Global AI in Cyber Security Market to Reach $30.9 Billion by 2025

A report from Zion Market Research finds that the global AI in Cyber Security market will grow from $7.1 billion in 2018 to $30.9 billion in 2025 with a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 23.4 percent in the forecast period 2019-2025. An excerpt from the report analysis reads:

The globally increasing IoT adoption and the number of connected devices have simultaneously increased the risk of cyberattacks. The rising number of cybercrimes is propelling the artificial intelligence (AI) in cyber security market. Some common cyber frauds faced by large enterprises are identity and payment card thefts, these cybercrimes when not resolved on time can lead to huge monetary losses. Cybersecurity providers are significantly using AI solutions for tackling such cyberattacks by early threat detection, response time reduction, and segregation as per priority. AI solutions not only provide wider security as compared to human potential but also simplify complete recognition and acknowledgment procedures related to cyber frauds. Thereby, the escalating cybersecurity risk incidences are prominently driving the artificial intelligence (AI) in cyber security market globally. However, the lack of technical expertise for AI application implementation may hinder the artificial intelligence (AI) in cyber security market growth to some extent. Furthermore, the emerging demand for cloud-based security solutions among various small- to medium-sized enterprises is anticipated to create lucrative market opportunities.
