This IDC study provides an analysis of the worldwide virtual client computing (VCC) software market in calendar year 2017. The study includes the worldwide market revenue and growth rate for the total market in 2017 as well as revenue, market shares, and growth rates of the leading vendors (refer to Figure 1). A three-year history showing vendor revenue data and trends for 2015–2017 is also provided (refer to Table 1) along with worldwide revenue in current and constant currency (refer to Figure 2) and worldwide revenue share by region (refer to Figure 3) and by deployment type (refer to Figure 4)."The virtual client computing market has reached an inflection point," commented Shannon Kalvar, research director, IT Service Management and Client Virtualization Software. "Vendors' ability to practically simplify the effort to procure, provision, operate, and retire virtual solutions to increasingly sophisticated use cases possible will determine whether VCC remains a secondary solution or becomes more broadly applicable."
