As the requirement for the protection of critical infrastructure, physical & cyber systems are rising due to natural disasters, terrorist attacks and cyber hackers are growing, which has debilitating impacts on economic security and public health. Thus, the demand for critical infrastructure protection across various end-user industries is rising globally.

It includes healthcare, financial institutions, defense, energy & power, commercial sector, chemical manufacturing, oil & gas, transport, and others. Moreover, strict government regulations towards public protection play a vital role in boosting CIP industry demand. Additionally, rising government and private investments in the security sector are enhancing industry expansion. Along with these rising R&D activities toward the safety & security sector is pushing the critical infrastructure protection industry growth across the world in projected years.

The pandemic has drastically affected the critical and cybersecurity infrastructure protection which is delivered to users and organizations for accelerating cloud adoption and fast-tracking remote workforce. With various end-user industries adopting work from home policy, there has been an increase in critical infrastructure protection industry demand, which includes cloud-based systems. Additionally, the threat of cybercrime has also increased; thereby, companies and venture capitalists are investing more in insecurity.

Moreover, during a pandemic, the risk of external terrorist attacks has also increased due to retraction in the movement of cybersecurity forces which pushes the requirement of security toward critical physical infrastructures protection and human-less monitoring, which will enhance the adoption of critical infrastructure protection solutions. However, gradual openings of lockdown and post lockdown due to a social gathering of the public will foster the demand for critical infrastructure protection markets across the world.

Industry Dynamics

Growth Drivers
The rising penetration of preventive & curative drugs, rising purchase of fast-track approval of diagnostics, and demand for critical care devices have presented beneficial industry growth. Moreover, the growing stringent government regulations towards the adoptio0n of CIP solutions have enhanced the critical infrastructure protection industry expansion.

Additionally, rising work from home and digitalization provide the impetus for industry growth. Further, the rapid growth and adoption of cloud technology and IoT devices by various end-user industries foster the demand across the world. For instance: According to Cybersecurity Ventures, in 2021, various countries such as Japan and the UK are struggling to find trained cybersecurity experts.

As the number of un-filled jobs offering work from home is estimated to reach 3.5 million. Additionally, according to the report of the Australian Strategic Policy Institute (ASPI) in 2019, it is found that the Australian critical infrastructure providers have deficient IoT security skills and are not skilled to respond to critical infrastructure incidents.

Therefore, with the abovementioned rising factors, the critical infrastructure protection market is expected to grow in the forthcoming years. Along with this, according to National Centres for Environmental Information in 2021, the increasing number of climatic disaster events is a major challenge for the nation’s critical infrastructure protection system.
