The global operating systems market grew from $43.14 billion in 2021 to $45.04 billion in 2022 at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 4.4%. The Russia-Ukraine war disrupted the chances of global economic recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic, at least in the short term. The war between these two countries has led to economic sanctions on multiple countries, surge in commodity prices, and supply chain disruptions, effecting many markets across the globe. The operating systems market is expected to grow to $48.27 billion in 2026 at a CAGR of 1.7%.

The rise in demand for computer systems contributed to the growth of the operating systems market. The surge in demand for computers is generating a higher requirement for operating systems to perform tasks like memory management, file management, process management, handling input and output functions, and to control hardware such as printers and disk drivers. According to Gartner’s statistics published in January 2020, worldwide personal computer shipments were around 70.6 million in 2019. Moreover, worldwide computer systems ships totaled 261.2 million units in 2019. Therefore, the increase in demand for computer systems contributed to the operating systems market.

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. According to Microsoft’s study published in nine Asian countries, more than four in five or 83% of all new computers sold in nine Asian countries comes with pre-loaded pirated software and malware. Moreover, according to BSA, the Software Alliance, approximately 74% of all commercial software used in China is pirated.

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.
