In August 2018, according to HP, the growing shift to digitalization was expected to change the way consumers communicate with businesses, and mobile devices alone will affect USD 1.4 trillion in the U.S in sales by 2021. This is reflective of the fact that there is a lucrative opportunity for PCaaS providers to take over the market. The growing trend for customers looking for technology that makes for a more engaging, interactive, and personal experience across their stores has made players search for versatile devices that are optimized for both stationary and on-the-go interactions. This is expected to fuel demand for the PCaaS market during the forecast period.
In the last few years, retail stores have switched their sales from brick-and-mortar stores to their e-commerce sites. This could have a direct effect on the PCaaS, offering revenue from this industry during the forecast period.
