Most likely VPN tunneling, largely for P2P masking the users real IP. Also use to make yourself appear in a different location for geolocation purposes. Some streaming services require you to be in a particular country to use them, or to not be in a country.

Or it could be people working that need to use a VPN to connect to a corporate network.

Yeah. Uh huh. I bet that's what makes up most of that percentage.
