Network Encryption Market Analysis

The Network Encryption Market was valued at USD 4.18 billion in the current year and is expected to register a CAGR of 8.74%, reaching USD 6.94 billion in five years. The growth of network encryption is primarily attributed to the increasing concern for data security and privacy in organizations.

  • The growth of the internet, cloud computing, and the increasing number of cyberattacks have led to the need for more secure data communication and storage. Additionally, increasing government regulations, such as the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS), require organizations to implement secure data transmission methods, further driving the growth of network encryption.
  • Furthermore, the growth in adopting Internet of Things (IoT)-based solutions by the various end-user industries in their operations has increased the need for encryption to secure data transmitted over IoT networks, supporting market growth.
  • The network encryption industry has grown because new encryption algorithms and better encryption software have been made. For example, using encryption algorithms that quantum computers can't break is becoming more important because quantum computers could break traditional encryption methods.
  • Putting encryption solutions into place can be hard and expensive, especially for businesses with few IT resources. For some organizations, the cost of buying and setting up encryption solutions and training staff to use and maintain them can be a reason not to use them. Also, some encryption algorithms may have technical problems that make them unsuitable for s networks. Such factors are expected to challenge the market's growth during the forecast period.
  • The most important factors affecting the market's growth are the growing number of network security breaches, the increasing use of cloud technologies by many organizations, and the growing need to meet ever-changing regulatory standards for better data protection.
  • The COVID-19 pandemic significantly affected the network encryption market. As the trend toward working from home grew, there was more demand for secure remote work solutions. With more people working from home, there was a need for secure and reliable virtual private networks (VPNs) and remote desktop solutions to protect sensitive corporate data. This led to a surge in demand for network encryption products and services, boosting growth in the industry. Additionally, businesses increased their investment in cybersecurity to address the rise in cyber-attacks and security breaches related to the pandemic.

Network Encryption Market Trends

Telecom and IT Sector is Expected to Hold a Significant Share of the Market

  • Some of the main things pushing the IT and telecom industries worldwide to use network encryption are the growing use of the cloud, increasing investment in optical communication, growing network data breaches, and strict government regulations.
  • Furthermore, the growing adoption of a private network, trends in network automation, and the rollout of 5G networks are expected to increase network traffic, requiring more advanced security measures significantly. Network encryption will keep sensitive data safe on these networks, opening up new business opportunities.
  • Emerging ICT technologies such as smart factories, intelligent transportation systems, the 5th generation of cellular networks and beyond, the Internet of Things, distributed ledger technologies, and quantum-safe communication need technical and organizational measures to address various threats and risks.
  • The deployment of 5G technology will probably lead to increased Internet of Things (IoT) devices connected to networks, opening up new chances for hackers to conduct more extensive and sophisticated assaults. According to Ericsson, data consumption is projected to increase from 35 exabytes in 2019 to 73 exabytes in the current year. All these factors are expanding the scope of network automation among telecom vendors, fueling the demand in the studied market.
  • Furthermore, the innovation expansion launch and adoption of security services across the globe have further boosted the demand for network encryption techniques. For example, in October 2022, the Minister for Communications, Electronics & Information Technology and Railways, Government of India, launched InfiBharat, an indigenous encryption technique developed by Infinity Labs Ltd.
  • Threats against telecommunications result from a combination of typical IP-based threats in an industry with legacy technology. As 5G technology advances, the threat surface will only expand, giving attackers more opportunities. This leaves cybersecurity teams at telecom companies looking for ways to leverage new technology and automation to streamline workflows to stay ahead of attackers in the face of new threats and an increasing number of alerts to triage.
  • According to Entrust 2022 Global Encryption Trends Study, they polled 6,264 people from various industry sectors across 17 nations and regions. Organizations are using encryption to protect customers' personal information (53% of respondents), to protect data against specific, identified threats (50% of respondents), and to protect enterprise intellectual property (48% of respondents). 62% of organizations have an encryption strategy- the sharpest increase in adoption in nearly two decades.

North America is Expected to Hold Significant Market Share

  • North America is a well-equipped region in terms of technology. It has a significant market share because of developed economies like the United States and Canada, and it has the right platforms for businesses of all sizes to follow government rules and regulations.
  • The government of North America has put in place rules that require sensitive data to be protected while in transit. This has driven the need for network encryption solutions to meet these regulatory requirements. In July 2022, the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) prepared new encryption standards designed to withstand attacks by quantum computers.
  • As the tech industry in the region continues to grow, there is more demand for network encryption solutions. This is because cloud computing is becoming more popular, and organizations want to protect sensitive data while it is being sent to and from the cloud. The companies also spend money on research and development to develop more advanced ways to encrypt networks. This investment is contributing to the growth of the industry.
  • While the recently amended EARN IT Act would leave strong encryption on unstable ground if passed into law, The Lawful Access to Encrypted Data Act (LAEDA) is a direct assault on the tool millions of people rely on for personal and national security each day.
  • Further, with the increase in network breaches in the region, the demand for encryption increased. United States government data shows that the number of healthcare breaches in the first five months of 2022 has nearly doubled from last year. For instance, according to news reports, in August 2022, Indiana led the nation in medical data breaches, with more than 80 million records affected, which accounted for nearly 25% of all breached records during the 13 years until June 2022.
