By type, the market segments include application to person (A2P) and person to application (P2A). The A2P segment is estimated to grow the most during the forecast period of 2016-2023.

However, it has a specific time frame for any transaction to take place. A2P SMS have numerous implementations, like one-time passwords (OTP) verifications, alerts, and promotional messages.

Organization-based segmentation of the SMS firewall market comprises small and medium scale enterprises (SME) and large-scale enterprises. Several SMEs are adopting cloud-based SMS solutions, due to its cost-effectiveness and a highly flexible structure boosting further market growth.

By end-user, the SMS firewall market is segmented into BFSI, retail & wholesale, media & entertainment, manufacturing, government, telecom & IT, healthcare, industrial, and education. The telecom & IT sector is expected to hold a significant market share, owing to their widespread use of cloud-based SMS firewalls. The industrial sectors are showing rapid growth as well and are probable to register a robust CAGR over the forecast period.

Region-wise segmentation for SMS Firewall Market has been done into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific (APAC), and Rest-of-the-World (RoW).

The U.S. is anticipated to spearhead the country-specific market for SMS firewall solutions in North America as various aggregators and MNOs are already employing SMS firewalls extensively. Therefore, the market is likely to receive a significant boost from North America. The sale is expected to further aggravate with the implementation of non-stringent laws by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC).

The APAC is probable to register the highest CAGR during the years 2017-2023. Various mobile operators are instigating SMS firewalls to eradicate numerous malpractices.

Hence, vigorous market competition is projected to progress with slimmer chances of price wars.
