In the services segment, professional services that include consulting, training and education, and support services are expected to hold a larger market size than managed services, as professional services enable enterprises to remain robust against emerging cyber threats. Managed services are expected to grow at a CAGR higher than professional services due to to increasing demands for Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) applications among Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs).

Among the various testing types, Interactive Application Security Testing (IAST) is expected to grow at the highest CAGR as IAST enables greater detection of internal and external vulnerabilities in the applications, which might malfunction the applications. Many application security solution vendors are planning to launch the IAST solution soon.

In terms of the market size, Static Application Security Testing (SAST) is expected to hold the largest market size as SAST is used in the early phase of the Software Development Life Cycle (SDLC) and is mostly preferred by application developers.

The cloud-based deployment mode is the most preferred among the end-users, which makes it a higher contributor as well as a faster growing deployment mode as compared to the on-premises mode. Key reasons for the high adoption of cloud-based solutions are cost effectiveness, easy manageability, mobility support, and zero maintenance concerns.
