The exponential rise in the sophistication of cyberattacks and huge monetary losses due to these attacks will drive the overall PKI market
The global Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) market size is expected to grow USD 1.7 billion in 2019 to USD 3.6 billion by 2024, at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 15.1% during the forecast period. Various factors such as exponential rise in the sophistication level of cyberattacks and huge monetary losses due to these attacks are expected to drive the market. However, lack of awareness among organizations about the importance of PKI certificates may restrain the market growth.

The solution helps enterprises validate the identity of the transactions between the individuals as well as preventing any unauthorized access across organizations networks, servers, and other infrastructure. The solutions also provide the framework for the organizations in managing the keys for public key encryption and validates users based on the certificates issued by the certificate authorities. Hence, organizations are adopting PKI solutions to protect their infrastructure from identity-related cyberattacks.

Among deployment type, cloud deployment segment to grow at a higher CAGR during the forecast period
Under deployment type, PKI market is segmented by cloud and on-premises segments. The cloud deployment type is set to grow at a higher CAGR during the forecast period. The deployment of cloud-based PKI solutions is done through the internet, where software, infrastructure, platforms, devices, and other resources are provided as services on a pay-per-use basis by consumers. An external PKI vendor provides software, hardware, backup, disaster recovery, and other infrastructure to the organizations who pay for their solutions and services, which would otherwise become a burden for owners of on-premises PKI solutions. Cloud-based systems are comparatively less expensive than on-premises deployment, thus permitting businesses to reduce IT expenses, including hardware and support staff. Owing to these factors, organizations are adopting the cloud-based deployment type for deploying PKI solutions on a large scale.
