Identity and Access Management (IAM) Market Size, By Solution (Provisioning, Password Management, Directory Services, Advanced Authentication, Single Sign-On, Audit, Compliance and Governance), By Deployment Model (On-premise, Cloud), By Application (BFSI, IT & Telecom, Healthcare, Education, Public Sector and Utilities, Manufacturing, Retail), Industry Analysis Report, Regional Outlook (U.S., Canada, UK, Germany, France, Italy, Spain, China, India, Japan, Australia & New Zealand (ANZ), South Korea, Singapore, Brazil, Mexico, Argentina, Saudi Arabia, UAE, South Africa), Growth Potential, Competitive Market Share & Forecast, 2018 - 2024
Identity and Access Management (IAM) Market is projected to surpass USD 18.9 billion by 2024. IAM products deliver role-based access control, allowing system administrators to regulate access to networks based on the role of the employees within the organization. It majorly focuses on ensuring that the partners, employees, and customers receive secure and simple access to the applications without compromising on security. The major benefits associated with the installation of IAM systems for the enterprises include reduced data breaches, centralized access control, reduced IT cost, and improved user experience. These systems assist the organizations in keeping up with staff moving across various roles in an enterprise. As these solutions deliver secure ways to authorize, authenticate, and manage users without negotiating on usability and convenience, their usage is increasing rapidly in the IAM market.
The trend of connected devices such as BYOD is rapidly increasing, offering enhanced productivity, reduced hardware cost for organizations, and improved employee satisfaction. Moreover, increased mobile penetration, rising employee mobility software demand, and the increasing prominence of mobility service management are also driving the demand for IAM solutions. Employees, partners, and contractors are carrying personal devices to the workplace to connect with the corporate network. Around 70% of the organizations have adopted the BYOD trend, which is anticipated to rise over the forecast timeline. However, the rising adoption of the connected technology also has resulted in increased threats of cybercrimes. This necessitates the deployment of effective IAM solutions to prevent unauthorized access to the company’s data, accelerating the market growth.
The provisioning solution dominates the IAM market and held around 40.7% of the market share in 2017. This solution delivers employees, clients, and other stakeholders with enhanced IAM features to manage the provisioning and de-provisioning of various computing resources. The rising demand for reliable provisioning solutions and the increasing traction of risk mitigation and security also have a positive impact on the market growth. Provisioning solutions are adopted in diverse industrial application to support digital identity creation, validation, approval, change, termination, propagation, and communication.
The audit, compliance, and governance solution is anticipated to grow at the fastest rate with a CAGR of around 16.1% over the forecast period. The implementation of regulatory compliance by governments across various industry verticals including BFSI, healthcare, retail, and IT & telecom has enabled the organizations to adopt the audit, compliance and governance solutions. For instance, The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPPA) act was passed in 1996 to assure that the individual’s health data is protected while permitting the flow of data as per requirement to promote high-quality healthcare and protect public well-being. The non-compliance to follow these standards results in a huge penalty; hence, organizations have increased their adoption of auditing, compliance, and governance solutions.
The on-premise deployment model dominates the IAM market with a market revenue of USD 8.08 billion in 2017 anticipated to reach USD 14.6 billion by 2024. The on-premise delivers continuous and secured access to various applications throughout the enterprise. These solutions perform various tasks such as securing identity and attribute stores, identity data synchronization, external access control for applications, and user provisioning, driving their growth in the market. However, as this model is mainly suitable for large organizations, which have enterprise-wide entitlements and applications, enterprises are now shifting toward the cloud-based IAM models.
The cloud-based deployment model is projected to grow at the fastest rate due to the rising demand for cost-effective, scalable, and flexible IAM solutions. The growing trend of BYOD and various enterprise mobility solutions has also resulted in a large cloud IAM adoption rate by enterprises to manage remote access services. The enterprises also suffer through huge losses due to cyberattacks, increasing the demand for cloud-based solutions delivering enhanced IAM security. For instance, in September 2017, Nexus Group, an identity and security company partnered with Morphean, a video surveillance vendor for enabling cloud-based access control. This partnership will allow Morphean to remotely manage access control events with video along with easy management of Nexus card readers and order access cards providing customers and service providers an ease to manage, audit, and communicate with the physical access control.
The BFSI segment is growing at the fastest rate as the banks and financial institutions carry sensitive customer information, ensuring an extremely secure environment as any kind of security breach can be costly and devastating. To improve the IAM security, the BFSI industry is adopting an efficient process by integrating multi-factor authentication into their network’s user’s account. For instance, in March 2016, HSBC bank started using voice recognition and fingerprint scanning along with the standard password authentication technology to protect the online user accounts. Various steps are taken to safeguard the online transactions due to the rise in the adoption of mobile banking. Fingerprint activated payment systems are being installed in smartphones to safeguard online banking.
North America is projected to dominate the market as IAM solutions have gained importance in different sectors such as BFSI, healthcare, telecom, and utilities in this region. Furthermore, technological advancements in the IoT and cloud computing technologies followed by increased usage of smartphones are also driving the market growth. Asia Pacific is the fastest growing region in the IAM market, expected to generate a revenue of approximately USD 3.9 billion by 2024 due to the rising increase in the rate of cybercrime and emergence of SMEs in this region. Furthermore, as the industries functioning in this region are also facing increasing scrutiny regarding security measures, the demand for IAM solutions is rising at a fast pace.
The companies operating in the IAM market are investing funds to enter into strategic partnerships and collaborations and develop innovative solutions, gaining a competitive edge in the market. Some of the major vendors operating in the IAM market are Dell, Inc., ForgeRock, Gemalto, IBM Corporation, HID Global Corporation, iWelcome, Microsoft Corporation, Net IQ, Okta, Inc, Ping Identity, and SailPoint Technologies Holdings, Inc.
