Asia Pacific SMB cloud services market opportunity will reach US$19.8 billion in 2015, says the Parallels Asia-Pacific SMB Cloud Insights report.
The huge growth will likely be due to the fact that a majority of the SMBs across Asia-Pacific region prefer to go straight to the cloud, rather than installing in-house IT solutions. China and India with 3.3 million and 3.5 million SMBs respectively are expected to be the front-runners for cloud services in Asia Pacific.
The Infographic below summarizes the key findings of the report. However, country specific findings for Asia-Pacific are:
