A USD$11 Billion Revenue Opportunity for 5G Network Security Solutions and Services by 2026

As the 5G network rollout accelerates worldwide, the market for network security is materializing quickly. ABI Research forecasts a total revenue opportunity of US$11.6 billion by 2026. Delivered initially through hardware sales to telcos, the software and services opportunity is expected to grow significantly in the latter part of the forecast period.

Initially, the capex on network security appliances is driving the hardware opportunity, as the new infrastructure is being built by communication service providers. “Communication Service Providers (CSPs) are buying the solutions required primarily from network equipment providers and pure-play cybersecurity vendors. In time, other specialized third parties will penetrate the market as CSPs move towards 5G stand-alone,” explains Michela Menting, Digital Security Research Director.

Oil & Gas Firms to Spend US$15 Billion on Digital Transformation Technologies by the End of the Decade

Oil & Gas firms face a myriad of operational, commercial, and existential threats. According to ABI Research, these firms are turning to digitalization to combat these threats and will spend US$15.6 billion on digital technologies in 2030.

Safety and Security are top priorities for Oil & Gas operators. Data analytics allied with IoT platforms have become essential to identifying issues ahead of time such as pipeline degradation, wellhead performance, and pollution from gas flares. Increasingly, however, network security is rapidly becoming a concern for both the C-suite and Governments,” explains Michael Larner, Industrial & Manufacturing Principal Analyst.
