated into company service offerings. This would allow the hyperscalers to maintain high levels of growth over the coming years.

Impact Analysis of COVID-19 and Way Forward:
Due to the pandemic, most companies have increased their cloud usage by more than they planned, resulting in higher cloud spending. In fact, according to a recent study by McKinsey & Company, companies globally have accelerated their cloud adoption compared to pre-pandemic adoption rates. This marks a significant shift in the use of cloud-based solutions, from being purely data storage solutions to environments in which data is used transactionally and supports day-to-day business operations. Therefore, an increase in the demand for cloud computing services has led to significant growth in the hyperscale cloud market. Demand for hyperscaling would continue to be driven by the accelerated digital transformation post-COVID, which would see corporates accelerate their shifting of on-premise systems to the cloud, and the adoption of hyperscale platforms as the main resource for software development, testing, and deployment.

Competitive Landscape:
The global hyperscale cloud market is highly concentrated, with few major players holding almost two-third of the market share.

The top infrastructure cloud providers, called hyperscalers, such as AWS, continue to invest massively in their data centres. After a relatively weak 2019, their capex growth started to accelerate again in 2020 and has continued to do so.

The key players of the global hyperscale cloud market are:

  • Amazon.Com, Inc. (Amazon Web Services, Inc.)
  • Microsoft Corp. (Microsoft Azure)
  • Alphabet Inc. (Google Cloud Platform)
  • Alibaba Group (Alibaba Cloud)
  • Oracle Corporation
  • IBM
  • Apple Inc.

In the hyperscale revolution, Amazon, Google and Microsoft used their software development skills to disrupt several traditional industries, such as retailing (, advertising (Google Search) and productivity (Microsoft Office 365). Then, these hyperscalers have extended their capabilities in data processing and IT networking to disrupt the IT industry itself, providing massive storage and computing platforms to enterprises, replacing the need to own datacenters filled with servers and customised software. This act is set to accelerate further over the next three years, with COVID triggering an acceleration of digitalisation trends.
