Surge in Uptake of Security Modules for Fraud Detection

Despite significant advancements in digital technologies and cybersecurity systems, credit and debit frauds across the world continue to pose a major challenge. Detecting and preventing fraud is a major concern within the e-Commerce sector, as e-Commerce companies continue to focus on providing a seamless customer experience, particularly during the payment stage. In addition, according to the Identity Theft Resource Centre (ITRC), credit card fraud is one of the major causes of identity theft in the U.S. The advent of fraud monitoring techniques, including IP geolocation has made significant promise in addressing this problem. IP geolocation solutions assist analysts and fraud investigators to pinpoint the geographical location of the user by offering insights including latitude, longitude, postal code, city, country, time zone, etc. Within the IP geolocation solutions market, the security module segment is expected to have the second-highest market share by 2022.

Key Drivers of IP Geolocation Solutions Market

  • Increase in Data Breaches and Cyber-attacks: Data breaches and cyber-attacks are significantly increasing worldwide. Attackers are progressively targeting financial institutions, banks, and large companies, thereby raising the threat of cyber-attacks. The recent Symantec report highlights a huge increase in the number of cyber-attacks, from 6000 attacks in 2016 to 50,000 attacks in 2017 (600%), in which China accounted for 21% (highest share) of cyber-attacks, followed by the United States at 11%, Brazil at 7%, and the Russian Federation at 6%. It is crucial for organizations and governments to utilize their allocated budget to secure their information. For instance, in September 2015, the Singapore government announced plans to spend up to 10% of its total Information Technology (IT) budget on cyber security. Therefore, instances of international cyber-attacks have raised concerns about data security. They have thus hiked the demand for IP geolocation solutions even in small & medium enterprises (SMEs).
  • Increasing Usage of Location-based Services: Location-based services (LBS) are mainly used to provide information about a user’s geographic location over the internet by utilizing real-time geographical data. The introduction of Internet of Things (IoT), wireless technologies, smart devices, and cloud computing has led to increased traffic on websites. LBS is significant to many enterprises and government organizations to gain real insights from data tied to a precise location where actions take place. On-line commerce, banking, surveillance, and many other sectors are dependent on LBS. Thus, location-based services (LBS) have become important across numerous sectors such as e-commerce, defense & intelligence, government authorities, telecommunication, transportation, e-retailing, manufacturing, and others. This has driven the acceptance of location-based services (LBS) to enhance the services and improve user experience based on end-user location which drives location-based services worldwide. Therefore, increasing usage of location-based services is significantly driving the growth of the IP geolocation solutions market worldwide.

Key Restraints of IP Geolocation Solutions Market

  • Coverage & Default Locations: Various solution providers use GPS coordinates as part of a response. However, these coordinates generally spot a default location inside the relevant geography, instead of providing an accurate geographic center. Thus, these coordinates are not very reliable to recognize the precise location of the user linked with the IP address. As a result, coverage & default locations are expected to hamper the growth of the IP geolocation solutions market worldwide.
