The global deep packet inspection and processing market is driven by the growing demand of cyber security solutions. The key factors responsible for the persistent growth of the market include the increasing mobile network, less regulated internet infrastructure, increasing business complexities and growing adoption of BYOD (bring your own device).
Deep packet inspection and processing is a special type of computer network packet filtering technology that inspects the data including the header of a data packet when it passes through inspection point. The advantages of deep packet inspection and processing includes its function to prioritize the traffic and providing information about traffic. Several innovations have been witnessed in the deep packet inspection and processing market, including the development of Next-Generation Firewalls (NGFWs) that are capable of investigating the network packets up to 7 application layers of the OSI model. It also provides strong network traffic filtering capabilities depending on the contents of the packet.
Some of the major drivers of the market include continuous emergence of cyber-attacks and need for network performance management & optimization solutions to effectively manage the complex networking environments. The emerging opportunities in the market include evolution of Internet of Things (IoT) and rapid increase in network traffic in the developing countries. Moreover, the increasing use of mobile devices with growing mobile broadband data demand is also augmenting the growth of deep packet inspection and processing market. The surging urbanization along with increasing purchasing power of consumers is projected to trigger the usage of mobile devices and inspection of data packets. The growing demand for anti-terrorism solutions that includes prevention of malicious viruses are also expected to drive the deep packet inspection and processing industry over the forecast period. Some of the major restraints in the market include lack of awareness about the benefits of deep packet inspection and processing and privacy violation concerns.
Among the various applications of deep packet inspection and processing, intrusion detection system (IDS) and intrusion prevention system (IPS) generate highest revenue in the market, owing to rising demands for advanced cybersecurity solutions across all major industry verticals. The data loss/leak prevention and management is one of the fastest-growing application segment of deep packet inspection and processing technology. On the basis of industry verticals, government sector contributes highest to the market revenue. This is due to the increasing necessity of enhanced security measures which increases the usage of inspection platform for security and surveillance. In telecom and IT sector it helps in understanding the user behaviour, which is similar to business support system and operations support system and helps service providers for delivering the required services.
Geographically, Asia-Pacific is expected to be the largest market for deep packet inspection and processing, due to the increasing number of telecom industries and mobile device users in the region. In China, the increasing cases of cyber-crimes and government regulations are some of the factors for the market growth. Due to the security issues, several high-ranking websites in China have been blocked. Moreover, the advancement in technologies and growing population in the countries such as China, India and Japan has increased the number of telecom and internet subscribers, which is further escalating the market.
Some of the key vendors of the global deep packet inspection and processing market are Cisco Systems, Inc., Intel Corporation, International Business Machine (IBM) Corporation, Hewlett-Packard Enterprise (HPE) Company, Palo Alto Networks, Inc., Check Point Software Technologies Ltd., Blue Coat Systems, Inc., Extreme Networks, Inc., Net Scout Systems, Inc. and Symantec Corporation.
