Worldwide Consumer Endpoint Security Forecast, 2018-2022: Consumer PC Installed Base Retraction Depresses Market Growth

This IDC study presents a five-year forecast for the worldwide consumer endpoint security market as of April 2018. This study updates the previous forecast published in Worldwide Endpoint Security Forecast, 2016–2020."The worldwide consumer endpoint security market is facing extremely pedestrian growth," explains Frank Dickson, IDC research vice president, Security Products. "Consumers struggle in not only differentiating the value of one vendor from another but also in appreciating the value of a paid option over a freemium option. When the reduction in the installed base of consumer PCs is also factored, the path of consumer endpoint security vendors that are looking to grow revenue is definitely that of the path least travelled."
