Here’s where the top five cloud market share leaders rank on a global basis, including Amazon, Alibaba, Google, IBM and Microsoft.

No. 5: IBM (Kyndryl)

Q2 2022 Market Share: 4 Percent

Q2 2021 Market Share: 4 Percent

Q2 2020 Market Share: 5 Percent

Kyndryl is the former managed infrastructure business of IBM that was spun out of IBM in November, although Synergy still counts IBM and Kyndryl cloud services revenue together as the two are still somewhat intertwined.

IBM/Kyndryl won approximately 4 percent of the cloud infrastructure services market in the second quarter of 2022, taking the No. 5 ranking spot on a worldwide basis.

IBM’s cloud market share has been slowly declining over the past four years. For example, in second quarter 2018, the company’s worldwide cloud services market share was around 7 percent.

When Kyndryl spun out of Big Blue less than a year ago, it became a global solution provider with about 90,000 employees and $19 billion in revenue. The company has since formed strategic partnerships with AWS, Microsoft Azure and Google Cloud.
