Global Identity and Access Management (IAM) Market Analysis, Forecast to 2022

Global Identity and Access Management (IAM) Market Analysis, Forecast to 2022

The Frost & Sullivan report analyzes the global market for Identity and Access Management (IAM). The IAM market has evolved from a focus on access control and identity management to include governance and analytics. Another key component of IAM is Multifactor Authentication (MFA). IAM has grown more essential as mobility has broken down the physical perimeter that once protected corporate information and productivity systems. Enterprises must secure remote access to their systems while not adversely affecting the productivity of employees and partners working through these systems with cumbersome access and security processes. Industrial IoT is also becoming a more interconnected environment that requires stronger and more flexible IAM oversight.

As the threats to networks, systems, and users themselves grow by leaps and bounds through the actions of more sophisticated and aggressive hackers, IAM suppliers are responding to the challenge with innovative and more integrated solutions. The public nature of the threat over the last several years is driving enterprises to the IAM market. This analysis measures the size of the IAM market in revenue as well as the market share of market leaders. It also delineates the revenue generated by different regions and by individual industry verticals. Data on the revenue generated by various business tiers from small businesses to large enterprises is also provided. The adoption of cloud services has somewhat surprisingly had the biggest impact so far on large businesses rather than the small and medium-sized businesses it was expected to attract to the IAM market. Using cloud-based solutions, large businesses are able to more easily embrace a hybrid model that better supports both on-premises and cloud environments. The growth of small and medium-sized businesses will accelerate over the next three years.

Market drivers and market restraints are identified and explained, and their impact on the growth of the market is examined. IAM is at the heart of a security solution and core robust security is a primary driver. However, the IAM market is driven by two strong and independent elements. Following security, productivity of enterprise employees is the other key driver. Enterprises do not want to inhibit access to core business systems to be the price they pay for implementing more robust security. IAM that can improve both security and productivity has strong winds behind it in terms of growing demand. Governance is also a key driver of IAM as new regulations across the globe, especially in the EU, are making it painful for companies that fall short on compliance. For these reasons, Frost & Sullivan forecasts strong double-digit growth over the course of this study. However, given the weariness that massive digital transformation has left enterprises with, IAM suppliers must be cognizant of adding to the overload and make adoption as seamless and painless as possible.
