Critical Infrastructure Protection Market Size & Growth (2021-2026)

The global Critical Infrastructure Protection Market was worth US$ 128.9 billion in 2020, and it is estimated to reach US$ 152.3 billion, increasing with a CAGR of 3.4% between 2021 and 2026.

The rise of cyber threats and security breaches is one of the main growth drivers of the global critical infrastructure protection market.

Critical Infrastructure Protection is a concept related to alerting and responding to serious incidents in a region. It includes banking and finance, transportation, food production and distribution, energy, water systems, law enforcement, federal and municipal services, and additional emergency services for the public and private sectors. These Critical Infrastructure Protection systems are necessary for the minimal functioning of the economy and government. In short, these systems serve as the backbone of the national economy, security, and wealth. Protecting critical infrastructure is becoming more automated and interconnected. However, improvements in technology related to infrastructure protection have created new vulnerabilities to equipment failure, human error, and physical and cyber-attacks. Several public and private companies are adopting technology to preserve critical infrastructure from malicious entities, create immediate responses to block suspicious activity, and protect critical systems.

Recent Developments

  • In December 2019, Raytheon released a disassembled soldier training simulator, a virtual synthetic training environment soldier trainer.
  • In September 2019, the US Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) and BAE Systems partnered to develop a new space situational awareness tool.
  • In July 2019, Thales launched the Gemalto Digital ID Wallet to allow citizens to easily verify their identity and access official documents from a single secure platform on their smartphone.


The global critical infrastructure protection market is growing as the need to protect and protect sensitive data increases. The implementation of cloud-based services and the implementation of government regulations and practices for homeland security are further accelerating market growth. Increased awareness of data security and privacy is driving the adoption of critical infrastructure protections that enhance market growth. The growing adoption of IoT and the growing need to protect and protect data is accelerating the growth of the critical infrastructure protection market. Additionally, there is a rising demand for effective cybersecurity solutions that drive the emergence of advanced cyberattacks and the growth of the critical infrastructure protection business. There is a surge in demand for critical infrastructure protection markets where the need to protect financial, government, energy, transportation and other critical infrastructure operations. The critical infrastructure protection market is expected to grow to increase concerns about data security and protection and reduce the risk of data theft. The growing popularity of the Internet of Things (IoT) is another factor driving the growth of the market. The expansion of the critical infrastructure protection market is explained by growing cyber threats and the implementation of government ordinances and practices for national security. Rising IT spending, the implementation of automation solutions, and efficient policies and regulations are also driving the industry.

Increasing the opponent's ability to penetrate systems that control all areas of critical infrastructure is a nurturing problem in many industries. In light of this, investments are expanding to encourage cybersecurity R&D to launch advanced critical infrastructure protection solutions. In addition, the government has implemented favorable asset safety policies to support the need for Critical Infrastructure Protection. The rise of IoT applications is driving the growth of the critical infrastructure protection market, with more and more cases of terrorism, virtual and cyber-attacks. It is also accelerating the growth of the critical infrastructure protection market again as security concerns rise in various industries such as transportation, oil and gas, telecommunications, energy, and more. Additionally, increased government investment in critical infrastructure data is another factor driving the growth of the global Critical Infrastructure Protection market. The growing need for physical and cyber security has the potential to drive market demand in the future. The key drivers of the critical infrastructure market are government regulations and practices and the growing number of cyber threats, as many of these organizations are implementing critical infrastructure solutions. As cyberattacks in critical infrastructure areas increase, investment in the physical and information security markets is expected to increase over the forecast period. Critical infrastructure protection solutions implement traditional and modern cybersecurity technologies to ensure greater reliability and better long-term protection.


The lack of technically trained workforce and information on industrial control systems is a key factor impeding the growth of the global critical infrastructure protection market. Lack of interoperability between security products and high implementation costs are limiting the growth of the industry. It is also difficult to add modern security to existing critical infrastructure. Lack of financial investment and technical complexity in implementing Critical Infrastructure Protection security in developing countries are expected to slow the growth of this market.
