The desktop virtualization market crossed US$ 11.4 billion mark in 2022 and is expected to hit US$ 27.55 billion by 2030, recording a CAGR of 11.6% during the forecast period.

Desktop virtualization market has been significantly growing with rising work-from-home trends globally.

Desktop virtualization is witnessing high demand owing to the growing adoption of work-from-home (WFH). During the pandemic, enterprises had to change their operating model drastically. With the aid of different service providers, most enterprises accelerated their digital transformation adoption to remain functional through remote operations. This resulted in heightened demand for Desktop-as-a-Service (DaaS) and Remote Desktop Services (RDS), ultimately positively impacting the desktop virtualization market. Additionally, several macroeconomic factors across the globe have created a severely hostile environment for businesses. Severe economic downturns in several countries have decreased consumer spending on discretionary or optional goods. With respect to such factors, enterprises are adopting different measures to remain competitive by reducing capital expenditure. Hence, enterprises prefer economical and flexible expenses, such as adopting desktop virtualization, while focusing on core business. It allows the enterprises to reduce the investment in IT infrastructure manifold. Such factors have also been boosting the desktop virtualization market growth.

The desktop virtualization market is segmented within the report into type, organization size, vertical, and geography. By type, the desktop virtualization market is segmented into virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI), desktop-as-a-service (DaaS), and remote desktop services (RDS). Based on organization size, the desktop virtualization market is bifurcated into large enterprises and small & medium enterprises (SMEs). By vertical, the desktop virtualization market is segmented into IT and telecom, BFSI, e-commerce & retail, healthcare, automotive, and others. Geographically, the desktop virtualization market is sub-segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, South & Central America, and Middle East & Africa.

Cloud computing is expected to empower the growth of futuristic innovations.

The desktop virtualization market deals with technology that allows the user to simulate a workstation load while accessing a desktop through a connected device. Desktop virtualization allows for separating the desktop environment from the physical device used for accessing the former. As enterprises rapidly embrace digital workspace, there is a growing demand for desktop virtualization. Public and private cloud adoption is also increasing tremendously, owing to enterprises’ higher scalability and flexibility requirements while reducing operational expenditure. Similar trends are expected further to boost the adoption of VDI, DaaS, and RDS and can be expected to continue driving desktop virtualization market growth in the future.

SMEs' rising utilization of desktop virtualization is a major factor accelerating the desktop virtualization market growth.

The desktop virtualization market revenue was predominantly generated through large enterprises. However, that scenario is changing fast. Due to the various advantages, SMEs increasingly rely on VDI, DaaS, and RDS. While it aids SMEs in decreasing capital expenditure, it allows them to focus on core competencies better. Reportedly, IT spending by SMEs has been increasing year on year. With the disruptions due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the increasing trend of WFH has been pushing the limits for SMEs. They are required to update their IT infrastructure to accommodate WFH trends. Maintaining competitiveness became the utmost priority; hence, the adoption rate of VDI, DaaS, and RDS witnessed strong growth rates to adapt to the changing circumstances. Such trends are expected to promote desktop virtualization market growth strongly.
