The Identity Theft Protection Services industry has experienced slow but steady growth over the past five years, driven by the economic recovery, the introduction of m-commerce and the rise of e-commerce and social media. Additionally, high-profile data breaches in recent years have raised awareness of identity theft protection and spurred greater demand for industry services. As the internet becomes increasingly important in financial transactions, and as more and more personal information comes to be stored on mobile phones, the industry is expected to continue its moderate expansion over the next five years. Over this period, however, industry operators may face more stringent regulation in response to alleged misrepresentations of their services.
Companies in this industry primarily provide software and services aimed at reducing the risk of identity theft from online or electronic media. Firms frequently use monitoring software to track unauthorized use of credit and other personal information.
This report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecasts, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
