Based on the deployment type, the hybrid segment is to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecasted period

The API security market is divided into on-premises, hybrid, and cloud deployment modes. The hybrid deployment mode experiences the highest CAGR, offering organizations a comprehensive solution for their API security needs. This mode combines the benefits of cloud and on-premises gateways to provide improved security, reduced attack surface, and protection for sensitive data and applications. It optimizes performance by placing gateways closer to API consumers, enhancing user experience with reduced latency. The hybrid deployment mode also brings flexibility in managing API security, enabling organizations to choose the most suitable gateway types for different environments. Furthermore, it helps organizations reduce costs, ensure compliance with industry regulations, and offer scalability and manageability, making it a favored choice in the API security landscape. Thus, the hybrid deployment mode accounts for the highest CAGR during the forecasted period.

By organization size, small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) account for the highest CAGR.

Small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) contribute the highest CAGR due to various factors. Adopting APIs on a large scale has allowed SMEs to improve connectivity and streamline data sharing, all while maintaining a strong focus on security. However, the rise in API attacks poses significant risks to SMEs in terms of finance and operations, prompting them to prioritize implementing robust API security measures. SMEs are becoming increasingly aware of potential vulnerabilities and actively incorporating security best practices such as OAuth 2.0 and JSON Web Tokens (JWTs). Furthermore, the availability of comprehensive API security solutions empowers SMEs to effectively protect their APIs by implementing security protocols, continuously monitoring for threats, and swiftly responding to attacks. By driving the demand for such solutions, SMEs play a significant role in shaping the API security market.

By region, Asia Pacific is to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period.

The Asia Pacific region accounts for the highest market size due to several key factors. The region is experiencing rapid growth fueled by adopting cloud computing, mobile devices, and IoT, leading to an increased demand for application security. Initiatives by organizations like APCERT, ACSC, NCCS, and Japan’s Cybersecurity Strategy Council are facilitating coordinated responses, providing resources, releasing guidelines, and promoting research. These efforts align with international organizations such as ISO, OWASP, and CSA. As a result, the Asia Pacific region is anticipated to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecasted period.
