Multi-factor Authentication Market Insights - 2030
The global multi-factor authentication market size was valued at $10,300 million in 2020, and is projected to reach $40,000 million by 2030, registering a CAGR of 18% from 2021 to 2030. Multi-factor authentication (MFA) is an authentication method that requires users to provide two or more verification factors to gain access to a resource such as an application, online account, or a VPN. MFA is a core component of a strong identity and access management (IAM) policy. Two-factor authentication (2FA), sometimes referred to as two-step verification or dual-factor authentication is a security process in which users provide two different authentication factors to verify themselves.
In term of design, multi-factor authentication solutions are non-intrusive and have no impact on rest of an organization's digital infrastructure and digital services, which creates high secure operations. In addition, modern multi-factor authentication solutions are available to organizations in the form of APIs that can be integrated seamlessly with organization’s login pages. This flexibility and feasibility of multi-factor authentication solutions promise great opportunities for future growth of the industry.
In 2019, the global multi-factor authentication market share was dominated by password-based authentication and is expected to maintain its dominance in the upcoming years, as password authentication provides a reasonable level of security at a low cost. Rise in instances of security breaches and cyber-attacks, coupled with big increase in online frauds, are among the key factors driving the market. Password less authentication is a type of multi-factor authentication (MFA), which replaces passwords with a more secure authentication factor, such as a fingerprint or a PIN. With MFA, two or more factors are required for verification while logging in.
Within the multi-factor authentication market, password less authentication is estimated to emerge as the fastest growing segment, owing to emergence of advanced technologies such as internet of things (IoT) and AI in devices such as smartphones and tablets. Security points like fingerprint sensors and smartcards are making smooth flow of authentication between point and allowing a seamless experience. Enterprises are making use of face recognition, voice analysis, and iris recognition to authenticate and verify its employees. Furthermore, worldwide rise in applications of fingerprint recognition and face recognition in consumer electronics is predicted to propel password less multi-factor authentication industry.

Impact Of Covid-19 On Multi-factor Authentication Market
Post COVID-19, the size of the global multi-factor authentication market size is estimated to be $ 10,300 million in 2020, and is projected to reach $ 40,000 million by 2030.
With a sudden rise in cyber-based attacks, during the pandemic the demand for multi-factor authentication solution has increased, creating a higher profit margin. As per a study published by the security solutions provider F5 Labs, an 220% increase in the number of phishing attacks were reported since the first phase of lockdowns started in many countries. Such instances provoked more businesses to enhance their current security infrastructure. Furthermore, with work from home and remote working culture grew in popularity, the world witnessed a sudden surge in cyber-criminal activities that targeted many organizations and their customers. As a result, demand for better security of critical corporate assets increased, and the Multi-factor authentication market grew during the pandemic.
Top impacting factors
Factors such as increased cyber-attacks during the pandemic and supporting government policies for increase in data privacy are the major factors that drive the market growth. However, initial installation charges and inconvenient and delay within the operations is mainly restraining the market growth. Further, growing scope for internet application and flexibility of multi-factor authentication solutions is estimated to create a lucrative opportunity during the forecast period.
Increase in cyber-attacks during the COVID-19 pandemic:
Rapid adoption of remote working model. This model further has introduced new cyber-risks for organizations and businesses, which creates a positive scope for the overall market growth. Thus, with emergence of new vulnerabilities and attack points demand for multi-factor authentication systems has increase to a positive scale. For instance, in 2020 the U.S. Department of homeland security reported a 250% increase in the number of data breaches and cyber-related attacks on federal systems over the past two years. Cybercriminals are using the pandemic as a major opportunity to increase their malicious activity by exploiting the vulnerabilities of remote employees and capitalizing on public interest. These factors are driving companies to increase security spending and strengthen their security architecture. This promises a stable growth opportunity for the global multi-factor authentication market trend during the forecast period.
Support in government policies and drive for better privacy
Safety of consumer data is one of the main driving factors for growth of the multi-factor authentication market. Governmental policies such as the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) introduced by the European union strictly aim for increase in consumer data security measures. Compliance policies such as GDPR and other similar regulations increases adoption rate of multi-factor authentication solutions into their network infrastructure and user base. Moreover, additional policies such as the European Payment Service Providers Directive 2 (PSD2) and the United States California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 (CCPA) ensure that business enterprises and organizations have adequate data protection mechanisms in place to prevent the possibility of fraud, data breaches, and identity theft.
