The market is growing with the rising adoption of mobile-related software among various sectors such as BFSI and IT & telecommunication. This software includes security management, app management, and others. End-use organizations deploy this software to ensure that information is retrieved and stored safely.

Furthermore, to increase their profitability across different geographies, leading competitors utilize various methods such as product launches, mergers, and acquisitions. For instance,

  • In December 2020, Google LLC launched "Android enterprise essentials," a mobile management and security solution for small and medium-sized businesses. The new service offers the elements of mobile device management and capabilities that allow small firms to mandate their staff to use a lock screen and encryption to safeguard company data.


Rising Demand for Mobile Device Management Across Healthcare and Other Industries to Aid Growth

The global impact of the COVID-19 pandemic and the economic consequences have made it difficult for market participants to respond. According to the International Data Corporation (IDC), the global market for I.T. and business outsourcing services was expected to decline by 1.1% in 2020 and rise slightly over 1% in 2021.

The COVID-19 pandemic has forced several organizations to completely shift their work from office to work from home. For instance,

  • According to 2021 Talent Works survey of the U.S., 90% of senior executives plan to work from home.

  • In May 2020, remote workers scored 75 out of 100 compared to 71 for in-office workers as per the workforce happiness index.

  • In 2020, according to CyberEdge “COVID-19 impact report”, 52% of organizations are investing in MDM products due to remote working.

An increased work from home strategy also increases the threat of regulatory shortages and places sensitive data at risk. Companies use MDM solutions to improve control and security features to prevent risk and adopt security-related approaches in various sectors. This factor delivers a significant opportunity for the market. For instance,

  • In August 2020, Mobile Guardian, a provider of MDM solutions in education, launched the COVID-19 relief grant for K-12 schools in the U.S. The USD 1 million software funding helps schools with online student safety, virtual classroom administration, and cloud-based device software maintenance for iOS, Android, ChromeOS, and macOS devices both on and off-campus.

Increased Adoption of Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) in Various Industries to Drive Market

The transition of organizations' focus from traditional work to the BYOD concept is considered as one of the emerging trends. As work from home grows enormously, it becomes more difficult for firms to secure a corporate network. As a result, companies are turning to adopt bring your own device concept. Large organizations across industries, including government, healthcare, retail, and others are implementing BYOD in various business applications. This concept is used by organizations to increase production efficiency and reduce the cost of hardware maintenance and equipment purchase. Players are focused on advanced product launches to expand their geographical presence worldwide. For instance,

  • In October 2020, Crestron Electronics, Inc. launched the "Crestron One" app with mobile room control that allows complete monitoring from any personal device. Crestron ONE enables touchless room management by offering employee navigation, room automation, and content sharing from their mobile device.


Rising Adoption of Mobility Culture Among Organizations to Aid Market Growth

One of the major driving forces behind this culture is that personal devices frequently have more advanced functionality than company-owned devices and allow work to be done at any time and from any location. Several individuals’ initial choice of technology at work has shifted to smartphones and tablets. While the mobility environment is becoming more prevalent in academic and corporate sectors, it also requires improved data and content security to prevent the abuse of business-critical information. As a result, enterprises are compelled to implement mobile security protocols such as MDM. IT professionals can now manage Chromebooks, smartphones, tablets, and kiosk devices all from one platform. For instance,

  • According to the GSMA's mobile economy 2021 report, approximately 5.2 billion users subscribed to mobile services in 2020, with smartphones accounting for 65% of interconnection. This number is expected to rise to approximately 5.8 billion by 2025, with smartphones accounting for 80% of connections.


High Implementation Cost for MDM Solution in SMEs and Security Issues to Restrict Market Growth

High implementation costs of MDM solutions cause budget constraints in small and medium-sized enterprises that cannot provide an effective MDM solution and limit the mobile device management market growth. Furthermore, there are a variety of costs involved with MDM services, such as integration, consultancy, maintenance, installation, upgrades, among others, which restrict the market expansion.

Additionally, increasing the number of devices and endpoints in a company also increases the number of ways for hackers to attack such endpoints and devices. The data center is the starting place for a mobile security strategy. Hackers attempt to get access to the network to encrypt important corporate data. Even firms with tight security and compliance rules for confidential documents don't always have the same severe security protocols for mobile devices. This is another factor that is hampering the market growth.
