Global Encryption Software Market Size & Growth (2021 – 2026)

The global encryption software market is foreseen to develop from $ 9.8 billion in 2019 to $ 20.1 billion in 2025, at an annual expansion rate (CAGR) of 15.5% from 2020 to 2025.

Encryption is a process in which the service provider converts information into codes to block unauthorized access. Data must be protected and that can be present on any type of electronic device. Each person and commercial company has their personal information, including data, which can vary from emails to WhatsApp messages and bank details which must be kept securely between the parties involved in the transaction. This process is done by encryption, the information is sent via electronic length codes which are not readable by anyone who tries to access this information. Once the sender sends the information in the form of codes, this information can only be decrypted by the sender or the recipient so that it is readable.

Encryption software helps protect the confidentiality of information stored in folders and files, as well as data in transit over networks or data in transit based on an organization's compliance and security requirements. Encrypts and decrypts data at rest and in transit using software. Therefore, by making the data unreadable even for the authorized person, the encryption software helps to improve the security of sensitive data. The adoption of encryption software is likely to expand with the augmenting incidence of cyber-attacks across the globe.

Software publishers around the world have quickly adopted encryption software to increase business competition and improve data security. Software encryption is one of the fastest emerging solutions for endpoint data security. Growing concerns over data breaches and privacy compliance regulations are making companies more willing to adopt software-based encryption solutions for compliance, greater data security, and greater operational flexibility. In addition, the global encryption software market is also growing due to the increasing adoption of the latest technologies, such as cloud, virtualization and mobility.

Recent Developments:

  • In April 2019, Thales Group (France), parent company of Thales e-Security, finalized the acquisition of Gemalto (Netherlands), leader in digital identity and security. The acquisition would create a world-class leader with an unrivaled portfolio of technology-based digital identity and security solutions, such as biometrics, data protection and, more broadly, cybersecurity.
  • In December 2018, Symantec (USA) partnered with Fortinet (USA), a leading provider of automated and integrated IT security solutions to provide customers with the most complete and robust security solutions. The partnership would provide essential security controls in the cloud, network and endpoint environments that are critical to the application of the Zero Trust security framework.
  • In May 2018, IBM (USA) collaborated with Cisco (USA) to integrate their security suite into Cisco security products for faster and more accurate threat detection and response. Collaboration would improve product interaction, service integration and threat intelligence.

Market growth and trends:

In the application encryption software market, it offers disk encryption, file/folder encryption, database, communication and cloud segments. The cloud encryption segment is the fastest growing segment on the market due to the growing need to secure confidential data worldwide. Organizations around the world have embraced the cloud at a rapid pace and are firmly embracing various cloud environments, ranging from private and hybrid to public to store their vast data.

Most providers in the encryption software market offer cloud-based encryption software for high profits and to effectively and securely guarantee data confidentiality. The adoption of cloud-based encryption software solutions is expected to grow due to its benefits, such as ease of data maintenance, cost-effectiveness, scalability, and efficient management.

Market Drivers and Restraints:

  • Growing concern about the loss of critical data in a local environment.
  • Exploiting big data analytics poses a risk to the cloud environment.
  • Government regulations promoting the implementation of encryption solutions.
  • Lack of budget to adopt the best encryption solutions in its category.
  • Lack of knowledge of encryption and performance issues among companies.
