Global Market Size, Forecast, and Trend Highlights Over 2023-2035

Runtime Application Self-Protection (RASP) Market size is expected to reach USD 6 Billion by the end of 2035, growing at a CAGR of 33% during the forecast period, i.e., 2023-2035. In the year 2022, the industry size of runtime application self-protection (rasp) was USD 1 Billion. The growth of the market can be attributed to increasing demand for integrated security suites which is an important criterion for the growing complexity of network infrastructure. Applications have become an opportune target for hackers to penetrate into an organization and exploit a vulnerability in an application. According to a vulnerability statistics report, approximately 50% of internal application vulnerabilities and 32% of web application vulnerabilities are considered high or critical risks around the world.

 Moreover, the implementation of a bring-your-own-device (BYOD) policy, and enabling the use of personal devices such as laptops, smartphones, and tablets further increases the chances of cyberattacks. It is estimated that nearly 67% of employees around the world use their personal devices at work. This leads to fraudulent activities with data breaches and misuse of business data. RASP technology is a server-based technology that integrates with an application to deal with attacks in real time, providing more visibility into hidden vulnerabilities. These factors are further driving the growth of the RASP market.

Runtime Application Self-Protection (RASP) Sector: Growth Drivers and Challenges

Growth Drivers

  • Increasing Demand for Integrated Security Suites – Integration security provides organizations protection by minimizing the risk from threats that involve an integration process of the system. Multiway protection is provided by this system integration through interlinking the access control, video management, public address system, and alarm systems. Unlike firewalls, this system integration is expected to provide a multi-layered security system to organizations linking all the threat risks. The increasing cyberattacks across the world are estimated to boost market growth. As per the reports, the ransomware attacks in 2019 were raised by over 40% including more than 200,000 business organizations with loss of access to important files across the world.

  • Implementation of Bring-Your-Own-Device (BYOD) Policy in Many Sectors – According to the estimations, BYOD was worth over USD 75 billion worldwide and more than 60% of business organizations observed productivity rise after using BYOD.

  • Rising Needed for Data Security Around the World with Many Cyber Attacks – As per the observations, cybersecurity and technology risk management are estimated to raise by over 11% by the end of 2023 around the globe.

  • Rising Use of Applications for Business and Other Works – According to the observations of 2022, over 80% of people across the U.S. are spending their time using applications on smartphones.


  • Limited budget to deploy cutting-edge security solutions - However, a limited budget in organizations to deploy cutting-edge security solutions is likely to restrain the growth of the market. Moreover, high R&D expenses to develop advanced RASP solutions lead to high pricing of security solutions. This may further challenge the market growth.
  • High R&D expenses to develop advanced RASP solutions
  • High Cost of Innovation
