The audit, compliance, and governance solution are rising at the fastest rate and is projected to grow at a CAGR of 16.1% over the forecast period. The increasing concerns regarding data breach and theft of sensitive enterprise information are the major factors driving the identity and access management market revenue. Furthermore, the rapid technological developments in cloud computing, IoT, and big data & its implementation across enterprise compliance and governance also resulted in the greater adoption of the audit, compliance, and governance solutions.

Any non-compliance to follow these standards results in huge penalties and hence organizations have increased their adoption of auditing, compliance, and governance solutions.

The advanced authentication segment held around 23.7% of the identity and access management market share in 2017, mainly due to factors such as increase in cybercriminal activities, rising security threats, BYOD policy in enterprises, and supportive government regulations. Increased usage of advanced authentication in various verticals, mainly BFSI, IT & telecom, and healthcare, also contributes to the identity and access management market growth. Furthermore, the centralized policy engine in these systems assists in providing flexibility and consistency in authentication, fueling their market demand. 


The cloud-based IAM provides the organizations with a single password to log-in into enterprise extensive systems and applications on which the employee is provisioned to log-in. It connects the enterprises to the cloud-based applications while offering required security services to various industry verticals including healthcare, BFSI, IT & telecom, retail, and public utilities. They manage security by permitting user access with a multi-factor authentication, user provision, and access management services, thereby safeguarding the important customer financial and other related corporate data. Due to this, the cloud-based IAM model is largely adopted by SMEs, large organizations, and the government sector. Moreover, as these cloud-based models provide various benefits such as reduced costs, economies of scale, simplified management, and no hardware deployment, their adoption is rising as compared to the traditional on-premise deployment model.

The BFSI sector is rising at the fastest rate in the identity and access management market and is projected to grow at a CAGR of 13.1% over the forecast timespan. These solutions play a vital role in creating secured and reliable IT security in the banking sector.

For instance, in 2014, the JPMorgan Chase banks suffered a data breach that leaked around 7 million business accounts and 76 million personal contacts causing huge losses to the bank. Hence, it is imperative for the banks to protect their networks with enhanced authentication measures. One of the drivers that is mainly important for the financial sector is compliance. Regulatory departments, such as the Australian Prudential Regulation Authority (APRA) and U.S. Security and Exchange Commission (SEC), have set strict regulations, enforcing the financial institutions to comply with the security requirements. Hence, major financial institutions have made substantial investments in implementing the enhanced IAM solutions, driving the identity and access management market value.
