The cloud office collaboration productivity applications market was valued at $3.9 billion in 2011 and has been forecast to hit $21.6 billion by 2018.

Global markets are set to achieve steady growth as mobile devices become the standard for client computing.

Growth within the market is set to be driven by enterprises noticing that there is a less expensive way to get productivity tools to users than through server licensing of Microsoft Office and Microsoft Exchange. Cloud delivery of systems in a shared workload environment is part of the cloud computing business model.

The cloud office collaboration productivity applications market is set to become a disruptive technology, as it allows companies to achieve cost flexibility, business scalability, market adaptability, masking complexity, context driven initiatives, and provide ecosystem connectivity.

Asia-Pacific represents the most prominent regional market for cloud office collaboration productivity applications, with annual revenue from the region averaging at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of approximately 32.05% between 2009 and 2018.

Thanks to robust economic development in emerging markets such as China and India, rapid industrialization, increasing shift of manufacturing and corporate activity from developed markets from developing countries, and subsequent boom in the enterprise segment in the region are the primary factors driving demand for cloud based office productivity software in the region.
