Application security is the process of developing, adding, and testing security features within applications to prevent security vulnerabilities against threats such as unauthorized access and modification. Application security solutions help companies secure their software applications, including legacy, mobile, third-party, and open-source applications. Several industries and organizations, including retail, BFSI telecom, and healthcare, are deploying this technology worldwide on a considerable scale.

The growing need for application security in the banking sector, rising security breaches in business applications, and growing demand for mobile app security services are the key factors driving the growth of the application security market.

However, the high dependency on vulnerable open source applications and the COVID-19-induced global economic downturn are expected to pose serious challenges to the growth of the application security market.

Impact of COVID-19 on the Application Security Market

The COVID-19 pandemic caused a widespread economic downturn as several countries imposed strict lockdowns to contain the infection, resulting in the closure of manufacturing industries and disruptions in supply chains and production schedules. There has been a significant impact on technology supply chains globally. The uncertainty regarding the possible length of lockdowns and supply chain disruptions has made it an arduous task for industry players to anticipate the resurgence in the application security industry. Thus, the crisis is expected to cause structural shifts that would have significant implications for this industry.

The lockdown has negatively impacted the manufacturing, transportation, retail, IT & telecom, and energy & utility industries. However, the adoption of application security is on the rise in the healthcare sector. The rapid spread of the COVID-19 pandemic has strained the global healthcare networks and systems, affecting critical, life-saving operations and processes. Therefore, healthcare facilities are increasingly adopting application security technology to control health data and patient data security fraud.

In addition, application security solutions play a significant role in handling uncertainties in the banking and financial services sector. These solutions facilitate serverless protection, software composition analysis, correlation tools, and test coverage analysis. Such applications have helped the application security market sustain during the COVID-19 crisis.

The global application security market is segmented by component (software tools, services), type (web application security, mobile application security), deployment mode (on-premises, cloud), organization size (SMEs, large enterprises), end user (BFSI, manufacturing, healthcare, retail, government, education, media & entertainment, IT & telecom, energy & utilities, other end users), and geography. The study also evaluates industry competitors and analyses the market at the country level.

Based on component, the software tools segment is expected to emerge as the largest segment in the overall application security market in 2021. The large market share of this segment is mainly attributed to rising data and security breaches, growing demand for mobile app security services, increasing focus on software solution-centric security capabilities, and adoption of AI in web and mobile-based security processes. In addition, the benefits of application security software tools, such as high performance, reliability, comprehensive vulnerability coverage, false-positive reduction, zero process disruption, and secure real-time applications, further augment the growth of this segment. However, the service segment is expected to record the fastest growth over the forecast period due to the wide adoption of application security services across all industry verticals.

Based on type, the web application security segment is expected to command the largest share of the overall application security market in 2021. The large market share of this segment is mainly attributed to the rising demand for filtering and monitoring HTTP traffic between web applications, growing adoption of AI for web applications, and rising demand for SaaS-based web application security solutions. However, the mobile application security segment is expected to record the fastest growth during the forecast period.

Based on the end user, the application security market is segmented into retail, government, BFSI, healthcare, IT & telecom, education, energy & utilities, media & entertainment, manufacturing, and other end users. In 2021, the retail segment is expected to command the largest share of the overall application security market. The large market share of this segment is mainly attributed to the constant evolving threats in the retail sector, the rise of e-commerce platforms, the rising need to handle massive web traffic, and the growing demand for securing online payments.

However, the healthcare segment is projected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period owing to the increasing demand for controlling fraud related to health data and increasing research & development activities in the healthcare sector.

Based on geography, North America is expected to command the largest share of the global application security market in 2021. The large market share is mainly attributed to the presence of prominent players offering advanced application security solutions and services to various sectors in the region.
