The global cybersecurity services market size will grow from $81 billion in 2022 to $90.56 billion in 2023 at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 11.8%. The Russia-Ukraine war disrupted the chances of global economic recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic, at least in the short term. The war between these two countries has led to economic sanctions on multiple countries, a surge in commodity prices, and supply chain disruptions, causing inflation across goods and services and affecting many markets across the globe. The global cybersecurity services market size is expected to grow to $139.24 billion in 2027 at a CAGR of 11.4%.
The increasing instances of massive cyber-attacks are a key factor driving the growth of the cybersecurity services market. The primary motive behind cybercrimes is political competition, financial gain, negative credibility, foreign competition and radical involvement of religious groups. Most cyber-attacks are for financial gain. WannaCry, Petya, NotPetya, and BadRabbit are some of the main ransomware products that have targeted large-scale businesses and government organizations. According to cyber security experts, ransomware threats rose by 40% to 199.7 million attacks worldwide in Q3 of 2020. In Q3 2020, Ryuk ransomware threats rose to 67.3 million, which is 33.7% of all ransomware incidents this year. The ransomware implications included inaccessibility to various municipal facilities, information leakage, and economic loss. Therefore, the increasing instances of massive cyber-attacks compel companies to integrate cybersecurity in their systems and functionality to prevent crashing thereby driving the growth of the cybersecurity services market.
Use of Pirated and open source cybersecurity solutions, Dearth of cybersecurity expertise for proactive strategic planning, Limited security budget among SMEs, Lack of interoperability with the existing information systems, High cost of innovations and budget constraints for SMEs, and Lack of training and inadequate workforce are the major factors hampering the growth of the cybersecurity services market.
Leveraging AI, machine learning, and blockchain technologies for cyber defense is a key trend in the cybersecurity services market. Cybersecurity vendors integrate artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning principles into their solutions to tackle crucial hyper-connected workplace risks, with quicker identification, prevention, and responsiveness capabilities, the advances in technology, such as AI and machine learning, turn the tables against cybercrime. Vade Secure is one of the world's largest e-mail security firms, leveraging artificial intelligence and machine learning to defend more than 600 million mailboxes in 76 countries from a range of attacks comprising spear phishing, ransomware, and malware. In June 2020, the firm received an investment of more than $75 million from General Catalyst and plans to extend the use of AI to secure inboxes all over the globe. Cybersecurity specialists are therefore leveraging AI and machine learning technology to resolve the emerging cyber threats facing individuals, companies, and governments.
