Major trends expected in the forecast period include the integration of artificial intelligence in ransomware protection, the implementation of blockchain-based security solutions, the development of automated incident response systems, the rising demand for threat intelligence sharing platforms, and a heightened focus on user education and awareness.

The anticipated surge in phishing attacks is poised to drive the growth of the ransomware protection market in the foreseeable future. Notably, in the first quarter of 2022, the Anti-Phishing Working Group reported a substantial increase in phishing attacks, recording a total of 1,025,968 incidents, reflecting a 15% rise from the fourth quarter of 2021. This escalation in phishing attacks stands as a primary driver for the growth of the ransomware protection market.
