Dublin, Jan. 24, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Middle East and Africa Cloud Infrastructure Services Market by Service Type (Storage as a Service, Compute as a Service, Disaster Recovery & Backup , Managed Hosting), Deployment Model, Organization Size, Vertical & Country - Forecast to 2023" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.

The Middle East and Africa (MEA) cloud infrastructure services market size is expected to grow from USD 2.80 billion in 2018 to USD 4.72 billion by 2023, at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 11.0% during the forecast period.

An increasing use of cloud-dependent technologies, such as Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) and Internet of Things (IoT), and business continuity requirements resulting in high demand for disaster recovery services are expected to fuel the growth of the cloud infrastructure services market in the MEA. Malware attacks on data in connected infrastructure is the biggest restraint for the market growth. Growth in managed IT services and telecom service providers leveraging existing infrastructure are expected to provide growth opportunities for the vendors of cloud infrastructure services.

Storage as a service is expected to hold largest market size in 2018

Storage as a service segment offers enterprises the flexibility to scale up or scale down the storage capacity depending on their business requirements. Enterprises have been rapidly adopting storage as a service, as it provides various benefits, such as easy accessibility, reliability, and backup. Enterprises that lack the budget to implement and maintain its own storage infrastructure or hardware avail this service. To address the security needs of enterprise data, cloud-based storage offers security controls to ensure that all the data is stored securely in data center facilities and is instantly available.

Private cloud deployment model is expected to grow at highest rate during the forecast period

Private cloud deployment enables the enterprises to have better control over data and reduce risks, such as data loss and issues related to regulatory compliance. Private clouds are created for specific groups or organizations that require customization and control over their data. Enterprises opt for the private deployment model, as it provides a highly secure and centralized storage infrastructure that could only be accessed by authorized users.

South Africa is expected to hold the largest market size in 2018

The largest size can be attributed to increasing government initiatives and various cloud-related developments. Also, the establishment of offices of global cloud service providers in these countries is contributing to the promotion of cloud-based services. The primary driving forces for the largest size are technological advancements, along with mandatory regulations imposed by government regulatory authorities to adopt the best-in-class technologies and standards.
