Operating Systems & Productivity Software Publishing in the US

Over the five years to 2019, computer products have become a more ubiquitous feature of daily life, propelling the Operating Systems and Productivity Software Publishing industry to new heights. Operating systems are necessary for computer usability and industry products come preinstalled on most new computers. As a result, industry revenue is highly correlated with new computer sales. Over the past five years, total industry revenue grew as sales to both consumers and businesses increased, driven by strong corporate profit and rising disposable income levels. The large-scale adoption of cloud computing has been a significant development in the industry. As more businesses store and access data and software through the internet, demand for servers to host and manage this information has risen. The software market is continually evolving, with updates and new releases stimulating consistent demand for industry products. Moreover, high corporate profit will likely drive investment in computers and productivity software over the five years to 2024, which will benefit the industry. Nonetheless, growth in private investment in computers and software is anticipated to slow over the next five years.

Companies in this industry develop and publish operating systems and productivity software for computers and servers. An operating system is the interface with which computer users interact; productivity software includes basic applications, such as word processors, spreadsheets and slideshow creation tools. Companies may also generate revenue from tech support and software resales. This industry does not include computer hardware manufacturing or mobile phone operating system publishing.

This report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecasts, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
