Advancements in virtualization technologies coupled with the rising adoption of cloud computing will fuel market demand for VDI Solutions

Global market research and consulting service provider, Global Market Insights Inc., has published a study that states the virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) market is poised to expand at more than 20% CAGR by 2028.

This will largely be driven by the extensive adoption of mobile devices for enterprise computing and increased demand from end users for the personalized configuration requirements of virtual desktops.

In terms of dollars and cents, the virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) market size is expected to record a valuation of USD 55 billion by 2028. 

This is something worth noting because as network performance becomes increasingly improved with the introduction of software-defined networking and 5G networks, virtual desktop solutions are expected to match – and in some instances surpass – the performance of physical PCs.

Cloud is driving this market forward

The proliferation of cloud computing services and solutions, coupled with recent advancements and enhancements in virtualization technologies will further fuel VDI market expansion. 

For those unfamiliar, VDI infrastructure has hybrid & multi-cloud deployment options along with rapid provisioning capabilities. The increased demand to manage the accessibility of multiple software and applications over digital workspaces with greater ease and efficiency can be aptly addressed by deploying Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) platforms.

There’s also an increased need for personalized configuration requirements

The enterprise-wide emphasis on teleworking, coupled with enterprise workforce mobility, is enabling this market's technological development. And with greater acceptance of the work-from-anywhere lifestyle among modern enterprises, there has been an increased need for improved solutions as it relates to personalized configuration requirements of virtual desktops.

Persistent VDI addresses the demand from end users for maintaining, storing, and configuring enterprise resources as per personal necessities. That’s because it features sophisticated logic drives for storage applications—something that is not available with non-persistent VDI. 

What about hardware?

During this time, the hardware segment in the virtual desktop infrastructure market is projected to observe a 18% CAGR by 2028.  Here, the hardware components used in VDI are categorized as server-side and client-side. The client-side hardware consists of end-user computing devices such as laptops, smartphones, and PCs. Worth noting is the fact that server-side hardware components are utilized in accordance with management capabilities to handle multiple VDI users.

VDI will grow considerably in North America

North America looks poised to hold approximately 30% of the virtual desktop infrastructure market share by 2028. This will be driven by the increased demand for a flexible work environment and penetration of cloud technologies across the region. 

An aggressive growth strategy

The market is witnessing strategic partnerships between enterprises to develop cross-platform virtual desktop infrastructure capabilities for diverse end users. It would behoove the modern solution provider to become familiar with this market and its potential to support customer needs that are looking to adopt or otherwise further enhance a telework strategy.
