Global Docking Station Market Expected to Reach US$ 6.02 Billion by 2020: Transparency Market Research

According to a new market report published by Transparency Market Research “Docking Station Market – Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends and Forecast 2014 – 2020”, the global docking station market was worth US$ 4.20 Bn in 2013 and is expected to reach US$  6.02 Bn by 2020, growing at a CAGR of 5.3% from 2014 to 2020. North America was the largest market for docking station in 2013 which accounted for around 45% of the global market revenue. Growth in this region is expected to be driven by wide adoption of docking stations in enterprise environment.

The docking station market is driven by various factors including proliferation of handheld devices along with the rising trend of BYOD and CYOD policies and high advantages of docking stations for mobile device users. Bring your own device (BYOD) is the concept of allowing the employees to use their own personal devices for office-related work. This may include laptops, tablets, and smartphones. Choose your own device (CYOD) is another rising trend in workplaces, in which the organization allows its employees to select a device from a specified range of devices. This enables the organization to establish more control over the devices selected by employees to handle company information. Most devices selected in the BYOD and CYOD policies are tablets and personal laptops. However, these devices offer limited connectivity to external peripherals compared to desktop computers. Docking stations enable users to connect their portable devices with simple connection to numerous external devices such as keyboards, mouse, printers, and with other network devices. This is the most significant factor boosting the growth of docking station market in organizations. However, availability of cheaper alternatives to docking stations and lack of standardization in the docking stations are some of the factors restraining the market growth.

Among different product types, laptop docking station segment was the largest and accounted for around 55% of the market share in 2013. However, mobile device docking station segment is expected to witness strong growth during the forecast period. The docking station market is segmented on the basis of technology into wired and wireless docking stations. At present, wired docking stations account for the largest share in terms of revenue in the global docking station market. Wired docking stations include traditional docks with proprietary snap-in connectors and single cable docks.
