The global tokenization market was valued at USD 2.81 billion in 2023. The market is projected to be worth USD 3.32 billion in 2024 and reach USD 13.20 billion by 2032, exhibiting a CAGR of 18.8% during the forecast period (2024-2032). The growth of the industry is due to the increasing adoption of digitization processes and the digital processing of all sensitive data. The rise in complex and simple digital payments has accelerated industry growth. Advances in technology have enabled the provision of advanced data security solutions and services to the market.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, nearly every business has been affected or closed. After the first global pandemic, companies started digitizing their processes to ensure that disruptions did not lead to further delays or stagnation of processes. This digitization means that businesses need to process sensitive consumer data on a regular basis. As companies rapidly digitize their services, this technology has proven to be an excellent tool for ensuring the security of sensitive data. During this extraordinary event, the market grew as a direct result of the influx of digital payments.

The COVID-19 pandemic brought positive change, such as the shift towards digitalization and cashless payment or online commerce, which could be beneficial to this market over time. Since the pandemic, digital payment companies such as Phonepe, Paytm, and Amazon Pay have seen a sudden spike in transactions through their digital wallets..

Tokenization Market Trends

Increasing Demand for Secure Payment Gateways is a Key Trend

Organizations need to manage their security to protect sensitive data from financial and other kinds of fraud. The increasing adoption of payment gateways and an increasing number of government regulations on the use of private information are some of the key trends witnessed in this market.

Due to the growing number of data breaches, the demand for a secure payment gateway is increasing, which is a major key trend in this market. According to Baymard Institute’s research, in 2023, 18% of online carts were left unordered because users didn’t trust the site for payment gateway. Customers are switching to more secure payment gateway options due to the currency involved in the process as a result of the increased adoption of payment gateways. Thus, the rising demand for secure payment gateway is increasing the use of tokenization solutions and services.

Tokenization Market Growth Factors

Rapid Proliferation of Digital Payment Methods to Aid Market Growth

The market is driven by the rapid proliferation of digital payment methods. There are several challenges, especially in terms of security, with the increased use of digital payments. End-users such as retail, healthcare, and banking & insurance use tokenization to replace confidential data in a unique code known as a token, for protection against security breaches due to the volume of digital payments. According to a survey conducted in the year 2021, more than 80% of Americans used digital payments and demanded easier, safer, and faster payments.

Businesses and consumers are seeking solutions to reduce risk exposure while improving compliance, given the increasing incidence of security breaches and threats associated with digital payments. Furthermore, due to fraud and inaccurate information, there is a growing drop in payment card use, which leads to the loss of sales and poor customer experience. Therefore, tokenization as a solution overcomes these obstacles and is being adopted by businesses.


Absence of Consistent Regulation and Technical Issues to Hamper the Market Growth

A key obstacle to the widespread application of this technology is the lack of regulatory clarity. The current draft standards for security token values are still being developed at an early stage, which is expected to evolve substantially over time. These challenges are creating difficulties for the widespread adoption of tokenization in combination with the borderless nature of the blockchain.

Mostly, where sensitive data is moved to the cloud environment, some organizations also encounter technical issues. As a result, issues related to system integration and regulation could hamper growth during the forecast period.

Tokenization Market Segmentation Analysis

By Component Analysis

Operational Flexibility and Visibility of Tokenization Components to Increase the Demand for Services

Based on the component, the market is segmented into solutions and services. In terms of market share, solutions dominated the market in 2023. This growth is mainly driven by the increasing need to secure compliance with payment security guidelines, ensure constant customer experience, and maintain fraud prevention levels due to an increase in financial crime. In addition, lucrative growth opportunities are seen for the market through increasing consumer interest in digital payment.

The services are expected to grow at a higher CAGR during the forecast period. The growth of this segment can be attributed to the increasing need for visibility between organizations to diagnose and resolve problems before affecting the diagnosis of operations. These services are secure and can be enhanced and tailored. Several service providers and value-added resellers have been helped by the increasing demand for services in this market, which has also encouraged them to increase their partnerships.

By Application Analysis

High Adoption of Advanced Payment Security Measures to Increase the Demand for Payment Security

Based on the application, the market is segmented into payment security, user authentication, and compliance management. In terms of market share, payment security dominated the market in 2023. The growth is due to the increasing demand for advanced payment security solutions for online retail and across different sectors and the growing need to protect online business transactions from advanced cyber-attacks. Banks are adopting this solution and payment application developers to help protect consumers' sensitive data due to the rapid growth of digital payments.

User authentication is expected to grow at a higher CAGR during the forecast period. The growth of this segment is due to enhanced payment security measures and the need to prevent unauthorized users from accessing devices and networks. Also, an increase in cyberattacks on financial technology services providers and a growing demand for protecting user payment transaction data is increasing the demand for this market.

By Enterprise Type Analysis

Increase in Need of Compliance Rules for SMEs to Aid Market Expansion

Based on enterprise type, the market is segmented into large enterprises and Small & Medium Enterprises (SMEs). Small & Medium Enterprises (SMEs) are expected to significantly grow at a higher CAGR during the forecast period, owing to the need for complying with the rules of tokens with risks related to data fraud. For small businesses, it offers a significant opportunity to simplify operations, increase the engagement of customers and strengthen their growth prospects. Furthermore, the cost and flexibility benefits made available to SMEs justify their preference for operating expense business models over capital expenditure.

As per market share, large enterprises dominated the market in 2023.  As a result of the rise in money laundering and other forms of fraud, processing of high risk transactions, as well as cost effectiveness measures to avoid manual operations, large enterprises are implementing tokenization systems.
