Ransomware protection market to reach $82.92 Bn by 2031

According to Allied Market Research, the global ransomware protection market generated $17.32 billion in 2021, and is estimated to reach $82.92 billion by 2031, witnessing a CAGR of 17.1% from 2022 to 2031.

Drivers, Restraints, and Opportunities
Increase in penetration of ransomware-as-a-service (RaaS), rise in digitization of businesses, and the emergence of cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin drive the growth of the global ransomware protection market. However, lack of awareness about cyberattacks and budgetary constraints restrain the market growth. On the other hand, rise in demand for multi-layer security protection in organizations and surge in adoption of cloud-based services present new opportunities in the coming years.

Covid-19 scenario

  • The adoption of ransomware protection measures increased considerably during the Covid-19 pandemic, owing to the implementation of remote working culture and the shift of workload on the cloud.
  • Rise in cyber threats including ransomware attacks in industries such as healthcare, BFSI, and government led to surged demand for ransomware protection solutions. With implementation of services and systems to carry out contactless operations with safety and security, organizations deployed ransomware protection services and solutions.
  • Many industries shifted toward digitalization during the pandemic, and it led to rise in demand for endpoint security solutions for gaining efficiency and real-time reporting features. This increased the adoption of ransomware protection.
  • Moreover, the pandemic presented many challenges for organizations including executing key processes, reporting data accurately over multiple locations, operating complex systems, and communicating with teammates effectively. This led to rise in investment in ransomware protection.

The solution segment to maintain its leadership status during the forecast period
Based on component, the solution segment contributed to the highest market share in 2021, contributing to more than three-fifths of the global ransomware protection market, and is expected to maintain its leadership status during the forecast period. This is due to benefits such as improvement in the detection and response to cyber incidents along with saving time, money, and resources. However, the services segment is projected to witness the largest CAGR of 18.4% from 2022 to 2031, owing to adoption of services with rise in competition in businesses, surge in user needs, cyber threats, and project risks.

The on-premise segment to maintain its lead position during the forecast period
Based on deployment mode, the on-premise segment held the highest market share in 2021, accounting for nearly three-fifths of the global ransomware protection industry, and is expected to maintain its lead position during the forecast period. This is due to numerous advantages such as high level of data security and safety along with higher data security and lesser data breach in comparison to cloud-based deployment models. However, the cloud segment is projected to manifest the fastest CAGR of 19.6% from 2022 to 2031. This is attributed to adoption of cloud for its benefits such as low cost, easy maintenance, flexibility, and scalability.

The IT and telecom segment to maintain its lead status by 2031
