Security Software Publishing in the US - Industry Market Research Report

Security Software Publishing in the US

The Security Software Publishing industry has experienced steady growth over the five years to 2018. The explosion of data, a rise in internet-enabled solutions and cloud services and an increase in services conducted online are expected to stimulate the industry's expansion. High-profile cyberattacks targeting retailers, financial institutions and healthcare providers are expected to further stimulate demand for industry products, as customers continue to experience the effects of an underinvested or nonexistent security system. Several major trends are changing the security software landscape. The first is the migration to the software as a service business model. Over the five years to 2023, revenue growth is expected to remain strong as traditional and start-up companies continue to focus their efforts on creating software that spot and clean up viruses on portable computing devices.

This industry develops and distributes antivirus, anti-keylogger, spyware removal, encryption and firewall software. Operators in the industry may also provide consulting and technical support related to this software.

This report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecasts, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
