File sharing software provides multiple users access to important files and enables them to collaborate with clients and customers. Files can be synced to the cloud and accessed through multiple platforms. The global file sharing software market report by Market Research Future (MRFR) provides insights on changing demands of users amid the rapid consumption of data and access to high-speed data speeds. The COVID-19 pandemic is taken into account for providing projections for the period of 2018 to 2023 (forecast period). 

Market Scope

The global file sharing software market can expand at 24.8% CAGR during the forecast period to touch a value of USD 9,891.3 million by 2023, according to MRFR. The need for rapid and seamless transfer of files is the major driver of the market. Development of file sharing platforms and apps owing to expansion of network infrastructure and availability of communication networking technologies such as 4G/5G can bode well for the market.

The ease of using cloud and ability to scale operations can lead to many file sharing companies offering their services based on the technology. Moreover, the dipping prices of cloud storage and offerings of various storage subscriptions can drive the market demand significantly. The ability to protect content and intellectual property can serve as new avenues for growth. Recently, FileCloud, an enterprise file sharing and data governance platform, has built in security in its latest iteration and focused on encryptions for preventing data from corruption during large file transfers.

But the high costs of enterprise file sharing software can limit its growth.
