Global Enterprise File Synchronization & Sharing Market Size

The Global Enterprise File Synchronization and Sharing Market was worth USD 4.23 billion in 2021, and it is determined to reach a valuation of USD 16.99 billion by 2026 with a development rate (CAGR) of 26.3% between 2021 and 2026.

EFSS (Enterprise File Synchronization and Sharing) is a software service that enables companies to securely synchronize and share files, including media, documents, and more, between multiple users and multiple devices. The sync feature allows files to be stored in an approved data store and then accessed by users from a PC, tablet, or smartphone that supports business file syncing and sharing products. Providers of enterprise file sync and sharing platforms are constantly improving their security features, including containerization, authentication, data encryption, and tracking capabilities to protect enterprise data. Platform providers offering enterprise file sync and sharing services have multiple options for businesses, such as hybrid or private cloud or on-premises services. In most hybrid or on-premises deployments, the files remain in the company's own data store. Enterprise File Synchronization and Sharing (EFSS) solutions enable individuals and organizations to share and synchronize different types of files, both within and outside the organization, and accessible to individuals, organizations, and customers. The adoption of an enterprise file synchronization and sharing platform is driven by security, productivity, and accessibility. New emerging trends in the industry include data loss prevention, enterprise content aggregation, and integration with built-in editing applications. Advances in consumer technology make it easier for people to collaborate and connect with business environments and business file synchronization and sharing solutions. EFSS services include attributes such as live document version tracking, comments, and workflow process management to help users review, edit, store, and share files. Enterprise file sharing tools play an important role in this transformation by providing an integrated system for employees to handle communication, collaboration, and content management tasks.

Impact of COVID-19 on the Enterprise File Synchronization and Sharing Market

Globally, when the coronavirus breaks out, working from home is expected to increase the demand for corporate file syncing and sharing, especially in the IT and telecommunications sectors. The epidemic has led many employees to work from home and students to learn virtually, and enterprise VPN (Virtual Private Network) servers have now become the lifeblood of businesses/schools, and security and safety are estimated to availability be the main focus going forward. Companies that rely on advanced technologies such as AI, cloud, and IoT will stay ahead of the competition to advance and rethink their business models for the future through rapid digital transformation. The growth of the digital workspace leading to a skilled mobile workforce and increased collaboration between employees and businesses are drivers of the growth of the enterprise file sync and sharing market. Even companies that resist the concept of a decentralized workforce had to allow work-from-home to continue to function while taking steps to stop the spread of the virus.

Recent Developments in Global Enterprise File Synchronization & Sharing Market

  • In July 2020, Box will leverage Google Cloud and advanced features to improve the scale, performance, and intelligence of its cloud content management platform globally.
  • In July 2020, Citrix Systems expanded its partnership with Microsoft to make Citrix Workspace the preferred digital workspace solution. Citrix also chose Microsoft Azure as its preferred cloud platform.

Market Drivers

The growing digital workspace and mobile workforce, as well as increased collaboration between employees and businesses, are key drivers of the EFSS market. Additionally, strict government regulations and corporate emphasis on data security aspects are also driving market growth. The adoption of cloud-based solutions is increasing, and potential emerging markets act as opportunities for global markets. With the growing demand for content and information security, companies are actively seeking solutions that are more advanced than the cloud. Cloud security weaknesses include theft, sophisticated attacks against application providers, and the inability to monitor the movement of data between applications. The EFSS market is supposed to continue to evolve as more organizations focus on digital transformation, an approach to embracing new technologies and improving internal productivity by eliminating paper processes. BYOD is a concept in which employees bring their laptops, smartphones, and USB controllers to work and connect them to office servers to increase work efficiency and reduce business operating costs. With the help of the Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) trend, employees can now access work data from personal devices such as smartphones, laptops and tablets, wherever they are. This is supposed to lead to the requirement for a common platform for file sharing, which will contribute to the growth of the enterprise sync and share market. Additionally, the significant shift from traditional file sharing technology to enterprise file sharing and synchronization is foreseen to create new market opportunities during the conjecture period.

The EFSS service includes features such as document version tracking, live annotations, and workflow process management to help users save, edit, and share files. Companies around the world are rapidly implementing EFSS solutions to modernize their IT infrastructure, deliver digital experiences across devices and channels, and support a wide range of mobile workforces and agile business processes. The evolution of digitization and technological advances in recent years has greatly supported the growth of these markets. The increasing use of technological devices such as mobile phones and tablets is also driving this market. With the growing demand for cloud-based integration, Enterprise File Synchronization and Sharing (EFSS) not only meets these needs, but also provides an enterprise configured file sharing and synchronization and includes increased adoption of BYOD. These factors are driving the growth of the overall Enterprise File Synchronization and Sharing (EFSS) market. In addition to these growth factors, concern about data security is one aspect that is holding back the overall growth of the market. The enterprise file synchronization and sharing market is also booming thanks to the tech-savvy generation. This market is growing exponentially as many countries move towards digitization and adopt next-generation technologies. The market also expanded by integrating these applications with the cloud and mobile. Due to the high rate of adoption of various industries for advanced technologies, the scope or growth of the enterprise file synchronization and sharing market is well under way.


The high cost of EFSS solutions is supposed to hamper market growth. High investment costs and lack of scalability are likely to slow market growth. Lack of awareness of the benefits with enterprise file sharing and sync solutions is challenging business growth.

Global Enterprise File Synchronization & Sharing Market Segmentation

  • By component, the market is segmented into integrated EFSS solutions, standalone EFSS solutions and services. The services are subdivided into professional services and management services. Professional services are subdivided into integration and implementation, consulting services, training and support.
  • Depending on the type of deployment, the market is segmented into cloud and on-premises. The cloud is further subdivided into public, private, and hybrid clouds. Cloud-based solutions include a SaaS model that allows users to access EFSS solutions virtually over the Internet.

Regional Analysis

North America is foreseen to dominate the global enterprise file synchronization and sharing (EFSS) market during the outlook period as adoption of digitized and automated workflow systems increases in SMBs. Western Europe is one of the major regions to adopt an enterprise file sync and sharing platform due to the large number of small and large businesses in both regions. The Asia Pacific and Japan markets are estimated to show the highest growth rates in the coming years, driven by growing technology trends and industrial developments. Latin America and Eastern Europe will experience positive growth in the coming years through the adoption of advanced technology in both regions.
