The electronic identification market was valued at US$47.748 billion in 2020. Electronic identification has been gradually wiping legacy identification solutions out of the market. This phenomenon is anticipated to pick up more pace as we move ahead in a technology-intensive ecosystem. The legacy identification ecosystem includes paper-based identification documents that are offered by businesses or various agencies which are authorized by governments for the purpose.

Although this trend is still gaining significant traction in developing countries which still do not have the infrastructure required for developing the switch to the digital ecosystem, many developed countries are already near to a completely digital environment.

Many developing countries are also sprinting towards this modern practice, and their drift is expected to pick up speed over the projected period.

The demand for electronic identification is being driven by the increasing focus of many governments on minimizing their expenses which are constituted mainly by operations. This concern is not confined to developed economies, as both developing and underdeveloped economies also continue to feel burdened by their operational expenditures. Malaysia’s operating expenses, for instance, have been eating away more than 90% of every ringgit the government has made over the past few years. This spending is now outgrowing the pace of revenue generation by the government. As a result, the country will have to continue relying on borrowing to fund these expenditures. As these expenditure burdens are being experienced by many economies worldwide, the drift towards a digital ecosystem is gaining momentum. The integration of advanced technologies into various functions in order to streamline the overall process is one way to go in the new ecosystem.

With many functions across departments headed by governments witnessing this transformation, identification documents are also being transformed.

Reduction in the use of paper and other resources for issuing identification documents, coupled with a significant reduction in the requirement of the human workforce, is increasing the popularity of electronic identification, thus boosting market growth. The corporate sector also contributes significantly to this market growth as the incorporation of advanced technologies into business functions is increasing. BFSI is one of the major contributors to this growth, as electronic identification solutions are used for various applications across this industry. From identity management and access control to transaction management, these solutions transform the workflow in this sector, thus augmenting market growth.

The rising incidence of security breaches is pushing both government agencies and businesses toward taking strong measures in order to prevent such events. High losses associated with such breaches are one of the prime concerns for governments and business owners. Loss of customers’ trust and even higher loss of business, coupled with substantial regulatory fines and remediation costs, scale up the damage caused by security breaches. For governments, losing sensitive or classified information due to unauthorized access to a facility or system can have far-reaching consequences. The losses might not be limited to financial losses and may extend to risks to national security. According to an estimate by IBM, the global average cost of a data breach stood at US$3.92 million in 2019. Increasing the focus of these end-users towards minimizing such losses is increasing the need among them for stronger and breach-proof identification solutions, thus boosting the market growth. In order to tap the growth potential this market holds, many players have entered this market and offered solutions to end-users across all key markets. Investments by these market players in research and development are bringing about security improvements and, thus, the reliability of electronic identification solutions, increasing their adoption among end-users.

The electronic identification market has been segmented on the basis of offering, end-user, and geography. By offering, the market has been segmented into solutions and services. By the end-user, the global electronic identification market has been segmented into government and corporate.

North America holds a significant share in the global electronic identification market

Geographically, the electronic identification market is segmented as North America, South America, Europe, the Middle East and Africa (MEA), and Asia Pacific (APAC). To give a clearer view of these regional markets, these have been further segmented into countries that account for a significant market share. North America and Europe account for a fairly large market share, and market growth in these regions is expected to remain decent over the forecast period. The availability of favourable technology infrastructure in these regions is one of the major factors supporting market growth. Furthermore, since many economies in these regions are known to show early adoption of new technologies, they have the early adopter benefit and hold a fairly decent market share. The market growth in the Asia Pacific is anticipated to remain solid over the projected period. Evolving technology infrastructure in countries like India in this region is poised to add momentum to the growth of the regional market. The rapid growth of industries in this region, on account of the inflow of massive investments into various sectors, is driving the use of electronic identification among offices and other facilities, thus supporting market growth. South America, the Middle East, and Africa account for a relatively small market share, and the market growth in these regions is expected to remain good over the forecast period.
