Telecom Cloud Market Statistics: 2030 

The global telecom cloud market size was valued at $18 billion in 2020, and is projected to reach $125 billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of 21.8% from 2021 to 2030. Telecom cloud is a term that defines the migration of telecommunication industries from outdated landline services to advanced cloud computing systems. The shift toward cloud computing enables companies to take advantage of networking resources in an efficient way. The telecom cloud market will benefit industries to utilize cloud computing for optimization of information technology.

Even during the pandemic, the major driving forces were able to sustain the market value. As people stayed at home during lockdown and companies preferred to allow working remotely, huge consumption of data led to an increase in the demand for telecom cloud. The global economy due to the telecom cloud market will grow exponentially, as it is able to generate demand even in critical circumstances.


In 2020, the global telecom cloud market share was dominated by the public cloud segment, and is expected to maintain its dominance in the upcoming years. Rapid digital transition between industries, rise in penetration of internet & mobile devices, and rise in big data consumption are the major drivers of the global telecom cloud market. 

The private cloud segment is estimated to emerge as the fastest growing segment, as several vendors within the telecom cloud market are focusing on increasing the  privacy standards. The private cloud market has grown as a result of rapid technological advances. Furthermore, proliferation of internet services & applications, including social media, video streaming, and online payments, has increased the need for secure data storage. In addition, increase in data volume in sectors such as BFSI, IT & telecom, healthcare, government, and retail has enforced these sectors to adopt private cloud services, thus contributing toward the market growth.

The report focuses on the growth prospects, restraints, and telecom cloud market analysis. The study provides the Porter’s five forces analysis of the telecom cloud industry to understand impact of various factors such as bargaining power of suppliers, competitive intensity of competitors, threat of new entrants, threat of substitutes, and bargaining power of buyers on the telecom cloud market analysis.

COVID-19 impact analysis

Post COVID-19, the global telecom cloud market forecast is estimated to be valued at $18,000 million in 2020, and is projected to reach $125,000 million by 2030.  

The worldwide pandemic outbreak and the subsequent chain of lockdowns changed the global telecom sector. During this time, telecom networks saw tremendous traffic, and demand for more telecom bandwidth was at an all-time high. With the aftereffects of the COVID-19 pandemic, the global telecom sector was set on a path of technological transformation to help handle the increasing demands of its consumers.

Adoption of next-generational communication technologies such as 5G network deployments were ramped up in many parts of the globe and automation of services were prioritized. According to a report published by the communications equipment and services provider Nokia, more than 64% of the communication services providers focused on improving the automation of operational services with the help of cloud technology. These trends helped the telecom cloud markets to prosper during the period.

Top impacting factors

Faster deployment and scalability of services with the help of telecom cloud and significant capital reductions over legacy telecom models are the major factors that impact the growth of the market. The market growth is further affected by limitations of the cloud model and third-party dependence and data privacy concerns in the public cloud. Moreover, increase in telecom dependence and significant advances in the domain of cloud computing and telecom services influence the market growth. However, each of these factors is anticipated to have a definite impact on the growth of the global telecom cloud market during the forecast period.

Faster deployment and scalability of services with the help of telecom cloud 

Telecom cloud solutions and services enable telecom operators and communication service providers to rapidly scale up whenever demand is high and scale down when demand is low. Compared to legacy on-premises-based telecommunication systems, scaling up or down with these modern telecom cloud platforms is significantly faster and cheaper. This gives opportunity for telecom operators and communication service providers to find an efficient balance between their services and cost management, providing a much more flexible model of operation.

With the help of telecom cloud platforms, communications service providers can quickly expand their service capabilities to meet specific customer needs. For instance, during a sporting event, telecoms can set a bandwidth limit for a pre-defined zone when demand is predicted to be high and then normalize it when the demand falls.

The flexibility and cost-effectiveness of telecom cloud platforms are now fueling the market growth, which is projected to further accelerate in the future.

Hybrid Cloud segment is projected as one of the most lucrative segments.

Increase in telecom dependence  

The outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic, work-from-home and online educational trends were extensively promoted in many countries to curb the spread of the coronavirus. This, in turn, resulted in overloading of numerous telecom infrastructure and services, as employees working from their homes and kids having remote classes were availing telecommunications services for working and studying. As a result, reliance on telecom cloud applications grew substantially throughout the period, and telecom cloud solutions became increasingly important to enable telecom operators and communications service providers to help manage network traffic and quality of services during peak demand.

Furthermore, remote working trend is expected to continue long after the pandemic. According to McKinsey & Company, more than 25% of the workforce will continue to work from home even after the end of the pandemic. This trend is likely to boost future demand for telecom cloud platforms, which is expected to offer remunerative opportunities for the expansion of the telecom cloud market growth.
