Market Overview

The internet of things (IoT) market was valued at USD 1490.34 million in 2019, and it is expected to reach a value of USD 7994.97 million by 2025, registering a CAGR of 31.87% over the forecast period (2020 - 2025).  The emerging applications and business models, coupled with the falling device costs, have been driving the adoption rate of IoT, which is, consequently, influencing the number of connected devices, such as connected cars, machines, meters, wearable, and consumer electronics. 

  •  Increasing dependency on the connected devices is creating the need to keep the connected device secure. According to Ericsson, it is estimated that nearly 400 million IoT devices, with cellular connections in 2016, are projected to reach 1.5 billion by 2022. This robust growth is expected to be driven by the increased industry focus on deploying a connected ecosystem and the standardization of 3GPP cellular IoT technologies.
  • In 2019, for instance, Symantec Corp. announced a new service that enables its Cloud Workload Protection (CWP) solution and AMZN GuardDuty from Amazon, to provide automated remediation and enhanced threat intelligence for Amazon Web Services (AWS) workloads and storage. This new service is anticipated to help enterprises to navigate the complex security landscape, allowing AWS customers to automate and streamline critical components of cloud security.
  • Increasing number data breaches, emergence of smart cities, are some of the factors driving the market.
  • .However, factors, such as the dearth of skilled workforce and less awareness about the importance of the IoT security solutions hinder the market growth.

Scope of the Report

IoT security is the technological area concerned with mitigating cyber threats regarding connected devices and networks in the internet of things. IoT involves adding internet connectivity to a system of interrelated computing devices, mechanical and digital machines, objects, and/or people. This interconnectivity of devices through the internet opens them up to a number of serious vulnerabilities if they are not properly protected. This market is characterized by growing levels of product penetration, moderate/high product differentiation, and high levels of competition.

Key Market Trends

Network Security Is Expected to Witness the Fastest Growth Rate

  • IoT networks are the prominent targets and the primary concern for enterprises across the world. The network security segment covers various subsegments, such as firewalls, servers, VPN, IDS, IPS, WIDPS, gateway, and network hardware. The growing trend of adopting BYOD and IoTs in enterprises is increasing the security concerns of attacks on enterprise networks. For instance, according to IT Candor, the size of the global network hardware market during fiscal 2018 was valued at USD 181 billion. Enterprise network hardware alone was valued at USD 52 billion.
  • According to the IBM X-Force threat intelligence report, in 2018 it was recorded an increase of 5,400% in the number of IoT vulnerabilities over the number reported just five years earlier. Mirai attack, back in 2016, is a prominent example of using IoT to attack servers. The malware used botnet, which enlisted over 150,000 devices to send 1TB of data per second at the vendor's servers.
  • To date, the majority of the IoT based attacks have occurred in DDoS form. According to Symantec's report, three kinds of DDoS associated malware, such as LightAidra, Kaiten, and Mirai, collectively accounted for nearly 80% of the 2018 year's IoT attacks.
  • Many vendors in the market are emphasizing on providing solutions specific to tackle issues related to network security. For instance, Palo Alto Networks is delivering IoT security as an integrated service through the firewall; the capability was due to the recent acquisition of Zingbox by Palo Alto Networks.Such initiatives by various vendors are expected to mitigate the network threats over the forecast period and drive the market demand for the network security segment.
IoT Security Market Trends

Asia-Pacific Occupies The Largest Market Share

  • Asia-Pacific is the most prominent region for the adoption of IoT, owing to smart city projects being built in the region. The massive industrialization and the rising number of mobile device users in Asia-Pacific also indicate that the region is expected to witness significant growth.
  • According to the Cisco VNI report, by 2022, the region may have 2.6 billion internet users (62% of the population), up from 1.7 billion (41% of the population) in 2017. The region is also estimated to have 13.1 billion networked devices/connections by 2022, up from 8.6 billion in 2017. Asia-Pacific, however, is 35% more likely to be targeted by advanced cyber attacks when compared to the world, according to a report by FireEye.
  • According to the National Institute of Information and Communication Technology (NIICT), there has been a significant increase in the number of cyberattacks to IoT Devices. NICT predicts that the number of cyberattacks may reach 30 billion devices by 2020, when compared to 15 billion devices in 2015. Such instances are propelling the government and the related organizations to deploy IoT security solutions to mitigate the damages.
  • With a rising trend toward IoT, China’s technological innovation has led to increasing demand in the smart home market from Chinese consumers. The country’s central smart home systems consist of lighting control systems, security systems, entertainment systems (audio and video), home appliances, and others.
