"Smart Strategies, Giving Speed to your Growth Trajectory"
The global data privacy software market size was valued at USD 1.99 billion in 2022. The market is projected to grow from USD 2.76 billion in 2023 to USD 30.31 billion by 2030, exhibiting a CAGR of 40.9% during the forecast period.
In the scope of the study, we have considered companies such as OneTrust, LLC, AvePoint, Inc., TrustArc, Inc., IBM Corporation, RSA Security LLC, and others. These companies are offering software solutions across various applications, including compliance management, reporting & analytics, risk management, and others.Data privacy software assists organizations in managing and operating customers’ personal data. The software classifies the content of the customer as per the country’s compliance rules and laws. The increasing concerns regarding personal and confidential data breaches are driving organizations to adopt data privacy software. For instance, in October 2020, AvePoint, Inc., announced its new Policies and Insights (PI) Software-as-a-Service solution to prevent exposure to sensitive data. This data access governance solution helps end-users in oversharing of the data.
Remote Work Culture Boosted Privacy Software Market Growth Amid Pandemic
During the pandemic period, various businesses and organizations witnessed temporary and permanent shutdowns. Also, major data breaches and cyber incidents occurred globally. As per Moneylife’s article, organizations such as BigBasket faced a data breach in March 2021, where the data of 20 million customers was hacked. Similarly, Twitter data breaches occurred in January 2020. The growing concern of losing personal data to hackers surges the demand for data privacy software across developing nations. Thus, organizations are implementing software, owing to growing cyber breaches as various countries opted for data privacy laws to reduce the misuse of customers’ personal data.
For instance, to manage the personally identifiable information (PII) of COVID-19-positive employees, various countries introduced healthcare guidelines. The companies could disclose the data of COVID-19-positive employees as per these guidelines. With the implementation of the software, the organizations enabled the verification of shared content. Thus, during 2020, the software witnessed slow growth, owing to sudden changes in the work environment. However, post-2020, the software is expected to gain remarkable growth.

Rising Government Regulations on Data Privacy to Surge the Demand for Data Privacy Solutions
The growing concerns about data privacy have forced the governments of various countries to implement data privacy enforcement laws and regulations. For instance, the European Union launched a regulation as “General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)” in response to the growing misuse of individuals’ personal data. The law was introduced to provide safety, protection, and rights to the individual to restrict its data usage by businesses and other organizations. Similarly, in December 2020, the U.S. introduced the “California Consumer Privacy Act” to empower California citizens with more control over their shared data. Likewise, in September 2020, to protect 140 million internet users’ private data, the Brazilian General Data Protection Law LGPD (Lei Geral de Proteção de Dados Pessoais) was introduced by the government of Brazil. Along with this, the government has 40 more industry or segment-specific data protection laws.
With such stringent regulations, organizations face challenges such as processing individual collected data securely and without violating any law. Organizations are facing difficulties in managing different country-specific regulations. These conditions have surged the demand for data privacy software. The software assists the organization in compliance with the policies and rules for data protection. Thus, the growth in data protection act worldwide is likely to drive the data privacy software market growth.
Rising Adoption of IoT Devices to Aid Global Data Privacy Software Market Growth
The data security management software demand is growing owing to rising IoT devices across industries such as manufacturing, BFSI, healthcare, and others. As per McKinsey & Company, by 2023, IoT-connected devices are expected to increase to 43 billion. Similarly, the vast implementation of 5G technology is expected to drive opportunities for key players in the market to expand their offerings.
The Internet of Things (IoT) technology shares and operates real-time data of customers and organizations. Real-time information and the information associated with transactions are shared through the wireless network. The adoption of IoT has seen a vast surge in several areas, such as smart retail, smart home appliances, smart city projects, and health monitoring, which has increased the need for IoT security. Thus, growing IoT devices and applications are likely to drive the demand for software.
Low Awareness and Insufficient Knowledge About Software Impede Industry Growth
Enterprises are facing challenges with the processing of customers’ personal data and insights. Lack of awareness about software among small and medium enterprises (SMEs), local organizations, and start-ups can hinder the growth of the market. Also, SMEs have a limited budget for IT services and solutions. This restricts the adoption of the software. These factors are expected to hinder the demand for the software and hamper market expansion.
Growing Demand for Cloud-based Software to Fuel the Market Growth
Increasing Stringent Government Regulations to Fuel Compliance Management Demand
Based on application, the market is categorized into compliance management, risk management, reporting & analytics, and others. Compliance management is expected to lead the segment during the forecast period. The software helps organizations perform activities in line with the regulation to protect confidential data. The growing laws in support of data protection are surging the demand for software across compliance management applications. Risk management is expected to gain rapid growth as the software identifies & evaluates threats and negative impacts of the operation on the individual’s data. Thus, to lower the risk of exposing the client's personal information, data privacy software is gaining traction in risk management.
Global Presence of Large Enterprises to Drive Demand for Software
Based on enterprise type, the market is divided into small & medium enterprises and large enterprises. Large enterprises are poised to dominate the segment share during the forecast period. The majority of large enterprises have a robust global presence, which drives the adoption of software for the management of country-wise data protection laws. Further, large enterprises collect, store, and operate on huge sets of client data.
During the forecast period, SMEs are expected to gain traction. The growing data breach incidents across developing nations surge the demand for software among government enterprises, start-ups, and small and medium enterprises. As per the 2020 Carbon Black report, the year 2019 recorded around 65,000 data breach attempts on SMEs in the U.K.
