Data Protection as a Service (DPaaS) Market Highlights

The rise in demand for software-defined data centers and virtualized infrastructure components to deliver services, along with the advent of cloud computing, has increased the need for data protection in today's business environment. The adoption of data protection as a service is crucial and is further boosting market growth because the growing acceptance of the internet of things has opened the door for more cybercrimes. The surging demand for backups and archives, cloud-based disaster recovery, and backup for virtual machines are all factors driving the market for data protection as a service (DPaaS). These factors are also driving enterprise digitalization, improving IT infrastructure, and extensive research and development activities.

Company continuity in the wake of the COVID-19 outburst will be dependent on technology, including IT resilience, the demand for remote workforces, and the necessity to reinvent business models. As a result, there is a high demand for an edge-to-cloud platform as a service that promotes data security, recovery, and backup, fueling the expansion of the DPaaS market.

Market Segmentation

Insight by Service Type

Based on service type, the market is categorized into backup as a service (BaaS), storage as a service, and disaster recovery as a service (DRaaS). Due to the increasing demand for data security and privacy across all data centers, as well as the resulting development in benefits provided by DRaaS to various business organizations, it is predicted that the demand for DRaaS would have the highest growth among these categories throughout the projection period. Due to the necessity for remote hardware infrastructure and an increase in the need for recovery solutions among employees, the COVID-19 pandemic has raised the demand for DRaaS solutions. Thus, the development of the global DPaaS market is being greatly aided by this category.

Insight by Deployment Type

The global DPaaS market is divided into private, public, and hybrid clouds, depending on the type of deployment. The hybrid cloud category is anticipated to experience the quickest growth among all of these categories during the forecast period, as it is projected to offer a flexible and practical platform to enable cost-effective workload management and more concern for security and privacy.

Because they lack a high-compute local IT infrastructure to share and store data, small and medium-sized organizations favor cost-effective deployment alternatives. Further, SMEs focusing to enter this industry are increasing the threat of data theft, the requirement for long-term data preservation, and the demand for effective backup services.

Insight by End User

The global DPaaS market is categorized into the following end-user categories: telecom & IT, energy & utilities, manufacturing, BFSI, retail, government & public sector, healthcare, and others. Since there is a high requirement for security, data backup, and compliance, the telecom & IT category is predicted to experience the quickest growth throughout the forecast period. As a result, the adoption of DPaaS in the telecom and IT sector enables businesses to access data quickly and securely while also enhancing scalability.
