This IDC report provides the market forecast from 2022 to 2026 for identity and digital trust solutions (also known as identity and access management, or IAM) in Europe. The study details projected growth by subregion, deployment type, and solution subcategory. Six subcategories are included: identity management, advanced authentication, B2C identity management, privileged access management, identity governance, and legacy solutions. The report examines the key trends that helped shape market growth in 2021 and will drive it over the next five years."Hybrid work imperatives continue to drive enterprise investments in unified identity platforms. Managing users, identities, and access remains a challenge, heightened by the pace of application and service rollout in cloud environments. This is driving identity vendors to focus on standards and interoperability, workflows and orchestration, and low code/no code approaches. Additional demand in the business-to-business (B2B) and B2C areas, along with transformative initiatives such as passwordless authentication and decentralized identity, will ensure that the identity space remains hot for the foreseeable future." - Research Manager Mark Child, Security Research Group, IDC Europe
