Certificate Authority Market Set to Reach $282 Million by 2028, Driven by Stringent Regulatory Standards and Data Privacy Compliance

Dublin, Sept. 14, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Certificate Authority Market by Offering (Certificate Types, Services), SSL Certificate Validation Type ( Domain Validation, Organization Validation, Extended Validation), Organization Size, Vertical, and Region - Global Forecast to 2028" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.

The certificate authority market is poised for robust growth, with projections indicating an expansion from $167 million in 2023 to an estimated $282 million by 2028, achieving a remarkable CAGR of 11.0% during the forecast period.

Key factors shaping this growth trajectory include the enforcement of stringent regulatory standards and data privacy compliances. However, a notable hindrance may arise from the lack of awareness among organizations regarding the significance of SSL certificates.

BFSI: The Dominant Vertical

The BFSI (Banking, Financial Services, and Insurance) sector claims the largest share in the certificate authority market. With an ever-evolving industry landscape, BFSI institutions are broadening their service offerings to stay competitive, save costs, and enhance customer experiences.

They increasingly rely on online banking platforms and digital financial services, where certificate authorities play a pivotal role by providing SSL/TLS certificates. These certificates secure online banking transactions, encrypt sensitive data, and authenticate the legitimacy of banking websites, instilling trust and confidence in customers. This trust is crucial in maintaining a competitive edge and ensuring customer loyalty in the BFSI sector.

SMEs: A Rapidly Growing Segment

Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) registered the highest CAGR during the forecast period. The rising number of SMEs establishing an online presence through websites, e-commerce platforms, and digital services fuels the demand for SSL/TLS certificates from certificate authorities.

Often constrained by limited budgets and resources, SMEs seek cost-effective solutions, making certificate authorities' range of SSL/TLS certificate options, including DV certificates, an attractive choice for basic encryption without extensive validation requirements.
