Organisations are rapidly moving beyond desktop-centric workspace to a multi-device anywhere, anytime infrastructure providing remote access across length. Growing trends of remote working and BYOD policies are creating potential growth opportunities for virtual desktop services, transforming the IT infrastructure. Desktop-as-a-Service is a component of virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) where it is outsourced to and operated by a third-party through a cloud-based server. The cloud services provider hosts the infrastructure, network resources, and storage in the cloud server, streaming a virtual desktop, where a user can access the desktop’s data and applications through a web browser or other software.

Moreover, benefits such as cost-effectiveness, data control, continuous security control, and centralized administration are also expected to foster the growth of the global DaaS market. It has been projected that nearly 80% of all virtual desktops will be DaaS by 2024, up from over 30% in 2021.

However, lack of awareness regarding the benefits of DaaS is restraining the market growth. In addition to that, concerns over data privacy and security are hindering the adoption of DaaS, challenging the growth of the market further.

The market is segmented by deployment type into public cloud, private cloud, hybrid cloud, out of which, the public cloud segment is projected to hold the largest market share by growing at a rate of nearly 18%. Among other cloud services, public cloud is the most cost-effective, where services are offered to customer through a pay-as-you-go model which means there is not upfront investment to be made. The cloud service provider ensures proper management and maintenance of the system and the customer only pays for services consumed. Global public cloud DaaS spending, in 2021, crossed USD 2 Billion.

Based on enterprise size, the market is segmented into small & medium-sized enterprises and large enterprises, out of which, small & medium sized enterprises segment is anticipated to hold the largest share of the global market over the forecast period. Owing to low capital, SMEs have high device-as-a-service adoption rate to prioritize their investments by leasing hardware and associated services instead of purchasing high-cost hardware devices. This leads to higher adoption of desktop virtualisation services among SMEs.
