Type – Segment Analysis
Dynamic data masking is expected to grow at a higher CAGR of 8.5% due to rising risk of data breaching across the globe. Dynamic Data Masking masks the Personal sensitive data and protects it from non-privileged users using built-in or customized masking functions, without preventing them from retrieving the unmasked data field. Increasing need for protected big data by dynamically masking sensitive information in Hadoop will be the key driving factors for Dynamic data masking. For Instance, in March 2019, IBM Watson group announced its plan to invest more than $1 billion in big data technology. Similarly, in June 2019, Sales force Inc. agreed to buy big data firm Tableau Software Inc. for $15.3 billion. The increased demand for Big Data will create opportunities for dynamic data masking technology and therefore accelerate the data masking market size.
By Vertical – Segment Analysis
Retail and eCommerce vertical is expected to grow with highest CAGR of 16.45% throughout the forecast period due to organizations which are operating in this industry are using data masking to maintain their brand image in the market and to ensure the security of customer’s sensitive data. For Instance, in june 2019, Flipkart had announced an investment of $800 million for several technologies including data masking to help the organization to minimize frauds.

Stringent regulations as such will drive the data masking market in this region. Similarly Chinese government has been implementing various laws and regulations to increase data security within China. These regulations will enforce the use of data security tools there by creating opportunity for data masking market.
Drivers –Data masking Market
Industries such as BFSI, Ecommerce, government etc. are becoming really cautious about internal hacking and data privacy concerns which expected to increase the growth of data masking technology market. BFSI and Ecommerce industries are growing at a CAGR of 8.2% and 9.5% in the forecast period. The Countries like India, China witnessed highest growth rate in Ecommerce sector for year 2018. This is likely to create new opportunity for data privacy and data security thereby creating demand for data masking market.
The demanding requirement from regulatory bodies on reducing data obfuscation, data breaching, cyber hacking and data privacy attacks are some of the reasons for rising growth of data masking technology. For Instance, in September 2019, US Federal trade commission (FTC) brought enforcement actions to protect consumer against unfair or deceptive practices and to enforce federal privacy and data protection regulations. Similarly, Indian government is planning to pass personal data protection bill to protect the individuals from cyberattacks threats. These regulations are likely to create demand for data masking technology.
Challenges – Data Masking Market
Complexities in data integration and loopholes in identifying sensitive data
Complexities in data integration and customization, and loopholes in identifying Personal sensitive data are still not achievable by data masking technology. On the other hand data masking is still a difficult process as the changed data must retain any characteristics of the original data that would require specific processing. These challenges will negatively hamper the demand of data masking market.
Partnership and acquisitions are key strategies adopted by players in the Data Masking market. In 2018, Data masking industry outlook has been fragmented by the top five players accounting for 52% of the share. Data masking top 10 companies include IBM Corporation, CA Technologies Inc., Informatica LLC, Oracle Corporation, Delphix, Micro Focus International plc, Mentis Inc., Compuware Corporation, Arcad Software, and Ekobit among others.
