Internet of Things (IoT) Security Market, By Component (Solution and Services), By Security Type (Network Security, Application Security, Cloud Security, End-point Security, and Wireless Security), By Application (Smart Manufacturing, Smart Energy and Utilities, Connected Logistics, Consumer Wearable, Connected Healthcare, Smart Government and Defense, Connected Vehicles, and Smart Retail), and By Region - Global Industry Insights, Trends, Outlook, and Opportunity Analysis, 2017-2025

Internet of Things (IoT) is an ecosystem of connected physical objects that are accessible through the Internet. Internet of Things (IoT) involves creation of smart communication environment between smart homes, smart transportation, and smart healthcare systems with the help of several devices in a network that enables transmission of data within these devices such as WSN (Wireless Sensor Network), RFID (Radio Frequency Identification), cloud services, NFC (Near Field Communication), gateways, data storage & analytics, and visualization elements. Moreover, embedded software, hardware devices, IT services, and communication services are interconnected with IoT for monitoring, detecting, prevention of unauthorized access, and managing numerous interrelated devices, efficiently.

Internet of Things security is used to protect and secure the network connecting IoT devices to back-end systems on the internet. Key features include traditional endpoint security such as antivirus and antimalware along with firewalls and interruption prevention and detection systems. IoT security authenticate an IoT device by managing multiple users of a single device platform, for example a connected car. Moreover it is ranging from simple static password or pins to more robust authentication mechanisms such as two-factor authentication, digital certificates and biometrics.

Advancement in technologies and increasing use of 2G, 3G, and 4G Long-Term Evolution (LTE) wireless networks have in turn also made these networks increasingly susceptibility to cyber-attacks. These cellular networks enables connectivity and communications to exchange real time information, data, and online transactions among others, which is prominent target for cyber-attacks. For the security and flexibility of these online communication IoT security solution plays a major role. According to Coherent Market Insights’ analysis, in 2016, over 88% of the U.S. population had access to the Internet, which is around 280 million of the U.S. population. Smart home solutions aid in remotely accessing devices at home including security systems. Therefore, it is important to have IoT security solutions in order to enhance security.

Increasing smart city initiatives, globally, is also another factor expected to fuel market growth. For instance, in 2015, Government of India launched "100 Smart Cities Mission". Some of the important elements in smart city initiatives involve digitalization and deploying Wi-Fi hotspots at various locations. Public Wi-Fi network do not provide security and use shared passwords. Hence, this facility is prone to cyber-attacks. Therefore, IoT security helps to enhance the security through a unique technology called ‘User Pre-Shared Key’ (UPSK) for every devices within the network to ensure device security. Such features of IoT security are expected to fuel growth of the global IoT market.
