Global Virtual Data Room Market Size to Double by 2026, Reaching $3.2 Billion - The Shift Towards Remote Working due to COVID-19 Spurs Growth


Dublin, Oct. 04, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Virtual Data Room Market with COVID-19 Impact Analysis, by Component, Business Function (Finance and Legal), Application (Due Diligence and Fundraising), Deployment Mode, Organization Size, Vertical, and Region - Global Forecast to 2026" report has been added to's offering.

The global Virtual Data Room market size to grow from USD 1.6 billion in 2021 to USD 3.2 billion by 2026, at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 14.5% during the forecast period.

Various factors such as increasing volumes of business data due to complexities arising from M&A activities and the shift toward remote work during COVID-19 are expected to drive the adoption of Virtual Data Room software and services.

The COVID-19 crisis is having and will continue to have a material global impact on M&A. On a massive scale and in a very short period, hundreds of thousands of businesses have shuttered or cut back their operations significantly, millions of workers have been laid off, consumer spending has been drastically reduced, supply chains have been disrupted, and demand for oil and other energy sources has plummeted.

The M&A world has endured and recovered from past economic crises, including the burst of the dot-com bubble in 2000-2002 and the Great Recession of 2007-2009. As in past financial and economic crises, uncertainties in the business and capital markets have already contributed to buyers delaying or cutting back on their acquisition plans. But this time, the impact of the pandemic is not just on the financial system, the valuation of sellers, and the appetite of buyers, but on a multitude of other factors affecting M&A deals.

With all the principal players working remotely, the effective use of new and creative collaborative tools, technologies and techniques have become more critical as buyers, sellers, providers of M&A financing, and all their respective legal and financial advisors adjust to the changing environment. Global M&A has already plummeted as a result of the COVID-19, and by the end of March 2020, it reached a near standstill. M&A levels in the US fell by more than 50% in the first quarter to USD 253 billion compared to 2019, but most of those transactions were entered into or closed earlier in the quarter before the crisis spread worldwide.

The Virtual Data Room market is bifurcated on the basis of cloud and on-premises. The market size of the cloud deployment mode is estimated to be larger and projected to have a higher CAGR during the forecast period.

The adoption of virtual data room software and services among large enterprises is high due to the ever-increasing adoption of the cloud, and the trend is expected to continue during the forecast period.

Among regions, APAC to hold a higher CAGR during the forecast period
