Desktop and app virtualization have gradually transitioned from a ‘one-size-fits-all’ solution to highly customized virtual machines that serve diverse end-user market needs across a multitude of operating environments. This has led to a rapid surge in the demand for VDI. The industry players are poised to develop integration capabilities to facilitate enhanced remote operation efficiencies.

Companies offering VDI solutions have leveraged the COVID-19 situation to effectively market their products through geographical expansion and by partnering with regional participants. VDI solution & service providers are witnessing a rapid increase in their sales volumes and the industry revenues, positively impacting the global VDI market.

The Russia-Ukraine war has also adversely affected the supply chain of semiconductor chips required for client and server VDI hardware. Russia manufactures several raw materials for desktop chips such as aluminum, zinc, silver, and others. As of March 2022, Russia has a control of 3% - 4% of copper, 6% - 7% aluminum and nickel, and 14% - 15% of platinum. The disruption of raw materials will positively influence the market prices of hardware components such as power regulating chips.

The virtual desktop infrastructure market is witnessing a rapid growth in the wake of the declining hardware prices including GPUs, storage, and flash memory. High-speed solid-state drives and sophisticated GPUs are helping Desktop-as-a-Service (DaaS) providers to offer near-zero latency experience on their VDI platforms. As network performance is improving rapidly with the introduction of software-defined networking and 5G networks, virtual desktop solutions are anticipated to match the performance of physical PCs, creating new growth opportunities for the market.
