Global Market Size, Forecast, and Trend Highlights Over 2024-2036

Telecom Cloud Market size is anticipated to surpass USD 120 Billion by the end of 2036, growing at a CAGR of 23% during the forecast period, i.e., 2024-2036. In the year 2023, the industry size of telecom cloud was USD 17 Billion. The rise in demand for 5G is expected to drive the growth of the market. For instance, currently, there are 296 commercial 5G networks around the world, and it is expected that this number will increase to 438 in 2025. Therefore, the growing number of 5G networks globally is also impacting the market growth positively. The demand for cloud services is expected to increase as 5G's assured low latency and increased speed become available. It is expected that service providers and end users will benefit from these opportunities. For instance, with the announcement of a new 5G private network partnership between Orange Spain and Ericsson ERIC, marking a historic milestone in the country's digital transformation, Spain's B2B sector is set to receive a boost.

Furthermore, cloud-based customer relationship management (CRM) and customer experience platforms empower telcos to personalize services, anticipate customer needs, and deliver a superior user experience. The telecommunications industry benefits from the use of cloud-based analytical and artificial intelligence capabilities, allowing it to obtain valuable data on customer behavior that can enable it to make strategic decisions to enhance its service offerings. Therefore, this factor is bolstering the market growth.

Telecom Cloud Sector: Growth Drivers and Challenges

Growth Drivers

  • Growing Demand for Cloud-native Solutions - Demand for cloud-native network functions is expected to be fueled by rapid growth in industries and other technologies. Its effectiveness is influenced by the reduced automation and flexibility of cloud computing through traditional virtual networking functions. As the use of technologies such as Network Function Virtualization and Software Defined Networks (SDN) has increased globally, the technologies have been made simpler by replacing traditional hardware with software solutions. In addition, the SDN solutions directly detached data planes from control planes and thus enabled networks and programmable software to be driven by them. Therefore, this factor is expected to accelerate the growth of the market.
  • Increasing Demand from Business Operations - Significant changes in company operations worldwide have been brought about by the improvement of communications and information technology. A wide range of government and public sector organizations use key information infrastructure services. For instance, Amazon Web Services (AWS) is launching a new cloud service called the AWS European Sovereign Cloud. This cloud service is designed specifically to help public sector customers and those in highly regulated industries meet the most stringent regulatory data residency and operational requirements in Europe. In addition, enterprises are becoming more and more interested in outsourcing services to meet the growing demand for their activities. In response to increasing demand for over-the-top cloud services, increased enterprise awareness of telecom cloud, and a reduction in administration and operating costs, the global telecom cloud market is expected to develop.
  • Increased Data Consumption - In particular due to increased data demand, the market for telecommunications cloud services is rapidly developing. For instance, the number of internet users around the world has reached 5.3 billion by 2023, meaning that about two-thirds of the population has access to the Internet.  Due to the widespread adoption of Digital Technologies, including cloud computing and the Internet of Things, there has been a significant increase in data traffic leading to an increasing number of telecommunications services that use Cloud Services. The market is undergoing a paradigm shift to cloud solutions as businesses and individuals look for more agile, flexible, safe & cost-effective ways of storing data.


  • Growing Concerns Regarding Data Security - The risk of cybersecurity could increase as the telecommunications sector expands its cloud services. For suppliers and operators, this increases the complexity. This technology contains strong data that could be damaged by a single error in the safety system. Therefore, the industries need to put in place comprehensive solutions and monitor all alerts with care. Global risks are increasing, such as internal threats, Third Party Risks, and so on. For instance, in the first half of 2022, there has been a 48% increase in phish attacks, with 11,395 cases costing businesses over USD 13.4 million. Therefore, the increase in threats may hinder the growth of the market.
  • Increased Risk of Information Loss may Hamper the Growth of the Market
  • Deployment Location and Interoperability Issues may Impede the Market Growth
