Multi-Factor Authentication Market worth over $20bn by 2027

  • Published Date: August 23, 2021

Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) Market size is set to surpass USD 20 billion by 2027, according to a new research report by Global Market Insights Inc.

The market growth is attributed to the increasing government guidelines for secure internet-banking services and for safeguarding regulated financial entities such as scheduled & commercial banks from phishing attacks. MFA solutions help banking, trading, and insurance-based enterprises to provide strong authentication procedures to ensure a secure remote access for mobile users.

Increasing deployment of MFA services for user verification across various sectors is fueling segment growth

The service segment in the multi-factor authentication market is expected to witness 15% growth rate through 2027 led by the rising deployment of MFA services for user verification. MFA services help different operating platforms to secure consumer privacy and prohibit cyber thieves from hampering privacy by minimizing the risk of an account being compromised even if the basic login credentials such as passwords are stolen. The MFA service deploys a security layer to gain access to sensitive data, protect systems and simplify log-in process, helping enterprises to counter cyberattacks.

Growing market demand for fingerprint and facial recognition-based authentication solution is fostering the segment expansion

Three-factor authentication segment accounted for 20% of the multi-factor authentication market share in 2020 impelled by the increasing need to deploy hardware-based authentication methods such as biometric, user’s voice, hand configuration, and retina scan across multiple business sectors. Three-factor authentication is the use of identity-confirming credentials from three different authentication factors such as the knowledge, possession, and inherence. It improves security to a great extent, prohibiting attackers from accessing the users’ account without having access to all the three elements involved in a three-factor authentication process for an additional secure log-in.
