Significant rise in mobile-based business critical applications require more secure endpoint protection is driving the overall growth of the penetration testing market
The global penetration testing market size is projected to grow from USD 1.7 billion in 2020 to USD 4.5 billion by 2025, at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 21.8% during the forecast period. The market growth is driven by various factors, such as the need to secure endpoint protection due to significant rise in mobile-based business critical applications and enterprises moving toward implementing security measures due to increased sophistication in cyberattacks.

By application area, the mobile application penetration testing segment to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period
Mobile application penetration testing is basically for mobile-based applications which is done by trying to break into various mobile applications through different vectors. The methodology is a security testing, which is used to analyze security from the inside of a mobile environment. The mobile application penetration testing methodology concentrates on file system, hardware, and network security. The test results can provide an organization with knowledge of the vulnerabilities in the mobile application, loopholes, and attack vectors before delivering an app to the user, thus offering insights on how to mitigate the potential risks of mobile applications and secure the user credentials associated with it. Mobile application users are becoming aware of the different threats and thus the deployment of mobile application penetration testing is rapidly increasing. Therefore, the mobile application penetration segment is expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period.

By deployment mode, the cloud segment to grow at a higher rate during the forecast period
In the cloud deployment mode, instead of implementing the software solution on the local hardware, businesses subscribe to the solution hosted on a third-party remotely located server. By opting for cloud-based solutions, organizations can avoid costs related to maintenance of infrastructure and technical staff. Cloud-based platforms are beneficial for organizations that have strict budgets for security investments. Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (SMEs) deploy their identity verification solutions on the cloud, as it saves them from investing their capital on security infrastructures. Hence, the cloud deployment segment is expected to grow at a higher CAGR.

Asia Pacific to register the highest growth rate during the forecast period
Asia Pacific (APAC) has great scope for the growth of the penetration testing market. The penetration testing market in APAC is anticipated to grow significantly, due to increasing government investments in improving security posture, increased sophistication of cyberattacks, and the amalgamation of technologies, such as Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) with penetration testing.

The fast expansion of regional enterprises in APAC is another crucial variant contributing to the growth of the penetration testing market.
