The cloud computing services market, which is part of the cloud-based infrastructure as a service (IaaS) segment, is the fastest-growing segment of ITO, with an estimated growth of 48.7 percent in 2012 to $5.0 billion, up from $3.4 billion in 2011. Meanwhile the application outsourcing (AO) segment is expected to reach $40.7 billion, a two-point increase from the $39.9 billion spent on AO in 2011, and data center outsourcing's (DCO) 34.5 percent representation of the entire ITO market in 2011 is expected to drop by one point in 2012.

In spite of current business slowdowns, Gartner forecasts that the ITO market in the emerging Asia/Pacific region will represent the highest growth of all regions.
