Cybersecurity Market 2
Cybersecurity Market 2


The global cybersecurity market is expected to register a CAGR of around 11% over the period of 2021-2027. The demand for cybersecurity is on the rise due to the increasing number of people and devices connected to the internet that can be hacked and the rise in malware and phishing threats among people. Hackers don’t just target computers, websites, and servers; any device based on programming offers an opportunity for them. From the most complex to the simplest network, if they are connected to the internet, they are highly prone to cyber-attacks. Moreover, there are several types of cyber threats present that can breach the security and steal the data such as malware, backdoors, formjacking, cryptojacking, distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attacks, and domain name system (DNS) poisoning attacks. Furthermore, according to IBM, in 2020, the average cost of a data breach was USD 3.86 million globally, and USD 8.64 million in the United States. These costs include the expenses of discovering and responding to the breach, the cost of downtime and lost revenue, and the long-term reputational damage to a business and its brand. Hence, SMEs cannot afford cyber-attacks because they might lose their entire business. Cybersecurity protects data and network security, avoids unauthorized user access, and maintains continuity of operations.

Cisco Systems Inc., Check Point Software Technologies Ltd., Palo Alto Networks Inc., Fortinet Inc., International Business Machines Corporation, Sophos Ltd., Oracle Corporation, McAfee LLC, RSA Security LLC, and NortonLifeLock Inc. are some of the key players in the market. Several M&As along with partnerships have been undertaken by these players to facilitate customers with hi-tech and innovative products/technologies.


Insights Presented in the Report

“Amongst organization size, large enterprises category held a prominent share in the market in 2020”

Based on organization size, the cybersecurity market is classified into large enterprises and SMEs. The large enterprises segment grabbed a significant market share in 2020 and is expected to be the prominent market shareholder during the forecast period. The growth of this segment can be attributed to the increase in spending on IT infrastructure by large enterprises. Large enterprises have a large volume of data, due to which they are deploying AI and ML-based security solutions for the automation of their security platforms. Further on, large enterprises have several complex networks, servers, storage equipment, and endpoint devices, which puts them at high risk of adequate money losses in the current scenario. Thereby, the cybersecurity market for this segment is going to increase in the future.

“Amongst industry, government segment held a prominent share in the market in 2020”

On the basis of industry, the cybersecurity market is classified into banking and financial services, healthcare, information and communication technology, government, and others. The government segment held a considerable amount of market share in 2020 and is expected to show substantial growth during the forecast period. One of the major reasons for the growth of the government segment is the need to protect the huge confidential information about the countries. A secure government technology infrastructure helps support the delivery of essential schemes and services. Governments use cybersecurity for national security and the safety of the local public. Moreover, it is the duty of the government to control any disease to ensure health and well-being. Hence, a strong cybersecurity strategy is needed to protect the personal data of citizens and government data.

“North America to witness significant growth during the forecast period”

North America cybersecurity market is expected to witness a prominent CAGR during the forecast period. The growth of this market can be attributed to the rising number of high-security breaches in the region. North America has been a prime target for cybercriminals due to the presence of a high number of large, small, and medium enterprises. The growing investments by end-users and high demand for enterprise security are influencing the cybersecurity market positively. The rising number of e-commerce platforms, the availability, and the adoption of new technologies are further contributing to the growth of the North American market.

Also, North America is home to some of the major cybersecurity service and solution providers, such as Palo Alto Networks Inc., Oracle Corporation, International Business Machines Corporation, and others and they are investing heavily in developing advanced network security systems.
