The global desktop virtualization market is projected to reach US$28.345 billion in 2022 increasing from US$6.276 billion in 2016 at a CAGR of 28.57%. Desktop Virtualization is a technology that separates an individual’s desktop environment from his personal computers application system. That is, hosting a virtualized desktop on a remote central server rather than hard drive of a personal computer, thus enabling flexibility and security. Other benefits of desktop virtualization include ability to run old applications, access virus-infected data, test software, upgrades, or new configurations, back up an entire operating system, create a personal cloud computer, make a backup of the server for emergencies, or reuse old hardware.

Factors driving growth in the market are increased digitization of processes, growing need for data security and applications availability, increasing competition in the IT space resulting in emphasis on cost cuts, and increasingly mobile workforce. Geographically, North America is expected to be the largest market for desktop virtualization, followed by Europe and Asia-Pacific. High growth in North America is anticipated owing to presence of large IT firms and high pace of process digitization.

The research study is based on the publisher's proprietary research model. The process involves sourcing of information from various industry experts, key professionals, decision-makers and various other stakeholders along with the validation of the responses received from the vast in-house database and premium paid databases. Publicly available sources were also taken into consideration for the final market estimates and forecast for the segments and sub-segments.

The first phase of the research process is the identification of key industry leaders, experts, decision-makers and C-level executives and then conducting interviews and surveys to gain vital insights about the market. Simultaneously, extensive secondary research is done, and key secondary data is collected as part of this process. This secondary data is collected from various databases, industry journals, whitepapers, company annual reports, research publications, and other paid data sources and relevant literature. Company profiles which include strategies, new product developments, recent investments, major products and services, financials and business plans are sourced from the annual reports, SEC filings, industry associations to preserve the quality of the information being displayed. The findings from both the primary and the secondary research process combined go under further processing for market breakdown and forecasting.

The last phase is providing intelligence in the form of presentation, charts, graphics and other different formats helping the clients in a faster and efficient understanding of the market. Under this phase complete market engineering is involved which includes analyzing the collected data from different sources and existing proprietary datasets while using various data triangulation methods for market breakdown and forecasting. The publisher has developed their market forecasting methodology that, in addition to the main market values, also takes into account other macroeconomic factors (global or local) that might have some bearing on the market under study. Taking all the necessary data, a robust forecast is developed using an algorithm that involves both static (multivariate) as well as dynamic (time-series) regression analysis. Special care is taken to make sure their algorithm passes the necessary statistical tests, and the mean prediction for future years obtained is reliable with a very high confidence level. Following data validation, the analysts begin to write the report presenting insights with the help of charts, graphs, and tables.
