For instance, in October 2022, Prove Identity, Inc., a provider of digital identity authentication platforms, released Prove Auth, a next-generation solution for omnichannel authentication and passwordless login. The solution enables businesses to reduce their dependence on passwords and one-time passcodes (OTPs). With a simple, cost-effective, and secure solution, it empowers consumers to authenticate in all channels, including desktops, phones, and call centers.

Digital identity solutions are next-generation identity governance and administration solutions that provide a much higher level of assurance and establish a trusted identity. These solutions use cutting-edge technologies such as machine learning (ML), face-based biometrics, blockchain, and artificial intelligence (AI) to determine whether a person is who they claim to be. Identity and payments have become inextricably linked, bringing exciting new opportunities and risks to the payments industry, further increasing the need for digital identity solutions. Furthermore, increased data breaches and account takeovers have increased the use of digital identity solutions and services.

As organizational structure complexity grows, many people and devices are assigned unique identities across networks to authenticate and verify access privileges and identities. The workforce is becoming more mobile, and the Bring-Your-Own-Device (BYOD) policy encourages mobile applications. A significant increase in e-commerce and consumer demand for mobile computing drives organizations to create mobile applications that customers can use to access their products. Organizations have become more vulnerable to cyber threats due to distributed IT environments and changing scenarios, fueling demand for digital identity solutions.

The rapid emergence and advancement of technological developments propel the market demand for digital identity solutions. Furthermore, as investments in digital transformation increase, identity results have garnered increasing acceptance as they aid in secure identification and positive upgraded security, which supports industry growth. For instance, in July 2022, M2P Fintech acquired Syntizen Technologies Pvt. Ltd., a B2B digital identity-centric product company. The procurement reinforces its strategy to provide a complete platform for financial institutions, offering a comprehensive, integrated technology stack that encompasses identity and onboarding services.

Component Insights

The solutions segment led the market in 2022, accounting for over 62% share of the global revenue. Various vendors provide digital identity solutions as an integrated platform or tool that integrates with an enterprise's infrastructure. The vendors also provide hardware and services to assist organizations in implementing the required solution in their current infrastructure.

Digital identity solutions are intended to improve security, lower costs, streamline business processes, and boost customer satisfaction. Customers in retail, IT, healthcare, and financial services are incorporating digital identity solutions into their operations to save time and automate the customer onboarding process.

The services segment is predicted to foresee significant growth in the forecast years. Identity verification service is the assistance provided by vendors to assist customers in effectively using and maintaining digital identity solutions. As a result, various vendors in the digital identity solutions industry focus on providing managed services, while others outsource these services.

Aside from technical services, market participants also offer assistance with planning, designing, consulting, and support. These services assist organizations in selecting the best solution for their needs. Owing to the complexity of IT infrastructure and operating systems (OS), users require guidance; thus, the services segment is expected to grow rapidly in the coming years.

Identity Type Insights

The biometric segment led the market in 2022, accounting for over 69% of global revenue owing to their more secureness than the conventional keys (or keycards) and password systems. Furthermore, passwords were traditionally replaced by biometric authentication methods like fingerprint, facial recognition, retina or eye scan, handprint, and voice recognition as digital identity management solutions evolved.

Biometric solutions use lock-and-capture mechanisms to authenticate individuals and grant access to specific services. For instance, in November 2022, A 'photo verification' system based on face biometrics, a key component of an Australian state digital ID being developed, was pilot tested in New South Wales. The opt-in public service decentralizes selfie biometrics and other personal data security, putting it in the hands of citizens. The credentials will be saved on their mobile device, allowing them to control who sees what information about them.

The non-biometric segment is anticipated to witness significant growth in the coming years. It aids in the authorization and validation of an individual's identity to facilitate the provision of entitlement or service and to rely on various factors such as passwords, PINs, and knowledge of personally relevant information or events.

Incorporating ML and AI, and technologies into non-biometric digital identity solutions aids in the highly effective and proactive detection and remediation of unauthorized and suspicious activities and invasive access requests on an enterprise network. The non-biometric solutions segment is an important component of digital identity solutions and has experienced rapid growth in recent years.

Solution Type Insights

The authentication segment led the market in 2022, accounting for over 40% of global revenue. Identity authentication is used to verify the user's authenticity and to prevent fraudulent activities. The market for digital identity solutions has been divided into two categories based on authentication types: single-factor and multi-factor.

In single-factor authentication, only one feature is used to verify a person's identity. Passwords, fingerprints, PINs, facial, voice, iris, and vein recognition are some of the single-factor authentication solutions available in today's market. Single-factor authentication is simple and widely used in various industries, including government, consumer electronics, banking and finance, and healthcare.

Multi-factor authentication ensures the confidentiality of personal information by providing a high level of security. This is more secure than traditional one-factor usernames and passwords/PINs, which are easily guessed and forgotten. For instance, in April 2021, HID Global Corporation, a division of ASSA ABLOY, released WorkforceID Authentication, a workforce multi-factor authentication solution. The solution provides businesses with a cloud solution for organizing, issuing, and deploying digital identity credentials for physical and logical access control.

Deployment Insights

The on-premises segment led the market in 2022, accounting for over 60% of global revenue as large businesses have the necessary infrastructure for deploying their solutions on-premises. It ensures a high level of flexibility and control. The on-premises deployment mode is delivered with a one-time licensing fee and a service agreement. Large enterprises prefer on-premises deployment as it offers them control over the systems. The digital identity solutions provide comprehensive insights about clients, allowing for a more unified experience.

The cloud segment is anticipated to register a noticeable growth rate over the forecast period owing to the benefits such as ease of use and lower installation and maintenance costs. Organizations avoid costs such as infrastructure maintenance and technical staff by utilizing cloud-based digital identity solutions.

Many companies use the cloud to deploy digital identity solutions because it allows them to focus on their core competencies instead of infusing capital into security infrastructure. For instance, in April 2021, Innovatrics, an EU-based provider of multimodal biometric solutions, launched a cloud API to render its remote digital identity verification with liveness detection and selfie biometrics more accessible to businesses and developers.

Vertical Insights

The IT and Telecommunication segment led the market in 2022, accounting for over 16% of global revenue. Further, BFSI is expected to generate maximum revenue following IT and Telecom. Bank fraud committed by in-house employees and the majority of helpdesk calls relating to forgotten passwords has increased the adoption of digital identity solutions in the banking and finance sector. Customers expect banking anytime, anywhere, so BFSI firms are deploying various services, including internet banking, mobile banking, and stock trading via web and mobile applications.

Furthermore, the BFSI industry vertical is concerned about securing its customers' sensitive data, which in turn is boosting the digital identity solutions industry forward. For instance, in November 2022, Daon, Inc. announced that GoTyme Bank Corporation, a joint venture of Tyme, a new digital bank, used Daon IdentityX for digital identity capture and authentication in the GoTyme banking app. The solution will assist in lowering the barriers to setup accounts for consumers while also ensuring GoTyme Bank has precise proofing and identity verification for all prospective consumers.

The retail & e-commerce segment is likely to show a notable growth over the forecast period. The retail and e-commerce sector rapidly implements digital identity solutions that support business stability and increase competitiveness. Due to the many monetary transactions by MasterCard and Visa, it is one of the most cost-conscious verticals and the most aimed at cyberattacks.

The increasing complexities of the supply chain, channel partners, employees, and customers are also expected to force retailers to impose managed authentication services, boosting the digital identity solutions market. For instance, in April 2022, MasterCard, a global payments and technology company, collaborated with Microsoft to develop next-generation identity technology to allow more consumers to shop online safely. The enhanced identity solution is intended to improve online shopping and combat digital fraud.

Organization Size Insights

The large enterprises segment led the market in 2022, accounting for over 66% of global revenue. Large enterprises were among the first to implement digital identity solutions as they possess a large workforce and associated networking devices vulnerable to identity-related risk. Organizations with offices in different regions are compelled to provide their solution to their employees through real-time data access and are increasingly implementing digital identity solutions to boost business productivity across regions. The solution can also detect access risk and risk outliers. As a result, large enterprises are expected to adopt more digital identity solutions that adhere to various standards and regulations.

The SME segment is anticipated to register the fastest CAGR from 2023 to 2030 owing to SMEs' increasing deployment of cloud-based digital identity solutions. Digital identity solutions are becoming increasingly important for SMEs, which are frequently at high-security risk due to the lack of formal identity management policies.

Governments are also taking steps to safeguard SMEs in their respective countries. For instance, in October 2022, The Seychelles government announced the launch of the SeyID platform, which WISeKey International Holding, a global cybersecurity company, created. The project creates a new Digital Identity platform called "SeyID," linked to various national initiatives covering eGovernment, eHealth, and eTourism.

Regional Insights

North America dominated the market in 2022, accounting for over 38% share of the global revenue. Governments have taken a cautious approach to replacing the physical ID with a digital ID, frequently opting for hybrid identification credentials to balance accessibility and convenience. Since the pandemic accelerated digital transformation in banking, travel, and other industries, there has been tremendous innovation in the identity landscape to prioritize citizens and consumers who are digital natives.

Different approaches to digital identification in the U.S. are more about distinct viewpoints on the function of the state and business about identity than other technology options. For instance, whereas national ID is a concept that is accepted (and even desired) among EU citizens, most Americans reject the idea because they believe it to be an overreach of the state.

Digital Identity Solutions Market Trends by Region

Asia Pacific is likely to poses lucrative market opportunities in coming years. Asia Pacific includes major developing economies such as China, Japan, India, Singapore, and South Korea. This region's digital identity solutions industry is experiencing rapid growth due to technological advancements. Digital IDs have gained popularity on a global scale, given their potential to increase the effectiveness, functionality, scalability, and coverage of governmental programs and regulations.

For instance, in November 2022, Sterling, a background and identity solutions provider, collaborated with digital identity company Yoti Ltd to facilitate background checks and broaden their digital identity solutions. The global collaboration will broaden Sterling's digital identity capabilities in Asia Pacific and Middle East, and Africa (EMEA) and accelerate the company's vision of creating privacy-centric portable identities for candidates.
