Market Report Description

The Global Data Masking Market size is expected to reach $2.2 billion by 2031, rising at a market growth of 11.8% CAGR during the forecast period.

Many IT and telecom companies outsource certain functions or provide access to third-party vendors for various services. Consequently, the IT and telecom segment would generate 17.2% revenue share of the market by 2031. While this can streamline operations, it also increases the risk of data exposure. Data masking allows companies to share data with third parties for tasks like software development, testing, or analytics while protecting the confidentiality of sensitive information.

Data Masking Market Size - Global Opportunities and Trends Analysis Report 2020-2031

The introduction of stringent data privacy regulations such as the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA), and other global privacy laws has mandated organizations to protect sensitive information and ensure individuals' privacy rights are upheld.  Therefore, the rising demand for data privacy solutions drives the market's growth.

Additionally, AI and ML algorithms can automatically discover and classify sensitive data within large datasets, including personally identifiable information (PII), financial data, and healthcare records. This capability is essential for effective data masking, as it enables organizations to identify which data elements need to be protected and apply masking techniques accordingly. In conclusion, the emergence of AI and machine learning propels the market's growth.

However, Organizations often have vast and diverse datasets containing various types of sensitive information, including structured and unstructured data, across multiple data sources and formats. Identifying, classifying, and masking sensitive data within such diverse datasets can be daunting. Thus, complexity and implementation challenges are hampering the market's growth.
