Operational Technology Security Market Platform Segment Insights

Operational Technology Security Component Insights

Based on components, the Operational Technology Security Market segmentation includes Solution and Services. The Solution held the majority share in 2022, contributing around ~67.8% to the market revenue. The solution segment is further divided into OT endpoint security, OT network segmentation, anomaly detection, incident response and reporting, and others. The service segment is further bifurcated into professional and managed services. The managed security services are deployed with multiple delivery methods to help companies assess, design, and manage security strategy and activities, and thus, protect the OT systems. Operational technology (OT) is a set of hardware and software that detects anomalies in the physical devices and is involved in the monitoring and control of processes and events in the enterprise. OT security solution is commonly used in industrial control systems (ICS) such as SCADA systems. OT security solutions are also used to control power stations and public transportation. As this technology advances and converges with networked tech, the need for OT security grows exponentially. OT security solutions include various security technologies ranging from next-generation firewalls (NGFWs) to security information and event management (SIEM) systems to identity access and management. Based on solution, the Operational Technology Security Market is further segmented into OT endpoint security, OT network segmentation, anomaly detection, incident response and reporting, and others.

Operational Technology Security Deployment Insights

The Operational Technology Security Market segmentation, based on deployment, includes On-Premise, Hybrid, and Cloud. On-Premise dominated the market in 2022 and is expected to continue dominating the market during the forecast period 2022-2032. Along with changing Industry 4.0 trends and the convergence of IT and operational technology (OT) environments, ICS infrastructure is becoming more connected to the outside world to enable production analytics and optimization. This requires converging IT and OT monitoring, security, and remote and on-premises access control capabilities. Many organizations are considering network-access-control (NAC) technology to bridge the gap between service providers and users, offering users with superior device visibility and threat response.

Operational Technology Security End-User Insights

The Operational Technology Security Market segmentation, based on end user industry, includes Power & Electrical (Power Transmission Grid Operator (Protection Relays, Communication Infrastructure, Substation Automation, and Others) Power Distribution Grid Operator (Protection Relays, Communication Infrastructure, Substation Automation, and Others)), Manufacturing (Discrete and Process), Transportation, Mining, and Others. Power & Electrical had the largest revenue share of the global market.

Operational Technology Security Regional Insights

By Region, the study provides market insights into North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and the Rest of the World. The North American Operational Technology Security market accounted for ~41.2% market share in 2022 and is expected to exhibit a significant CAGR growth during the study period. This is due to a significant number of key players in North America, making it the primary contributor to the market share. North America dominates the Operational Technology Security market due to an increase in Operational Technology Security applications and research and development activity in this area.

In North America, several multinational companies run their businesses online and on-premises, which increases the risk of cyber-attacks. This, in turn, has created lucrative opportunities for cybersecurity and OT security companies to offer a wide range of services to these companies.

North America is expected to dominate the Operational Technology Security Market throughout the forecast period owing to the presence of advanced connectivity infrastructure and the rising need for network virtualization. Overall, the North America operational technology security market is driven by the continuous demand for such services from multinational companies. For instance, the destruction of one of the major pipelines in the United States as a result of ransomware has clearly illustrated the real-world consequences of a successful hit.

Further, the major countries studied in the market report are the U.S., Canada, Germany, France, the UK, Italy, Spain, China, Japan, India, Australia, South Korea, and Brazil.

Europe is the second-largest market for OT security. The continent is home to some of the largest industrial states in the world, such as Germany, and also to some of the most technologically and startup-friendly countries such as Israel and the UK. Some of the key factors that are responsible for the market growth include the surge in data traffic, the advent of 5G, growing number of cloud-based data centers, employee mobility, and the increasing adoption of IoT technologies are encouraging enterprises and service providers to incorporate operational technology security solutions into their networks. Europe is one of the early adopters of OT security.

The Network and Information Security (NIS) Directive was the first piece of EU-wide cybersecurity law, with the particular goal of achieving a high common standard of cybersecurity throughout the Member States. While it improved Member States' cybersecurity capabilities, its implementation proved problematic, causing in internal market fragmentation at several levels. To address the growing threats posed by digitalization and the surge in cyber-attacks, the Commission has proposed replacing the NIS Directive, thereby strengthening security requirements, addressing supply chain security, streamlining reporting obligations, and introducing more stringent supervisory measures and stricter enforcement requirements, including harmonised sanctions across the EU.

Asia-Pacific is one of the fastest-growing markets for OT security. The growing industrial development in the region, especially in countries such as China and India, is pushing the market forward. Asia-Pacific is home to countries with strong manufacturing and technological capabilities, which has resulted in a demand for OT security. The key factors driving the growth of the regional market are increasing need to consolidate the threat detection and prevention operations at one place, and enterprises focus on the vulnerability and threat exposures of their systems. Digital change in critical infrastructure has extended the danger environment in recent years, making vital Indian infrastructure systems such as gas, water supply, and government services increasingly vulnerable to cyberattacks. Indeed, India ranks first among the 20 countries with critical infrastructure installations that use default login credentials, leaving it particularly susceptible.

Cyber-attacks against Middle Eastern companies increased during 2021. The majority of this increase was caused by threat actors linked to five known clusters outside the area that targeted vital infrastructure, manufacturing, utilities, and oil and gas infrastructure. Attacks on oil and gas companies and the manufacturing sector are increasing disproportionately.
