The Asia-Pacific Internet security market is expected to reach around USD 60 billion by 2026, growing with a compound annual growth rate of about 16% from 2021 to 2026.
Recent Developments and Trends
In Jan 2020, Insight Partners, a private equity firm has completed the acquisition of Israel-based cybersecurity company Armis which valued around USD 1.1 billion.
As of Jan 2020, Accenture is about to acquire Symantec’s Cyber Security Services from Broadcom, Inc, strengthening the former’s ability in managed security services in terms of expecting, identifying, and counteracting the internet threats.
The main drivers of the APAC Internet security market are the increased use of the Internet due to advances in wireless communications technology, Internet security through cloud services, strict government regulations and increased financial activity online. Internet security solutions cover a wide range of industries, including banking financial institutions and services, retail, telecommunications and information technology, government, manufacturing, education, defense, aerospace and others.
The evolution of cyber threats has also created numerous government regulations. Commercial companies must meet essential safety standards. Failure to comply with these rules imposes a certain number of fines on the government. Emphasis is placed on various security guidelines and features that must be followed by various regulations such as the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPPA), the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI-DSS) and the Certification and Accreditation Process for Defense Information Assurance (DIACA). Therefore, strict government measures taken to implement compliance worldwide require companies to implement Internet security solutions for data privacy.
However, the growing demand for the complexity of Internet security industry standards, regulations and device security are some of the main factors that hinder the market growth.
Based on the type, the Asia Pacific Internet security market is divided into software, hardware and services. The software was the segment with the highest revenue in 2018, and the service segment is foreseen to record the highest growth rate during the estimated period. The increasing adoption of antivirus and firewall securities by large, small and medium enterprises has contributed to the growth of the software segment in the regional market.
Based on technology, The APAC Internet security market is classified as an authentication technology, access control technology, content filtering and encryption technology. Of these, the authentication segment was the most profitable sector in 2018, owing to the strict login mechanisms required to protect the confidential information from extruders or unauthorized access.
Based on the application, the defense/government applications sector led the regional market in 2018, representing almost 27.0% of total sales. High spending on security solutions and concerns about data leakage from intelligence, research and development and financial activities can lead to cyber terrorism, which is acting as a catalyst for the development of this sector.
As the economic importance of Asia Pacific in security matters increases, the country's national cybersecurity efforts have been activated. Countries like India and China are rapidly shifting towards digitalization in all sectors, and internet security activity is more likely to increase in the region. Therefore, the governments of China and India are working to develop reliable and robust cybersecurity policies and action plans, which are foreseen to reduce the impact of cybercrime in the region.
The APAC internet security market is led by important companies such as MacAfee, AVG Technologies, Palo Alto Networks, Kaspersky Lab, Trend Micro Inc., Symantec Corporation, Cisco Systems, IBM Corporation, Dell Root 9B, Fortinet Inc., Imperva Inc., and CyberArk Software Ltd.
