The virtual desktop infrastructure market in APAC is expected to grow from US$ 1,196.0 million in 2019 to US$ 4,007.2 million by 2027; it is estimated to grow at a CAGR of 16.5% from 2020 to 2027.
APAC is a technologically advanced region in virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI). Due to continuous technological developments, the advanced version of VDI is gaining momentum as it helps overcome the challenges of old VDI environments. The older version of VDI had poor data transmission efficiency that resulted in difficulties in ensuring satisfactory quality for conversations over video or audio. This is another aspect that would significantly promote the penetration of VDI in APAC in the upcoming years. APAC comprises several developing economies, such as China, India, Australia, and other southeast countries, as well as developed economies, such as Japan. More than 30% of Japanese companies have a policy of flexible working which helps promote VDI. In addition, in other countries such as Australia, companies are witnessing increase in the use of VDI services due to imprints of leading VDI providers including VMware and Citrix. This factor is expected to positively influence the demand for virtual desktop infrastructure.
In terms of deployment, the cloud segment led the virtual desktop infrastructure market in 2019. The technology sector has been witnessing a significant rise in the use of cloud-based software in recent times, as cloud-based software simplifies deployment time and significantly reduces cost of deployment. This benefit has attracted a substantial percentage of end users, and pertaining to the rising demand for cloud-based software, the majority of the VDI market players are offering cloud-based products. Moreover, the internet infrastructure has matured in developed countries and is flourishing in several developing countries, thereby allowing end users in both developed and developing countries to access the cloud-based VDI. The VDI providers are continuously investing in developing robust and secure cloud-based software with an objective to protect customer data and prevent cyber-attacks, which ultimately drives the virtual desktop infrastructure market.
