The global data governance market size was valued at USD 3.66 billion in 2023. The market is projected to grow from USD 4.44 billion in 2024 to USD 19.86 billion by 2032, exhibiting a CAGR of 20.6% during the forecast period.

Managing data has become an essential aspect for businesses and individuals in the digital world. Organizations have started various programs to extract value from the data they collect so that the data is used for better decision making. Improving data quality is the leading benefit that organizations receive from data governance programs. Organizations that invest in governance solutions are realizing the significance of the added value from their programs, starting with progress toward increasing data quality and trust.

The volume of data is expected to reach 180 zettabytes by 2025, which is 3x more than that generated in 2020. As the volume of data increases, the demand for data governance also increases. The COVID-19 pandemic also played a significant role in the increased data usage. Enterprises in various industries, especially telecommunication companies across various countries, witnessed a surge in data usage as the governments imposed lockdowns. Also, due to the pandemic, a huge number of employees started working from home by connecting remotely. This increased the demand for data-related governance solutions for managing the data efficiently.

According to a survey by Komprise, around 68% of enterprises spend nearly 30% of their IT budget on data storage, management, and protection. Businesses are applying a governance framework to define the management of data right from collection to deletion, and help maximize the value and minimize the risk. Moreover, the market growth is driven by the growing integration of Artificial Intelligence in data governance solutions. For instance, in November 2023, Privacera declared that Privacera AI Governance (PAIG), a comprehensive AI data governance solution, now incorporates Amazon Web Services for Foundation Models (FMs) on security that are used for Generative Artificial Intelligence.

Also, according to the 2024 State of Data Security Report by Immuta, around 88% of data leaders stated that data security is expected to become an even higher priority by 2025, ahead of AI. While AI is trending among data professionals across every sector, security, trust, and compliance are still ranking in important organizational priorities.

Data Governance Market Trends

Emergence of Data Democratization is Driving Market Growth

Data democratization is gaining popularity as data consumption has surged among nontechnical users. According to industry experts, the demand for data will grow in the next three years among nontechnical users. As data democratization is gaining popularity, the demand for governance is increasing for data security, privacy, and compliance requirements. Data democratization is important to businesses as it ensures an effective and efficient method of providing data to all users, regardless of technical expertise. This eliminates the frustration of requesting access, sorting information, or contacting IT help.

Data governance has a built-in nature to control access to data. Data democratization aims to offer more access to many data users across the organization. Organizations need to review their governance framework so that it is associated with democratization but does not overprovision. It is crucial throughout the entire process of democratizing data, from collecting, accessing, storing, and interpreting data. The solution acts as an enabler and guide for data democratization. Therefore, the emergence of data democratization is driving the market growth.

For instance, in May 2023, Informatica launched expanded data governance, data engineering, and MDM capabilities in its data management cloud platform and improved the system’s AI engine with GenAI functionality. The company’s CLAIRE AI engine simplifies how enterprises manage, process, and analyze data, fostering greater data democratization with extended self-service capabilities.

Data Governance Market Growth Factors

Increase in Amount of Big Data to Fuel Demand for Data Governance Solutions

The market is experiencing a notable surge primarily due to a remarkable increase in the volume of big data due to the rapid digitization of businesses and the global economy. With the shift toward digital operations, organizations are generating and collecting vast amounts of data, including customer information, financial transactions, operational metrics, and others. In particular, industries, such as e-commerce, entertainment, finance, healthcare, and manufacturing are witnessing an explosion in data production. For instance, according to Zippia, in 2022, the amount of data generated and stored reached 94 zettabytes, indicating a significant surge in data creation and consumption since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic. This growth can be attributed to the increased remote work and greater home entertainment use during this period. The growing importance of data analytics for gaining insights, optimizing operations, and making informed decisions has led to a substantial increase in the volume of data collected, thereby boosting the demand for governance solutions. For instance, in December 2022, the Institute of Big Data Governance (iBDG) and Hong Kong Science and Technology Parks Corporation (HKSTP) partnered to drive cross-industry big data governance in Hong Kong. iBDG (non-profit platform) aimed to develop Hong Kong as an international data hub and accelerate good self-governance for the big data industry.

Moreover, the ever-increasing online presence of individuals, extensive use of social media platforms, and expansion of mobile devices have contributed to the surge in data. Individuals' digital footprint and interactions in the virtual world result in massive data streams, including text, images, videos, and other user-generated data, highlighting the importance of adopting advanced governance solutions. In response to this big data surge, businesses are seeking advanced governance solutions to securely and efficiently manage and analyze this information.

As companies strive to derive insights and create value from big data, the demand for governance solutions is expected to remain robust.


Changing Format of Regulatory Policies and Data Address Validation & Lack of Awareness to Hamper Market Growth

The regulatory policies are continuously evolving and organizations are navigating through a maze of regulations, including HIPAA, GDPR, and more. The challenge lies in understanding and adhering to these regulations as data privacy, quality, and complexity of regulatory policies leads to confusion, potential breaches, and legal liabilities, further hindering the market growth.

Furthermore, a fundamental challenge is a lack of awareness about the governance solutions that restricts the market growth. Organizations resist data governance initiatives as they often fight with well-established data silos, making it difficult to create a unified governance framework. Identifying data owners is essential for governance, but organizations struggle to outline the data owner's responsibility. This leads to misunderstanding and impedes effective governance, which is expected to restrict the market growth.

Data Governance Market Segmentation Analysis

By Deployment Analysis

Cloud-based Solution to Prioritize Compliance & Regulation, Fueling Cloud Segment Growth

By deployment, the market is bifurcated into on-premises and cloud. The cloud segment is expected to witness the highest CAGR during the forecast period. Cloud-based solutions highlight the significance of data privacy and ethical practices. Also, a cloud-based solution ensures that organizations comply with several regulations, including HIPPA, GDPR, and others,. These solutions offer robust security measures, thereby establishing a strong base for data protection.

For instance, in March 2023, Immuta partnered with Interago to help Norwegian enterprises speed up data access across all major cloud platforms.
