The impact of COVID-19 (COVID-19) is expected to drive the cloud services market in the forecast period as the increasing number of people are working from home due to lockdowns imposed by governments globally that restrict the gathering of people in public places. Steps by national governments to contain the transmission have resulted in people working from home by accessing work-related systems and applications through the cloud. For instance, cloud spending rose 37% to $29 billion during the first quarter of 2020. This trend is likely to persist, as the exodus to virtual work underscores the urgency for scalable, secure, reliable, cost-effective off-premises technology services. In fact, despite the inevitable economic downturn in the wake of the pandemic, cloud spending is estimated to rise 19% for the full year, even as IT spending as a whole is forecasted to fall 8%. Thus, uncertainty surrounding the duration of the spread of COVID-19 is expected to lead to more companies adopting cloud technology to support their employees working from home, thereby driving the market growth.
