The market is expected to reach $300.56 billion in 2025 at a CAGR of 12%.
The operating systems market consists of sales of operating systems by entities (organizations, sole traders, and partnerships) that provide operating systems, which are software programs enabling computer hardware to communicate and operate with the computer software. Only goods and services traded between entities or sold to end consumers are included.
Increasing use of pirated versions of operating systems is projected to limit the growth of the operating systems market. Software piracy is a major concern that is impacting the revenues of software companies for decades. BSA, The Software Alliance reported unlicensed software is being used at alarming rates worldwide, accounted for 37% of software installed on personal computers in 2018.
The operating systems market covered in this report is segmented by the operating system into windows, mac OS, Linux, others, by distribution channel into business-to-business (B2B), business-to-consumer (B2C).
In July 2019, International Business Machines Corporation (IBM), a USA-based technology and consulting company acquired Red Hat, Inc. for an amount of $34 billion. Through this acquisition, IBM has acquired open-source technologies like Linux, Kubernetes, Ansible, Java, Ceph.
