Terminal emulation is the capability to make one computer terminal (normally a PC), seem like another typically older type of terminal so that any user can access programs initially written to connect with the other terminal type. Terminal emulation software is one of the most deployed desktop solutions connecting numerous users to legacy green screen applications running on AS/400s and mainframes. Terminal emulation simplifies the accessing and capturing of data from server-based supply chain management systems. Fields such as “Location,” “Quantity,” “SKU #” and more were effortlessly occupied by the task worker, eliminating the paper-based flow used earlier to manually capture such information. Terminal emulator automatically advances functionalities, management of user profiles, and offers centralized deployment. Different terminal emulation is needed for specific types of terminals, for instance, the AS/400 5250 display terminal, the DEC’s VT100 terminal, or IBM 3270 display terminal. The program executing the terminal emulation must recognize the data stream from the mainframe at some communication levels, including session control and data link control. The terminal emulator works by understanding the control codes referred by the remote system and interpreting them to control the screen of the workstation, and by referring control codes to the system dependent on the keys being pressed. This is frequently used to connect to mainframes or other legacy systems.

Terminal emulator software decreases the learning curve when upgrading hardware. The software enhances access and productivity with centralized interface. Businesses are adopting terminal emulation software in order to improve productivity and minimize security risks which is contributing significantly to the growth of the terminal emulator software market. Thus, growing demand for affordable solutions by small & medium organizations is expected to boost the terminal emulator software market significantly during the forecast period.

However, lack of awareness regarding the implementation of terminal emulation software is expected to restrain the terminal emulator software market growth during the forecast period. Furthermore, availability of free terminal emulator software is anticipated to restrain the market growth during the forecast period.

The global terminal emulator software market can be segmented based on solutions, enterprise size, and region. On the basis of solutions, the terminal emulator software market is segmented into Windows, Mac, and others. Based on enterprise size, the terminal emulator software market can be classified into large enterprises and small & medium enterprises. In terms of geography, the global terminal emulator software market can be segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Middle East & Africa, and South America. The terminal emulator software market in countries such as the U.S. and the U.K. is expected to expand at a prominent growth rate during the forecast period due to the rise in technological advancements and increase in demand for highly secure hosting solutions from enterprises.

Various terminal emulators have been developed for many terminals. Some examples are, ADDS ViewPoint, Sperry/Unisys 2000-series UTS60, VT220, Data General D211, and Wyse 50/60. Many terminal emulation software truly emulates additional software emulation programs. For instance, xterm and various Linux console terminals. Other software just emulates aANSI standard or other standards found on many operating systems such as Unix, DOS, and GUI operating systems such as MAC and Windows.

Key players operating in the global terminal emulator software market include Rocket Software, Inc., Hewlett Packard Enterprises, Termux, Wavelink, Honeywell International Inc., International Spectrum, Inc., Revolvy, Pickwicki, LANDesk Software, Inc., StayLinked Corporation, OpenText, Esker., VanDyke Software, Inc. and Century Software. Major players are executing various strategies such as acquisitions, partnerships, R&D investments, and production innovation in order to gain competitive advantage in the market. For instance, in September 2018, Honeywell International announced smart terminal emulation software for its rugged mobile computers.
