The Global Encryption Software Market is estimated to be USD 11.6 Bn in 2021 and is expected to reach USD 25.46 Bn by 2027, growing at a CAGR of 14%.

Key factors such as the rising number of data breaches with the growing cyber-attacks have led to a high susceptibility for organizational data losses compelling the businesses to commit to data encryption software for maintaining adequate data security. This is likely to drive the market for encryption software. Other factors such as advancements in mobile technologies and the regulatory mandates laid by the Government are promoting the growth of the market. Moreover, due to the rising digitalization, internet use has grown, leading to high-security risks to the enterprise’s IP assets. The protection of the company assets has spurred the demand for these solutions, further supporting the growth of the market.

However, factors such as the easy availability of pirated & open-source software, rigid regulations on the import and sales of these solutions, and the high costs of the encryption solutions are likely to restrain the growth of the market.

Segments Covered

By Component, the Services segment is estimated to hold the highest market share. Along with a rising need for encryption software, there is a proportionate rise in the demand for encryption software services to help tackle special requirements. These services can enhance the security portfolio of an enterprise by preventing the entry of malicious attackers into the system with regular upgrades. The managed services are likely to grow at a faster rate as these services can aid in infrastructure management, maintenance, and deployment of encryption software solutions.

By Application, the Cloud Encryption segment is estimated to hold the highest market share as the organizations are continually seeking to ensure data security amidst the growing data churns and rising data breaches. Moreover, the organizations are looking to achieve efficiencies in business processes. Therefore, they are adopting innovative technologies and cloud-based solutions ranging from private to hybrid for storing these high volumes of data. The cloud encryption solutions provide the needed flexibility, scalability and are thus preferred by businesses. These factors are likely to boost the market segment growth for cloud encryption solutions.

By Deployment, the Cloud-based encryption deployment is estimated to hold the highest market share. The rising adoption of cloud infrastructure and cloud storage solutions due to the benefits of easy data maintenance, scalability, and faster accessibility has aggravated the rise in the adoption of cloud-based encryption software. Also, the increasing investments by the vendors in cloud-based encryption software are likely to advance the segment's growth further.

By Organization Size, Large Enterprises are estimated to hold the highest market share. These enterprises generate a large amount of data. This has increased the demand for encryption software among enterprises to ensure adequate data privacy. Moreover, data storage is one of the essential requisites for organizations in the retail, BFSI, and healthcare sector. Therefore, the enterprises in these sectors are likely to invest in encryption software, which is likely to further increase market demand.

By Industry Vertical, the BFSI segment is estimated to hold the highest market share. The BFSI segment holds large amounts of sensitive information about individuals and businesses. They depend highly on online transactions for transferring data, thereby making them more vulnerable to cyber-attacks. Also, since the banks are now following the cloud-based deployment infrastructures, they require encryption software to ensure high data integrity. These factors are likely to enhance the growth of encryption software in the BFSI segment.

By Geography, North America is likely to lead the market in the forecast period. The factors attributed to the region's growth are the developments taking place in the encryption software market in the wake of rising regulatory mandates and the fast adoption rate of innovative technologies. Besides, the growing investments and collaborations in the private and public sectors have contributed to the growth of the encryption software market.

The Global Encryption Software Market is segmented further based On Component, Application, Deployment, Organization Size, Industry Vertical, and Geography.
