Managed hosting accounted for the largest share in 2021

Managed hosting segment accounted for the highest revenue share in 2021 as it manages the websites and services of an organization without a huge staff and also reduces the operational cost of businesses as they do not require IT personnel to continuously manage their services. In addition, this offers maximum security and avoids threats of data breaches. It also provides additional features such as automatic backups, website monitoring, dedicated servers, and many more, projected to bolster the market over the forecast period.

Many small-scale enterprises are adopting managed hosting owing to its cost-effectiveness and various subscription facilities, which also support market growth.

Mobile-based application segment is expected to spearhead the market growth

The demand for application hosting in the mobile-based segment is driven by the increased usage of mobile applications, which has tremendously increased the demand for cloud hosting. Many organizations seek to use cloud-based solutions for hosting their application as it eliminates costs incurred by hardware implementation and directly hosts the app in the cloud, which is anticipated to fuel the segment growth.

Furthermore, the mobile-based application requires a robust system as it generates a large amount of data. This data needs to be correctly maintained and stored, which is not feasible by any physical server as it might cause an immense workload. Server hosting reduces the workload of such bulk data. It offers service providers a better experience and exposure to handle such issues, which ultimately increases the efficiency of the enterprise and contributes to the market’s revenue.

Small and medium-sized enterprises are expected to witness faster growth

The demand for application hosting in small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) is expected to see a significant surge over the forecast period, as many of these organizations need to be more capable of building a well-established infrastructure and need more resources to manage this infrastructure. Additionally, SMEs require a platform to host their applications and grab consumer attention regarding their services and product offerings. The growing adoption of managed and cloud-based hosting owing to their niche market presence and customized availability depending on the organization size and requirement is the major factor propelling the segment growth.

These advanced technologies empower SMEs to host their applications by leveraging the service providers' infrastructure at affordable rates. These hosting services provide many benefits, including automatic updates, recoveries, and security which reduce the organization's capital expenditure and eventually influence the segment growth.

Retail and E-commerce segment is expected to account for the largest share in 2030

The retail and e-commerce segment is expected to dominate the market over the forecast period owing to the changing lifestyle and consumer shift from in-store to online platforms. The growing adoption of cloud technology by many retailers to grow their online business presence and increase sales is expected to drive segment growth. Additionally, SMEs tend to use cloud computing technologies to increase their online business presence and reputation as it is affordable and reduces infrastructural costs.

Furthermore, managed hosting is also adopted by many e-commerce platforms as consumer share their personal and financial information, which needs to be secured and protected from any cyber threat. These hosting ensure that the website and server are free from cyber-attacks and minimize risks such as hacking and data thefts, bolstering the market growth.

North America dominated the market and is expected to witness fastest growth over the forecast period

North America is the largest region for application hosting. It is expected to witness faster growth over the forecast period owing to the growing adoption of managed and cloud hosting applications and the well-established infrastructure to acquire cutting-edge technologies. In addition, the large presence of collocation data centers and emerging various service providers with novel technologies to enhance the customer experience in the U.S. and Canada is projected to support regional growth.

Asia Pacific is expected to register the highest CAGR over the forecast period owing to the increasing usage of consumer electronics, including tablets, tv, and mobile phones, with the growing population.
