Publication Month: Apr 2017 | Report Code: TIPTE100000288 | No. of Pages: 229 | Category: Technology, Media and Telecommunications | Status: Published

The global IoT security market generated US$ 7.3 billion in 2016 and is likely to hit US$ 30.9 billion by 2025, expanding at a CAGR of 17.6% during 2017–2025.

The increasing focus on security and privacy concerns, rising trend of smart cities, strict government regulations encouraging the deployment of IoT security, and the collaboration between companies to develop products and services with a sustainable ecosystem are the potential elements proliferating the global IoT security market growth. Contrary to this, the complicated security infrastructure, lack of awareness among the majority, and deficiency of skilled labor hampers the market expansion.

Internet of things comprises devices and systems allowing users across all segments to connect, access, and exchange data. IoT is moving from a centralized structure to a complex network with over millions of smart devices integration. This shift brings to the surface all new business and service opportunities. With the sprawling network of IoT worldwide, security is becoming a critical element that cannot be neglected in the development of systems. IoT security deals with the safety of data and devices. The security system includes different semiconductor technologies, power management devices, sensors, and microprocessors. The growing trends of smart homes, smart cities, industry 4.0, and connected devices are making users more conscious about data security. 

Regionally, North America held the largest share of the global IoT security market in 2016. However, by 2025 Asia Pacific is expected to amass the largest market share with optimal revenue.

Future Trends

Emergence of Blockchain in IoT Security

Blockchain technology, being a decentralized database, serves as an online ledger keeping a record of transactions that can’t be changed. It can track billions of connected devices, enable transactions, co-ordinate between devices, and facilitate significant savings to IoT industry manufacturers. This decentralized approach is anticipated to eliminate nodes of failure, creating a more resilient ecosystem for devices to run. The cryptographic algorithm used by blockchain is capable of keeping user data more confidential. As the technology is fledgling and changing vigorously, its widespread commercialization is foreseen in few years. Blockchain would emerge as an object of intense interest in IoT applications, thus setting a promising trend in the global IoT security market.


Increasing Focus on Security and Privacy Concerns

The trusted IoT tech companies and solution providers equally focus on protecting privacy, improving security, and building trust.These three constitute the major drivers of IoT security market. A robust IoT solution approach emphasizes protecting the infrastructure and devices, developing a high level of data privacy, and building trust among regulators and customers. Along with the virtual management of systems, IoT services are anticipated to be concerned over security as well. With the rising IoT devices, the risk of infiltration by unauthorized sources also tends to increase, leaving a critical mark on users and systems. User’s identity, payment details, and other digital data of utmost importance are at stake with the connection of essential everyday objects with the internet. Thus, the growing demand for data security bolsters the global IoT security market.

Rising Trend of Smart Cities

Internet of Things (IoT) serves as the base for smart city conceptualization and execution. The devices, systems, and users are interconnected in a smart city. Even the government would be connected with the systems, thereby increasing the risk of critical data loss. When everything is connected and accessed via the internet, the chances of data breaches resulting in system malfunctioning increases. This can even compromise the confidential and sensitive government data. Thus, with the development of smart cities in future, data security must remain the priority of implementation. Besides, the military and armed forces’ data is susceptible to international hacking activities, which in turn demands the high-end protection.


Complicated Security Infrastructure

Sustaining security over IoT has been a complex proposition. IoT is not only confined to smartphones, sensors, cameras, or other devices but constitutes a lot more complexity than it looks like.Even the simplest IoT system comprises a wired or wireless network, hardware components such as routers, switches, control units, peripheral devices, and suitable software. Deployment of IoT systems becomes complicated with the bigger networks. One more tangent of security, if added to the IoT systems beyond predetermined structure, makes it far more complicated to understand. Analyzing the systems is time-consuming, as multiple security solutions exist for each component of the IoT framework. Most developers are focusing on the design and utility of IoT devices rather than the security aspects, which might adversely impact the global IoT security market growth.

Market Segmentation

By Type

Demand for Security Triggered the Segmental Growth

The global IoT security market, by type, is split into network, endpoint, cloud, application, and other securities. The network security segment led the IoT security market in 2016 and is expected to continue dominating over the forecast timeframe. Networks in IoT systems enable discreet devices to communicate. Implementation of network security help organizations safeguard their communication channels from data misuse and unauthorized access. The adoption of network security solutions is highly influenced by the rising demand for secure cloud technology. Also, the intense use of virtualization made the systems susceptible to malware and defective processes, thereby mandating the integration of network security solutions that includes a firewall to perform exhaustive scanning of packets.

The application security segment is likely to stand as the second-largest market occupant by 2025. The IoT security market for application security, despite facing certain drawbacks, is anticipated to overcome the challenges with the help of technological innovation and improved security techniques. New communication protocols may bring security issues and vulnerabilities, such as malformed packet attacks and flood attacks to the application layer.

By Solution

Reviewing the Identities and Access to the Systems Strengthened the Segment’s Dominance

Based on solution, the global IoT security market is segmented into threat analysis, identity access management, data loss protection, encryption, dispatch and incident response, distributed denial of service protection, and others. The identity access management segment dominated the market in 2016 and is speculated to retain its lead by 2025 with a considerable CAGR. The identity access management system for business progressions enables the supervision of electronic identities. The system can initiate, seize, log, and govern user identities and their associated access permissions in a digital manner. The identity access management solution for IoT aims at enhancing privacy and security in resource-bounded environments for general use. Smart cards and intelligent chip-based security are widely used in the IoT industry.

Threat analysis segment, the second-largest market occupant, exhibits a significant CAGR over the forecast period. The external and internal information vulnerabilities relevant to a particular organization are reviewed against real-world cyber-attacks. The anticipated result of threat assessment is to provide enhanced protection for data integrity and confidentiality. The first step in creating a security framework is recognizing threats such as phishing, app hacking, DOS attacks, and others. Threat analysis needs to be an ongoing activity as a part of a system development process.
