The IaaS segment will remain the fastest-growing segment in 2016, forecast to reach 22.4 billion.

»IaaS continues to be the strongest-growing segment as enterprises move away from data center build-outs and move their infrastructure needs to the public cloud,« said Mr. Nag. »Certain market leaders have built a significant lead in this segment, so providers should focus on creating differentiation for success.«

Cloud application services (SaaS) is forecast to grow 20.3 per cent in 2016, to $37.7 billion. As software vendors shift their business models from on-premises licensed software to public cloud-based offerings, this trend will continue. In addition, the entry of some major software vendors into the public cloud last year will fuel growth of the SaaS market moving forward.
