After declining slightly in the second quarter of 2021, global cloud infrastructure sales have returned to growth. They increased by 6.6% between July and September according to the firm IDC.

According to IDC, global spending on cloud infrastructure (servers and storage) represented $18.6 billion in the third quarter of 2021, appreciating 6.6% year-on-year. At the same time, they resumed with growth interrupted between last April and June (-1.9%), after seven consecutive quarters of growth and a peak in the second quarter of 2020 (+38.4%). The non-cloud infrastructure market continued its third quarter of growth, capturing 7.3% of additional investments, or $14.6 billion.

Most of the money invested in cloud infrastructure has been directed towards shared environments. Their amount increased by 8.6% to $13 million in the third quarter of 2021. In comparison, the value of purchases dedicated to dedicated environments increased by 13.4% to $5.6 billion. IDC expects the shared cloud infrastructure segment to overtake the non-cloud infrastructure segment in value this year.

For the whole of 2021, the research firm expects the global cloud infrastructure market to reach $71.8 billion, which would represent a growth of 8.3% compared to 2020. 49 $.7 billion (+7.2%) should come from the shared cloud infrastructure segment, compared to $22.2 billion (+10.7%) for the dedicated cloud infrastructure segment. The increase in non-cloud infrastructure sales should be limited to 1.9% for $58.4 billion in revenue.

Whether intended for cloud or non-cloud environments, IT infrastructure equipment purchases are dominated by service providers. Spending by the latter in this area reached $18.9 billion (+10.2%) in the third quarter of 2021 or 57% of the market. They should represent $72.6 billion in 2021 and therefore grow by 7.4% compared to 2020.
