Purchase Report

The Global Desktop Virtualization Market was worth USD 4.98 billion in 2017, and is projected to reach USD 9.18 billion by 2023, registering a CAGR of 10.79%, during the period of 2018-2023. The scope of the report is limited to desktop delivery platform, including hosted virtual desktop (HVD), and hosted shared desktop (HSD), deployment mode, including on-premise and cloud, and end-user vertical, such as BFSI, healthcare, manufacturing, IT and telecommunication, and others. The regions considered in the scope of the report include North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and Rest of the World. The study also emphasizes the benefits of desktop virtualization in accordance with diverse industries and future prospect of the same.

Desktop virtualization is a technique to separate personal computing desktop environment from a physical machine, using the client-server model of computing. Virtualization is particularly valuable to the small and medium businesses, as it lowers the expenditure for hardware, and reduces the system administration and maintenance costs. The ability to reduce complexity, and deliver applications to mobile users, is boosting the adoption of desktop virtualization adoption in all diverse business segments. Furthermore, desktop virtualization is also expected to unlock benefits, such as reduction in operational costs, and increased user satisfaction, as it provides superior computing experience, and solves most of the complex problems. Thus, the aforementioned factors are expected to fuel the desktop virtualization market growth during the forecast period.


Growing Adoption of Cloud Computing

Cloud computing is being used by various organizations, in order to reduce operational costs, and ease the access to data and applications that are not installed on the computers or servers. Easy implementation, accessibility, and flexibility of cloud hosting are expected to drive the adoption of cloud computing by organizations. In 2017, it has been observed that around 74% of tech Chief financial officers (CFOs) opine that cloud computing will have the most measurable impact on their respective businesses, which is anticipated to propel the market growth, during the forecast period.

Cloud Deployment to Exhibit the Highest Growth

Cloud deployment includes service models, such as Desktop-as-a-Service (DaaS), Workspace-as-a-Service (WaaS), and Application/Software-as-a-Service (SaaS). Desktop virtualization is offered as a service over cloud networks, with all computing and supporting infrastructure hosted on the service provider’s side, in a cloud deployment mode, which makes the migration of data between working environments easy. In addition, companies have the option to scale up their requirements, and procure additional computing power and/or data, without the need for physical installation. This flexibility of DaaS enables better resource management.

Asia-Pacific to Witness the Highest Growth

Asia-Pacific is a hub for major IT outsourcing destinations for the major market players, across the industry verticals. Even though the desktop virtualization deployments in the region are not at par with the developed economies, there is an enormous, untapped potential in the region. The changing business models across the globe is expected to compel the organizations to shift their focus toward desktop virtualization, for increasingly efficient delivery, which in turn is likely to fuel the market in the region.
