The docking station market is driven by various factors including proliferation of handheld devices along with the rising trend of BYOD and CYOD policies and high advantages of docking stations for mobile device users. Bring your own device (BYOD) is the concept of allowing the employees to use their own personal devices for office-related work. This may include laptops, tablets, and smartphones. Choose your own device (CYOD) is another rising trend in workplaces, in which the organization allows its employees to select a device from a specified range of devices. This enables the organization to establish more control over the devices selected by employees to handle company information. Most devices selected in the BYOD and CYOD policies are tablets and personal laptops. However, these devices offer limited connectivity to external peripherals compared to desktop computers. Docking stations enable users to connect their portable devices with simple connection to numerous external devices such as keyboards, mouse, printers, and with other network devices. This is the most significant factor boosting the growth of docking station market in organizations. However, availability of cheaper alternatives to docking stations and lack of standardization in the docking stations are some of the factors restraining the market growth.
