Based on specific segments, the report points out that infrastructure and protocol providers will be among the biggest gainers hitting a valuation of $307 million.
“In the global Infrastructure & Protocol Providers segment, USA, Canada, Japan, China, and Europe will drive the 25% CAGR estimated for this segment. These regional markets accounting for a combined market size of US$63.3 Million will reach a projected size of US$301.3 Million by the close of the analysis period,” the report said.

However, factors like the lack of consumer awareness and concerns over data privacy are considered as barriers to the sector hitting its potential.
