Based on Solution, Defense Solutions Segment to Dominate the market during the forecast period. Attacks on governments, businesses, and individuals have increased on an exponential basis. Defense infrastructure is fast becoming a target of choice among both individual and state-sponsored cyber-attackers, who now acknowledge the value of disrupting security systems that were previously considered impenetrable. The increased adoption of machine-to-machine technologies in the aerospace domain and the focus of the governments on enhancing cyber security to counter cyber terrorism has led to the growth of the cyber security market in this sector in the past decade. The defense companies, such as BAE Systems PLC, General Dynamics Corporation, Finmeccanica S.p.A., are engaged in developing cyber security solutions in the defense industry, especially in designing network security solutions and software, to prevent cyber-attacks on military software systems, proving the increasing demand from the sector. Navigation and guidance systems can be highly susceptible to cyber-attacks, which can have widespread ramifications. Hence, the computers and networks for all the ground and air-borne operations need robust security infrastructure.

Based on Region, North America to be the Fastest Growing Market. North America presently holds the largest market for cyber security solutions. The strong presence of several market incumbents, coupled with recent security threats in the region, and the thriving defense industry is expected to drive the adoption of these solutions further. Due to the increasing incidents of cyberattacks in the country, the governments in this region are significantly investing in dealing with these cyber attacks. As a major developed economy, the United States is highly dependent on the Internet and is therefore highly exposed to cyber-attacks. At the same time, the country has substantial capabilities in defense due to advanced technology and a large military budget. Malicious hacking from domestic or foreign enemies remains a constant threat to the United States. In response to these growing threats, the country has developed significant cyber capabilities for the defense sector.

Moreover, the United States Cyber Command centralizes command of cyberspace operations, organizes existing cyber resources, and synchronizes defense of US military networks. The recent annual budget plans of the US government earmarked more than USD 11 billion for cybersecurity-related initiatives and USD 9.6 billion for the FY 2020 budget, specifically for the Defense Department Cyber Operations. This was done due to the increasing number of cyberattacks in the country. Also, according to an Atlas VPN investigation, the US government is set to allocate USD 18.78 billion for cybersecurity spending in the FY 2021 budget. In addition, the DOD digital security budget may amount to over 50% of the whole federal cybersecurity spending. Canada is expected to have a significant market share for the defense cybersecurity market. Expanding the cyber defense budget, government initiatives to secure a computerized framework, and spotlight on reinforcing cybersecurity approaches are the key driving element affecting the demand in the country. Besides, the foundation of cybersecurity units and deploying powerful cybersecurity systems inside government organizations, military and guard part are further driving business sector development.
