Demand for the Internet Hosting Services industry grew substantially over the past five years due to high demand from companies hoping to expand their web presence. This trend is expected to continue in the five years to 2020. As the technology required to process and host websites becomes increasingly complex, the level of expertise needed to effectively manage large data centers will increase. Small and medium-sized businesses will require more complex websites that serve both desktop, mobile and tablet interfaces, meaning they are likely to require value-added website design and management services from industry operators in addition to web hosting.
This industry provides internet hosting services to third parties. These services most commonly take the form of website hosting, where industry operators provide leased server space and internet connectivity to individuals and organizations to make their websites accessible over the internet. Operators also provide application-specific services, such as email application hosting and game hosting.
This report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecasts, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
