Enterprises may enhance supply chain efficiency, employee productivity, and customer interaction via information technology. In addition, technology is used to manage inventories, pay invoices, and provide customer service. Access control systems regulate the operations, functions, and behavior of authorized users within the company.

Also, they safeguard the accuracy of the data kept in the system. The term "role-based access control" (RBAC) refers to a relatively new access control system. Every organization has various needs regarding role-based access control, which is made to cut down on administrative expenses. The organizational structure is also simplified, which aids businesses in maximizing operational effectiveness. In addition, role-based access control enables organizations to define and apply security policies.

The growing requirement for information control as businesses expand the functionality and data made available on internal & external networks is one of the market-driving drivers for role-based access control. Moreover, security lapses may interrupt an organization's activities. Therefore, users' access to the system is restricted via role-based access control. So, it contributes to improved security being provided. In addition, it limits access to the network based on a person's position inside the company.

COVID-19 Impact Analysis

Businesses and governments must deal with analytical problems that arose during the COVID-19 pandemic while making crucial economic choices. Furthermore, businesses have noticed a demand for cloud-based technologies as COVID-19 has grown, allowing data engineers to stress data-driven goals to get insights from the data. Because of the rising concerns regarding phishing & cyberattacks, multifactor authentication systems have grown increasingly popular among businesses. The COVID-19 pandemic has proven to be the driver for this expansion. These elements have led to the role-based access control market's expansion both during and after the pandemic period.

Market Growth Factors

Growing need to enhance the compliance requirement within the organizations

Administrators may track which personnel is logging in and when and any changes made and permissions provided. Companies may address problems at any time, assisting them in adhering to regulations like HIPPA, SOX, SOC2, and ISO 27001. These legal obligations rely on network visibility to demonstrate that sensitive data handling has complied with privacy, security, and confidentiality standards. Due to this rising need to enhance compliance requirements, the adoption of role-based control systems is anticipated to surge, thereby supporting market growth.

Use of blockchain technology in role-based access control

Access control can be effectively managed due to the inherent security of blockchain technology. Organizations can achieve this by limiting access to particular regions to a select group of people. Identity-related problems, including fraud, data security challenges, and inaccessibility, can all be solved with the help of blockchain identity management solutions. Such security breaches are anticipated to increase role-based access control usage, leading to market expansion over the forecast period.

Market Restraining Factors

Inefficiency in identity management and role creation process

Administrators are granted the ability to make changes to group memberships and entitlements directly within the Active Directory to facilitate the effective implementation of RBAC models within businesses. As a result, if there isn't already a strong access control architecture, RBAC will cause problems for administrators and end users. Because of this, role-based access control might not be as widely accepted, which would hinder the expansion of the market over the projection period.
