The global smart grid security market reached a value of US$ 6.3 Billion in 2020. Smart grid security refers to various solutions and services that are used to secure smart power grids, communications and information technology (IT) systems. It ensures that there is efficient, reliable, cost-effective and clean distribution of energy throughout the grid. It consists of advanced components and control methods and integrated communications systems with improved interfaces for measurement and sensing. It employs various technological solutions, such as antivirus, antimalware, firewalls, identity and access management (IAM), encryption, intrusion detection and data loss prevention (DLP) systems. Various subsystems, including Industrial Control System (ICS), advanced metering infrastructure and home energy management systems, are also used to ensure efficient smart grid security.
The rising demand for electricity and power generation in both developed and developing countries, and the increasing incidences of cyberattacks, currently represent as the key factors driving the growth of the market. This has led to the widespread adoption of smart grid security systems to secure communications and smart grid deployments. Furthermore, increasing utilization of cloud- and web-based applications across various industrial sectors is also providing a boost to the market growth. Consumers are implementing these security solutions with their connected devices to safeguard the home area network (HAN) and ensure the privacy and protection of data. Additionally, various technological advancements, such as the integration of Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) systems with the Internet of Things (IoT), are creating a positive outlook for the market. Other factors, including rapid urbanization, along with the implementation of favorable government initiatives to digitize the power sector with smart grid technologies, are projected to drive the market further. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the global smart grid security market to exhibit strong growth during the next five years.
