Burgeoning Investments in Industry 4.0 to Strengthen the Global ICS Security Market

The advent of Industry 4.0 has provided various opportunities for the providers of ICS security. Industry 4.0 integrates automation with advanced manufacturing thereby providing a lucrative target for the cyber criminals. For Instance- In 2016, BlackEnergy and another APT campaign, Sandworm, were the perpetrators behind outages at two power generation facilities in Ukraine. BlackEnergy and KillDisk were the cyber-attacks against mining company and a large railway operator in Ukraine.

According to MarkNtel Advisors’ research report Global Industrial Control Systems Security Market Analysis, 2020”, the industrial control systems security market is projected to grow at a CAGR of around 6% during 2020-25. Industries such as mining, gas pipeline infrastructure, oil & gas platforms, and power utility infrastructure are majorly prone to cyber-attacks, thus the market of ICS security is expected to grow amongst various industries. Moreover, the increasing support by the governments to reduce cyber-attacks is anticipated to strongly contribute to the growth of Global ICS security market. The U.S regulatory policy, and government initiatives such as the National Cybersecurity and Communications Integration Centre (NCCIC) under the U.S. Department of Homeland Security is continuously trying to decrease risk of cyberattacks.

As per MarkNtel Advisors’ study, the managed security services grabbed a considerable market share in the Global ICS security market in 2019.
