Forecast Summary

  • Spending on digital identity verification by businesses will reach $16.7 billion in 2026, from $9.4 billion in 2021. This 77% growth will be fuelled by the rapidly growing need to digitally onboard users, which has accelerated during the pandemic.
  • While the pandemic accelerated digital transformation, many industries had already been increasing digitisation; reflecting shifting customer appetites and opportunities for operational efficiency. Seamless digital onboarding is the minimum requirement in the post-pandemic environment, with user expectations demanding processes that are both low friction and high security; necessitating AI use for ongoing, behavioural analytics.
  • Banking and financial services will account for almost 62% of digital identity verification spend by businesses by 2026. This importance reflects how critical digital verification is in helping banks to meet severe regulatory requirements in a complex digital environment.
  • The global volume of identity verification checks will exceed 92 billion in 2026, from 45 billion in 2021. While banking & financial services are major drivers of this growth, the broadening of identity verification into areas including remote onboarding for mobile network operators or for digital gambling will create significant opportunities for vendors over the next five years.
