Published : 23 Sep 2021 Industry: Technology

As per Fact.MR, a market research and competitive intelligence provider, the global personal cloud market is anticipated to top US$ 220 Bn by 2031, surging at a CAGR of 40% over the next ten years.

Personal cloud, or mobile cloud, refers to a local network-attached storage (NAS) cloud facility used for storing and sharing personal or professional data, such as videos, photos, and documents. It is an assembly of digitally stored services and information that can be accessed remotely, and is commonly used by individuals, small businesses, and organizations.

Significant growth in the information technology (IT) industry across the globe, along with rapid digitization, is among the key factors driving the personal cloud market growth. Moreover, increasing adoption of cloud-based data recovery systems is providing a thrust to market expansion.

With the proliferating social media platforms, there is growing requirement for personal storage systems for storing data that can be accessed through multiple devices. In line with this, emergence of bring-your-own-devices (BYOD) and work from home (WFH) trends are also contributing to the growth of the market.

Organizations use personal cloud storage systems to promote file storage and sharing among employees and businesses. Additionally, various technological advancements and widespread adoption of Cloud as a Service (CaaS) business models are acting as other growth-inducing factors.

These innovations offer individuals and organizations enhanced flexibility, productivity, and reduced infrastructural costs. Other factors, including extensive research and development activities, along with increasing Internet penetration, especially in developing economies, are anticipated to drive the market forward at an astonishing pace.
