Rise in the number of connected smart devices and increasing IT security budgets are expected to be major drivers of the network traffic analysis solutions market. To minimize/eliminate the chances of cyber-attacks, various organizations are compelled to increase their IT spending on advanced network security solutions. The market is also expected to receive a boost from advancements in the field of cyber security and rise in the number of smart city projects. Furthermore, migration toward cloud computing is expected to drive the market in the next few years. Cloud-based solutions require managed services, which is directly eliminating in-house IT support. In addition, growth of micro, small, and medium enterprises (MSMEs) is a key factor that is expected to fuel the network traffic analysis solutions market in the coming years. Unlike large enterprises, SMEs do not have in-house IT capabilities and are thus dependent on service providers for their security, communications, and IT requirements. However, the market is expected to be hindered by concerns over data security due to vulnerable networks with infrequent security updates. Moreover, the market is expected to face restraints as the bring your own device (BYOD) movement is gaining momentum.
With more new countries/regions set to announce their 5G plans, the industry is expected to witness tremendous growth in the 5G market as well as in the total amount of data generated.
