Deep packet inspection (DPI) is a type of computer network packet filtering that investigates the data including the header of a data packet as it goes through the inspection point. The global network security market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.71% by 2016. However, the growth of the DPI market is projected to be faster as data security threat is continuously rising.
Some of the key drivers for the market growth are higher IP traffic due to adoption of high speed broadband globally, higher penetration of mobile devices and stiff competition among network service providers. However, privacy and network neutrality concerns, lack of DPI awareness and availability of open source DPI are some of the key restraints for the market growth. The DPI market is segmented on the basis of products, end-users and geographic regions.
DPI Product Market Analysis
The product segment consists of standalone DPI products and integrated DPI products. Standalone products include those products that are used by end-users individually and are not connected to any commercial network. Integrated products are a part of a commercial infrastructure, which consists of multiple devices integrated into one or more networks. For example, a personal computer used at home is a standalone product, while the one used in a commercial environment such as office is an integrated product. Since the number of integrated products is very high, it is expected that DPI market for these products would have higher revenue as compared to standalone products.
DPI End-User Market Analysis
The end-user segment consists of governments, internet service providers (ISPs), enterprises, education and others. ISPs are the ones that offer data services to all the other end-users; therefore, it is expected that they would install the DPI services in their infrastructure initially. Due to this factor, it is expected that ISPs would have the highest market share. However, government sectors would be the fastest growing sector as these departments collect highly sensitive data that need apposite data security.
DPI Geography Market Analysis
The market is segmented into various geographic regions such as North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific and Rest of the World (RoW). The North American region is expected to adopt the technology early, as technological advances usually take place in this region; therefore, it is would have the highest revenue share among other geographies. However, Asia-Pacific region is expected to generate maximum data over the next few years; therefore, it is expected that this region would have the fastest growth rate.
