Desktop virtualization delivers desktops and applications as a hosted service that is centrally managed from a data center. With desktop virtualization, organizations can centrally manage virtual desktops and applications while providing end users with a full desktop experience from any device.
The global Desktop Virtualization Market is estimated to be valued at US$ 12.3 Bn in 2023 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 10% over the forecast period 2023 to 2030, as highlighted in a new report published by Coherent Market Insights.
Market key trends:
One of the major trends in the desktop virtualization market is the rising adoption of cloud desktop infrastructure. Cloud desktop infrastructure (CDI) is a type of desktop virtualization where desktop operating systems and associated applications are delivered to end-users via a cloud-based model rather than being installed locally on individual devices. CDI provides businesses the benefits of desktop virtualization including centralized management while alleviating the need to invest in expensive local infrastructure. This has significantly driven the adoption of cloud-based desktop virtualization solutions across various industry verticals globally.
Strength: Desktop virtualization offers various benefits such as cost reduction, centralized management and enhanced security which are the key strengths. It reduces hardware and maintenance costs.
Weakness: Initial set up and deployment costs of desktop virtualization can be high. Lack of awareness may also limit the adoption of this technology.
Opportunity: Growing trend of bringing your own device (BYOD) and work from home is resulting in increased demand for desktop virtualization. It allows remote access which has become more important in today’s digital age.
Threats: Security issues related to virtual desktop infrastructure and dependency on reliable network connectivity are major threats. Downtime of virtual systems can impact user productivity.
The Global Desktop Virtualization Market Size is expected to witness high growth, exhibiting a CAGR of 10.% over the forecast period, due to increasing adoption of digital transformation strategies by enterprises.
North America dominates the global desktop virtualization market holding the largest market share, primarily due to widespread awareness and early adoption of virtualization technologies. Asia Pacific is expected to grow at the fastest rate owing to rapid digitalization and rising importance of mobility solutions across industries in developing countries of the region.
Key players operating in the Desktop Virtualization market are Citrix systems (US), VMware (US), Microsoft (US), Cisco Systems (US), Oracle (US), IBM (US), Huawei (China), Kyndryl Holdings (US). Desktop virtualization technology allows enterprises to reduce hardware procurement and maintenance costs through centralized management of virtual desktops. It also improves security capabilities and provides flexibility in terms of remote access to desktops.
