The global IoT security market exhibited strong growth during 2015-2020. The Internet of Things (IoT) security is a technological solution used for safeguarding networks and connected mechanical or digital devices. The security solutions aim to eradicate vulnerabilities and equip devices to identify, resist and recover from cyber-attacks. These security solutions offer identity access management, data encryption and tokenization, intrusion prevention system and security analytics through antimalware, antivirus and firewalls. Owing to this, these solutions find extensive application across several industries, including energy and utilities, manufacturing, automotive, transportation, etc.
The rising threat of cyber terrorism, along with the rapid adoption of IoT technologies across industries, is one of the key factors driving the growth of the market. The construction of smart cities and increasing automation in various industry verticals are creating an imminent need for enhanced and effective security solutions to safeguard highly sensitive personal and organizational data from malware injection. This, in confluence with the emergence of several new trends, such as Bring Your Own Device (BYOD), especially in the corporate organizational setups, is significantly favoring the market growth. Organizations are thus increasingly encouraging the deployment of IoT security solutions to manage communications and digital identities of their employees across on-premises, cloud and hybrid environments. Other factors, including advancements in 4G and 5G technologies and proliferation of social media platforms resulting in the rising number of identity and data thefts, are projected to drive the market further. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the global IoT security market to grow at a CAGR of around 25% during the forecast period (2021-2026).
