The global CSPM market size is expected to grow from an estimated value of USD 4.2 billion in 2022 to USD 8.6 billion by 2027, at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 15.3% from 2022 to 2027. Low visibility across the IT infrastructure and increase in configuration errors in cloud infrastructure, absence of efficient security tools and processes to handle the cloud-based environments and developing cloud security capabilities such as easy DevSecOps integration and threat intelligence are some of the factors that are driving the market growth. However, lack of skilled expertise, and lack of awareness of cloud resources, cloud security architecture, and strategy are some of the factors that are expected to hinder the market growth.

CSPM services segment to grow at a higher CAGR during the forecast period
Professional and managed services are considered in the CSPM services segment. Services aim at training and developing expertise, providing timely upgradations to the solution, and helping customers integrate these with other Information Technology (IT) solutions. With the increasing adoption of CSPM solutions across organizations, the demand for supporting services is also expected to increase among organizations. CSPM services help companies secure their cloud platforms and environments to stop breaches from impacting their businesses. These services provide actionable insights into ineffective cloud settings, cloud security misconfigurations and deviations from recommended cloud security architecture to help organizations prevent cloud breaches.

CSPM IaaS cloud model segment to account for a higher market share during the forecast period
IaaS provides virtualized computing resources, virtual networking, virtual storage, and virtual machines; and is hosted by the cloud computing vendor. Amazon’s Elastic Compute (EC2), the Google Compute Engine, and Microsoft Azure are some of the most popular cloud infrastructure services. The use of IaaS is increasing due to the low upfront costs associated with its deployment, and enterprises do not need to maintain or purchase hardware for the same. The demand for IaaS solutions, such as CSPM, and IaaS services, such as installation, deployment, integration, and support and maintenance, is high, and thus, enterprises are adopting cloud security measures to run business-critical functions securely.

Asia Pacific to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period
With effective government regulations and technological advancements, the CSPM market is witnessing tremendous growth opportunities in this region. Various developments in Asia Pacific concerning the adoption of technologies, such as BI tools, cloud, analytics, and rapid infrastructure development. Asia Pacific is the fastest-growing region in terms of the adoption of CSPM. According to a survey by Palo Alto Networks, enterprises across four countries in Asia Pacific: Australia, China, India, and Singapore, revealed that insecure interfaces and APIs, data breaches, data losses, and misconfigurations are the top cybersecurity risks in the region. Moreover, with the rising intensity and complexity of cyberattacks, data security concerns of businesses in this region have been escalating. Thus, eminent security vendors, such as Trend Micro, are expanding in this region to leverage the benefits of CSPM for enhanced profitability.
