The global desktop virtualization market in manufacturing is expected to register a CAGR of 10.59% over the forecast period (2018-2023). The ability to reduce complexity and deliver apps to mobile users is motivating desktop virtualization adoption in manufacturing, and advancements in management and storage make VDI a more viable option. Businesses are expected to grow organically upon productivity and capacity addition, besides VDI’s existing capabilities or better allocation of resources toward the corporate objective. For instance, in manufacturing, VDIs can aid adding of new facilities, increase in floor space, or hiring of employees at a new location or an existing location to fulfill the job needs. Desktop virtualization leads to increased user satisfaction, especially as employees can solve most of the computing problems with a reboot, and provides a better computing experience. With cloud computing transforming manufacturing, desktop virtualization is expected to enable this transition. It helps meet the needs of the users more effectively and securely.
Cloud computing is being used by several organizations to reduce costs and gain access to data and applications that are not installed in the computers or servers. Cloud has emerged as an infrastructure that can enable rapid delivery of computing resources as a utility in a dynamically scalable and virtual manner. Cloud computing is driving businesses to digitally transform and manufacturers are allocating more of their IT spending towards cloud. Today, 85% of enterprises have a multi-cloud strategy, up from 82% in 2016. The higher cloud adoption rate and the inclination of enterprises towards deploying desktops on cloud are driving the usage of desktop virtualization.
HVD is used to connect applications to the data stored on remote servers. The (cloud) service provider is held responsible for data storage, backup, upgrade, and security. Features like high availability and power optimization are quite common across cloud-based products and services in the market. The competitors are focused on incorporating Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) with their cloud workspace, expanding the capabilities of performance monitoring, improving client experience with device performance, and identifying integration along with delivery of VDI on converged as well as hyper-converged infrastructure platforms.
North America holds the major share of the market. The IT & telecommunications industry in the region is the largest among other regional markets. Organizations in this industry in North America are early adopters of the desktop virtualization, as it helps the vendors to offer tailor-made solutions for the industry. With established presence and more penetration of the organizations, they provide high-quality services to the users in the region to survive competition. The presence of the major companies in the United States has led to the setting up of new workspaces in Canada due to the proximity to the developed counterpart and emphasis on installing eco-friendly and energy-saving practices. This has further bolstered the growth of the market across the demographic.
