For instance, in May 2023, Amazon's cloud computing unit, Amazon Web Services, revealed its intention to invest USD 12.7 billion in cloud infrastructure in India by 2030. The aim is to meet the country's increasing demand for cloud services. According to AWS, the investment is anticipated to support an average of 131,700 full-time equivalent jobs yearly in Indian businesses. AWS assesses that its overall contribution to India's gross domestic product from 2016 to 2022 surpassed approximately USD 4.6 billion.
  • Organizations increasingly need solutions that enable employees to operate remotely safely and productively. To enable remote work for normal employees, contact center agents, and creative professionals, providers offer specialized solutions based on their clouds in a secure, timely, and affordable manner. However, cloud computing is a technology that provides platforms, software, and infrastructure on demand, making it prone to various kinds of data breaches. If customers are certain that security measures are in place, they will raise security concerns about outsourcing their data to public cloud services. Although cloud service providers work hard to protect their client's data, there have been several data breach events to cause problems for even the most well-known businesses. For instance, according to Verizon, in 2022, there were 1,829 reported cyber incidents in the financial industry worldwide.
  • Further, macroeconomic trends have a significant impact on the cloud computing market. The rising inflationary pressure is likely to increase the costs of professional services for companies operating on cloud environment. For instance, according to OECD, the annual monthly inflation rate in the Organization for Economic Co-Operation and Development (OECD) increased steadily from February 2021 to October 2022, when the inflation rate reached 10.7% compared to the same month the previous year.
