MarketsandMarkets forecasts the global Business Email Compromise (BEC) market size is expected to grow from an estimated value of USD 1.1 billion in 2022 to USD 2.8 billion by 2027, at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 19.4% from 2022 to 2027. Growing incidents of BEC scams and spear-phishing attacks, huge financial losses due to BEC crimes, and stringent regulatory standards and data privacy compliances are some of the factors that are driving the market growth.
What is BEC?
According to MarketsandMarkets, BEC is an exploit in which attackers gain access to a business email account and imitates the owner’s (CEO, employees, customers, or partners) identity. This can lead to huge financial losses and also affect an organization’s reputation. BEC solutions powered by AI/ML help identify and block any email compromises in real time. Security awareness training services with simulation techniques are also an integral part to prepare and improve responsiveness toward BEC attacks.

The number of deals increased by around 50-60% relatively in the period of 2020-2021. These deals collectively include partnerships, acquisitions, collaborations, and alliances. Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, there was a sudden decline in product launches and business expansion activities. However, from 2021 onward, companies are expected to follow organic growth strategies to provide BEC solutions and services to end users, which, on the other hand, would help companies in increasing their market revenue.
