Global Market Size, Forecast, and Trend Highlights Over 2024-2036

Cloud-native Application Protection Platform Market size is anticipated to surpass USD 350 Billion by the end of 2036, growing at a CAGR of 20% during the forecast period i.e., 2024-2036.In the year 2023, industry size of cloud-native application protection platform was USD 27 Billion. As enterprises use more cloud providers, applications, and resources, their cloud infrastructures have become even more complex. Furthermore, the market is expanding due to rising incidences of cyberattacks. The Lockbit ransomware attack, which caused six terabytes of data to be stolen in August 2021, has hit the worldwide IT consulting firm Accenture's network. Most security solutions do not have the end-to-end visibility needed to effectively assess risks and notify security teams of sophisticated cyberattacks, enabling them to manage them.

CNAPP stands out from the rest because of its ability to aggregate data and create end-to-end visibility across an organization's application infrastructure. It can prioritize alerts that could pose a risk to enterprises with an encrypted system for visibility and granular details of the technology stack, configuration, or identity. This factor is thus boosting demand for CNAPP market.

Cloud-native Application Protection Platform Market: Growth Drivers and Challenges

Growth Drivers

  • Companies Using BYOD and Remote Working Substitutes - Cloud based technologies enable employees to work from home from their personal devices while at the same time being connected to office servers. Due to the growing popularity of Public Cloud solutions and BYOD legislation, businesses are beginning to shift their deployment paradigm. The Work from Home and Bring Your Own Device initiatives are rapidly being adopted by organizations. Remote employment helps to promote overall health and allows businesses to counter the loss of productivity.
  • Integration of Cloud Based Technologies - The development of new machine learning and AI capabilities and the facilitation of more productive work is facilitated by cloud-based solutions. In order to protect endpoints and data centers, not cloud-native applications and services, traditional security methods and solutions have been developed. Security teams must be able to detect security problems and vulnerabilities at the earliest stage of development, rapidly solve them as well as guarantee reliable protection when using cloud technologies.


  • Lack of Technical Education Availability - For the deployment and maintenance of the CNAPP solution, technical expertise and experience are required. However, businesses have begun to employ security managers with insufficient training and experience over the last few years. Advanced cloud and security capabilities are more in demand than ever, but there is a severe shortage of certified, competent workers to support this shift, particularly in non-tech-related businesses, as per Forbes study from 2020 titled The Cloud Talent Drought Continues.
  • Complexities associated with cloud-native application protection platform are expected to hinder the CNAPP market growth in the forecast period
  • Lack of skilled labor is expected to hamper the market expansion in the upcoming period.
