The global remote desktop software market size was valued at USD 2.83 billion in 2023 and is projected to grow from USD 3.33 billion in 2024 to USD 12.28 billion by 2032, exhibiting a CAGR of 17.7% during the forecast period (2024-2032).

Remote desktop software allows a local operator to have full access to the desktop ecosystem and the properties of a remote computer. Usually, retrieving the remote desktop from a computer requires software to be deployed and arranged on both the computers, as they both must be motorized on and linked to the Internet. The operator logs into the remote setup interface on the native computer, and upon verification at the remote computer, the user is granted access to its desktop environment.

The market is witnessing significant growth owing to the increasing adoption of work-from-home practices. The software can offer real-time access to company data from remote locations. The increasing adoption of “bring your own device” policies in enterprises has increased the demand for remote access software. The software is in high demand in industries such as healthcare, education, IT, and telecom due to its ability to provide work flexibility. Moreover, the outbreak of the pandemic increased demand for the software. Major players in the market are adopting various strategies such as mergers, acquisitions, collaborations, and partnerships. For instance: 

In January 2021, TeamViewer acquired Xaleon, the Austrian provider of customer engagement software. Xaleon’s product comes with GDPR-compliant for small screen sharing web sessions that work without the need to install and transfer users’ data.

The increasing mandate to work remotely due to the COVID-19 pandemic forced industries to use digital software to keep their business running, and this promoted remote desktop software to comply with social distancing norms. Large-scale organizations adopt remote desktop software to provide work-from-home facilities to employees. This has increased the demand for this type of software among organizations. For instance, TeamViewer Group stated that the adoption of remote software solutions increased by 75% in Q1 2020 as companies rapidly shifted towards remote working practices. Therefore, the pandemic has increased the demand for the software.

Remote Desktop Software Market Trends

Growing Remote Learning Practices to Drive Remote Desktop 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, 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 education providers in assisting students. Further, with growing remote learning adoption, software providers have launched advanced remote desktop solutions to support distance learning. For instance,

  • August 2021 – Teradici, the remote computing software solutions provider, launched Remote macOS to access devices in Apple’s Mac laptops and desktops. In July 2021, HP Inc. acquired Teradici, a remote computing vendor that supports the remote accessibility of Apple’s Mac devices.

Remote Desktop Software Market Growth Factors

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

The Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) policy is witnessing growing implementation across industries owing to its advantages, such as flexible teamwork time, member satisfaction, and enhanced security. According to the Cyber Talk Organization Report in 2020, around 67% of companies around the globe have endorsed the BYOD strategy. Also, an estimated 34% of employees' productivity has increased with BYOD devices. The BYOD offers flexibility to employees in selecting the devices as per their choice and requirements. Hence, the solution offers access to any device from any location to provide real-time access.

BYOD offers numerous benefits to businesses, such as minimized operational costs as enterprises do not need to purchase new devices for every team member or new carrier strategies linked with those endpoints. It also provides employees with enhanced flexibility as it allows them to leverage their preference for devices and work from anywhere at any time as per their convenience. Other benefits include higher mobility, familiarity, enhanced productivity, and many more.

The end-users can access the company’s data while working from any remote location. This improves business growth and employee efficiency. However, companies are concerned about endpoint data breaches owing to the BYOD trend. This drives the demand for cloud-based remote software solutions. 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 connectivity and affect 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 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 cost a considerable amount for the organizations. Thus, inefficient internet connectivity and network service might inhibit the demand for market growth.

Remote Desktop Software Market Segmentation Analysis

By Deployment Analysis

Rapid Shift toward Cloud Services to Propel Demand for Cloud-based Remote Desktop Software

Based on the deployment, the market is bifurcated into cloud and on-premise.

The cloud-based deployment segment is anticipated to record the highest CAGR during the forecast period. The cloud-based is gaining rapid growth as the majority of organizations are shifting toward cloud service. According to the IDC Report 2020, 56% of Indian companies are expected to seek cloud software due to the growing remote work. Also, cloud-based software offers a low maintenance cost, easy installation, and can be extended to meet increasing business requirements. This is likely to drive the demand for cloud-based remote desktop tools.

The on-premises software is placed locally on the organization’s server and offers more security and direct control over the configuration and management. Organizations and enterprises with a large number of desktops and network systems are likely to implement on-premises software. However, the high maintenance cost and regular upgrades are compelling the organizations to search for other secured options.

By Enterprise Type Analysis

Work-From-Home Practice in Large Enterprises to Drive Market Growth

Based on the Enterprise Type, the market is categorized into small & medium enterprises and large enterprises.

The small and medium enterprises segment is expected to record a leading CAGR during the forecast period due to the increasing demand for work-from-home solutions. Small desktop tools support SMEs to reduce the additional cost associated with power & water consumption, ample space, office maintenance, and other required expenses.

The large enterprises segment accounted for the highest market share in 2023 owing to the surge in the Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) policy. Furthermore, to boost employee efficiency and productivity, large enterprises offer work-from-home facilities to their employees, strengthening the demand for software.
