The global DDoS protection and mitigation market size generated total revenue of USD 2.5 billion in 2020 and is expected to reach USD 4.8 billion by 2027, growing at a CAGR of 11%.
Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) is amongst the most common attacks by hackers. It overloads network hosts with invalid requests from “distributed” sources, which results in the important or legitimate requests being ignored or lost in total. DDoS is a growing concern and in 2020, new forms of attacks were revealed. Considering how potent these forms of attacks are, the importance for DDoS mitigation services cannot be emphasized enough.

North America is the largest market for DDoS mitigation services. The intense competition and the presence of all major players make it a lucrative market for cybersecurity as a whole, especially DDoS. As a region with one of the highest adoption and penetration of 5G and IoT, the demand for DDoS solutions will soar in the next 5 years. The major target for DDoS attackers are the large enterprises within the region, especially the United States. In addition to governments that are very aware of the need to enhance cybersecurity, the region is also a target because of its position in global politics.
North America DDoS protection and mitigation market is expected to 2.3 Billion by 2027, growing at a CAGR of 9.5% between 2021 and 2027. To understand geography trends
Straits Research’s study on IoT devices states that there will be approximately 70 Billion IoT devices by 2027. This exponential rise in IoT has contributed to a significant increase in DDoS attacks recently. The security protocols of connected devices are weak making them extremely vulnerable to be deployed as botnets. The adoption of 5G is going to contribute to the increase in the use of connected devices to launch DDoS attacks.
While the accelerated adoption of IoT and Cloud will increase the risk of DDoS attack, a rise in demand is less likely to keep pace. Not many enterprises accord high priority to DDoS and this is reflected in the difference in potential use of botnets versus growth of DDoS mitigation demand.
The surge in hybrid environments―an IT infrastructure comprising on-premise, private cloud, and public cloud – will enhance demand for hybrid DDoS solutions. A lot of SMEs require only basic cloud based services, large enterprises having cloud and on-premise set up will require hybrid solutions. Sectors such as BFSI have norms and compliances that make on-premise capabilities imperative, but given the clear benefits of cloud, private cloud adoption is causing significant security measures.
