The global deep packet inspection and processing market is expected to grow at a CAGR of around 25% during 2021-2026. Keeping in mind the uncertainties of COVID-19, we are continuously tracking and evaluating the direct as well as the indirect influence of the pandemic on different end-use industries. These insights are included in the report as a major market contributor.

Deep packet inspection (DPI) is a technique of decoding computer network traffic and blocking or re-routing packets with specific data or code payloads from passing through the inspection point. It enables end users in internet data mining, eavesdropping, internet censorship, and advanced network management and security operations. As a result, this technique is extensively used to detect attack signs in specialized cybersecurity products, such as intrusion detection systems (IDS), intrusion prevention systems (IPS) and advanced firewalls.

Deep Packet Inspection and Processing Market Trends:
DPI is employed in the telecommunication and information technology (IT) sectors wherein internet service providers (ISPs) use it to profile networked applications. ISPs rely on DPI to offer enhanced lawful interception, targeted advertising, quality of service (QoS), copyright enforcement, policy definition and tiered services. Increasing instances of cybercrimes, a growing number of wireless broadband users and the development of data-intensive applications are among the key factors bolstering the market growth. Apart from this, as governing agencies deal with confidential data, there is an increase in the demand for DPI to strengthen censorship security and surveillance. Furthermore, it also finds applications in the corporate sector to monitor users and restrict their access to certain websites. Besides this, the outbreak of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19), consequent lockdowns imposed by governments of numerous countries, growing adoption of the remote working model and increasing network traffic have escalated the demand for DPI to improve QoS and reduce network congestion.
