As the cloud services market in India is expected to grow 38% in 2017 to $1.81 billion, Google is planning to double its headcount in cloud business in the country.

As per Gartner, Indian cloud market is untapped and has a potential to grow. Google wants to tap the business and fight out the competition from Amazon and Microsoft.

"We are building our go-to market, which spans across segments and industries. This year we are doubling our team here and we will probably double this again as we move forward," Mohit Pande, country head - India, Google Cloud, told ET.

Google has invested $30 billion on its cloud platform over the past three years and will be opening its first cloud region in India this year.

"India is a large market for us, also a very strategic market. We are investing a lot in India, we are opening a cloud region, we are investing in sales, marketing, customer engineering teams, professional services and partner network. We are building this ecosystem as India is a significant part of our strategy," Pande told ET.
