This IDC study provides an overview of the status of China's Internet datacenter (iDC) services market and a forecast for the next five years. The study also includes a competitive landscape with top vendor rankings, as well as a segment analysis. IDC also provides recommendations for Internet datacenter services providers.
"The China iDC services market maintained a high-speed growth momentum in 2013, and is expected to sustain the rapid development in the next five years. The growth of Internet and the rapidly growing mobile Internet are the primary market drivers, especially the booming of online video and online gaming applications. Moreover, the Internet penetration into the traditional vertical industries also brought the market with new opportunities and new customer base. Smart City construction is another market dynamics, in which huge amount of iDC resource demand will be leveraged. In 2013, the cloud services market was continuously growing, although the rise was still minimal compared with the total iDC services market. Telecom carriers made heavy investment in cloud datacenter constructions and will continually drive their advantages in infrastructure resource to compete in cloud market. Some of the non-carriers have also revealed their cloud service in 2013 by cooperating with worldwide leading vendors and localizing their successful cloud services in China. This cooperation model will help non-carriers quickly build up their unique advantages in terms of top-class technology and service level. Therefore, IDC believes much more such cooperation is expected in the future, which will essentially shape the unique ecosystem for China cloud services market," says Charlie Chen, market analyst, Services and Telecommunications Research, IDC China.
