Report examines forecast for critical infrastructure security

The Critical Infrastructure Protection market has come under scrutiny in a new report forecasting five year growth to over 100 billion dollars annually.

The concept of protecting critical infrastructure has become more of an imperitive as once isolated industrial networks have become more integrated with internet protocol (IP) networks and therefore exposed to the same vulnerabilities and potential for attack.

The advancement of technology for the protection of such networks is now the subject of a new report from Research and Markets called “Critical Infrastructure Protection: Global Advancements, Market Forecasts and Analysis 2013-2018”.

The report covers a broad scope of infrastructure protection technologies and includes physical and network security, the protection of SCADA systems (Supervisory Control And Data Acquisition), secure communications and vehicle identification.

Valued at around 63 billion dollars in 2013, the market is expected to grow over the next five years with a compound annual growth rate of nearly 11% to reach over 105 billion dollars in 2018.

Adoption of the technology has been slower in some segments, particularly within the manufacturing and transportation industries but this is expected to grow significantly as a result of recent attacks exposing certain vulnerabilities and the need for such industries to meet regulatory compliance requirements set by various government bodies in the future.

The different segments of the market are examined within the report as well as suppliers in the industry, geographical areas and technology considerations.
