According to Stratistics MRC, the Global Application Security Market is accounted for $7.21 billion in 2021 and is expected to reach $23.11 billion by 2028 growing at a CAGR of 18.1% during the forecast period. Application security is the method of securing applications by finding, fixing, and improving the security of apps. Various techniques are utilized to surface such security vulnerabilities at different stages of an application's lifecycle. Prevention, fixing, and detecting vulnerabilities are some of the tasks of application security.

Market Dynamics:


Increasing security breaches

Security breaches keep on being a threat to consumers and enterprises. The foundation of digital infrastructure depends on communication between business-critical applications and data, which are shared across stages, devices, and users. Business applications hold basic organizational information and are the objective of cybercriminals. Common vulnerabilities and exposures database has more vulnerabilities in commonly utilized applications and the applications have no patches available. Even if patches are available then consumers and enterprises do not apply them, making cybercriminals more productive in breaking application codes. Attributable to the rise in this kind of security breach targeting business applications, organizations across the world are deploying application security solutions to safeguard web and mobile applications.


Budget constraints

Unused business-basic applications are harmful as they are not updated regularly. Many small and medium-sized enterprises accept that spending money on this kind of applications will cost the organization. The reason of which unused applications makes long-term security threats as it is not difficult to crack unused applications and get into the IT infrastructure regardless whether the application was business-critical or rarely used web application. Budget constraint and return on investment for small and medium-sized enterprises is restraining the growth of the application security market.


Increasing adoption of technologies in web- and mobile-based security process

Application security covers web and mobile applications that pass through different phases of the security development life cycle; for instance, security design and security coding. Various artificial intelligence specific areas, such as machine learning and expert systems, can be utilized to further develop application security to derive, predict, or apply inferences to forecast security threats, and identify security vulnerabilities and the security coding remediation guidance. Security auditors with the assistance of these innovations can automate attack threat identification and the code review process. Several organizations have adopted artificial intelligence and machine learning for application development programs. 


Unused web and mobile applications

Unused applications are the biggest challenge. It is often seen that customers and enterprises carry applications, which will be rarely utilized or will remain unused for a long time. This type of applications presents greater threats. The unused apps can still start a connection, scan files and photos, and upload sensitive information to their mother ship unknowingly. Hence, it is important to eliminate those applications and use applications security solutions to limit threats. 

The cloud segment is expected to be the largest during the forecast period

The cloud segment is estimated to have a lucrative growth owing to the adoption of cloud computing among small and medium-scale enterprises. Several organizations are steadily moving towards cloud infrastructure, and this trend is likely to grow in the coming years. The high growth rate of this segment is attributed to its ease of adoption, minimal requirement of in-house infrastructure, scalability, and easy installation of security solutions.

The banking, financial services and insurance (BFSI) segment is expected to have the highest CAGR during the forecast period

The banking, financial services and insurance (BFSI) segment is anticipated to witness the fastest CAGR growth during the forecast period as banks and financial institutions store and handle large amounts of sensitive customer financial data, such as payment information, money transaction details, credit card/debit card details, account numbers, and trading transactions.

Region with highest share:

Asia Pacific is projected to hold the largest market share during the forecast period due to increasing adoption of technologies, such as AI and IoT. Additionally, the increasing significance of web security & privacy concerns, developing web & mobile infrastructure, and the growing threat of cyberattacks are likely to boost the market growth in the region. Because of the low budget for cybersecurity organizations in this region make more utilize of open source applications for security testing purposes, which have high potential infringement issues, operational risks, and malpractices.

Region with highest CAGR:

North America is projected to have the highest CAGR over the forecast period owing to the proliferation of mobile devices and rise in cloud based networking along with the presence of major key players. The government authorities in the region are also working to decrease cybercrimes in the region. The government influence also encourages the use of application security solutions.
