“Growing demand for sophisticated security solutions to prevent cyber-attacks is the major driving factor for the database security market.”

The global database security market size is expected to grow from USD2.95 billion in 2017 to USD 7.01 billion by 2022, at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 18.9% during the forecast period. The database security market is driven by rising threats including SQL injection, Denial of Service (DoS) attacks, and malware attacks.

Growing demand for sophisticated security solutions and evolving regulatory landscapes are driving the database security market. However, limited security budgets and high installation cost of solutions may restrain the growth of database security market.  

“Encryption and tokenization software is estimated to hold the largest market size in 2017 in the database security market. The trend is expected to continue during the forecast period.”

Database encryption is one of the crucial solutions for securing the database. The database encryption can be done in 2 ways: encryption of data at rest and encryption of data in transit with better authentication control. Vendors in the market offer various encryption solutions to protect sensitive business data from both insiders as well as outsiders. These solutions enable the users to maintain row- or column-level encryption and file encryption. Regulations across countries have set new standards for protecting customer information. These are standards for the security of medical records (HIPPA) and financial industry (PCIDSS), regarding the privacy and security of customers’ personal financial and health information.

“APAC is projected to grow at the highest rate during the forecast period.”

APAC is the highest growing region in the database security market. The market in India, China, Japan, Australia, and South Korea is growing at a significant rate. Owing to the massive growth of data from all industries in this, database security solutions are widely adopted. Whether it is manufacturing or media and entertainment, an enormous flow of data is increasing the need for an effective database security solution. Initially, organizations used to store the data in the form of silos. These silos made it difficult to manage and maintain the data security. Hence, the database security solutions and services are expected to witness a high adoption rate in this region. A recent study has shown a significant Hadoop adoption in the APAC region. This has indicated a rise in large volumes of data as well. Hence, various enterprises in this region have adopted the database security solutions to secure this massive amount of data.
