Open job positions mostly for offensive but not defensive roles? (in EU)

I am a “classical” blue team guy, working on defensive “stuff” for _cloud_ security.
Currently checking the job market for other opportunities, in _Europe_.

Most job positions I see are for pure red team / offensive people. There are a few purple team positions that ask for both offensive and defensive skills.
But the number of pure defensive security engineering roles is extremely limited.

Is this just the way the market looks like for Cloud security? Or just a problem in Europe? Or is this just a bad time to look for a defensive role with a cloud focus?
Is the market for defensive roles changing?

Is anyone else experiencing the same right now?
