International State of Safety Tech

“Safety Tech” refers to the class of technologies or solutions designed to facilitate safer online experiences and protect users from harmful content, contact or conduct.

In 2023, Paladin Capital Group released its second report on the state of the Safety Tech industry, building on its 2022 report which found evidence of an emerging billion-dollar US market. This updated report analyzed the market with an assessment across multiple countries, governments, and sectors.

The report—completed by Paladin Capital Group, PUBLIC’s Online Safety team, with the support of Perspective Economics and leading cyberpsychologist and Paladin’s Chief Scientist Safety Tech, Dr. Mary Aiken—found that the international Safety Tech market is experiencing rapid year-to-year growth. In the past three years alone, Safety Tech firms have raised $4.8 billion. That is nearly triple the amount raised between 2011 and 2020.
