Global Next-Generation Firewall Market Forecast and Trends

The global Next-Generation Firewall market is estimated to reach USD 7.01 Billion in 2026 at a significant CAGR of 12.5% due to rising cyber-attacks and enforcement of government initiative for cybersecurity across the globe. An increase in IoT-based sophisticated threat, rise in several data breach cases and surge in demand for next-generation firewall solutions supported by government regulations for data safety & security propel the next-generation firewall market growth. Companies continue to invest in solutions that enable them to secure their data and focus on comprehensive solutions to ensure hackers are not able to gain access to their networks. Spending to safeguard against hacking and more advanced threats have been increasing annually, especially in developing economies such as China and India.

Global Next-Generation Firewall Market Overview:

Next-generation firewall (NGFW) is a third-generation firewall technology to perform traditional firewall functions along with the advanced network device filtering. It is a hardware-based and software-based network security system that does an in-depth control of the packet to detect and block attacks to secure the system. Next-generation firewalls can be defined as a process of gathering, archiving, handling, and reporting of the logs. The benefits of firewalls are all traffic entering a user’s computer network can be monitored; it blocks Trojans, stops hackers, stops critical loggers, and having a firewall dramatically reduces the risk of being observed. The difference between traditional firewalls is more advanced features such as filtering packets based on applications. Next-generation firewalls provide policy-based visibility, as well as control over applications, and prevent data leakage by users and other threats, which are features or functionalities that are not offered by traditional firewalls. Also, first- and second-generation firewalls perform the stateful inspection, while NGFWs perform a more in-depth inspection.

Growth drivers

Enforcement of government initiative for cybersecurity

Governments across the globe have taken several regulatory initiatives regarding data security to overcome the issue of data breaches. These cybersecurity regulations aim to mandate the organizations to defend their systems and information from cyberattacks. Industry regulations such as the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), etc. promote the adoption of advanced cybersecurity solutions in critical industries such as BFSI, healthcare, and government. These regulations, in turn, build pressure on the organizations to set-up enhanced security infrastructure and to promote the adoption of advanced security solutions such as next-generation firewalls. As a result, these regulations propel the growth of the global next-generation firewall market.

The rising IoT trend

Internet of things (IoT) is a key trend that is propelling the next-generation firewall market. Currently, the small and large enterprises are adopting IoT for leveraging advanced business models such as pay-per-usage, asset sharing, generating real-time operational insights, which includes, outcome-based model, equipment monitoring, and security issue identification. While the adoption of IoT devices improves business productivity, such tools can easily fall prey to the cyber-attacks as they are connected to the internet and other networks. As a result, most of the companies are deploying next-generation firewall solutions for providing defensive competences against the different applications.

Restraints

The high cost of solutions

Due to the rising technological advancements, enterprises will be seeking more secure SD-WAN & Wi-Fi networks. Virtualization and BYOD, are shifting businesses from traditional security solutions to more advanced threat management systems. As a result, the threat of security breaches has increased significantly, leading enterprises to shift towards modern UTM solutions due to its low price as compare to other solutions and which creates an obstacle in the growth of the next-generation firewall market.
