The global cloud-based VDI market is projected to witness substantial growth over the forecast period owing to increasing need for fast and reliable computing solutions. This has also instigated companies to opt and centralize their end-user data and applications in order to provide enhanced backup and reliable computing solutions to customers. The market is poised for growth attributing to the rising need for companies to control their operational expenses. In addition, increasing end-user demand for remote access may catapult demand over the next few years. Evolving end-user computing strategies is also estimated to be an emerging market trend.
A cloud-based VDI solution is a computing model where an end-user’s system can access all the essential files and data virtually in spite of being separated from the physical IT infrastructure. The computing model uses a cloud-based storage space wherein the system data and applications get stored in the data center of a primary cloud service provider where the end-users can access the data through login credentials. The VDI layer acts as an intermediary between backend and end-user applications. It controls the transfer of data and the execution of applications.
VDI has been considered expensive, however, the surge of cloud computing offers a managed and cost-effective platform that is anticipated to revolutionize the structure of enterprise IT. VDI facilitates the information flow amongst corporate offices along with enhancing the productivity of employees working from mobile enterprise devices including laptops, tablet computers and smartphones which is expected to positively elevate cloud-based VDI market growth.
Increasing demand for virtualization is projected to drive the market over the forecast period. Virtualized computing infrastructure helps in reducing service delivery and application costs as the computing applications are hosted centrally at the service-end of the service provider which can be customized as per the demand of the end-user systems.
Rise in complexities related to IT landscape along with increasing demand for cloud services is projected to accentuate market growth over the next six years. Further, the rising demand for support of mobile devices owing to the organizational shift towards a mobile workforce through Bring Your Own Devices (BYOD) policies is projected to offer lucrative growth opportunities for the market.
Rising technological advancements in mobile technology along with its increasing adoption in the enterprise segment is projected to drive the market demand over the forecast period. Additionally, growing adoption of hybrid cloud solutions owing to its high capability of offering optimized solutions in comparison with cloud-based and on-premise models is projected to elevate cloud-based VDI market growth. Increasing demand for Desktop-as-a-Service (DaaS) market is anticipated to trigger the demand.
However, requirement of high capital expenditure for setting up the infrastructure along with procurement of necessary software and application requires high initial capital expenditure which is expected to serve as a major restraint for the cloud-based VDI market. In addition, growing concerns pertaining to cyber-attacks may also pose a challenge to industry growth over the coming years.
North America holds the largest market share on account of huge industrialization. U.S. and Canada are the major contributing countries in this region owing to the emergence of various players working to establish a strong market presence. Within the Asia-Pacific regions, China is expected to witness significant market development throughout the forecast period. Other emerging countries such as India and Australia also offer optimum potential for development of the cloud-based VDI market.
Key players in the industry include Citrix Systems, VMware, Moka5, Netelligent, Virtual Bridge, Secure Online Desktop, tuCloud, Red Hat, Ericom Software, WorldDesk, Microsoft, Amazon and Cisco Systems. Companies emphasize on scaling up and customizing their offerings as per user demand in order to achieve competitive advantage and improve market share.
