AWS leads the Public Cloud Market with 40% share in all major regions

AWS leads the Public Cloud Market with 40% share in all major regions

Amazon Web Services (AWS) accounts for almost 40% of the public cloud market in Q1 this year.
Microsoft Azure, Google GCP and Amazon Web Services (AWS) collectively account for well over 60%, claims Synergy Research Group's latest report.

Public cloud infrastructure services market has two major and important segments viz. public Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) and Platform as a Service (PaaS). These two segments drive the majority of the revenue. Remaining pie of the revenue is coming from managed or hosting cloud service providers.

In terms of revenue from public Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) and Platform as a Service (PaaS), AWS is a clear leader in all four major regions the world. Microsoft is ranked second in three of the four regions, and Google is ranked third in three of them.

AWS continues to lead the way in all regions, with Microsoft being the second-largest provider in three of four regions claims the Synergy Research Group.  Except for APAC, Google ranked third place by Synergy in all regions.

Alibaba is estimated to have outperformed Microsoft in APAC and it is ranked fourth worldwide.

Obviously, these rankings differ in Asia Pacific region (APAC). The major reason is the dominance of the Chinese market and local cloud providers in China. Chinese cloud company, Alibaba ranked second in the APAC region and fourth worldwide.

IBM, Salesforce, and Tencent fill out the other top five slots in the regions, the latter thanks to its position in China.
 Within the public cloud, the dominance of AWS, Microsoft, and Google is even more marked than in the larger cloud market.

The report further noted that in China specifically, the top five cloud providers are all local companies.  China now accounts for a third of the total APAC market. Market share of China with respect to APAC is increasing each quarter.

John Dinsdale, a Chief Analyst and Research Director at Synergy Research Group said, “Despite some local data sovereignty and regulatory issues, in most meaningful ways public cloud computing is essentially a global market. This is a game of scale and to be a market leader demands vast ongoing investments, a global presence, and a global brand. Of course, there will often be local issues that might enable local companies to carve out niche positions for themselves, but they will remain small local players in a specific country or sub-region. It is also true that in such cases the global leaders can usually deploy different local strategies to enable them to succeed. With the glaring exception of China, we view this as a truly global market.”

Synergy claimed in its April report that AWS spanned up to 33 percent of global cloud infrastructure services spend in Q1. This was well ahead of second-placed Microsoft, which saw less than 15 percent.

Year over year 51 percent of an increase in global spending is driving this growth story.
