The global antivirus software package market is expected to grow at a CAGR of around 9% during 2021-2026. Keeping in mind the uncertainties of COVID-19, we are continuously tracking and evaluating the direct as well as the indirect influence of the pandemic on different end use sectors.

Antivirus software is a program that protects a computer against malware and cybercriminals. It guards against malicious browser helper objects (BHO), browser hijackers, ransomware, keyloggers, backdoors, rootkits, Trojan horses, worms, malicious layered service providers (LSPs), fraud tools, adware and spyware. Presently, several companies are providing antivirus software packages that scan faster, reduce space consumption, maintain a robust threat library and store malware definitions on the cloud.
The rising dependence on smartphones for conducting digital transactions is increasing the risk of cyber threats. This represents one of the key factors escalating the demand for antivirus software packages to protect against data and security breaches. Apart from this, significant utilization of online banking applications is increasing the installation of antivirus software packages in the banking, financial services and insurance (BFSI) sector to prevent fraudulent activities and ensure secure payment. Moreover, cloud-based antivirus software packages are finding applications in small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) as they are convenient and cost-effective. Furthermore, the key players are providing antivirus software packages with real-time malware scanning. They are also offering additional protection against malicious Uniform Resource Locator (URL), scam and phishing attacks, social engineering techniques, advanced persistent threat (APT) and botnet distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attacks. Besides this, the growing usage of the internet and the growing e-commerce sector on account of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) outbreak and consequent lockdowns imposed by governing agencies are influencing the market positively.
