Market Overview

The BFSI security market was valued at USD 37.4 billion in 2021 and is expected to reach USD 66.02 billion by 2026, at a CAGR of 11% over the forecast period (2021 - 2026). Banks and other financial institutes are under increasing scrutiny to ensure they have the appropriate security measures in place, especially in the wake of the numerous high-profile data breaches that have taken place over the last few years.

  • The increasing implementation of regulatory standards, coupled with the rise in the adoption of cloud-based security solutions and increasing modes of online payments, is expected to give rise to advanced security solutions.
  • Also, because the adoption of cloud-based technologies has made data more vulnerable to security attacks, hackers have begun using malware, such as Odinaff, Danabot, Camubot, and Backswap, to target banks that rely on the SWIFT network to send money-moving messages. This has led to customers demanding more effective solutions.
  • In countries such as Qatar, where significant investments in infrastructure are being made for the 2022 FIFA World Cup, banks are also investing in advanced security solutions.
  • The lack of awareness regarding the modern BFSI security systems across developing economies and the need for convergence of various security solutions are the major factors restraining the BFSI security market.
  • The pandemic has provided significant growth opportunities for the market in the long run since the digitization boom that further led to the adoption of cloud-based solutions, with the movement of various institutions to online operations has led to significant growth.
