Market Size & Trends

The global 3D secure payment authentication market size was estimated at USD 1.10 billion in 2022 and is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 12.7% from 2023 to 2030. Increasing Card-Not-Present (CNP) frauds across the world and growing online & e-commerce shopping among consumers are major drivers behind the growth of the global market. In addition, advancements in 3D secure (3DS) payment authentication technology to enhance customer experience are further propelling the market growth. Robust authentication solutions are becoming of paramount importance as cyber threats are evolving and getting more sophisticated. Technological advancements have led to a highly competitive market as the population is getting attracted to digital technologies.

U.S. 3D Secure Payment Authentication market size and growth rate, 2023 - 2030

In the rapidly evolving landscape of the market, the integration of advanced technologies, such as Machine Learning (ML) and Artificial Intelligence (AI), has emerged as a key trend. These advanced technologies strengthen the security of online transactions by continuously assessing and examining user behavior and transaction data in real time. 3D secure solutions combined with AI and ML systems adapt to evolving fraud tactics, promptly identifying irregularities and potential security risks.

The global market is further experiencing growth due to the advancement of biometric authentication techniques, such as fingerprint recognition, facial recognition, and iris scanning. These biometric methods enhance the security of online transactions by confirming distinctive physical characteristics, simultaneously enhancing both security measures and user convenience. This has a substantial impact on the security environment and user interactions. Thus, the rapid adoption of biometric authentication technology in 3D secure payment authentication solutions is driving the growth of the market.

The major restraining factor associated with 3D secure payment authentication is its implementation costs. Merchants can anticipate transaction-related fees when utilizing 3D secure payment authentication. However, as the market for 3D secure payment authentication continues to evolve, finding cost-effective and scalable solutions would be crucial to overcoming the high initial installation costs, thereby fostering wider adoption of 3D secure payment solutions across various industries and industry verticals.

Component Insights

The merchant plug-in segment dominated the market in 2022 and accounted for a share of more than 39.0% of the global revenue. Merchant plug-in is one of the most important elements that perform 3D secure payment authentication and verification of credit and debit cards, thereby expected to grow over the forecast period. For instance, GPayments Pty Ltd. offers a 3D secure merchant plug-in under its ActiveMerchant offering. Similarly, Total System Services LLC also provides Payment Gateway & Merchant Plug-In as a solution to acquirers.

The access control server segment is anticipated to witness significant growth over the forecast period. The growth of this segment can be projected due to factors, such as the increase in the need for identity verification while processing digital transactions owing to the rise in identity fraud. Furthermore, the access control server software module adds an extra level of security to credit card transactions by enabling cardholders to validate their identity using a personally determined password. The solution is offered by several market players, including AsiaPay Technology, Worldline, and GPayments Pty Ltd., among others.

Application Insights

The banks segment reported a maximum revenue share of over 59.0% in 2022. The segment’s growth can be attributed to the increasing digitalization across the banking industry. In September 2022, Bankrate, LLC, mentioned that around 65.3% of the U.S. population uses digital banking services. Thus, the higher the use of digital banking and online card transactions, the greater the need for fraud prevention in the banking sector. Furthermore, 3D secure payment authentication enables banks to view customers’ transaction history and behavioral history and provides information about the users’ devices. Thus, these aforementioned factors are expected to fuel the segment’s growth over the forecast period.

Global 3D Secure Payment Authentication market share and size, 2022

The merchants & payment gateway segment is anticipated to witness significant growth over the forecast period. The increasing popularity of 3D secure payment authentication across the globe is anticipated to drive the segment’s growth over the forecast period. Furthermore, the development of 3D secure technology by upgrading it to 3D secure 2.0 has resulted in decreasing cart abandonment rates. Thus, such advancements and acceptance of 3D secure for fraud prevention are anticipated to drive the growth of the segment.

Regional Insights

North America dominated the market in 2022 and accounted for a share of over 28.0% of the global revenue. The growth of the regional market can be attributed to the rise in CNP frauds across North America. Merchants across the U.S. and Canada are increasingly adopting 3D secure payment authentication to prevent CNP frauds across the region. For instance, in 2021, the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) received approximately 390,000 reports associated with credit card fraud, thereby making it one of the prevalent forms of fraud in the U.S. Furthermore, the dominance of the market players offering 3DS solutions across the region is also a major factor responsible for the growth of the market in North America.

3D Secure Payment Authentication Market Trends, by Region, 2023 - 2030

Asia Pacific is expected to witness the fastest growth over the forecast period. The growing population and increasing use of online shopping platforms are expected to fuel the growth of the regional market. As more consumers shop online, there is a greater need for secure payment authentication methods to prevent fraud, which has propelled the adoption of 3D payment authentication solutions. Furthermore, prominent market players, such as Visa Inc., have issued guidelines for rolling out EMV 3DS for the Asia Pacific region.

Key Companies & Market Share Insights

The market players are continuously working towards new product development and up-gradation of their existing product portfolio.
