According to a research by Researchandmarkets.com, the cloud storage market size was valued at $46.12 billion in 2019 and is projected to reach $222.25 billion by 2027, growing at a CAGR of 21.9% from 2020 to 2017.
The cloud storage market is quite promising for growth-seeking investors, however, Amazon (NASDAQ: AMZN), Microsoft (NASDAQ: MSFT), and Alphabet (NASDAQ: GOOG) who have a dominating hold on the market aren’t pure cloud storage stocks.
Take Alphabet, for instance, it is heavily invested in the search engine, self-driving, and smart device market. Hence, its cloud storage proceeds along is less likely to influence its stock growth, especially when it fails to perform in other markets it is heavily involved in.
The same applies to Amazon and Microsoft.
Companies whose primary business revolves around cloud storage are most likely to see their stock grow as a direct result of their performance in the cloud storage market; it’s a no brainer.
