Growing integration of biometrics in smartphones is one of the major factors driving the growth of global digital identity market growth over the forecast period. With the instant technological improvements, the number of smartphone users throughout the world has soared to a greater extent, and the world is developing more connected than ever earlier. With improvements in technology, these password security systems are easier to hack. Digital identity-based protection, such as biometric expertise and multi-factor authentication, is a better and reliable method of authentication than passwords.
For instance; only 27% of consumers used biometrics to authenticate and about 41% of smartphone owners were utilizing biometrics in 2020 and nearly 66% of smartphone holders will utilize biometrics for verification by 2024. Most smartphones have authentication alternatives, like fingerprint identification and facial detection. Many smartphone corporations are shifting towards executing these fingerprint and facial detection technology in the smartphones.
In addition, rising number of innovations in digital identity field is also supplementing the market growth. For instance, new National eID programs were launched in 2020. Nowadays, some of these programs comprise biometrics, the mainstream in the method of fingerprints. Also, France proclaimed its national eID arrangement for fall 2019 in early 2018. Germany proclaimed its citizens would be able to supply a digital form of their national ID card on their phone and custom it as a digital ID in 2020.
However, higher cost involved in deploying digital identity solutions may hamper the growth of global digital identity market. In spite of that, extensive adoption of authentication diagonally verticals is likely to offer ample opportunities for the further growth of the global digital identity solutions market.
Since last few years, digital identity has been widely adopted in every country, which has led to the widespread use of digital ID lockers in many countries that provide security for the customer's documents. Some of the macro and micro economic trends are contributing to the increasing use of digital identity solutions because of new technologies and regulations are largely supporting further transformation, pandemic-accelerated trends such as digitization of government, greater adoption by citizens, as well as growing consumer demand for privacy and trust, and more national digital ID initiatives and implementations, because of these and with some other trending examples the demand for digital identity solutions in the market has increased significantly.
The biggest role behind the growth of digital identity solutions is the government involvement of every country around the world. Every country has made citizen identity compulsory in their country which is taking huge growth in this market.
Moreover, global pandemic changed digital identity from ""nice to have"" to ""must-have"" for governments. When there was a massive spread of COVID-19 across the world, citizens did not need documents because every work was done online. Due to this, the number of online threats has increased to a great extent. And along with this, due to the method of submitting documents online, it became mandatory for every citizen to store these documents online. Due to this trend, the use of digital identity solutions has increased significantly since the time of COVID-19.
Many countries and region have also taken advantage of the technology to implement more national digital ID initiatives and implementations along with increasingly digital lives, which has led to significant growth in the digital identity solutions market.
In today's timeframe, mobile usage is increasing in a big way, identities are also becoming digital in a big way. Of course, today's nationals have entered an era where mobile usage and connectivity conquer the world. And the current situation indicates that these trends will never subside. Government policies, heavy investment by telecom operators, and reductions in subscription and phone prices have made it easier to access the Internet globally. At the same time, global smartphone penetration is hitting the roof, bringing in all the right and necessary infrastructure to successfully launch a mobile-based digital identity. Due to this, citizens are adopting digital identity in large numbers by taking advantage of such facilities. According to BrandEssence market research reference, by the end of 2021, more than 5B people will already have Internet access. Global online internet penetration has surpassed 66%. More than 92% of people access the internet through mobile devices. 55% of global internet traffic is mobile in Q1 of 2021. Mobile devices have now become the primary means of accessing the Internet for users. Mobile connections account for a large share of web traffic in mobile-first markets such as Africa and Asia. The global smartphone penetration rate will reach over 78% in 2020. This is based on an estimated 6.4 billion smartphone subscriptions worldwide and a global population of about 7.8 billion. Besides, digital identity has also emerged as a trend in the market in the era of easy access to the internet and more mobility.
The pandemic accelerated trends such as the digitization of government, and citizens were left with no choice embraced technology at levels only anticipated for five or ten years in the future. Let's take two examples, according to AGID (Agenzia per Italia Digitale), in one year, the number of digital identities issued by the Italian national scheme increased from 8 in June 2020 to 24 million in September 2021. According to Deloitte, governments have become the most trusted institutions for the first time in twenty years, able to successfully meet the challenges. Not only are more and more governments rapidly equipping citizens with reliable mobile IDs, but they are also accelerating the demonetization of public services to enhance the quality-of-service delivery. Public organizations have a more mature vision and relevant digital strategy and implement digital identity and valuable services in parallel. Those service-rich online portals offer essential tangible benefits to citizens: they can do more online, access almost all available services remotely, and are sure to save significant time. Such a virtuous circle would further drive adoption by citizens and encourage further demonetization by government agencies. In Denmark, NemID (now called MitID), the domestic digital ID scheme, now has 100% adoption, enabling the government to mandate online access to the country's public services. Of course, the scheme was first designed to be inclusive and offers a specific validation tool to the elderly.
The global pandemic transformed digital identity from a ""must have"" to a ""must have"" for governments. So, this is another way that governments are capitalizing on this moment as an opportunity for transformation.
A key challenge for public authorities over the next two years was to create a harmonious digital bond that would secure the connection between the new mobile identity and wider society. This bond is only possible through a general framework of trust built on personal data protection and security guarantees. Since 2018, those measures to increase security and prevent fraud have generally been well received by citizens. These sovereign matters are, of course, equal to excellence as wel, stronger security measures are also increasingly responding to new demands for trust in all exchanges between citizens and public authorities. Besides consider another thing the latest survey found that with the explosion of data due to the extraordinary advancement in technology and the proliferation of connected devices, citizens are increasingly worried. Users were demanding stronger data privacy processes; They want to control their data and decide what data they share and with whom. Therefore, to meet those new privacy needs, the next generation of mobile IDs has made its market debut in the form of digital ID wallets. And this way digital identity market is slowly taking over the whole world.
However, Decentralized identity schemes and verifiable credential standards from the W3C are also trying to achieve the same goal, giving citizens more control over their data. Recent months have seen an avalanche of new privacy protection regulations around the world. From Europe to Brazil (Lei Geral de Proteção de Dado came into effect on September 2020), India and China to California and Africa (South Africa's POPIA went into effect on July 1, 2020), privacy laws have been passed or are being updated. Due to this, there are indications that the demand will increase to a great extent in the coming period as well.
Faced with an increasingly challenging economic landscape, governments are inevitably looking for new sustainable, harmonious growth opportunities. As the regulatory environment takes shape, close collaboration between the financial world, central and local public authorities, and digital communications operators are supporting effective solutions and implementing best practices. Of course, the natural source of new business opportunities is not the digital identity itself, but the numerous applications that enable it. This domain is where banks and other operators are looking at the bottom-line return on investment. That is, all these aspects are moving towards digital identity.
Hence the emphasis on the adoption of new structures and regulations required to regulate related services and transactions is also helping to accelerate the digital identity solution market.
In the following years, the market will follow these initiatives. Because evidence of digital identity and the use of related services is multiplying.
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) of May 2018 for European member states represents a significant step toward data protection and privacy. It is a unique privacy framework that affects twenty-eight countries, including the UK. In its June 2021 proposal, the European Commission specifically suggested creating a digital ID wallet. According to the report (June 2021), digital identity based on digital wallets stored securely on mobile devices was identified as the primary asset for futureproofing. This new form of ID will allow the EU's 450 million residents to access public and private services. Currently, 60% of EU residents have access to trusted id schemes. In contrast, with this new digital identity framework, at least 80% of people must use a digital ID by 2030.
As Congressman Bill Foster said in June 2021: ""It's time for the United States to catch up with the rest of the developed world when it comes to digital identity."" The (US) National Strategy for Trusted Identities in Cyberspace sought a more global system of interoperable identity service providers (public and private). NIST Digital Identification Guidelines are formerly known as NIST SP 800-63-3. NIST published an official version in June 2017, an expanded version in 2020, and a new draft this summer. For the moment, several US states have taken the initiative and have launched or plan to launch digital driver's licenses (aka mobile driver's licenses) with the ability to use ID credentials online.
The California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA), voted in late May 2018, now takes effect on January 1, 2020. This is an important step for privacy rights as the state is often seen as a trendsetter in this domain. The CPRA (California Privacy Rights Act), passed into law in November 2020, is another layer that creates new rights and expands existing rights for California residents. The law is potentially a model for US (ie, federal) data privacy law. In that sense, the CCPA and CRPA have the potential to become as important as the GDPR.
In August 2017, India's Supreme Court ruled in a landmark case that privacy is a ""fundamental right"", making it clear that biometric data protection is now at the top of regulators' list in the world's largest democracy. Modi's new government has increased privacy protection laws in 2019. Personal Data Protection (PDP) legislation is being drafted with similarities between the EU's GDPR and the Californian CCPA. The bill is currently under review (December 2021).
Let's review the big ideas that have gained traction over the past few years, which have led to growth paths in the digital identity solutions market.
Several new national eID programs (not related to ID2020, including card and mobile-based schemes) have been launched or initiated. Examples include major announcements from Algeria, Belgium (Mobile ID), Cameroon, Ecuador, Jordan, Philippines (PhilSys ID), Kyrgyzstan, Italy, Iran, Japan, Senegal, Taiwan, Thailand, Turkey, Ukraine, Denmark. Netherlands, Bulgaria, Maldives, Norway, Liberia, Poland, Jamaica, Sri Lanka and Zambia. Some of these programs now include biometrics, mostly in the form of fingerprints.
Schemes such as the Gov.UK Verify initiative launched in 2016. And in August 2021, the government published a new version of its Digital Identity and Attribute Trust Framework.
Australia launched the first phase of its digital identity program in August 2017.
Germany announced in February 2021 that its citizens will be able to store a digital version of their national identity card on their phone and start using it as a digital ID (with a PIN for authentication) by autumn 2021.
Canada is moving forward with its federal digital identity plan called the Pan-Canadian Trust Framework, piloted by the Digital ID Authentication Council of Canada, a non-profit organization (DIACC). A national proof of concept project for a unified login authentication service called Sign in Canada has begun in the fall of 2018.
Aadhaar (India's national eID scheme) crossed the 1 billion user mark in 2016. By the end of August 2021, 1.3 billion Aadhaar electronic IDs had been generated (99% adults). This digital identity can be derived based on biometric and demographic data. mAadhaar is an official app available in 13 languages on Android and iOS (2019). It essentially acts as a virtual identity card.
North America is expected to dominate the global digital identity solutions market during the forecast period owing to the rising identity and verification frauds and the authority of key suppliers in the region. According to the Federal Trade Commission, customers notified losing more than $3.3 billion to fraud in 2020 from $1.8 billion in 2019. Nearly $1.2 billion of losses reported in 2019 year were due to imposter scams, while online shopping accounted for about $246 million in reported losses from consumers. The European market for digital identity solution is estimated to be the second largest during the forecast period. According to the UK Finance trade association, the total number of APP (Authorized push payment) fraud incidents found in 2020 increased by 22 percent as criminals.
