Mobile Virtualization Market Trends


Enhanced data security offered by mobile virtualization is driving the market growth.


Market CAGR for mobile virtualization is driven by the growing information security as it is one of the critical concerns among organizations, as most of the threats are now more potent. The industry is vulnerable to numerous attacks ranging from the infection of corporate networks by custom malware to targeted hacking, sophisticated phishing attacks, and outright tampering with intellectual property. However, mobile virtualization solutions, including app virtualization, have evolved as an ideal way to defend organizations better for securing their information and managing risk. The centrally managed virtualized apps are generally delivered on demand as a service to any device that controls unauthorized access to its critical data and applications.


Additionally, increased digitization and automation in manufacturing have fueled Internet of Things deployments & connected devices and the need for mobile virtualization solutions. Many organizations leverage 5G capabilities with reduced latency to adopt highly automated deployments and management approaches. Besides, advances in virtualization techniques push the growth of the mobile virtualization market revenue. Also, the growing need for expanded telecom network capabilities surged the adoption of mobile virtualization on a large scale. Mobile operators are increasingly pressured to offer optimal networks for various business models through virtualization capability.


Enterprises have witnessed increased adoption of workspace-as-a-service in recent years and are expected to maintain this trend in the forthcoming years, owing to its numerous benefits, such as organizations' flexibility and reliability in various office places. In addition, organizations are adopting this technology, as it provides a virtual desktop, which enables users to access different office applications from anywhere around the world. This trend has led to a shift in preference for cloud-based "as a service" solutions over on-premise (servers or workstations) among organizations. Thus, increased adoption of WaaS among end users is expected to create significant future market opportunities.


A surge in smartphone adoption, data protection requirements, and cost savings due to mobile virtualization will contribute considerably to the growth of the mobile virtualization market over the forecast period. The emergence of workspace-as-a-service and increased adoption of cloud-based virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) are advantages that can easily lead to sidelining such hindrances observed by the mobile virtualization market, such as performance and compatibility issues of mobile virtualization.
