MARKET DRIVERS:

An increase in vulnerabilities to encourage patch management solutions and the deployment of third-party applications are propelling the patch management market growth.

In addition, the growing adoption of cloud solutions is driving the growth of the worldwide patch management market. As the cloud computing industry expands, businesses are experimenting with various cloud models in search of the best combination of functionality, flexibility, and investment protection. The patch management industry is primarily driven by cybercriminals exploiting vulnerabilities in unpatched systems. The requirement for effective patch management systems rises as the number of interdependent and interconnected virtual devices, and infrastructures grow.

With new security and compliance standards emerging and SMEs in the region adopting digital technology, the need to maintain systems up to date to satisfy regulations is growing. Patch management systems in SMEs would remove the need for manual patching of detected holes or nodes, which is impractical owing to their small I.T. staff. In addition, the market has seen a shift toward automation among firms as a significant trend. Businesses are paving their path toward automation to attain optimal efficiency, increased production, and lower operating costs, one of the key trends observed across all major industry verticals.

An increasing number of industrial sector companies globally significantly promote the patch management market growth.

In addition, the growing prevalence of improving organizations' productivity by following strategies is accelerating market growth. Also, the rise in the demand for the internet of things is lavishing the market's demand. Growth opportunities for the market lie in the surge in the Government's investments to increase the economy. Furthermore, adopting the latest technology and innovative features in computer network systems bolsters the patch management market demand.

The market participants may deploy, utilize, and manage I.T. resources across their on-premises data center and a suitable public cloud using a hybrid cloud. The demand for public cloud solutions is increasing, which means more opportunities for industry participants. For market expansion, the trend of moving from manual patch management to automated patch management for frequent patch scans and applications is opportunistic. The company's I.T. systems are being hacked at an increasing rate due to increased vulnerabilities to cause harm. The software program must regularly update new features to comply with the standards. The program will constantly be updated with the latest standards, security, and system insights due to the automatic procedure. These features are boosting the market.

MARKET RESTRAINTS:

However, the need for more skilled technicians to handle complex issues in real time is restraining the growth of the global patch management market. Furthermore, lack of standardization is another factor limiting the market's growth. However, the growing usage of smartphones, tablets, and laptops creates chances for growing eventually. On the other hand, ransomware attacks are on the rise, making it difficult for organizations to maintain their servers and P.C.s, which is challenging and time-consuming. In addition, patch testing challenges and a need for cybersecurity awareness among consumers limit the market's growth.

Impact of COVID-19 on the global patch management market:

COVID-19 is an incomparable global public health emergency that has impacted nearly every sector, with long-term consequences expected to threaten industry development over the forecast period. Patch management is obtaining, testing, and installing other updates on existing applications and technical instruments on a desktop, allowing the device to stay updated on current patches and evaluate appropriate patches. The explosion in connectivity and the widespread transition to online business have increased the likelihood of cyberattacks. They've even added a slew of digital threats.

The pandemic has made it difficult for companies worldwide to continue working after major closures of offices and other facilities. The information technologies on which they have long relied on their data centers, cloud networks, departmental computers, software updates, and the wireless devices on which their now-disconnected workers rely to remain connected to each other, and the company's data becomes ever more critical. Tech providers perform patch management to monitor the more recent software implementations, analyze the software applications, and aid in the detection of any possible security flaws. As for this pandemic, the Patch management market has had a downturn, but the Patch management market has had positive growth towards market development after this pandemic.

This research report on the global patch management market has been segmented and sub-segmented based on the vertical, application, deployment, end-user, and region.

Patch Management Market – By Vertical:

  • BFSI
  • Healthcare & Life sciences
  • Telecommunications and ITES
  • Government and defense
  • Education

Based on the vertical, the BFSI segment is expected to lead the global patch management market with the largest share during the assessment period. This segment compacts with a considerable volume of sensitive and unofficial financial data.

The enterprises in this segment insist on security policy management solutions to confirm irreversible security. Therefore, the government and defense segment will increase during the forecast period. The Government and defense segment is also expected to show revenue for the market due to the need to secure highly confidential government documents and plans. In addition, the defense system of each country has its tactics and emergency or war plans, which, when leaked, can cause fatal harm to a nation's sovereignty leading to the requirement for a patch system. 

Patch Management Market – By Application:

  • P.C. Terminal
  • Mobile terminal

Based on the application, the P.C. terminal segment is acquiring the highest market share due to the demand for patch utility program installation for computer systems.

However, the mobile terminal segment is growing due to the ease of use and accessibility of mobile phones and the increasing usage of convenient technology on small gadgets like smartphones. 

Patch Management Market - By Deployment:

  • On-Premises
  • Cloud

Based on the deployment model, the Cloud-based segment is undoubtedly leading with the highest share of the market owing to the rise in the acceptance of this technology in almost every application. As a result, cloud-based technology is ruling with the most significant shares of the market.

However, the on-premises segment is also expected to show fast growth during the forecast period due to the additional advantages of on-premises patch management, like the patch to the desktops of roaming users and add-ons like failover servers, etc. 

Patch Management Market - By End User:

  • Healthcare
  • Government
  • Education
  • Finance
  • Legal
