LONDON--()--The global computing device operating system market is expected to post a CAGR of more than 2% during the period 2019-2023, according to the latest market research report by Technavio. However, the market’s momentum will decelerate in the coming years because of the decrease in the year-over-year growth.

Several countries are focusing on developing smart cities to efficiently manage their assets and resources. This will lead to an increase in the demand for connected systems and IoT devices. The data collected from IoT devices in smart cities will increase the need for servers to store and manage data. This in turn, will increase the demand for OS installed in connected systems, IoT devices, and servers. Therefore, the rising investments in smart city projects will positively impact the global computing device OS market during the forecast period.

As per Technavio, strategic investments and partnership by vendors will have a positive impact on the market and contribute to its growth significantly over the forecast period. This global computing device operating system market 2019-2023 research report also analyzes other important trends and market drivers that will affect market growth over 2019-2023.

Global computing device operating systems market: Strategic investments and partnership by vendors

Several OEMs and OS developers are making strategic investments and alliances to acquire a larger consumer base enabling their OS on OEM devices. For instance, Google recently invested in KaiOS Technologies, a feature-phone OS. This enabled Google to integrate its services such as Search, Maps, YouTube, and Google Assistant into KaiOS devices. Google also partnered with Huawei Technologies in 2018 to provide Android Messages and RCS messaging for Huawei Technologies’ smartphones that run on Android OS. The increase in many such strategic partnerships and investments will accelerate the deployment of OS across devices. This is expected to fuel the growth of the global computing device operating system market over the forecast period.

Most of the demand for computing device operating systems comes from the use of smartphones. Countries such as India, China, Indonesia, and the Philippines are generating significant demand for smartphones in the APAC region. To meet this demand, many leading smartphone manufacturers are establishing their manufacturing plants in the APAC region. North America is home for major mobile computing OEMs such as Apple, Microsoft, and Google. The region is also witnessing high investments in the deployment of 5G network infrastructure to support the increasing mobile data traffic. All these factors will collectively contribute to the growth of the market during the forecast period,” says an analyst at Technavio.
