July 07, 2023 | Information & Technology

The global parental control software market size touched USD 1.25 billion in 2023 and is predicted to reach USD 1.40 billion in 2024. The market is anticipated to touch USD 3.54 billion by 2032, recording a CAGR of 12.3% over 2024-2032.

Fortune Business Insights™ presents this information in its latest report titled Parental Control Software Market Size, Share & COVID-19 Impact Analysis, By Operating System (Windows, Android, iOS, Cross Platform/Multiplatform), By Deployment (On-premise, Cloud), By Application (Residential, Educational Institutes), and Regional Forecast, 2024-2032”.

A growing percentage of the younger population is gaining access to the internet, especially after the COVID-19 pandemic. Since the outbreak had forced schools and other educational institutions to shut down their campuses to mitigate the spread of the virus, the switch to online learning skyrocketed during this period. This scenario not only offered children more avenues to gain valuable information and expand their knowledge base, but also expose them to more online threats. These factors are expected to boost the parental control software market share during the forecast period.

Rising Demand for Online Education Platforms Boosted Product Demand During COVID-19 Pandemic

The COVID-19 pandemic had a positive effect on the parental control software market growth as more schools and colleges switched to online education platforms. According to UNESCO, from March 2020, around 1.3 billion students around the globe were not able to attend universities or schools. This scenario augmented children’s risk of being exposed to various online threats, further fueling the demand for parental control software.

Growing Access to Social Media to Boost Market Growth

The installation of various social media applications witnessed tremendous rise in recent years, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic. These platforms are predicted to be one of the most important sources of data, engagement, and communication. Moreover, an increasing percentage of children aged 5 years and above are gaining access to the internet and social media platforms. This factor has made them more prone to cybercrimes, such as cyberbullying and access to illegal websites that may contain harmful content. This factor has prompted parents to seek innovative software that can help them monitor their child’s online activities. Seeing the growing demand for these software, many companies are introducing parental control features in their applications to make their platforms safer and healthier. These factors are estimated to boost the demand for parental control software in the coming years.
