(MENAFN- Comserve) Shibuya-ku, Tokyo, Japan, Japan, Oct 14, 2021, 09:08 /Comserve / -- Desktop Virtualization Market in Retail With Top Countries Data, Industry Analysis , Size, Share, Revenue, Prominent Players, Developing Technologies, Tendencies and Forecast
The global desktop virtualization market in the retail industry is projected to register a CAGR of 58.24% during the forecast period from 2020 to 2025. Desktop virtualization has become a mainstream strategy for companies of all sizes. According to Oxford Economics, 83% of the large retailers are considering digital transformation as a core business goal. Oxford also highlighted the traction from small and midsize retailers (59%) and their belief in digital transformation.
- As digital transformation is arguably at its fiercest within the retail sector, the established 'bricks-and-mortar' retailer is likely to focus on boosting store activity, improving profitability, and driving online sales through e-commerce and customer engagement investments. IT technologies, like Desktop virtualization, have been mainly adopted by large retailers and hypermarkets with multiple stores across regions. Mydin, a Malaysia-based supermarket chain, Rakuten, a Japanese e-commerce company, and Danier Leather, the Canadian leather goods retailer are some notable retailers to recognize the need to build a robust IT architecture, by improving server utilization and enhancing application performance, to facilitate better delivery of their products and services.
- Further, a new report by Transunion subsidiary Iovation shows that online retail fraud surged 29% during the Thanksgiving holiday weekend around the world in 2019, from year-ago figures, as hackers and other bad actors moved to take advantage of growing use of mobile and other e-commerce shopping methods. 15% of e-commerce transactions between Thanksgiving and CyberMonday may have been fraudulent, and Black Friday saw a spike, with about 25% of the suspected fraudulent transactions taking place. Fraudsters are increasingly using mobile emulators to appear more legitimate before perpetrating other attacks. To prevent such a threat, the rise of desktop virtualization is needed in the retail sector.
