Global Open Source Intelligence (OSINT) Market is valued at approximately USD 6.2 billion in 2019 and is anticipated to grow with a healthy growth rate of more than 24.5% over the forecast period 2020-2027. Open-source intelligence (OSINT) is derived from data and information gathered from publicly available sources that can be used in an intelligence context. The main aim of an open-source intelligence tool is to rearrange and improve the existing raw data into the required format to facilitate informed & better decision-making processes in a lesser amount of time. The use of technology has transformed the process, transforming tedious, time-consuming efforts to master several data sources. The benefits provided by these technological platforms include the structuring of a massive amount of data and to easily process large volumes of data. Therefore, the demand for Open Source Intelligence (OSINT) is significantly rising around the world. Furthermore, the rising cyber threats, terrorism, and other illegal practices, along with increased availability of open-source public data are the few factors responsible for the CAGR of the market during the forecast period. For instance, as per Symantec report 2019, in 2018 about 545,231 ransomwares were registered across the globe, of which China was the highest ransomware attack country representing 16.9% of total ransomware whereas Brazil and Mexico ranked 4th and 6th. This, in turn, is expected to promote the demand for Open Source Intelligence (OSINT), globally. Amidst the COVID-19 crisis, the industry is poised for sustainable growth despite the foreseeable economic turbulence. The implementation of remote working policy, due to lockdown is placing unforeseen stress on remote networking technologies and triggering operational technology (OT) security risk concerns over the vulnerable network security. This is likely to accelerate the market growth in the upcoming years. However, lack of investments and expertise in analytics and concern related to data quality issues are the few factors impeding the market growth over the forecast period of 2020-2027.
