Increase in Demand for Defense IT Expenditure is Boosting the Market Growth

Defense IT expenses are on the surge across various developed economies such as U.S., France, UK, and China. According to an analysis from Govini, a data science firm, in July 2021, the U.S. department of defense requested a 7.8% increase in its 2022 fiscal year budget for IT. The total defense IT expenditure in the U.S. has been growing since 2019. Thus, growth in the use of IT hardware, software, and services have implemented several changes in the defense sector, including real-time combat surveillance, superiority in air & space, smart weapons and battlefield management in a network-centric environment, and force multipliers-related software.

Furthermore, implementing IT solutions in defense operations has become significant, owing to the growing evolution in the type and occurrence of attacks across the globe. This is anticipated to surge in demand for innovative and modern technologies such as 5G, artificial intelligence, cloud computing, data analytics, cyber security, and autonomous systems across various defense systems. Such initiatives lead to the increase in demand for defense IT expenditure, which in turn propels the military cybersecurity industry.

Limited Awareness Related to Cybersecurity are Restricting the Market Growth

The government workforce is the first line of defense against intrusion by criminals, offenders, or antagonistic nations. The internet has made it simpler for antagonists worldwide to attack even the municipality, department, or agency.

Countries with archaic IT technology are easy targets for ransomware attacks or malware infections. Thus, hackers hit under-prepared government bureaucrats with malware, email phishing scams, or stolen passwords to break in and steal confidential and vital government data or lock up critical systems required for operations and services.

For instance, phishing scams are the act of using fake text messages or emails to trick people into clicking on sketchy website links to steal personal information. Government officials must be conscious of the precise ways to avoid cyber-attacks and are constantly kept aware of and involved in the topic. Without suitable training, any government official can make the silly but possibly disturbing error of clicking on a deceitful email or website link. Hence, owing to the limited awareness related to cyber security is expected to hamper the military cyber security market.

Adoption of IoT in Cyber Security Technology Will Create Lucrative Growth Opportunities

Several countries use IoT in military and defense applications to resolve difficulties during conflict and combat. The internet of military things (IoMT), or internet of battlefield things (IoBT), is a kind of IoT used in current warfare and information warfare. IoMT is taking off a lot of physical and mental stress in the field by building a small ecosystem of smart technology that can process sensory data and handle many tasks at once. Its main objective is to solve difficulties that come up during modern conflict.

For instance, in July 2022, the Government of India (GoI) launched 75 newly developed artificial intelligence (AI) products or technologies. The government has already set up the defense artificial intelligence council (DAIC) and targets to give the defense the correct structure to implement IoT applications. Such technology will further enhance the needs and importance of IoT in current problems and challenges and fulfill the gaps in existing methods and ideas for improving surveillance & reconnaissance cyber security in the Indian defense ecosystem and operations. Thus, increasing adoption of IoT and AI will further help in creating market opportunity for the military cybersecurity industry in the forecast period.
