Global Linux Operating System Market is valued at approximately USD 15.52 billion in 2022 and is anticipated to grow with a healthy growth rate of more than 20.1% over the forecast period 2023-2030. The Linux operating system is a free and open-source operating system that is installed on a variety of devices, including desktop computers, mobile phones, tablets, supercomputers, and gaming consoles. Linux is open-source software that is available to everyone for free compared to patent operating systems that demand a license charge, such as Windows OS and Mac OS. There are several different versions or distributions of Linux available for desktop PCs. Accordingly, this has led to a large and active community of developers who contribute to the development of Linux. The global market growth is expanding because of factors such as the growing penetration of Linux in smartphone and mobile devices, increasing demand for open-source software, coupled with the rising cost of Windows licenses.

In addition, the increasing adoption of cloud computing is acting as a catalyzing factor for market growth across the globe. Cloud computing is gaining high popularity globally, which significantly results in the high demand for Linux for cloud computing platforms because it is a reliable and secure operating system, and it is also very scalable. For instance, according to the IEEE ComSoc, in 2021, the global public spending on cloud computing has reached USD 332.3 billion with a rise of nearly 23.1 % from USD 270 billion in 2020. Also, the market has grown as a result of an increase in the use of OS-based hybrid cloud platforms with greater security, improved server reliability, and density. The Linux operating system for the cloud was primarily created for hosting users. Users are helped to remain distinct in a different Lightweight Virtualized Environment (LVE) via this cloud-based operating system. It allows users to set up categories, limitations, and secure allocations of server resources. A cloud-based operating system helps protect users’ databases and websites against malicious programmes and online assaults. Furthermore, the rapid proliferation of the Internet of Things (IoT) and embedded systems, as well as the increase in advancement of technology present various lucrative opportunities over the forecast years. However, the intense competition from windows and limited adoption of linux are hampering the market growth throughout the forecast period of 2023-2030.

The key regions considered for the Global Linux Operating System Market study include Asia Pacific, North America, Europe, Latin America, and Middle East & Africa. North America dominated the market in 2022 owing to the rise in cloud and data center deployment, along with the growing cloud investments by the companies. Additionally, the regional market growth is primarily driven by the rising use of the Internet of Things (IoT) and cloud computing in countries such as the United States and Canada. Whereas, Asia Pacific is expected to grow at the highest CAGR over the forecast years.
The growing trend of cloud computing and virtualization, as well as the rising adoption of advanced technologies such as the internet of things and android smartphones with Linux-based operating systems are significantly propelling the market demand across the region.
