The recent growing political instability and increase in spending on infrastructure across various countries in the middle-east is one of the primary factors driving the growth of Middle East Critical Infrastructure Protection (CIP) market. CIP solutions procured by the government and the organizations are primarily used to secure infrastructure, processes and related critical information from cyber intrusions, for undisrupted and sustained productivity of utilities, energy, power grids, transportation systems and manufacturing sector. Securing the infrastructure's premises and control networks has become very important over the years, owing to the increase in trend of attacks from terrorists as well as cyber predators.

The regional market share in the report highlights the regions (Egypt, Bahrain, Iraq, Jordan, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Turkey, UAE, Pakistan and others) based on their current market share across energy and power, transportation and sensitive infrastructure of the Middle East Critical Infrastructure Protection (CIP) market. The information presented illustrates the significant differences in the position of the Middle Eastern countries in terms of their market size, exports and population. 

Middle East accounts for nearly 35% of the world oil exports. Saudi Arabia, Iraq and Egypt are the leading oil and gas producing nations in the Middle East region. Oil production in most of the countries is likely to remain stable in the coming years. Most of the Middle East countries are highly dependent on oil and gas exports and hence share a similar market trend. They are expected to invest huge amounts across upstream activities in oil and gas and energy sector. GCC countries are also investing enormous amounts in infrastructure to support economic diversification. For example, increase in the airport capacity, setting up of new railway lines across the six nations. Existing airports are also being expanded in Bahrain, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia and Abu Dhabi and Oman.

Middle East energy (oil and gas) and transportation sector are highly targeted to such attacks because of the increasing levels of dependence on the information communication technologies or the information infrastructure across these sectors. Middle East has also deployed Critical Infrastructure Protection (CIP) security technologies across a wide portfolio of applications across manufacturing industry, sensitive infrastructures such as stadiums, government facilities, manufacturing, banking facilities, historical monuments, holy places and defense establishments.
