Virtual Desktop Infrastructure Market Continues to Grow


With hybrid workplaces and remote employees having become the new norm across workplaces, there’s never been a more important time for Virtual Desktop Infrastructure to shine. The technology makes it possible for businesses to meet the demands of today’s workers while maintaining security and boosting efficiency.

As this new way of working grows across the globe, the VDI market is also expected to grow. A new report from Straits Research says the Virtual Desktop Infrastructure market size will reach $57 billion  by 2030.

As a modern-workplace solution, virtual desktops offer a more seamless and collaborative working environment for employees located anywhere. Workers have access to all their apps, files, data, and communications with the same interface and experience regardless of where they work on any given day.

Another factor driving the uptick in VDI adoption is the mobile business and the combination of BYOD and corporate-owned, personally enabled devices. While enterprise IT operations have been using VDI for a while, there is a growth opportunity happening with SMEs who are now also starting to adopt the technologies in hopes of improving security and meeting the needs of hybrid workers.

North America has the largest share of the global virtual desktop infrastructure market. It is expected to continue leading the charge with new offerings and players entering the market and expansion into the industrial sector. Europe was found to have the second largest share globally as more smartphones are being used and bring your own device increases in the region.
