The intrusion prevention system market is forecast to surpass $8.5 billion by 2025, according to IndustryARC, a research and consulting firm.
The intrusion prevention system market is forecast to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 13.7 percent during the period 2019-2025, said IndustryARC. This growth comes amid growing awareness and concern among corporates regarding their cyber security and data protection practices.

But concern is not limited to financial institutions, with aerospace, defense, healthcare and transportation among the sectors found to be increasing their use of this kind of technology.
