Also, the increase in attack on critical infrastructures & public utilities is another significant factor resulting in the high-level adaptation of the products and services.
The market is primarily driven by government initiatives to prevent territorial & cross-border wars. The rising instances of terrorist attacks, wars between neighboring countries, domestic wars due to political unrest, communism, riots, & others have increased the growth rate.

Geographically the market is bifurcated into North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and the Rest of World (RoW) regional segment. North America was the highest revenue-generating region in 2018.
