Boom In Cloud Jobs: 20 Lakh Indians Can Get Jobs In Cloud Technologies In Next 4 Yrs
India has the potential to become the world’s second-largest cloud talent hub, according to a Nasscom research released on Monday.
“India has the potential to become the world’s 2nd largest cloud talent hub with the combined effort of government bodies, education and skilling organisations and technology providers,” it mentioned.
“By 2025, India would have an estimated 1.4-1.5 million cloud professionals (baseline growth). However, with an estimated demand for over 2 million professionals by 2025, India could reach 1.7-1.8 million cloud talent pool with a fairly aggressive skilling roadmap,” the report titled ‘Cloud Skills: Powering India’s Digital DNA’ said.
India’s Cloud Market
By 2022, India’s cloud market is expected to reach USD 5.6 billion!
And if we consider the growth of a 26 per cent year-on-year growth, this is likely to increase tremendously as cloud use spreads across industries.
“For India to carve itself a unique identity as a global hub for cloud solutions, a concentrated public-private partnership, and large-scale skilling is the key,” said Debjani Ghosh, President, Nasscom.
“India is well placed to do this by tapping into the adjacent pool of installed base and also by targeting fresh talent from universities,” the report said.

“Nasscom has set up its FutureSkills PRIME initiative in partnership with MeitY to upskill talent in emerging technologies and cloud skills are a key area of focus on this platform,” she added.
“Cloud adoption has witnessed an accelerated adoption during the pandemic as enterprises focused on building hybrid work models, collaboration infrastructure and business continuity.
“Cloud has moved from being a relative back-end to a front-end (business-facing) technology, enabling on-demand access to resources,”
Nasscom President Debjani Ghosh said.
