Our brand new defence report -- Cyberwarfare Market 2010-2020 -- assesses the considerable business opportunities exhibited by one of the defence industry's fastest-growing markets. Our market study examines the leading cyber nations and analyses the range of factors that are driving strong global sales growth.

Our analysis has concluded that worldwide spending on cyberwarfare by governments and armed forces in 2009 totalled $8.12bn. We analyse the combination of drivers and restraints that are resulting in increasing sales around the world. We also examine the most promising areas of technological development that are likely to have a profound effect on the cyber security strategy of the US and other leading cyber nations over our forecast period.

We examine the commercial prospects for companies involved in supplying cyber tools and network-security products and services in the cyberwarfare marketplace. This analytical report defines the current state of the cyberwarfare market and discusses its potential for growth from 2010 onwards, with detailed market forecasting carried out at both global and national levels.

Recent events have demonstrated the potential of cyberwarfare and this is driving strong growth in cyber security. Estonia came under cyber attack in 2007 at the time of a political dispute with Russia. The internet sites of Estonian banks, companies, government ministries, newspapers and political parties were targeted by distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attacks. A year later, Georgian web pages were attacked by civilians as Russia carried out real-world military strikes during the South Ossetia War. During 2009, serious cyber attacks continued to occur, with attacks on the institutions of countries including South Korea and the US.

To what extent are increasingly frequent cyber attacks set to affect network-security budgets in the future? How much do individual countries plan to spend on both strengthening their computer defences and developing offensive cyber weapons for their armed forces? In which regions are the most significant growth opportunities in the cyberwarfare market between 2010 and 2020?

We answer these critical questions and many more with the in-depth analyses presented in this report.
