Remote Desktop Software Market By Deployment Type, Enterprise Size, End-Use & Region for 2020 – 2030 : Analysis and Review

Remote Desktop Software Market - Introduction

Remote desktop software refers to a feature that enables a personal computer to remotely access and run other systems. In addition to mirroring the display of the computer being accessed, the software allows users to control and administrate by using the mouse and keyboard inputs.

Remote desktops software bolsters in establishing interaction between computers, enabling users to solve several issues remotely. When given access to an expert, the software malfunctioning issues can be resolved by eliminating the need for an in-person investigation.

Along similar lines, the duplicate desktop model created using remote desktop software offers swift user support. On this premise, remote desktop software is gradually becoming mandatory in technical support applications and support staff is being trained to use the software.

Moreover, the advent of technologies such as cloud computing and increasing demand across the information technology (IT) and telecommunication sectors to monitor and control devices are expected to remain crucial growth attributes to remote desktop software management.

While IT and telecommunications sectors have always relied on computers for their day-to-day operations, in the recent past internet and computers have penetrated other industries such as manufacturing plants, automobiles, food & beverages, and healthcare. This is anticipated to further boost the adoption of software solutions, including remote desktop software.

Remote Desktop Software Market - Increasing Reliance on Computers in Healthcare

Over the years, backed by numerous technological advancements, computers have become highly affordable and are no longer limited to high-end applications. On these lines, the healthcare industry has witnessed remarkable changes in the way data management and other services are provided.

Ascribed to stringent government monitoring of patient records and data, healthcare organizations have adopted the electronic health records (ECR) accessed using cloud computing solutions. This is subsequently creating enormous revenue opportunities for providers of remote desktop software.

Remote desktop software is aiding both patients and medical professionals in viewing and updating data such as insurance information, test results, patient records, and billing information among others.

Since computing technologies minimize the possibility of human error, healthcare institutions are upgrading to IT, thereby giving a boost to the remote desktop software market.

Increasing investments to install cloud-based solutions and services to enhance patient experience with respect to billing and payment process will drive the demand for remote desktop software.

Similarly, the availability of a multitude of software with diverse features makes it ideal for adoption in different end-use industries for on- and off-site applications.

Moreover, having an advanced IT infrastructure in place has been identified as a crucial growth and branding strategy adopted by healthcare organizations and this is, in turn, transmuting into revenue to the remote desktop market.

Remote Desktop Software Market - COVID-19 Catalyzes Adoption

The unforeseen outbreak of COVID-19 has led to a paradigm shift in the working culture across all the industries worldwide. On this premise, organizations have opted for remote working and work-from-home models to keep operations intact.

Numerous organizations, including Google, Salesforce, Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) in the worst-hit nations such as the US and India have announced long-term WFH policies and are reshaping their working models to ensure the business performances unhindered. This is expected to bestow a lucrative revenue opportunity to the remote desktop software market.

During the pandemic, remote desktop software has become an integral part of the IT and support departments across organizations to swiftly resolve issues in the devices of employees by mirroring and controlling them remotely.

Furthermore, the availability of advanced features such as multi-factor authentication, screen-recording, communication tools, and the ability to access computers that are switched off, bolster in resolving complex issues and maintaining smooth workflow.

Leveraging the demand, service providers are developing software compatible with different operating systems, and enhanced data transfer capabilities to make their software an ideal virtual workspace. Likewise, market players are working on flexible service models - subscription or one-time purchase - to build and retain the consumer base.

Remote Desktop Software Market - Safety Remain Primary Concern

Remote desktop services use a virtual private network (VPN) to establish secure and encrypted connections and provide remote access to the employees of the organization. Large scale organizations have workspace intranet for the same purpose. However, the safety and privacy of using VPN have always been a subject of debate.

Although VPNs have proven efficient in providing access to internal employees, their safety remains a question with respect to identifying, controlling, and auditing third-party vendors. This is likely to challenge the adoption of remote desktop services as organizations with the resources to focus on developing their solutions instead of depending on third-party software solutions.

In a similar vein, VPN is known for being used as a tool in cyber attacks. An alert released by the US government in 2018 claimed that organizations that use remote access services including VPN are at the risk of exploitation by cybercriminals trying to gain access to data, thereby posing a great risk to confidentiality.

Likewise, any person with credentials can access any device that's connected to the same network using remote desktop software. Although desktop mirroring is useful for desktop support and helpdesk applications, they do not have the necessary security and functionality required for complex enterprise remote support such as server or application maintenance. These factors continue to challenge the adoption of remote desktop software across the world.

Remote Desktop Software Market - Region-wise Insights

Asia Pacific Remote Desktop Software Market

Asia Pacific is expected to remain the largest regional market for remote desktop software, accounting for more than 2/5th of market value with South Asia & Pacific capturing the lion's share.

Europe Remote Desktop Software Market

Akin to Asia Pacific and North America, the demand for remote desktop software is driven by the increasing inclination towards remote working culture during the pandemic.

For instance, Germany's labor ministry has been looking at initiatives to allow employees to work from home since early 2019. With the outbreak of COVID-19, the nation has prioritized the motion.

According to a recent survey conducted by the nation's labor ministry, more than 40% of employees preferred working from home. On this premise, in October 2020, the labor ministry announced that a law making working from home a legal right will soon be published.

This macro factor is expected to give a boot to solutions that bolster remote working, including remote desktop software. As more nations in Europe ponder on making WFH a norm, the demand for remote desktop solutions will prevail high in the years to come.
