The Evolution of 5G security Market opportunities, growth, future analysis, challenges


Market Overview
5G mobile networking technology is one of the key innovations in telecommunications. With its faster data rates than 4G LTE speeds and low latency increased bandwidth, 5G technology has exponentially improved the connectivity and connected technology. However, alongside came the cybersecurity concerns and increased vulnerability to online crimes.

Besides, the proliferation of private 5G networks created significant market demand. Organizations are increasingly seeking to significantly improve operations through high capacity, low latency, and fast communications networks, thereby increasing the focus on the security of the data transmitted. Resultantly, Private 5G networks are expected to gain huge momentum in industrial uses.

5G security market worldwide are estimated to garner significant traction. In this regard, Market Research Future (MRFR), a leading research firm, states that the global 5G security market is poised to reach USD 5,201.4 billion by 2026, growing at a massive 44.25% CAGR during the review period (2020–2026). With 5G networking systems incorporated into every business system and growing digitization, the need for 5G security is growing too.

COVID-19 Impact

5G security industry is one of those many industries which remained unaffected by the COVID-19 complications. The onset of the pandemic positively impacted the already-competitive telecom markets and so 5G technology and security markets. Moreover, the massive leap people took to make a living online during the lockdown period increased the market demand for high-speed networks and 5G securities.

On the other hand, the economical setback that occurred due to the coronavirus outbreak worldwide contributed to the market upend, causing many lost jobs and downward discretionary income, thereby fueling cyber-crimes and data theft. With vast transformations in the IT telecom industry and the digital transformation of the global economy itself, cybersecurity risks are rising across industry verticals.

The coronavirus pandemic has also fostered digitization and automation across the manufacturing sectors, which increased 5G deployments and the need for 5G security solutions. The automation has further increased the uptake of 5G networks and the need for cloud-based 5G-enabled security apps and services.

The 5G security market is witnessing a constant uptick over the past few months, and solution providers are seen increasing investments to foster RD activities to develop 5Gsecurity solutions.

Market Segmentation 

The 5G security market is segmented into components, network component security, architecture, end-user, deployment type, vertical, and region. The component segment is sub-segmented into solutions and services.
The sub-segment solution is further bifurcated into data loss prevention, next-generation firewall, antivirus/antimalware, security gateway, DDoS protection, sandboxing, and others (network access control [NAC] and network vulnerability assessment and penetration testing [VAPT]). Similarly, the sub-segment services are divided into consulting, implementation, support maintenance, and others.

The network component security segment is sub-segmented into RAN security and core security. The architecture segment is sub-segmented into 5G NR non-standalone and 5G NR standalone. The end-user segment is sub-segmented into telecom operators and enterprises. The deployment type segment is sub-segmented into cloud and on-premises.

The vertical segment is sub-segmented into manufacturing, healthcare, energy utilities, retail, automotive transportation, public safety, media entertainment, and others (BFSI, agriculture, and education). The region segment is sub-segmented into the Americas, Europe, APAC, and the Rest-of-the-World.
