Projections for the Cyber Industry

The global cybersecurity market is projected to continue experiencing significant growth over the next five years due to increasing cyber threats, the adoption of cloud-based technologies, and the proliferation of IoT devices. The market is expected to grow at a CAGR of around 10% between 2023 and 2028, reaching approximately $400 billion by the end of the forecast period.

The rising prevalence of cyber attacks in various industries, the growing importance of compliance and regulatory requirements, and the complexity of the threat landscape are expected to drive demand for advanced cybersecurity solutions. The Asia Pacific region is expected to experience the highest growth rates, followed by North America and Europe.

The information security field is projected to grow by 31% from 2020 to 2028.

Rapidly Growing Cybersecurity Job Openings

Burning Glass has found that the number of cybersecurity job postings has grown by 94% in just six years, compared to the 30% growth rate of IT jobs in general. Cybersecurity jobs now account for 13% of all information technology jobs. However, this surge in demand has created a shortage of qualified candidates, making it difficult for employers to fill cybersecurity roles.
