The global data privacy software market size was valued at USD 2.76 billion in 2023 and is projected to grow from USD 3.84 billion in 2024 to USD 48.28 billion by 2032, exhibiting a CAGR of 37.2% during the forecast period (2024-2032). 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.

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.

Data Privacy Software Market Trends

Integration of AI and ML to Surge Demand for Data Privacy Solutions

Data privacy concerns are rising due to increasing data breaches, and businesses are taking certain steps to protect their data. According to a Cisco Data Privacy Benchmark Study 2023, around 95% of businesses stated that privacy was an important factor for their business growth. The adoption of AI and ML is increasing for preventing data breaches and helping businesses identify risk and protect their data in less time. According to a study by IBM in 2023, the cost of a data breach, the average time taken to detect and enclose a data breach is 277 days. Therefore, AI and ML can make it easier for business owners to safeguard their data.

In 2024, AI-powered privacy technologies will be used for identifying and preventing cyber threats. Organizations are using AI and ML for identifying potential data privacy risks by getting recommendations, prompts, and trends across data through the AI and ML algorithms. Also, these algorithms can rapidly analyze large datasets, identify patterns, and adjust to emerging regulations, making it an effective tool for mitigating privacy risks.
