Drivers & Restraints-

Rising Expenditure on Defense by Developing Countries to Aid Growth

As per our analysis, North America will be overtaken by Asia Pacific by the end of 2029 because of its high spending on regional defense. In significant countries, such as India, Japan, and China, the increasing expenditure to refine the security of military services by government bodies will propel the defense cybersecurity market growth in the near future. In 2020, for instance, the defense budget of South Korea was USD 44 billion. However, the small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) often lack quality certifications to maintain robust partnerships with multiple companies. It may obstruct the demand for defense cybersecurity services.
