Analysts forecast that the Security Software for Consumers market will grow at a CAGR of 7.5 percent over the 2010-2014 period.

The report, which focuses on Americas and EMEA indicates that the market is currently driven by the growing broadband penetration which has been resulting in increased security attacks. "With increasing acceptance of broadband, the penetration is increasing at an exponential rate. The worldwide acceptance rate of broadband was as high as 50 percent in 2010. However, with increasing acceptance of broadband the security risk also increases. Since broadband is always on connection and unlike dial-up connections, the IP address is static or changes less frequently, it opens up the attack vectors. Hence, there is an increasing need to secure the system," reports an analyst. In spite of the need, widespread piracy continues to hinder the growth of this market. However, the increasing convergence of security solutions is expected to promote market growth.
