Mobile anti-malware is a software that protects smartphones from counterproductive programs such as malware, spyware, worms and adware. An anti-malware scans mobile phones for malicious software to keep the system and its data protected. The software is either pre-installed in a device or can be purchased through a cloud service. It is concerned with the prevention of unsolicited and undesirable applications, push messages, viruses, malware short message services and Trojan virus.
Increasing usage of smartphones and the internet is one of the key factors driving the market growth. Since malware gets loaded on a device through the internet, increasing usage of the same exposes a device and heightens the risk of malware attacks. Furthermore, the rising trend of using cloud storage and the Internet of Things (IoT) platforms have enhanced the dependency of users on smartphones, thus making the devices more vulnerable to malware attacks. Malware also attacks through sources that have unauthorized codes such as certain social media websites and e-mail spam. Therefore, cases of personal data-breaches and cloud data breaches are significantly driving the demand for mobile anti-malware programs. Moreover, technological advancements leading to the development of more user-centric features is also favoring the growth of the market. Other factors driving the product demand include rising disposable incomes and growing trend of digitization. The rising adoption rate of Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) technology among organizations, which necessitates the installation of anti-malware to prevent unauthorized user access and data theft, is also expected to create a positive outlook for the market.
