Modeling approach / Market size:

Market sizes are determined through a combined top-down and bottom-up approach, building on a specific rationale for each market segment. As a basis for evaluating markets, we use annual financial reports of key players in the industry, Statista's primary research and surveys, and IT associations. In addition, we use relevant key market indicators and data from country-specific associations, such as GDP, internet users, and telecommunication. This data helps us estimate the market size for each country individually.


In our forecasts, we apply diverse forecasting techniques. The selection of forecasting techniques is based on the behavior of the relevant market. For example, the exponential trend smoothing method is used based on the market data characteristics. The main drivers are the GDP and its sector composition, internet penetration, the level of digitization, and the attitude toward IT security.

The data is modeled using current exchange rates. The market is updated twice a year in case market dynamics change. The impact of the COVID-19 pandemic and the Russia-Ukraine war is considered at a country-specific level.
