Since cloud environments offer shared resources, it is particularly important to make sure that users can only access the information in their cloud-based applications that they are authorized to view.

Additionally, since sensitive data is sent from the user to the application across the internet and back again, cloud-based applications are also more prone to security breaches. A public cloud security incident was experienced by about 26% of firms in the past year, an increase of approximately 9% from the year before, and about 79% of businesses had at least one cloud security event in that time frame across the globe according to a survey.

Application Security Sector: Growth Drivers and Challenges

Growth Drivers

  • Growing Demand for Online Shopping

Globally, there are about 3 billion digital buyers. This means approximately 30% of the population all around the world do online shopping. Further, online retail are also including various features and options in order to remain in the competition. However, along with advanced feathers comes the threat of cyber risk. Typically, fraudsters accomplish this by breaking into e-commerce websites and collecting login or credit card information from users. They may employ it to either pose as customers and make fraudulent purchases or to sell information about consumers to other criminals online. Hence, the need for application security is growing with the rise in number of online shoppers.

  • Surge in Merges & Acquisitions of Company

The risk of cyber security rises with the growing trend of merge and acquisitions of the company. Since integration and data exchange may expose assets to risks to their confidentiality, integrity, and availability (CIA), mergers and acquisitions constitute a considerable risk to organizations. Therefore, organizations should take application security into consideration before merging or acquiring an organization.

  • Rise in Risk of Cybersecurity to Small Businesses

In 2021, globally, about 42% of small businesses were on target for security attacks. Moreover, given their modest online profile, small and medium-sized businesses (SMEs) don't believe they might become the target of an attack, as all the media attention is given to huge enterprise data breaches as those at Yahoo and TalkTalk. Therefore, they become more vulnerable to security attacks. As a result, small businesses are influenced more to focus on application security.


  • Not Sufficient Budgets – The cost of application and innovating it on timely bases carries a huge price. Hence, especially small businesses find it difficult to invest in application protection. Hence, this factor is stated to restrain the growth of the market.
  • Inaccurate Sense of Security
  • Lack of Experts

Type of Security Testing (DAST, SAST, IAST, RASP)

The SAST segment in the application security market is anticipated to register a share of 40 % by the end of 2035. This growth could be owing to the rising advantages of SAST. Since most SAST tools are automated, they can quickly and effectively investigate the whole source. This enables an in-depth study of the code and decreases the possibility of overlooking a vulnerability. Additionally, SAST can assist in lowering remediation costs by finding and repairing vulnerabilities early in the development phase.

End-User Vertical (Healthcare, BFSI, Education, Retail, Government)

The BFSI segment in the application security market is set to grow at a notable share of over 11% over the forecast period. The BFSI industry is one of major critical infrastructure sectors that experiences frequent cyber-attacks, and data breaches due to the magnitude of its customer base and the highly confidential financial data involved.
