The Global Cyber Security Market 2016-2026


Technology used by cyber offenders, both state and non-state actors, has evolved much faster than governments / agencies have been able to anticipate. Also, since the cyber-crime database on attacks, penetrations, causes, and consequences is underdeveloped, cyber defenses are not adequate to counter systematic cyber-attacks by cyber criminals. Moreover, cyber-attacks are now not only limited to nations but have extended to terrorist groups, organized crime, hackers, industrial spies, and foreign intelligence services. As such, the changing dynamics of cyber threats and increased demand for cyber weapons is expected to stimulate growth over the forecast period.

The market for cyber security is expected to increase from US$11.9 Billion in 2016, to US$18.5 Billion by 2026, representing a CAGR of 4.51%. This is primarily because the major markets, including the US and countries in the Asia-Pacific and Europe, are expected to prioritize spending on cyber security systems, an element of defense spending that was not given much importance until four years ago.

North America accounts for 57% of the market, which is the largest share, while the Asia Pacific region accounts for 20% of the overall market which is the second highest share of investment in the sector. Europe is expected to comprise 12% of the total market followed by the Middle East at 8%. Latin America and Africa together comprise 3% of the global market with the major portion of spending in these regions coming from Brazil and South Africa.
