Market Overview

The global data loss prevention market is registering a CAGR of 22.29% during the forecast period. Enterprises worldwide are increasingly adopting better security solutions as part of their digital transformation process, thereby augmenting the market's growth.

  • The rapidly increasing instances of data breaches and other factors, such as DLP-as-a-service, DLP functionalities extending into the cloud, and advanced threat protection, have significantly increased the focus on data loss protection solutions worldwide. As the demand for digital assets increased, there has been a massive growth in the amount of structured and unstructured data, driving the need for data protection services with a strategic focus on data-centric organizations. Multiple large enterprises in the fortune global 500 have invested in the DLP market for over a decade. Currently, the market studied has emerged as a critical security strategy within reach of mid-sized enterprises.
  • Data Loss Prevention (DLP) tools are necessary for data protection strategies. DLP solutions can be tailored to various needs and support compliance efforts with the new data protection regulations, such as GDPR or the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA). They are helping organizations find, monitor, and control sensitive data, as it travels in and out of the company network.
  • The increasing demand for bringing your device (BYOD) has increased the concern among key enterprises regarding data security. According to the BYOD Security Report 2021 by Forcepoint, in all, 82% of businesses actively encourage employees to bring their own devices to work. BYOD is most associated with employees bringing unmanaged devices to work (70%), but it also applies to other groups such as contractors (26%), partners (21%), customers (18%), and suppliers (14%). In addition, Information security issues (30%), employee privacy concerns (15%), and support cost concerns (9%) are the biggest impediments to BYOD adoption. Data leakage or loss is at the top of the list of security concerns (62%). Users installing hazardous apps or content (54%), lost or stolen devices (53%), and illegal access to the company data and systems are all significant worries (51%), according to BYOD Security Report 2021.
  • Data can still be viewed in a printable format even when access permission is restricted to confidential data. As these channels cannot be closed and are the foundation of the business in terms of data interchange, channels like file sharing and online services related to data "in transit" have been one of the main challenges. Traffic must be heavily filtered to guarantee optimal security in these channels. The DLP system that would be implemented should constantly work to balance security and interconnectivity in these channels.
  • With the emergence of the COVID-19 pandemic, the market is anticipated to grow further as the total volume of data being generated worldwide is rising much faster. Moreover, as a result of the COVID-19 lockdowns that have been put in place along with the switch to remote working environments, an unprecedented number of people are now making usage of mobile devices as their primary communications device, thereby creating more endpoints for the organization to secure from the rising cyber threats.

Key Market Trends

Rising Data Breaches and Cyber Attacks Across The World to Drive the Market

  • The increasing instances of data breaches across multiple industries have leaked millions of consumer data records to hackers and the loss of millions of dollars for numerous impacted companies, which have increased the focus on security solutions across emerging economies.
  • As businesses worldwide grow, new threats, such as zero-day malware, trojans, and advanced persistent threats, have exposed critical data to risk. This has encouraged organizations to deploy DLP solutions to safeguard their data within endpoints and networks against potential attacks.​
  • The increasing adoption of BYOD trends in organizations has increased the influx of different laptops, desktops, and smartphones, which has created other endpoints vulnerable to attacks. Security measures on their own are not enough to stop them. The massive growth in the adoption of mobile devices across the world is expected to create significant opportunities during the forecast period. According to the Cisco Annual Internet Report, there will be approximately 29.3 billion networked devices by 2023. Smart manufacturing and the smart industry are expected to augment it with the increased adoption of 5G and beyond.
  • Ransomware threat actors targeted software supply chain businesses worldwide, compromising and extorting their clients. By focusing on software supply chains, ransomware threat actors can expand the scope of their assaults by gaining access to several victims through a single initial penetration. Technological advancement in recent years has increased cyberattacks targeting the telecom industry. Hence, it is becoming increasingly crucial for telecom companies to choose data security services to ensure that all operating systems on their network are secure.
  • Moreover, there has been double-digit growth in the number of endpoints, primarily owing to the rapidly increasing adoption of automation due to Industry 4.0, machine-to-machine communication, and the emergence of smart cities. Consequently, the need to protect the vulnerability of data and devices and deploy tools to recognize attacks and minimize the damage is critically important.​ Therefore, the increasing adoption of automation technology is expected to drive the studied market growth in the forecast period.
Data Loss Prevention Market Share

North America to Account for the Largest Market Share

  • The United States is witnessing an increased number of data breaches. According to the Identity Theft Resource Center (ITRC), the average number of violations in the United States has increased marginally over the past few years. The number of data breaches faced by the United States increased from 1,506 breaches in 2017 to 1,826 violations in 2021, according to the ITRC's Data Breach Report 2021.
  • In addition, the country's increasing number of data breaches in 2021 has impacted around 293.93 million individuals. These increasing data breaches in various industries are expected to be the primary factor driving the demand for data loss prevention solutions during the forecast period.
  • The healthcare industry in the United States also witnesses many data breaches as health-related data is rushing toward electronic records. This has resulted in an increase in electronic health/medical records, which requires data loss prevention solutions.
  • In Canada, government organizations are proposing new privacy laws to give individuals more control and transparency into how companies handle personal information. For instance, recent legislative initiatives, such as the Digital Charter Implementation Act, 2020 (Bill C-11), entitled the Consumer Privacy Protection Act (CPPA), and Quebec's Bill 64. Other jurisdictions are also looking to follow by introducing their new laws. These regulations are targeted to provide data protection.
  • In March 2022, Quebec's Premier and Health Minister announced the reformation of Quebec's health system, including the management of health and social services information. The government has introduced Bill 19, which aims to set up a new management system that modernizes and decentralizes the health network to enable a safer and more seamless flow of health and social services information.
