IoT Security Market Dynamics
The growing ransomware attacks on IoT devices and the rising data risk in IoT networks across the globe are the significant factors that can make the global IoT Security Market mainstream in the coming six years. The hackers are becoming more active and targeting IoT devices and taking advantage of known vulnerabilities, like the default username, static code backdoor, and password. Thereby, the vulnerability of critical systems is increasing, which promotes the government of various countries to adopt IoT-enabled security. Moreover, the increasing demand for IoT security solutions followed by multiplying variants of attacks is an additional factor that positively influences market growth.
Cybercriminals are utilizing multi-layered cyber-attacks to keep an eye on the commercial aspects and intelligence of individuals, enterprises, and countries. This factor has promoted large organizations to integrate their security solutions to reduce the cost and improve the safety of their facility. Hence, the accelerating demand for integrated security solutions will fuel the market demand in the coming years. Furthermore, the growing usage of 3G and 4G long-term growth and wireless networks and technologies surges the cyber-attacks risk. Transaction-related information and real-time information, which is necessary to users, is replaced by these cellular networks, which in turn, is amplifying the need for IoT security. The growing trend of bring your own device (BYOD) is raising concerns related to data security. On the other hand, as per the IoT security market report, the significant factors that are likely to hamper the IoT security market size in the coming years are; a lack of awareness about the exceptional advantages and availability of IoT security solutions. Furthermore, the high cost of installation is an additional factor that will negatively impact market growth.
