Here’s How The Work-From-Home Tech Market Fared In Q2

As many companies began issuing work-from-home mandates in March to help combat the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic, businesses and employees found themselves without the tools and equipment they would need to power their remote work environments, such as external monitors, docking stations, PC headsets, keyboards, USB cameras, and mice.

Recent data from the NPD Group, which tracks monthly sales data from the largest distributors and resellers in North America, found that work-from-home tech tool sales initially spiked in March. While some revenue for certain equipment declined overall during the three months from April 2020 to June 2020, such as monitors and docking stations, other segments continued to climb, with hardware such as USB cameras, seeing an impressive triple-digit revenue growth during the second quarter of 2020.

Overall, NPD reported that revenue for work-from-home products increased slightly by 2.2 percent during what may have been the most uncertain fiscal quarter in years for many businesses and their employees. NPD believes that as many schools announce remote learning plans for the fall and employees work from home for an extended period of time -- or even on a more permanent basis, many work from home tech product revenues will grow.

Here are the revenues of six work-from-home products that the NPD Group tracked during Q2 2020.
