“ICS market is projected to grow at CAGR of 5.8% from 2020 to 2025”
The ICS market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.81% from USD 16.9 billion in 2020 to USD 22.5 billion. Increasing cyber-attacks on various industries to increase the industrial cybersecurity market.

“ICS market for application security expected to grow at highest CAGR during forecast period”
Application security refers to the security of software and code from external and internal threats, including web attacks, DDoS attacks, site scraping, and fraud. It involves security policies to protect industrial applications and confidential information from both random and targeted application security attacks. It is a structured practice for the protection of applications, using hardware, software, and operational policies. Application security comprises the protection of SCADA applications and critical controllers, which are responsible for the proper running of industrial processes. A few of the major players who offer application security are CyberArk Software Inc. (US), Belden Incorporated (US), and Cisco Systems Inc. (US). Application security is important because more applications are available, nowadays, over various networks that can be connected to the cloud due to which there might be increased attacks and data breaches. Application security is of different types, namely, authentication, authorization, encryption, logging, and application security testing. Application developers that create different applications use application security for testing the software solutions they develop to ensure that there are no vulnerabilities in the newly developed application.

“ICS market for solutions & services offering accounted for largest share in 2020”
Cyberattacks and threats against critical infrastructure have increased over the years due to the growing use of connected devices and IT systems. Instead of stealing data, digital attackers target to access industrial control systems, such as SCADA, DCS, and PLC, on which organizations rely for managing their industrial processes. Industries such as pharmaceuticals, oil & gas, manufacturing, and electric utilities use control systems. These systems are connected with a large number of sensors with the help of network infrastructure (either wired or wireless systems). Any kind of alteration in control network infrastructure by infrastructure industries to meet their business needs might lead to an increase in cyberattacks.

Based on solutions, the industrial cybersecurity market has been broadly segmented into solutions and services. DDoS, IDS/IPS, firewalls, UTM, antivirus/malware, SIEM, virtualization security, application whitelisting, DLP, update and patch management, and SCADA encryption are some of the key solutions, while managed and professional services are among a few of the major services considered in this chapter. Companies such as IBM Inc. (US), Trend Micro Inc. (Japan), Thales Group (France), AlienVault (US), Positive Technologies (US), and McAfee LLC (US) offer SCADA network security solutions

“ICS market for transportation application to grow at highest CAGR during forecast period”
The ICS market transportation application is expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. The growing dependence of people on technologies and web-based applications has led to an increase in the risk of cyber threats. Road, rail, and metro networks are physically integrated with each other and with other modes of transport. In all transportation modes, such as highways, aviation, maritime, surface transportation pipelines and industrial control systems, are used.
Cyberattacks on transportation systems can lead to a delay in operation, theft of data, and passenger injury, among others. With the adoption of new technologies in transportation, the complexity has increased. This has raised security challenges in terms of response to threats and prevention of threats by using the available resources. The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) (US) has introduced several relevant security rules and regulations to secure transportation systems from cyberattacks. Companies such as Transdyn (US) and GE Transportation (US) help transit authorities to control real-time train power control systems, wayside signals, create new train schedules, automatically change tracks, and monitor trains from a single control unit

“APAC is expected to be the fastest-growing market for ICS during forecast period”
APAC comprises emerging economies such as China and India. These countries have the presence of a large number of small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs), which collectively account for the employment of more than 70% of the total population in the countries. These SMEs provide growth opportunities for vendors in the industrial cybersecurity market who provide solutions and services to the customers from the manufacturing, transportation, and energy industries. In the 2017 Union Budget, the Singaporean government announced an investment of USD 1.76 billion in economy strategies for the next 4 years. Some portion of this investment is also dedicated to the Cybersecurity Agency (CSA) of Singapore. However, the need for huge investment associated with the successful deployment of an industrial control system security project restricts SMEs from adopting a strong security practice within their organizations, but factors such as increasing complexity of businesses, rapid shifting toward digitization and virtualization, and growing trend of BYOD are expected to encourage SMEs to adopt various industrial control solutions and services.
