Analysis of the Asia-Pacific Secure Content Management (SCM) Market, Forecast to 2021
The overall secure content management (SCM) market generated $843.4 million in revenue, registering a steady growth of 7.3% on a year-on-year (YoY) basis, which was greatly driven by the Web security segment. The email segment grew flatly at 1.7% YoY growth, as conventional email filtering was in a saturated stage due to the lack of innovations, commoditization, and centralization trends. With customers looking at an integrated platform that can handle multiple issues such as antispam, antivirus, anti-distributed denial of service (DDoS), firewall, regulatory compliance and encryption services, email security is increasingly seen as a commodity, rather than a dedicated solution, particularly in large enterprises.
In addition to the market growth analysis, the study highlights the key driving forces for the SCM market. Some key drivers include the continual surge of new advanced threats and attacks through email and Web vectors and better awareness of the threat landscape. The surge of IoT devices and the increasing adoption of mobility in the workforce require organizations to tighten their control of online content to enhance productivity and prevent threats. Strict compliance requirements drive investments in security to prevent litigation and legal liabilities and in turn drive adoption of cybersecurity.
Market trends are analyzed for the study period of 2015 to 2021, with the base year as 2016. SCM solutions are the key focus area in this study. The vertical segmentation in this study includes the government, banking, financial services and insurance (BFSI), service providers, manufacturing, education, and other sectors.
