The global SOC-as-a-Service market is expected to reach a valuation of US$11844.1 million by 2032, with the market growing at a CAGR of 24.3% from 2022 to 2032, according to Future Market Insights.

Predicted to reach an estimated US$1340.3 million in 2022, the target market is likely fuelled by rising cyber security threats, the researchers state.

With the prevalence of remote work culture, the risk of cyber crime and phishing also increases. The SOC-as-a-service market is witnessing heightened demand to counteract this threat.

With the surge in the prevalence of data breaches and cyber-attacks in small, medium, and large-scale businesses all across the globe, the demand for efficient and reliable SOC-as-a-Service solutions is also on the rise.

Cyber security has become a crucial aspect for organisations around the world to protect and conserve their digital assets from rising cyber threats.

Cyber security threats such as phishing attacks, ransomware, browser gateway frauds, distributed-denial-of-service (DDoS), whaling, malware, and spear phishing are growing in the frequency of occurrence and becoming a serious concern for various organisations, the researchers state. Consequently, as a counterattack, SOC-as-a-service solutions are registering heightened demand.

Cyber threats not only diminish business productivity but also threaten critical IT infrastructure and present a risk to sensitive information.

The swift growth of digital transactions across industries is further increasing the frequency of cyber crime. All of these considerations underpin the demand for the SOC-as-a-Service market as it can enhance the security and consumer trust of an organisation.

“Rise in security breaches along with increasing cyber attack complexity is expected to spearhead the global growth of the SOC-as-a-service market over the forecast period,” states an FMI analyst.
