Role-based Access Control Market Research, 2032
The global role-based access control market was valued at $8.3 billion in 2022, and is projected to reach $24.3 billion by 2032, growing at a CAGR of 11.8% from 2023 to 2032.
Role-based access control (RBAC) is a security approach that authorizes and restricts system access to users based on their roles within an organization. This allows users to access the data and applications needed to fulfill their job requirements and minimizes the risk of unauthorized employees accessing sensitive information or performing unauthorized tasks. In addition to restricting access, RBAC can refine the way a user interacts with data permitting read-only or read/write access to certain roles, thus limiting a user’s ability to execute commands or delete information. Furthermore, an effective system of user access control is essential for large organizations or companies that manage a large number of contractors, vendors, and even customers. For these organizations, RBAC will protect critical data, improve operational efficiency, and help certify regulatory compliance. Such factors are expected to provide lucrative growth opportunities for the market during the forecast period.
Moreover, the emerging role-based access control models are adopted by various industries such as healthcare, IT, retail, and other sectors, to fulfill the evolving challenges in businesses. RBAC provides fine-grained control, offering a simple, manageable approach to access management that is less error-prone than individually assigning permissions.
Factors such as growth in digitalization and increase in adoption of bring your own device (BYOD) are positively impacting the growth of the market. In addition, an increase in adoption of role-based access control model across businesses to enhance productivity is expected to fuel the growth of the market for the future. Furthermore, an increase in investments in advanced technologies such as AI, ML, cloud-based services and IoT is expected to provide lucrative growth opportunities for the market during the forecast period. Moreover, role-based access control (RBAC) solutions help reduce costs over the entire lifecycle and create numerous opportunities for the market growth in the upcoming years. However, inaccessible data security, and lack of skills, hamper the growth of the market.

COVID-19 Impact Analysis
The effects of the COVID-19 pandemic on the global economy boosted the growth of the role-based access control market owing to increase in trend of work from home model that compelled employers to use role-based access systems to keep corporate data and network safe. The market witnessed a significant upturn, owing to the continued surge in demand for wireless systems and security systems, specifically in the information and communication sector.
In addition, post-COVID-19 situation, companies also focused on emerging technologies such as cloud computing technology, internet of things, and machine learning-based solutions, among others, to provide role-based security that assigns permissions to end-users based on their role within the organization. As a result, companies enhanced their role-based access control services to strengthen their position in the market. For instance, in April 2022, Amazon Web Services Inc's platform Amazon Redshift enhanced its role-based access control service and supports role-based access control that helps to simplify the management of security privileges in Amazon Redshift. The role-based access control enhanced feature includes control end user access to data at a broad or granular level based on their job role/permission rights and level of data sensitivity.
Moreover, the widespread adoption of role-based access control increased in businesses and warehouses during the pandemic, where access permissions are determined according to the roles the users have within the warehouse. As a result, companies enhanced and upgraded their role-based access control services to strengthen their position in the market. For instance, in March 2023, Amazon Web Services Inc's platform Amazon Redshift upgraded its role-based access control that supports up to 200K tables for Redshift Serverless and for data warehouse clusters. This feature is intended for customers with workloads that require a large number of tables to run with Amazon Redshift without having to split the tables across multiple warehouses. Such factors have propelled the growth of role-based access control market forecast.
- In February 2023: ForgeRock enhanced its role-based access control and solutions that support authorization policies from simple, coarse-grained rules to highly advanced, fine-grained entitlements. Organizations can ensure that just the right amount of access control is given to each consumer and workforce.
- In January 2023: Microsoft Corporation's 365 Defender role-based access control model extended detection and response solution enhanced its services for security admins to centrally manage privileges across domains. It offers a unified and granular cross-services access permission model to help the security operations center increase productivity across various Microsoft defender products.
- In July 2022: Oracle Corporation and Microsoft Corporation collaborated for the enhancement of role-based access control service and also launched Oracle database service for Microsoft Azure. With this new offering, Microsoft Azure customers can easily provide, access, and monitor enterprise-grade Oracle database services in Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) with familiar experience.
- In March 2022: Oracle created a new form of free Solaris that provides enhanced role-based access control service. The new cut of the OS is called a common build environment (CBE). The free offering is aimed at open-source software developers, or non-production personal use, and is offered under Oracle's early adopter license.
Top Impacting Factors
Increase in adoption of remote work policy:
Remote work has already gained substantial popularity among various enterprises but with emergence of the COVID-19 pandemic, many enterprises were forced to switch to work-from-home mechanism. This mechanism is helping prevent large-scale transmission of viruses to a considerable extent. Furthermore, a large number of companies have many employees working from home. The threat of data breaches has increased, owing to remote work mechanisms. Hence, to overcome these problems, many enterprises are adopting RBAC solutions to tackle such problems, which eventually boosts the growth prospects.
Furthermore, enterprises are continuously involved in product innovation processes. For instance, in March 2021, Cisco Systems Inc., upgraded its intent-based networking services to help communication service providers and web scale companies around the world to connect, secure and automate their networks to deliver a stronger, more accessible internet to everyone, everywhere, regardless of geographic limitations. Such enhancements further propel the growth of the market during the forecast period.
Leveraging integrations for smart automation:
Automation is one of the most under-utilized access control tech trends. While integrated systems were popular access control technology trends in recent years, new developments and access control tech trends have opened the door to automating operations for greater efficiency. By connecting what used to be disparate building systems such as access control, parking management, room scheduling, visitor management and tenant experience apps, automations streamline processes to make operations more efficient. Instead of logging into and configuring different building systems, integration allows building managers to control all interface. Integrated building management systems not only creates better workplace experiences, but it can also increase ROI across an entire enterprise. For instance, it is also expected to see more organizations take advantage of artificial intelligence for integrated security. AI-enhanced access control and video technology can help security personnel identify potential threats faster and with better accuracy. By helping teams, AI-powered security technology can reduce human error, and improve overall experiences. In addition, these role-based access control market trends allow teams to manage a greater number of users with less drain on resources.
