Cybersecurity in Insurance - Thematic Research

#artificialintelligence

Cybersecurity in Insurance - Thematic Research Summary By 2021 the global cybersecurity market is expected to be worth $1bn, up from $765m in 2017 according to GlobalData. However, the key issue is that insurance companies need "better" rather than "more" security. In this report, we look at the 12 most important cybersecurity technologies and conclude that the most important ones in terms of driving the cybersecurity industry's revenues over the next two years are network security appliances, cloud security, and artificial intelligence (AI). Our research indicates the winners in these high-growth cyber technology cycles over the next two years will be - - Unified threat management: Check Point Software, Cisco, Fortinet, IBM, Palo Alto Networks, SecureWorks, Sophos, and Symantec. Scope This report is part of our ecosystem of thematic investment research reports, supported by our "thematic engine".

China's startup ecosystem, which produced several world-leading companies, has been in the news in the recent past about the impact of the government regulations on the big technology firms. However, despite the regulatory shakeups and the COVID-19 pandemic notwithstanding, China has emerged as a powerhouse for artificial intelligence (AI) unicorns, according to Thematic Research at GlobalData, a leading data, and analytics company. GlobalData's research shows that of the total of 45 AI unicorns globally, China has the biggest share with 19 unicorns headquartered in the country. These 19 unicorns are collectively valued at $43.5bn. Priya Toppo, Analyst of Thematic Research at GlobalData, comments: "China is a leading player in AI, with a number of established companies such as Baidu, Hikvision, iFlytek, Tencent, and Alibaba. The country also has a strong AI startup ecosystem, which is evident from the large number of AI unicorns (privately held startup valued at $1bn or more)."

Machine learning is an artificial intelligence (AI) technology which allows machines to learn by using algorithms to interpret data from connected'things' to predict outcomes and learn from successes and failures. There are many other AI technologies - from image recognition to natural language processing, gesture control, context awareness and predictive APIs - but machine learning is where most of the investment community's funding has flowed in recent years. It is also the technology most likely to allow machines to ultimately surpass the intelligence levels of humans. Many companies, like Alphabet, have already become'AI-first' companies, with machine learning at their core. At the same time, many ML techniques are getting commoditized by being open sourced and pre-packaged into developer toolkits that anyone can use.

The global internet of things (IoT) market by revenue will be worth $1.1 trillion by 2024, with much of the growth coming from wearables, says GlobalData, a leading data, and analytics company. GlobalData's latest report, 'Thematic Research: Internet of Things,' explains how a COVID-19 driven new digital transformation wave will fuel higher growth across all IoT markets. The global IoT market was worth $622bn in 2020, up from $586bn in 2019, and will grow to reach $1,077bn by 2024, with a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 13% over the period, according to GlobalData forecasts. The enterprise IoT dominates the overall IoT market, generating 76% of total revenue in 2020. This dominance of the enterprise IoT will continue for the foreseeable future.
