According to International Data Corporation, the consumption of suppliers of servers, storage solutions and network equipment and software accounted for 44% of sales in 2018. These investments are expected to increase by an average of 6% per year and represent $426 billion over the next three years. Investments by cloud and digital service providers are expected to grow the most to reach $105 billion (+9% per year on average). Purchases by providers of hosting and colocation services amounted to $67 billion, representing an average annual growth rate of 7%.
However, there is a wide disparity between regions of the world. Indeed, if the share of these investments in the United States should increase to 47% in 2022 (compared to 44% today), Western Europe's share will not change and will remain at 12%.
