The global cloud services brokerage (CSB) market is expected to register a CAGR of 16.4% during the forecast period to reach USD 14.83 billion by 2024.
An increasing number of enterprises are adopting cloud technology. The IT teams of the companies are required to perform the role of enabling the enterprise’s use of cloud services. Cloud services brokerage is an IT role and business model in which an enterprise adds value to one or more (public or private) cloud services via three primary roles—aggregation, integration, and customization brokerage. A cloud service broker offers a package of technology, people, and methodologies to implement and manage CSB-related projects. The IT companies and service providers are able to unify the private and public cloud environment for their employees, customers and through their channels. Thus, the increase in the adoption of hybrid IT and multi-cloud management is a factor which drives the growth of this market. Along with this, the need for performance-oriented and cost-effective brokerage solutions is another driving factor for this market. However, the issues related to regulatory compliances are expected to limit market growth during the forecast period. Growing adoption of CSB in the small and medium enterprise (SME) across verticals offers lucrative opportunities to the key providers of CSB in the global market. Furthermore, the lack of awareness regarding CSB services and platforms is expected to be a challenge for the growth of the market.
