The global virtual private network market size is expected to reach USD 92.60 billion by 2027, according to a new report by Grand View Research, Inc. The market is anticipated to expand at a CAGR of 17.4% from 2020 to 2027. The rising level of cybersecurity threats is expected to drive the growth of the market over the forecast period. While high-speed data networks are being rolled out and connected devices are proliferating continuously, data security and privacy protection are emerging as major issues, as people visiting public places are often logging into unsecured Wi-Fi networks. Individuals are particularly targeted by hackers when they enter into vulnerable hotspots and log on to unsecured networks. This is driving the adoption of Virtual Private Networks (VPNs) and leverage the encryption provided by the VPN technology to protect people from malicious activities.
The rising adoption of VPN solutions across several industry verticals and the growing security concerns are some of the significant factors that are driving the growth of the market. For an organization, a virtual private network can potentially encrypt any data to secure the organizational resources when the data is being transferred over a public internet connection. Thus, a VPN subsequently helps in saving expenses by eliminating the need for leased lines. A VPN also helps in improving operational efficiency. For instance, Brown Bear Corporation, which deals with utility, environmental, and manufacturing applications, uses a VPN solution to allow the company’s staff to connect to the Brown Bear store or the office to reduce the drive time and increase the management efficiency.
VPNs help in bypassing internet censorship. Since VPN services encrypt complete data, the government is unable to censor a VPN connection, thereby allowing both commercial users and individual users to access sites that would otherwise be impassable. Hence, companies and citizens often turn to VPN solutions to overcome enforced censorship and access the sites that are blocked in any particular country. As a result, although countries, such as China, and Russia, among others, have imposed strict restrictions on VPNs; these restrictions have increased awareness about VPNs rather than restraining the growth of the market.
