Industry Overview

The forecasted period from 2025 to 2030 is expected to witness significant growth in the global multifactor authentication (MFA) market. With a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 16.3%, the market is projected to expand from USD 12.2 billion in 2023 to USD 27.3 billion by 2030.

Multifactor Authentication Market

The multifactor authentication method is an advanced security system that entails users providing two or more validation factors to access resources like Components, online accounts, and Virtual Private Networks (VPN). The increased number of verification processes will decrease the probability of security breaches like hacking and data theft and will accelerate the demand for MFA systems. The MFA system comprises logical, biometric, and physical procedures to pass the security system. Multifactor authentication is gaining prominence as it provides a high degree of security and various models of multi-factor authentication are adopted in various industry verticals like BFSI, government, immigration and travel, commercial security, electronics, and healthcare.

Market Segmentation

Insight by Model Type

The global multifactor authentication (MFA) market is segmented by its model types into two-factor authentication, multifactor with three-factor authentication, multifactor with four-factor authentication, and multifactor with five-factor authentication segments. The two-factor authentication is further divided into a smart card with a pin, a smart card with biometric technology, biometric technology with a pin, two-factor biometric technology, and a one-time password with the pin. The multifactor with three-factor authentication is further segmented into a smart card with pin and biometric technology, a smart card with two-factor biometric technology, a pin with two-factor biometric technologies, and three-factor biometric technology.  Out of these segments and subsegments, the two-factor authentication segment will dominate the market due to higher adoption and ability to authenticate the identification of users digitally using different factors such as possession-based factors, knowledge-based factors, and inherence-based factors. On the other hand, the multifactor with five-factor authentication segment will be the fastest growing segment during the forecast period due to its high level of security and higher application in government agencies such as homeland security services, safeguarding access to top-secret files and national data, and technology in national research centers.

Insight by Component

The global multifactor authentication (MFA) market is also divided by its components into solutions, hardware, and services. Out of these segments, the service segment will dominate the market during the forecast period due to its growing demand and adoption of MFA solutions that need proper deployment, execution, and maintenance. Proper functioning of the MFA solutions results in higher flexibility in operations improvement in data security and compliance.

Insight by Authentication Type

According to the authentication type, the global multifactor authentication (MFA) market is divided into password authentication and passwordless authentication. Out of these two segments, the password authentication segment is expected to grow and contribute more to the market share during the forecast period, as it is a low-cost solution that offers significantly good security. However, the password-less authentication segment will grow at a faster rate due to tech developments and higher implementation of sophisticated technologies like AI and IoT in electronic devices like tablets and smartphones. It is also attributed to the growing adoption of fingerprint and face recognition techniques.

Insight by Industry Vertical

Industry verticals split the global multifactor authentication (MFA) market into BFSI, government, travel and immigration, military and defense, commercial security, IT, telecommunication, healthcare, media and entertainment, education, retail, and eCommerce segments. Out of all these segments, the BFSI industry sector is expected to dominate the market due to higher security requirements to protect the large number of sensitive data they handle. Typically, these solutions help them meet strict government regulations such as PSD2 and PCI DSS to protect customer data.
