Cyber Security Market

COVID-19 Impact Analysis

Owing to the effects of the coronavirus pandemic (COVID-19), the adoption of cyber security solutions is expected to increase during FY2020–21. This would be mainly due to the lockdown situation in numerous countries, which has led to the work-from-home situation, thus leading to an increasing number of cyberattacks and data breaches. For instance, according to a report by the World Health Organization (WHO), 450 active WHO email addresses and passwords were leaked online in April 2020. The rising number of COVID-19 related cyberattacks will further boost the cyber security market growth.

Segmentation Analysis

Services Category Is Projected To Register Faster Growth during Forecast Period

The services category, is projected to witness faster growth in the cyber security market during the forecast period, based on component. This is attributed to the increasing requirement of organizations for cyber security consulting, maintenance and support, and planning solutions. Furthermore, the risk and threat management category is expected to generate more demand during the forecast period, on the basis of services. This is attributed to the increasing utilization of threat management services, for 24x7 security monitoring, analyzing the causes of cyber incidents, proactively identifying the vulnerabilities, reducing the operational complexities, and improving the threat response time.

Large Enterprises Accounted for Larger Share in Cyber Security Industry

In 2019, the large enterprises bifurcation, in terms of enterprise, accounted for the larger size in the cyber security market. This was due to the complex network infrastructure, implementation of the cloud computing technology, rapid focus on digital transformation, increase in the need for the encryption of files and folders, and specific compliance requirements in such companies. Small and medium enterprises (SMEs) are projected to witness faster growth during the forecast period, owing to the rapid shift toward the adoption of cloud computing, surging awareness about cyber security, and increasing need to protect confidential information.

Enterprise Category Held Largest Share in Cyber Security Market

The enterprise category, on the basis of security type, held the largest share in the cyber security market in 2019. This was majorly due to the increasing focus of organizations on their overall security, including storage, networking, and application security. In addition, the growing awareness of large enterprises as well as SMEs about cyber security, rising number of data breaches, and increasing focus on establishing a high-security infrastructure, in order to safeguard themselves from malware attacks, are also supporting the market growth.

Threat Hunting Is Fastest-Growing Use Case Category in Industry

The threat hunting category, on the basis of use case, is expected to witness the fastest growth during the forecast period, in the cyber security market. This is ascribed to the surging focus of enterprises on leveraging advanced technologies, in order to detect and investigate advanced persistent threats and quickly respond to any potential attack. Some of the benefits offered by threat hunting solutions are a reduced inspection time, improved speed for threat and response management systems (TRMS), and early detection of threats, to secure the network infrastructure.

BFSI Is Dominating Category in Industry Segment

The banking, financial services, and insurance (BFSI) category accounted for the largest market size in 2019, owing to the rising focus of the sector on digitization, surging requirement to secure communication channels, and increasing consciousness to meet compliance regulations, such as the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) and Federal Information Processing Standards (FIPS).

Additionally, the increasing number of data breach incidents among financial institutions and banks is a major factor driving the growth of the cyber security market. For instance, in March 2019, a U.S.-based bank, Capital One Financial Corporation, suffered a data breach, which affected 100 million individuals in the U.S and 6 million in Canada. The information accessed by cyber criminals included credit card application data, customer status data, and transaction data.

Geographical Outlook

North America Is Largest Market for Cyber Security Solutions

North America dominated the cyber security market during the historical period (2014–2019). The major factors supporting the market growth include the intense focus on leveraging advanced data analytics tools, rapid implementation of data center services, shift toward the multi-cloud environment, and presence of a large number of cloud service providers. In addition, the high utilization of mobile application services and focus on the adoption of electronic health record (EHR) systems are also contributing to the high requirement for cloud-based cyber security solutions. Market players are focusing on the launch of new security solutions and services and incorporating new features in existing security solutions, in order to provide support to enterprises for improving their security.

APAC – Fastest-Growing Region in Industry

Geographically, the cyber security market in Asia-Pacific (APAC) is expected to witness lucrative growth, due to the increasing traffic on websites, vast adoption of cloud computing services, deployment of big data analytics in business functions, growth in the e-commerce industry, and strong need to secure customers’ data. Additionally, the rising number of data breaches, increasing utilization of connected devices, rapid shift toward digital transformation, and growing awareness about cyber security, in countries such as India, Singapore, and Malaysia, are also supporting the growth of the industry.

Cyber Security Market

Trends & Drivers

Increasing Preference for BYOD Policy at Workplaces

The implementation of the bring-your-own-device (BYOD) policy in organizations is witnessing significant growth, as it increases productivity and enhances employee satisfaction. However, BYOD adoption poses a major challenge, by making corporate data vulnerable to cyberattacks. Employee devices often do not have advanced security measures to mitigate the risks involved. Also, IT departments may not be able to fully evaluate and approve each and every device, which may pose a high security threat to confidential data. The rising adoption of personal devices, such as personal digital assistants (PDA) and laptops, in corporate environments is projected to drive the growth of the cyber security market in the coming years.

Cyber Security Market

Increasing Number of Data Breaches

The increasing number of data breaches is a major factor resulting in the cyber security market growth. The major causes of a data breach include improper configuration, weak passwords, malware attacks, and complex access permissions. The rising emphasis of organizations on shifting their database to the cloud network has also increased the chances of data breaches. Cyber security solutions provide support for preventing unauthorized access to information, early detection of vulnerabilities, and analyzing and detecting cyber threats in real time.

High Utilization of Mobile Devices

Mobile devices with advanced capabilities, similar to PCs, are reaching the population at a mass scale, as they offer access to emails, the internet, global positioning system (GPS) navigation, and many other applications. However, security measures, such as firewall and software, are not updated frequently on mobile devices, thus making them vulnerable to cyberattacks. The global smartphone penetration stood at about 65% in 2019, which is expected to reach around 80% by 2025. In addition, the increasing usage of mobile devices is also giving rise to mobile botnets (compromised software), which lead to the loss of information or result in the denial of services (DoS). Such factors are expected to boost the cyber security market growth.

Need to Meet Regulatory Compliances for Data Privacy

Governments of various countries have introduced several cyber laws and amended the existing ones, to provide a better security ecosystem. These government regulations make a mandate for companies to invest in cyber security solutions, to avoid potential reputation and financial loss and also ensure the safeguarding of individuals’ personal data. Stringent cyber laws have been enacted in many countries to overcome cyberattacks. For instance, the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) was signed in 2018 and came into effect in January 2020. It aims to provide consumers with strong data privacy rights and control over their personal information. Increasing number of stringent regulations are further expected to drive the growth in the cyber security market.
