Risk analytics solutions are witnessing the rising demand due to increasing competitive pressure on SMEs and global regulatory frameworks and government policies. The substantial growth in the Risk Analytics Market can be credited to the increasing organizational need to minimize the losses incurred due to risks, maximize their return on investment, and enhance their decision making process.

“We’re seeing a rise in regulatory pressure from a cyber perspective with mandates and guidance like the PCI-DSS and NIST Cybersecurity Framework. Adhering to those kinds of requirements and frameworks will factor into companies’ overall risk management mandates. Enterprises are increasingly leveraging risk analytics to effectively gather supporting information from multiple security data sources in order to quantify their cyber risks, automate their security operations, and make intelligence-driven decisions in response to those cyber risks to their business. The overall risk analytics market needs to account for cyber as one of the key parameters and addressable markets driving the new digital transformation in enterprises,” Feris Rifai, CEO at Bay Dynamics, told Help Net Security.

Manufacturing segment to grow at the highest rate

The manufacturing segment is expected to grow at a rapid rate from 2016 to 2021 in the Risk Analytics Market. The high growth rate can be attributed to the rapidly changing customer expectations, fierce market competition, and stringent regulatory constraints faced by the manufacturing industries.

North America is expected to contribute the largest market share

North America is expected to have the largest market share and dominate the Risk Analytics Market from 2016 to 2021, due to increasing adoption of risk analytics software and services by organizations in order to safeguard their businesses from losses and also because of the stern non-compliance measures adopted by the government and various regulatory bodies in this region.
