Insight by Solution Type

Cloud segment is accounted for the largest revenue in the global market. The increased rate of adoption of cloud-based identification keys is on the surging trend, owing to their features, including ease of use, reduced installation, and maintenance costs.

Moreover, cloud-based identification solutions are also more secure than on-premises which eventually keep secure data and identify when sharing the information. Thus, cloud-based digital identification solutions are majorly implemented among large enterprises and SMEs, which is expected to contribute towards high segmental growth. However, the on-premises digital identification solution segment accounts for a significant share in the overall industry. This can be acknowledged to factors, including high levels of flexibility and control compared to the cloud system, which may drive the segment growth over the forecast period.

Insight by Vertical

The BFSI segment is recorded with the largest share in 202 and is expected to maintain its dominance over the forecast period. In a digital world, there is a surge in data volume, velocity, and increased customer access to financial services from multiple platforms that act as a catalyzing factor for the segment demand worldwide. In addition, it also facilitates banks to opt for scalable, flexible, and easy-to-integrate identity capabilities, with unique identity solutions accessible “as-a-Service” delivered on-demand through private or public cloud infrastructures. Accordingly, the proliferation of data protection in the BFSI sector eventually boosted the segment demand and paved the way for industry growth.

Geographic Overview

Geographically, North America accounted for the highest share in the global industry in 2021 and is likely to dominate the industry over the coming years due to the early adoption of digital identity solutions across businesses and industry verticals for managing tasks effectively and securely.
