An increase in the adoption of bring your own device policies (BYOD) at healthcare organizations and in other businesses is expected to fuel growth in the global workspace aggregator market through 2020, according to Technavio Research.

The research organization predicts that the market will increase at a compound annual growth rate of about 12 percent between 2016 and 2020. The increase in the number of mobile devices, increased Internet use on mobile devices, growing popularity of BYOD and enterprise mobility are the major factors that contribute to the growth of the market.

Workspace aggregators help organizations implement BYOD policies by handling all applications and files centrally in a secure way. The Americas is the largest region in the market, accounting for more than 43 percent of the overall market share by 2020.

Much of the region’s growth comes from the quick adoption of advanced information technologies such as enterprise mobility, identity access management, virtualization, collaboration and cloud-based services by businesses and government organizations.

“Employees demand flexible and dynamic workspaces that offer the liberty to work from any location at any time with any device,” said Amrita Choudhury, a lead analyst at Technavio Research. “This has propelled organizations to modernize workplaces to increase productivity.”

Companies are replacing traditional desktop computers with modern workspaces that provide flexibility, Choudhury says. Workspace aggregators help modernize the IT virtual infrastructure so that users can have a seamless experience with technology, he said.
