Utilizing virtualization technology can lower IT expenses and improve hardware performance for end users.
Virtualization Software Market Dynamics
This section deals with understanding the market drivers, advantages, opportunities, restraints and challenges. All of this is discussed in detail as below:
- Increased Adoption of Virtualization Applications by the Businesses
Companies have built interfaces for their employees to access vital business software remotely during the past few decades in an effort to preserve business continuity. They have also increased VPN/remote access capabilities. The demand for collaboration solutions for intra-organizational communication increased as personnel relocated to distant places. The need for virtual contact centers in the cloud that can operate with a distant workforce and the demand for virtual machine security in cloud computing are both growing. One of the most important virtualization security enablers for businesses to secure virtual machines and the virtual machine mode of the infrastructure has emerged as cloud computing. As a result these various virtual applications further require the virtualization software, which aids the market growth over the forecast period.
Furthermore, the factors such as advent of cloud services coupled with the rising demand of HCI scale for server virtualization will accelerate the overall market expansion during the forecast period. The development of cloud services has also given virtualization software applications for hardware virtualization an additional push. The decreasing cost due to reduction in hardware spending and growing benefits of SDs and desktop virtualization will further positively impact the market's growth rate during the forecast period.
- Investments in Research and Development
The various investments in the research and development activities for launching advanced web-related solutions further offer various lucrative opportunities for the market growth over the forecast period.
- Significant Technological Advancements
Additionally, the significant technological advancements further offer numerous growth opportunities within the market. Additionally, the introduction of network function visualization (NFV) and virtual customer premises equipment (vCPE) solutions for leveraging information technology (IT) virtualization technologies at reduced costs are contributing to the market growth.
- Death of Skilled Workers
According to a report by the Enterprise Strategy Group (ESG) and the Information Systems Security Association (ISSA), a lack of adequate training for non-technical staff members and a paucity of highly skilled cybersecurity professionals are the main causes of data breaches. As IT expertise for on-premises infrastructure is frequently hard to come by, a shortage of qualified IT experts in virtualization security may limit industry growth.
- High Maintenance Cost
The market growth rate will be further slowed down by the high cost of maintenance. The virtualization software requires huge maintenance, which further necessitates high cost, which is estimated to be a significant challenge for the virtualization software market over the forecast period.

COVID-19 Impact on Virtualization Software Market
The virtualization software market was immensely impacted by the outbreak of COVID-19. Many businesses are urging staff to work from home as a result of the new COVID outbreak, which is helping the vendors. This is due to the fact that more and more clients and organizations are looking to these vendors for guidance and support, to enable secure remote-work initiatives, to ensure the well-being and productivity of their workers, and to continue running their businesses despite the evolving nature of the global crisis. During the recovery phase, the pandemic-driven rapid adoption of digital technology will continue. Many of the hurried IT fixes made during the COVID-19 incident may have exposed additional cyber risks. Virtualization security is a method for assuring the security of the virtualized infrastructure. One of the main factors propelling the market's expansion is the demand for cloud computing technologies. Hackers try to gain access to crucial data by manipulating the cloud environment's protections and security layers. Network perimeter access is protected by a barrier created by virtualization security. It guarantees traffic separation and offers specialized cloud security. It offers the cloud customized firewall control as a managed service. For the purpose of analyzing patient data during the COVID-19 pandemic, there is a surge in demand for cloud computing technology, notably in the healthcare sector. The cloud computing industry has had significant growth during the COVID-19 pandemic, which is driving the virtualization security market ahead.
- In March 2020, Affirmed Networks, a business that provides completely virtualized, cloud-native mobile network solutions, has been acquired by Microsoft, according to a press release. In order to allow the telecoms sector to develop and operate 5G networks via the cloud rather than just hardware and software, Microsoft plans to include Affirmed Networks' technology into Microsoft Azure.
