Market overview of the global VDI market

Technavio’s market research analyst predicts the global VDI market to account for a CAGR of more than 27% during the forecast period. One of the major drivers supporting the growth of the market is the increasing adoption of BYOD, which is an emerging concept believed to make employees more productive. Moreover, centralized data stored on the main server provides better computing experiences to the employees and security of data to the organization, as the user access to VDI images in a networked storage environment is via browsers or apps on end-user devices. Therefore, factors such as convenience and better flexibility are leading to the adoption of virtualization, which will help increase the demand for VDI shortly.

The use of cloud-based virtualization is also gaining popularity, which is another significant trend propelling the growth of the market. The adoption of cloud services has been increasing in the virtualization space because of the capability and efficiency that cloud services offer. Moreover, there has been an increasing demand for cloud-based application and services due to increased data bandwidth support from communication service providers and the growing adoption of handheld devices for enterprise computing.
