Cyberwarfare is the current single greatest emerging threat to national security. In 2010, nations worldwide placed cyberwar at the forefront of their defense planning, and provision of government cyber solutions is the single greatest growth market in the defense and security sector. Based on Visiongain's research, global spending in 2011 on cyberwarfare will reach $12.5bn.

This authoritative Visiongain defense report analyses the rapidly growing cyberwarfare market, exploring in detail its potential from 2011-2021. This analytical report examines current, future and potential contract and market prospects for current and new entrants into the uniquely flourishing cyberwarfare market.

Events in 2010 such as the discovery of the Stuxnet virus have left little doubt as to the potential implications of nations failing to develop adequate cyberwarfare capabilities. Cyberwarfare is no longer seen as an aside to conventional defense but as a fourth area of operations alongside air, land and sea. As cyberspace revolutionizes the way nations see their defense, a whole new market for defense sales is rapidly growing. As many nations seek to reduce overall defense expenditures, understanding this complex and vibrant new cyberwarfare market will be vital for companies seeking to grow in the defense sector.

How much do individual countries plan to spend on cyberwarfare between 2011 and 2021? Where are the growth opportunities over the next decade? How is cyberwarfare changing defense planning around the world? Which products and companies are leading the way in cyberwarfare? These critical questions and many more can be answered by Visiongain's in-depth research presented in this report.
