Market trends and drivers

Both segments of Utimaco’s activity benefit from favorable underlying market fundamentals due to growing cyber security requirements in an increasingly digitized world. In lawful interception and data retention, the expected healthy growth is mainly driven by new telecommunication channels and network technologies. In the market for hardware security modules, demand is expected to grow at double digits thanks to accelerated digitization and the growth of Internet of Things applications.
