Worth $16.2 billion, the global IaaS market maintained steady growth at 32% (33% in 2014) in 2015 with cloud host accounting for over 85% of the market share as the main product, which is estimated to establish a lasting, slightly declining growth in coming years.

Application infrastructure and middleware service accounted for 54% of the market, and database service reached $170 million with a 30% increase which is expected to continue in the next few years, far in excess of application development (11.9%) and application infrastructure & middleware (16.5%).
