"Continuously evolving cyber-attack techniques is a major driving factor for the deep packet inspection and processing market”
The market is estimated to grow from USD 7.01 billion in 2016 to USD 18.60 billion by 2021, at an estimated CAGR of 21.6%. The need for robust cyber security solutions and network performance management & optimization solutions to efficiently manage today’s complex networking environment in compliance with the standards and regulations are some of the driving factors for the deep packet inspection and processing market.

“Data Loss/Leak Prevention (DLP) management to gain maximum traction during the forecast period”
The data loss/leak prevention and management is one of the fastest-growing application based on deep packet inspection technology. DLP techniques have evolved from reactive protection to proactive protection-based model, making it addressable to the latest technologies and trends such as Bring Your Own Device (BYOD), mobile device penetration, and ever growing sophistication of data breaches and Advanced Persistent Threats (APTs). Other growth factors of DLP techniques are increasing need of data loss security in corporate arena, Growing trend in BYOD, and need for filtration of data at rest on the corporate network are some of the driving factors for the adoption of DLP applications.

“Among the verticals, telecom and IT is expected to be the largest contributor”
Network performance management and optimization solutions are intensively used in this sector to ensure improved Quality of Service (QoS) and Quality of Experience (QoE), which makes this sector the highest contributor in the deep packet inspection and processing market.

“The deep packet inspection and processing technology is expected to grow fastest in the APAC region”
Factors such as continual growth in the mobile network, increasing complexity of business, unregulated nature of internet, and growth in the adoption of BYOD are driving the deep packet inspection and processing market in the APAC region.
