Purchase Report

The botnet detection market was valued at USD 181.5 million and is expected to reach USD 1474.3 million by 2023, with a CAGR of 42.8%, during the 2018 - 2023. The report profiles the providers of botnet detection.

A botnet is a gathering of connected devices which may include mobiles, PCs, server, and devices in the Internet of Things (IoT) by a common or single type of malware, wherein often the users are unaware of the affected computer. The number of botnet attacks is rapidly increasing, due to which, the demand for botnet prevention is expected to increase. For instance, in July 2018, a group of hackers claimed to have compromised about 18,000 Huawei routers, which was further confirmed by security firms, Qihoo, 360 Netlab, and Rapid7. As a result, this is expected to boost the utilization of robust solution by Huawei and other companies, thereby augmented the growth of the market studied over the next six years. Furthermore, companies are setting up facilities, especially, to reduce the impact of various botnet attacks, such as DDoS. For instance, in July 2018, Alibaba announced to set up a center associated with DDoS attack mitigation in Malaysia by August 2018. This is expected to boost the usage of botnet prevention tools, thereby having a positive impact on market growth. Notably, botnet attacks are affecting diverse industries, including gaming. For example, in July 2018, For Honor, a game developed by Ubisoft was affected by largely affected by the DDoS attack, which disrupted the latency and for some users, it restricted from connecting to the game. Post the aforementioned activity, the company has announced to closely monitor and deploy robust prevention system. Such measures are expected to fuel the market growth over the forecast period.

Increasing Number of Connected Devices

As internet penetration and the number of internet-enabled devices is increasing, the probability of botnet attacks are rapidly ascending. Furthermore, increasing investments are leading to the rapid deployment of a smart home, which uses connected devices. This is likely to boost the usage of botnet detection, thereby fostering the market growth over the next six years. Notably, the internet penetration across the emerging economies is rapidly increasing. For instance, according to the Internet and Mobile Association of India, internet users were expected to reach up to about 500 million by June 2018. As a result, it is expected to expose the users to various botnet attack; thus increasing the need for detection solution thereby boosting the market growth.

Media and Entertainment Industry is expected to Register the Highest Growth

The online media and entertainment industry is expanding at a high pace, due to the increasing acceptability, and is primarily driven by digital media. For instance, Netflix, an online media streaming platform, witnessed a significant growth, of approximately 26% in Q1 2018, when compared to Q1 2017. Furthermore, the company is partnering with diverse TV makers to offer its application to smart TVs, which is expected to further increase the number of users. As a result, the incident for botnet attacks is projected to increase, which is likely to foster market growth over the next six years.

Asia-Pacific is expected to Witness the Highest Growth

In Asia-Pacific, nations majorly targeted by cybercriminals are China, Korea, Japan, India, and Taiwan, due to the presence of many internet users. According to Kaspersky Lab, in late 2017, DDoS attackers attacked the Chinese telecom industry with a 277-hour attack. This was one of the largest attacks, globally, owing to which, companies have redefined their botnet detection and prevention tactics. This is expected to a tremendous positive impact on the market growth in the region, over the forecast period.
