The global enterprise governance, risk, and compliance (eGRC) market size was USD 24.26 billion in 2019 and is projected to reach USD 64.55 billion by 2027, exhibiting a CAGR of 13.3% during the forecast period.

The growth of this market is attributable to the increasing demand for comprehensive solutions by end-use organizations to overcome the reputational and monetary risks of non-compliance. Organizations worldwide are adopting enterprise GRC solutions to leverage various features such as business resiliency applications, risk & compliance management, and audit management, among others.

In addition, the rising instances of cyber-attacks across the globe are likely to fuel the growth of the market. According to the EC-Council, in 2019, a 300% increase in cyber-attacks on IoT devices was witnessed as compared to 2018. This has encouraged enterprises to adopt innovative risk management solutions to eliminate the risks of cyber-attacks.

The rising adoption of eGRC solutions assists enterprises to meet challenges of regulatory change, cybersecurity threats, third-party exposure, reputation risk, and others. According to the Open Compliance and Ethics Group (OCEG) survey, in 2018, around 85% of enterprises interviewed are convinced that they would benefit from implementing eGRC solutions. In addition, the rising demand for these tools based on innovative technologies such as artificial intelligence (AI), cloud, and big data, among others, is likely to drive the growth of the market.

COVID-19 Impact

Surge in eGRC Solutions amid Covid-19 to Create a Massive Platform for End-users

The COVID-19 crisis has created a sense of panic across the globe. The rapid spread of the coronavirus has compelled various governments to implement social distancing measures and strict lockdowns. In large organizations, compliance officers and risk managers are struggling to tackle this pandemic. In the current situation, risk management optimization through eGRC solutions has emerged as one of the best solutions an enterprise can have to ensure business continuity. Various enterprises are leveraging the capabilities of their risk administration teams via smart investments into risk management technologies. Hence, they are increasingly adopting these solutions to help employers to address exposures related to COVID-19.

  • For instance, in April 2020, Wolters Kluwer’s CPM business launched its COVID-19 related regulatory compliance resource - "COVID-19 Noteworthy Developments Bulletins". The aim is to provide COVID-19 related regulatory updates such as global regulatory orders, notices, changes, and other updates for the BFSI sector.

 Such active initiatives are expected to drive the enterprise governance, risk, and compliance (eGRC) market growth in the coming period.

Integration of the AI, IoT, and ML with eGRC Solutions to Aid Market Growth

The rising trend of integration of core technologies such as AI, the Internet of Things (IoT), and machine learning (ML) with eGRC solutions is expected to accelerate the growth of the market. The AI-powered solutions are gaining traction as they provide efficient analysis capabilities and enable the processing of large volumes of data that various governments and enterprises have to deal with daily. These solutions also have other advantages such as improved effectiveness, process optimization, reduced costs, and others. Key market players are focusing on launching advanced solutions based on AI and ML technologies to enhance their market presence.

  • For instance, in November 2019, Infosys Limited launched its AI- and ML-powered application digital suite - "Infosys Governance Risk & Compliance (GRC)". The aim is to provide a conversational interface and robotic process automation (RPA)-enabled control testing for the MetricStream platform to deliver ease of use and improved customer experience.


Increasing Stringency of Compliance Mandates for Enterprises to Drive the Market

The rising complexity of regulatory standards and the need to comply with different regulations imposed by governing bodies are likely to create massive demand for eGRC systems. eGRC policies directly influence IT infrastructure and related business processes. Enterprises are focused on shifting from traditional regulatory compliance rules and directives such as the Sarbanes-Oxley Act (SOX) to advanced risk- and compliance-related regulatory concerns.

In the current economic scenario, various enterprises are adopting eGRC solutions for the advancement of their business road maps. Staying compliant with regulations such as HIPAA, GDPR, COBIT, and other states & federal mandates is becoming critical for enterprises to avoid operational loss. Failure to meet these regulations and requirements can result in devastating business losses. Therefore, the rising stringency of compliance mandates is likely to drive the market growth for enterprise governance, risk, and compliance in the forthcoming years.

The following are some regulations and compliance acts in North America & Europe:

  • Control Objectives for Information and Related Technologies (COBIT)

  • The Federal Financial Institutions Examination Council (FFIEC)

  • The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)

  • The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS)

  • The Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act (GLBA)

  • Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA)

  • The Federal Information Security Management Act (FISMA)

  • The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST)


Varying Structure of Regulatory Policies May Inhibit Market Growth

The market is growing at a rapid pace, attributable to its multi-tasking abilities across various verticals. The structure of regulatory policies and governance changes from business to business and country to country. Various countries such as Afghanistan, Iraq, and Nigeria do not have an assigned body to implement regulatory policies. Such policies need to be executed and regulated by considering multiple factors, such as micro and macro-economic risk factors along with the business requirements. This is considered as one of the restraining factors for the growth of this market. Such factors are making it difficult for GRC solution suppliers to cater to the different end-user requirements. In some regions, where there is a lack of regulatory standards and structures imposed by governing bodies, the enterprises are focused on executing in-house regulatory policies and guidelines.
