Global Docking Station Market will grow at a CAGR of 5.4% from 2016 to 2020

Date: 2016-09-29

A docking station is a bridge to the past for many newer computers, but users might find that they need one even if they have the latest model. It’s a device into which a person can plug a laptop in order to gain extra functionality, such as access to printers, mice, scanners, full-sized monitors and keyboards, and external hard drives. All of these peripherals can be plugged into the dock, and then, when the user connects the laptop, he can gain access to all of those peripherals without having to plug each one into the computer. This can be especially helpful if the laptop has a minimal number of USB or Firewire® ports.

Most newer laptops have more than enough USB or Firewire® ports for casual use, although some users find that they want to access a desktop monitor while using the laptop. Sometimes, a larger keyboard is also easier to type on. In each of these cases, it’s usually possible for the user to plug the monitor or the keyboard directly into the laptop. Having everything plugged into a central device can provide more flexibility, however, especially if the laptop is often used on the go.

In essence, using a docking station converts a laptop computer into a desktop computer, even for a short period of time. A user can plug all of his peripheral devices into this machine so that they’re easy to access, and then just unplug the computer itself when on the go, rather than having to disconnect each individual item. Especially when a combination of newer and older technology is used, this often allows everything to work together more easily.

On the basis of product, the global docking station market has been segmented into hard drive (HDD) docks, laptop docks, and mobile devices docks. In 2013, laptop docking station segment held around 55% market share and emerged as the largest segment of the market. During the forecast period, the demand for mobile devices docks is expected to increase significantly.

The global docking station market is expected to reach over USD 6.0 billion by 2020 from USD 4.7 billion in 2015, and growing at a CAGR of 5.1% from 2016 to 2020. In terms of geography, North America is the largest market of docking station, accounting for approximately 45% of the global market revenue in 2013, and will continue to be maintained. Asia-Pacific and Europe are anticipated to hold promising growth in the next few years.
