File Sharing Market Forecast In-Depth Analysis & Global Forecast to 2030

Market Highlights

The global file sharing market is predicted to grow rapidly as a result of technological developments like the introduction of secure cloud technologies, 5G, and Industry 4.0. Many companies and individuals are transitioning to the cloud. Cloud-based deployment allows for quick access and file sharing across platforms and locations. The limiting factors such as data theft, security concerns, and privacy have been reduced due to these advancements. Hardware crashing of a computer system seems to be risky for users, and, thus, data/files are shared over the Internet for safekeeping.

Market Research Future (MRFR) projects the global file sharing market to hit USD 18.33 Billion  at a CAGR of 27.19% from 2020–2030

For example, Box estimated a USD 45 billion market opportunity for file sync-and-share in 2017. The major factors of this growth are an increase in users, data, and applications. Simultaneously, significant cost reductions in computing, networking, and storage have aided in the introduction of cloud-based solutions. Demand for cloud-enabled, mobility-optimized enterprise file sync-and-share and scalable, secure content collaboration capabilities is expected to grow rapidly in the coming years. As a result, advancements in digital technology are expected to drive the growth of the global file sharing market during the forecast period.

COVID-19 has compelled many companies to digitally transform their workplaces and education to operate effectively. To stay ahead of the competition, companies rely on emerging technologies like cloud, AI, and IoT to advance and reconsider their business model for the future by speeding up digital transformation. Many companies that were previously resistant to the idea of a distributed workforce have been forced to operate from home in order to complete work while mitigating the spread of the virus.
