Global Market for Multifactor Authentication is Anticipated to grow at a Significant Pace i.e., USD 27.3 Billion during the Forecast Period 2025 - 2030

Published Date: Mar, 2024

The multifactor authentication market is expected to witness CAGR of 16.3% during the forecast period 2025-30. The multifactor authentication system is an authentication method that provides an extra layer of security so as to authenticate a user’s identity and provide secure transactions over the internet. It needs a security token, one-time password (OTP), and user-specific biometric verification, thus providing enhanced security surveillance and data security. The MFA system is adopted in various industry verticals like BFSI, healthcare, government, defense, travel and transport, and logistics industries. The rising number of online frauds, security breaches, cyber-attacks, and mounting stringent regulations to protect sensitive data will accelerate the growth of the global multifactor authentication market. Furthermore, the increased investment to implement MFA in supporting services, training, SMS gateway, and hardware and software tokens and rising investment in cloud technology and BYOD will further propel the growth of the multifactor authentication market.

The multifactor authentication (MFA) market refers to the industry involved in providing solutions and services for enhancing authentication security by employing multiple factors. Multifactor authentication is a security mechanism that requires users to verify their identity using two or more distinct authentication factors, such as something they know (e.g., password), something they have (e.g., mobile device), or something they are (e.g., biometric traits like fingerprint or face recognition).

The MFA market has been growing rapidly due to the increasing need for stronger security measures in various sectors, including banking, finance, healthcare, government, and enterprise. The market growth is driven by the rising incidents of cyber threats, data breaches, and identity theft, which have highlighted the limitations of traditional password-based authentication methods.

Several factors contribute to the growth of the multifactor authentication market:

Increasing Security Concerns: Organizations and individuals are becoming more aware of the vulnerabilities of single-factor authentication methods. MFA provides an additional layer of security, making it difficult for unauthorized users to gain access.

Regulatory Compliance: Government regulations and industry standards, such as the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) and General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), require organizations to implement stronger authentication measures. This drives the adoption of MFA solutions.

Mobile Device Proliferation: The widespread use of smartphones and other mobile devices has opened up new avenues for MFA implementation. Mobile-based authentication methods, such as one-time passwords (OTP) and biometric authentication, are gaining popularity.

Cloud Computing and Remote Workforce: The shift towards cloud-based services and the rise of remote workforces have increased the demand for MFA solutions to secure access to critical resources and data from anywhere.

Advancements in Biometrics: Biometric authentication technologies, such as fingerprint, facial recognition, and iris scanning, have become more reliable and accessible, driving the adoption of MFA solutions that incorporate biometric factors.

Integration with Identity and Access Management (IAM) Solutions: MFA is often integrated with IAM solutions to provide a comprehensive security framework. This integration streamlines user access management and strengthens overall security.

In June 2022, Ping Identity announced further development of the PingOne cloud platform and dynamic authentication solution at Identityiverse 2022. The PingOne cloud platform provides the entire Ping Identity portfolio from a single cloud administrator, solving personal and customer identity use cases. In addition, with dynamic authentication and attribute-based access control (ABAC), PingAuthorize allows enterprises to comply with data protection regulations, reduce fraud, and increase sensitive transactions and data. A central location is available for authentication.

The COVID-19 outbreak has led to a substantial increase in the number of BYOD devices owing to the increased work-from-home solutions, resulting in an increase in the number of devices that have access to enterprise resources. The mounting adoption of BYOD devices will lead to the adoption of multifactor authentication solutions in enterprises.
