The global cybersecurity market size is projected to grow from USD 190.4 billion in 2023 to USD 298.5 billion by 2028 at a CAGR of 9.4% during the forecast period. The market growth in cybersecurity is fueled by factors driven by increased target-based cyber-attacks, protection of business assets from growing threats, rising IoT trends and the growing need for automated cybersecurity, growing demand for cyber-savvy boards, and complying with government regulations and requirements.

“By offering, the services segment will grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period.”
In the cybersecurity market, by offering, the services segment is anticipated to grow at the highest CAGR due to a combination of factors. As cyber threats become increasingly sophisticated, there is a growing demand for expert services that provide advanced protection and mitigation strategies. It includes a need for continuous monitoring, threat intelligence, and incident response, which specialized cybersecurity services effectively deliver. Moreover, organizations undergoing digital transformation often lack the in-house expertise required to manage complex cybersecurity landscapes. The gap is being filled by external cybersecurity service providers, who offer tailored solutions and support.

Furthermore, the evolving regulatory landscape across various industries necessitates ongoing compliance and risk management, areas where cybersecurity services play a critical role. These services help organizations protect against cyber threats and ensure they remain compliant with changing regulations. The demand for specialized knowledge, coupled with the growing complexity of cyber threats and compliance requirements, drives the rapid growth of the services segment in the cybersecurity market.

“By vertical, the BFSI segment will grow at the largest market size during the forecast period.”
The BFSI sector is anticipated to hold the largest market size in the cybersecurity market among various verticals. Its prominence is due to the sector’s handling of highly sensitive and valuable financial data, making it a prime target for cyberattacks. Financial institutions are under constant threat from a range of sophisticated cyber threats like phishing, malware, and ransomware, driving the need for robust cybersecurity measures. Moreover, the BFSI sector is heavily regulated, with stringent data protection and privacy laws requiring strong security protocols to ensure compliance and avoid heavy penalties. The rapid shift towards digital banking and online financial services further escalates the risk of cyber threats, necessitating advanced cybersecurity solutions to protect customer data and maintain trust. The combination of these factors – high-value targets, stringent regulations, and the increasing digitization of financial services – contributes to the BFSI vertical commanding the largest market size.

“North America is expected to account for the largest market size during the forecasted period.”
The North American region is anticipated to dominate the cybersecurity market in terms of market size, primarily due to several contributing factors. The North American region, particularly the US, is home to numerous leading technology and cybersecurity companies, fostering a strong market for cybersecurity solutions. Additionally, North America experiences a high volume of cyber threats, which drives the demand for advanced cybersecurity measures. The region also has stringent regulatory frameworks and data protection laws, such as GDPR and CCPA, compelling organizations to invest in robust cybersecurity infrastructures to maintain compliance. Moreover, the widespread adoption of digital technologies, including cloud services and IoT devices, in finance, healthcare, and government sectors further elevates the need for comprehensive cybersecurity solutions. The combination of a technologically advanced landscape and a high incidence of cyber threats positions North America as a leader in the global cybersecurity market.

“Asia Pacific is anticipated to account for the highest CAGR during the forecasted period.”
The Asia Pacific region is anticipated to exhibit the highest CAGR in the cybersecurity market, a trend driven by several factors. Rapid economic growth in the Asia Pacific region led to a surge in digital transformation across businesses and government sectors, significantly increasing the need for robust cybersecurity measures. The growth is accompanied by a substantial rise in internet usage and mobile connectivity, expanding the potential for cyber threats. Furthermore, countries in the Asia Pacific are progressively implementing stricter data protection regulations, pushing organizations to strengthen their cybersecurity infrastructure. Additionally, as key sectors like finance, healthcare, and retail increasingly embrace digital technologies, their vulnerability to cyberattacks grows, driving the demand for advanced cybersecurity solutions. A combination of digital growth, regulatory changes, and heightened threat awareness contributes to the high projected growth rate in the cybersecurity market in the Asia Pacific region.
