Growth in Percentage Terms

During the years 2020 and 2024, it is projected that the global VDI and DaaS markets will exhibit a decent Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of nearly 10%. This is a very promising growth rate given the present uncertain circumstances.

Incremental Growth

When we translate this projected growth rate between 2019 and 2024 into pure dollar terms, it comes out at around US $3.9 BN. This is strongly indicative of a major shift in spending patterns from a CapEx to OpEx costing model.

Leading Geographies

According to the projections made by Technavio, nearly 36% of this total growth will be contributed by the North American region alone. This can be attributed to the presence of strong data center infrastructures and an inclination towards DaaS and VDI solutions.

Growth Figures for 2020

Remote Work – The New Normal

According to the projections made by Technavio, remote work seems all set to becoming a mainstream trend. The researcher has also forecast that the trend of remote work is highly likely to continue even once we are past this prevailing crisis.

Projections for VDI

Technavio has forecast that the market impact of Covid-19 on the global VDI market is likely to be neutral. This is mainly due to the fact that most organizations did not have access to the required IT staff as well as virtualization professions for on premise VDI deployments.

DaaS Growth Trends

As per the research report, Desktop as a Service or DaaS is likely to exhibit stronger growth as compared to VDI. One of the major reasons behind this trend is access to some of the best third party DaaS providers like dinCloud, that offer a wide range of cloud solutions.
