“Convergence of IT and OT is expected to drive the overall growth of the ICS security market.”
The global Industrial Control Systems (ICS) security market is expected to grow from USD 13.20 billion in 2018 to USD 18.05 billion by 2023, at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 6.5% during the forecast period. The ICS security market growth is driven by various factors, including huge investments by organizations in Industry 4.0, convergence of Information Technology (IT) and Operational Technology (OT), and rise in the number of cyber threats on the critical infrastructure. However, growing concerns about power outage, due to frequent security updates, and legacy ICS being more prone to cyber-attacks may hinder the growth of the market.

The encryption solution is expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period
The encryption solution is expected to be the fastest growing segment in the ICS security market. The ICS security market by solution has been segmented into antimalware/antivirus, Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) mitigation, encryption, firewall, Identity and Access Management (IAM), Intrusion Detection System/Intrusion Prevention System (IDS/IPS), security and vulnerability management, security configuration management, Security Information and Event Management (SIEM), whitelisting, and others. Encrypting ICS helps mitigate common attacks, such as data thefts and DDoS attacks, and provides high reliability, performance, and availability of the network on-demand.

The energy and utilities vertical is expected to hold the largest market share during the forecast period
Companies in the energy and utilities vertical are adopting next-generation ICS security solutions and services to safeguard the industrial network, endpoint, application, data, and cloud environment. Energy and utilities plants and organizations are highly prone to cyber-attacks and physical attacks. Any cyber-attack can bring down the entire plant and result in health hazards, environmental hazards, and huge financial loss. On the other hand, the manufacturing vertical is expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. The growth in the manufacturing vertical in the ICS security market can be attributed to the increasing cyber-attacks on critical manufacturing industries, such as automotive, chemical, and mining.

The Middle East and Africa (MEA) is expected to record the fastest growth rate during the forecast period
MEA is expected to have the fastest growth rate during the forecast period, due to the wide-scale adoption of ICS security solutions in every vertical in the region for protecting the network infrastructure, applications, and other critical infrastructure from vulnerabilities and preventing attackers from exploiting security flaws to illegally access critical information. Key MEA countries that are showing high adoption of ICS security solutions and services include the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA), United Arab Emirates (UAE), Israel, and South Africa. Moreover, North America is projected to hold the largest market size during the forecast period.
