Dublin, 16 July. 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — The report “Operating Systems Global Market Report 2021: COVID-19 Impact and Recovery to 2030” has been added to from offer.

The global operating systems market is expected to grow from $185.23 billion in 2020 to $191.12 billion in 2021 at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 3.2%.

Major players in the operating system market are Microsoft Corporation, Apple Inc., Linux, Canonical Ltd., Debian, IBM Corporation, Linux Mint Ltd., Manjaro Linux and SUSE.

The growth is mainly due to companies reorganizing their operations and recovering from the impact of COVID-19, which had previously led to restrictive containment measures involving social distancing, remote working and the closure of business activities that resulted in operational challenges. The market is expected to reach $300.56 billion in 2025 with a CAGR of 12%.

The operating systems market includes sales of operating systems by entities (organizations, sole proprietorships, and partnerships) that supply operating systems, which are software programs that enable computer hardware to communicate and operate with computer software. Only goods and services exchanged between entities or sold to final consumers are included.

The increasing use of pirated versions of operating systems is expected to limit the growth of the operating system market. Software piracy is a major concern that has impacted software publishers’ revenues for decades. BSA, The Software Alliance, reported that unlicensed software is being used at alarming rates around the world, accounting for 37% of software installed on personal computers in 2018.

The Operating System market covered in this report is segmented by Operating System into Windows, Mac OS, Linux, Others, by Business-to-Business (B2B), Business-to-Consumer (B2C) distribution channel.

In July 2019, International Business Machines Corporation (IBM), a US-based technology and consulting firm, acquired Red Hat, Inc. for $34 billion. Through this acquisition, IBM acquired open source technologies like Linux, Kubernetes, Ansible, Java, Ceph. International Business Machines Corporation (IBM) and Red Hat, Inc. together planned to accelerate innovation by delivering a next-generation hybrid multi-cloud platform. Red Hat Inc is a United States-based software company that provides open-source software products for businesses.

The increase in the demand for computer systems has contributed to the growth of the operating system market. The increase in demand for computers generates an increased need for operating systems to perform tasks such as memory management, file management, process management, input and output function management and to control hardware such as printers and disk drivers.

According to Gartner statistics released in January 2020, worldwide personal computer shipments were approximately 70.6 million in 2019, which registered an increase of 2.3% compared to 2018. Therefore, the increase demand for computer systems contributed to the operating systems market.
