Parental control software market to cross $1 billion in 2013: ABI Research

The global parental control software market will be worth $1.04 billion in 2013, according to ABI Research.

The market will be driven primarily by parental spending.

The other growth drivers include educational institutions, such as schools and public libraries, and information and communication service providers will weigh in as well.

Products and services include filtering, blocking, monitoring, data collection, surveillance, and notification technologies.

“While advanced digital education for children remains deficient, the demand for control and blocking solutions remains high, and is creating a highly fragmented, ad-hoc yet competitive market for parental control vendors,” said Michela Menting, senior analyst at ABI Research.
