Further, Box’s partnership with the U.S. Department of Air Force for leveraging its platform to aid critical processes for the Air Education and Training Command and Air Combat Command remains noteworthy.

Cloud Computing Market Holds Promise

We note that the latest move poises Box well to expand presence in the booming cloud computing market.

This market is growing in recent times due to rising adoption of cloud-based solutions, and growing implementation of advanced technologies including machine learning as well as artificial intelligence.

Additionally, rising investments by the United States, the United Kingdom, China, India and other countries in various cloud-based projects are propelling this market.

As offices, schools and enterprises have been shut down due to the coronavirus pandemic, cloud computing companies are providing cost-effective and productive digital solutions to customers working from home and learning online. This is driving the market further.

According to Fortune Business Insights report, the global cloud computing market is expected to hit $792 billion in 2028 from $250 billion in 2021, progressing at a CAGR of 17.9% between 2021 and 2028.

Thus, Box remains well positioned to make the most of its efforts in this market by the abovementioned prospects.

However, rising cloud competition from players like Alphabet’s (GOOGL - Free Report) Google and Dropbox (DBX - Free Report) remains risk for the company.
