Drastic Shift to Remote Working Practice to Propel the Growth amid Pandemic

The COVID-19 pandemic has boosted the adoption of remote desktop software. The growing remote work commitments are driving industries to use digital software in order to stay in business. Industries across the world are adopting and encouraging remote desktop software to maintain social distance norms.

The remote desktop software solutions have formerly supported large-scale organizations to provide work-from-home facilities to employees. Meanwhile, the COVID-19 outbreak forced several companies to allow their employees to work remotely from home to continue business operations. This has propelled the demand for the market across organizations. Since March 2020, remote software providers have witnessed a spike in demand for remote working. For instance, TeamViewer Group showed 75% growth in adoption for its remote software solution in the first quarter of 2020 owing to rapid shifting towards work from home practice.

Considering the COVID-19 situations, software solution providers are offering secured remote working management solutions to facilitate an office environment for remotely working employees. Major organizations, including LinkedIn, Meta (Facebook LLC), Google LLC, Microsoft Corporation, and others have extended their work-from-home practice for employees’ safety. Thus, the COVID-19 outbreak has surged the demand for the software. Also, leading organizations are adopting the software for communicating and collaborating with their team. For instance,

  • In the first quarter of 2020, Philips integrated with the TeamViewer Host app for every team member’s screen, which provides permanent remote access to each device. Phillip’s clients can access and control the remote device for executing any task from anywhere across the globe.

Growing Remote Learning Practices to Drive Software Market Growth

Distance education and e-learning are increasing in popularity and substantial demand with the expansion and development of technology. Distance learning is used by educational universities, institutes, and education systems to provide maximum reach for their student base across several nations. Similarly, the institutes and universities are also witnessing the increasing adoption of distance learning enrolment around the globe. According to We Forum Organizations, in 2020, globally, an estimated over 1.2 billion children from 186 countries affected were being out of the classroom. Thus, education is shifted to an online learning platform which propelled the demand for software for teachers and students across the globe.

In 2019, global Edu-tech investments reached around USD 18.66 billion as per the We Forum Organization. Even after COVID-19, there has been high adoption and growth of remote software technology in the education sector. According to the We Forum Organization Report, the overall edu-tech market of online education is expected to reach USD 350 billion by 2025.

Remote learning provides flexibility in the learning process and provides teaching experiences and advanced learning. The growing popularity of e-learning and distance learning education is driving the demand for the market to support the education providers in assisting the students. Further, with growing remote learning adoption, the software providers have launched advanced remote desktop solutions to support distance learning. For instance,

  • In August 2020, Splashtop Inc. launched a ‘remote labs product’ to simplify remote access for computer laboratories at schools and universities. Thus, the growing adoption and demand for desktop software in e-learning and distance learning are expected to fuel the need for the software.


Adoption of Bring Your Own Device Policy to Drive the Market Growth

Bring your own device (BYOD) policy is witnessing growing implementation across the industries owing to the benefits, such as team member satisfaction, flexible work time, and enhanced security. According to the Cyber Talk Organization Report in 2020, around 67% of the companies around the globe have endorsed BYOD strategy. Also, an estimated 34% of the employee’s productivity has increased with BYOD devices. The BYOD offers flexibility to the employees for selecting the devices as per their choice and requirements. Hence, the remote software solution offers access to any device from any location to provide real-time access.

The end-users can access the company’s data while working from any mobile remote location. This improves business growth and employee efficiency. However, the companies are concerned about endpoint data breaches owing to the BYOD trend. This drives the demand for a cloud-based remote software solution. According to SOTI Inc. 2020, BYOD increases the popularity of cloud-based remote access software due to increased security risk.


Slow Internet Network and Downtime to Obstruct Market Growth

The remote desktop software requires resilient internet connections from both ends, from the client’s and the server’s sides to work remotely. The minor internet connection issue may hinder the connectivity and affect the ongoing activities. Thus, for proper workflow and remote work management, robust internet connectivity is required. Similarly, inconsistency and low-performance service can cause the total stoppage of the systems, which may hinder the market growth.

During downtime or low internet connection, the network remains inaccessible until the required service is not provided. This can hamper business operations and might cost a considerable amount for the organizations. Thus, inefficient internet connectivity and network service might inhibit the demand for the remote desktop software market growth.
