Published: 10 Nov 2011

The total global SSL market, while growing in certificates issued, is going through a slowdown in revenue growth. Unit shipments growth continues to stay strong, while revenue growth within the next several years is seen to be decreasing or stay relatively flat. This is attributed to heavy price erosion on the low-end of the market. Much debate has been around whether domain validated certificates have watered down the market.
