The global threat intelligence market size was estimated at USD 3.02 billion in 2016. Use of intelligence is increasingly gaining strategic imperative amongst organizations to understand the threats based on available data points, which may propel the industry growth over the forecast period.
Emerging cybercrime landscape across both developed and emerging economies has highlighted a concern for the organizations. Governments, as well as many large organizations, are working towards bridging the gap between the spending in cyber security systems and seeking out an optimum result with the gathered threat artifacts to mitigate or reduce arising threats. The applicability and usefulness of intelligence have led organizations to integrate contextual information and data points to determine relevant threats to the business and thus providing actionable strategy towards the same.
Cybercriminals across the global are abusing network security and gaining privileged access which is owed to rise in the sophistication of cyber-attacks. Moreover, the attackers are working as a legitimate organization which is anticipated to emerge on a larger scale and increases fear of attack on sectors such as BFSI, government, healthcare and others. The factors as mentioned earlier have led growing security awareness and is thus resulting in higher spending on threat intelligence solution with an aim to combat or mitigate risk to the organization.
The UK and U.S. governments’ supportive approach towards sharing threat feeds of rising cybercrime enables state as well as other private organization to accumulate data and come up with the preventive measure in advance. The global influential geopolitical countries such as China, India, Russia and U.S. have formed APT units to secure sensitive data on businesses and governments which is an extension of intelligence collection policies`.
Identity and access management (IAM) solution was valued at USD 446.7 million in 2016 and is anticipated to grow at a healthy CAGR of 16.5% over the forecast period. The segment growth is owed to the effective security standards for authentication and authorization of users based on the access levels. Moreover, as organizations shift their business to cloud services, IAM forms a vital part to manage and access application and data by employees, without compromising on security protocols.
The solution enables security teams to identify user compromised as well as related data during a breach which is expected to bolster its application in organizations, thereby supporting the growth of threat intelligence market.
Incident Forensics is anticipated to grow and expand at relatively higher CAGR of 19.3% as compared to other solutions during the forecast period.

The application of incident forensics reduces network & security breach in the business environment on the real-time and thus forms the initial line of defense in security operation thereby strengthening the global threat intelligence market.
The managed services segment accounts for significant market share and is expected to continue its dominance over the forecast period. The segment is expected to grow and expand at a significant CAGR of 19.2% over the forecast period. The segment growth is attributed to form solid intelligence foundation, redemption visibility, monitoring, and control an organizations security.
Threat intelligence managed services provide security management based on gathered information from users’ business environment and threat landscape dynamics. It feeds the data points into the systems which are automated with analysis and algorithm to find significant events to further notify the customer. In addition, the service provider tunes the security posture of the organization for enhanced protection which is expected to boost the threat intelligence managed services market.
Cloud-based deployment is anticipated to grow at a high CAGR of 18.0% over the forecast period. Enterprises are migrating from on-premise to cloud-based solutions as they are cost-effective. Moreover, organizations are finding it difficult to manage the on-premise solutions owing to issues such as lack of expertise and resource as well as budget constraints. The adoption of public cloud is accelerating at a high pace leading to the demand for cloud-based security solutions.
The cloud-based security adoption is expected to increase in the near future owing to the growing adoption of cloud storage systems. Economies including Russia and Australia have passed strict regulations on the storage of data domestically on cloud servers rather than using foreign cloud servers. For instance, Australia passed 13 new Australian Privacy Principles (APPs), which the private and public sectors comply to for ensuring cloud security.
The industry is expected to witness growth in projects including the use of cloud as government organizations are opting for cloud platform for data sharing. The use of cloud platforms has led to huge savings, and several commercial and government organizations are migrating to cloud storage, resulting in the strong growth for cloud security solutions.
BFSI is estimated to account 21.81% market share in the year 2016. The BFSI sector is expected to witness a strong growth in the threat intelligence market. Rising threat intelligence spending within the sector in its response to the growing cyber-crime and internal breaches. Moreover, the frequency of attacks in the banking sector is increasing with a need to develop a strong security posture.
Advancements in banking industry such as e-banking, mobile banking and ATM are expected to increase the security vulnerabilities. Furthermore, increased compliance and regulations are expected to fuel the demand over the forecast period.
Threat Intelligence in the healthcare sector is expected to witness a healthy growth rate over the forecast period. The health insurers are observed to be the prime target of the cyberattacks, such as spear phishing and Advanced Persistent Threats (APT). The growing breaches in this sector provide a wider opportunity for cybersecurity professionals to give a holistic solution of threat intelligence in the institutions.
Asia Pacific is expected to be the fastest-growing region over the forecast period. Large enterprise and several SMEs and within the China, Japan and India have been investing in the security systems, which is owed to growing major issues of data theft and increased cyber-attacks. The increasing number of cyber-crime activities at software application, growing demand for the mobile & web application, and rising government & legislation by-laws are anticipated to further drive the growth of threat intelligence market in the Asia-Pacific.
Threat intelligence solution demand in Europe is estimated to account USD 737.8 million in the 2016. European government and legislation in the region have ordered service providers to implement new information security standards or to face penalties. Moreover, Federal Government is making a substantial contribution to secure cyberspace to maintain and promote social and economic prosperity.
The Middle East and Africa is anticipated to witness growth at 19.8% CAGR from 2017 to 2025. The growth is accredited to the government efforts which is bolstering the national cybersecurity capabilities. Moreover, rapid adoption of digital technology has made the region a target for a broad range of cyber threats which has increased demand for threat intelligence solution.
