Leading players continue to innovate and collaborate, ensuring the market's growth from 2023 to 2031.

Enhanced Security through Biometrics

One of the primary drivers of the decentralised identity market is the adoption of biometrics for digital identity verification. Biometric authentication methods, such as fingerprint recognition, facial recognition, and iris scanning, offer unparalleled security and accuracy, reducing the risk of identity theft and fraud. The increasing integration of biometric authentication in smartphones, laptops, and other devices underscores its popularity and effectiveness. Biometrics-based decentralized identity solutions provide users with a secure and convenient means of authentication.

Rising Demand for Privacy and Data Control

The growing concern about data privacy and control has fueled the demand for decentralized identity solutions. Individuals and enterprises seek to regain control over their personal data and limit the access that third parties have to their sensitive information. High-profile data breaches and privacy scandals have heightened awareness about the risks associated with centralized identity systems. Decentralized identity solutions, built on blockchain technology, empower users to manage their data more securely.

Advancements in Blockchain Technology

Blockchain technology is a fundamental driver of the decentralised identity market. The immutability, transparency, and security inherent in blockchain make it an ideal platform for decentralized identity solutions. As blockchain technology evolves, so does the potential of decentralized identity. Blockchain-based identity projects, such as SelfKey and uPort, have gained significant traction and investment. These platforms offer users the ability to create and manage their digital identities on a secure and transparent blockchain.

Interoperability Challenges

A notable restraint in the decentralised identity market is the challenge of interoperability among various decentralized identity platforms and standards. As the market grows, the lack of a unified standard could hinder widespread adoption and collaboration. Discussions within the decentralized identity community often center on the need for standardized protocols and interoperability. Without a common framework, users may find it challenging to navigate between different decentralized identity providers seamlessly.

Market Segmentation by Identity Type: Biometrics segment Dominates the Market

The decentralised identity market can be segmented by identity type into Biometrics and Non-biometrics.


In 2022, the Biometrics segment accounted for the highest revenue share in the decentralised identity market. This trend is expected to continue, with biometrics projected to maintain the highest CAGR during the forecast period from 2023 to 2031. The increasing adoption of biometric authentication in various sectors, including mobile devices, financial services, and healthcare, highlights its market dominance. Biometrics offers a highly secure and user-friendly method of identity verification.


Non-biometrics, encompassing traditional username-password combinations and other non-biometric authentication methods, also contribute significantly to the decentralised identity market. However, this segment is expected to exhibit a lower CAGR compared to biometrics. While non-biometric methods are still prevalent, their vulnerability to security breaches and phishing attacks has prompted a shift towards more secure authentication mechanisms, such as biometrics.

End-user Segmentation: Individual segment Dominates the Market

The decentralised identity market can be further segmented by end-users into Individual and Enterprises segments.

Individual Segment

In 2022, the Individual segment accounted for a significant portion of the decentralised identity market's revenue. During the forecast period from 2023 to 2031, this segment is also expected to exhibit the highest CAGR.
