There is a rise in demand from consumers for high-speed internet and better connectivity of devices. Small and large businesses are digitalizing to increase output and simplify their processes and workflow. Due to the rise in demand for better connectivity, governments of several countries are investing in strengthening their telecom sector. For instance, in December 2021, the US president announced an investment of US$ 1.2 trillion under the infrastructure package. A large portion of this package was used to boost the broadband infrastructure and affordability.
There is a rise in the telecom industry in the developing economies. For example, according to Invest India, PLI Schemes under Atmanirbhar Bharat Abhiyan have been introduced for encouraging the manufacturing of telecom and networking products. In addition, internet connections experienced a growth of 232% in June 2022 compared to March 2014. Thus, such growing investment by the government to boost digitalization and build robust telecommunication infrastructure fosters the growth of the telecom industry, which further generates the demand for enhanced security solutions. The network and device connection are exposed to several security threats. Therefore, several telecom industry market players adopt unified threat management solutions to safeguard the telecommunication networks which fuels the unified threat management market growth.
