Reduction in the total cost of ownership, strengthening of security and a reduction in cyberattacks, and better user experience are key factors driving the market growth.
What is Passwordless Authentication?
Passwordless authentication is a means to verify a user’s identity without a password. Instead, passwordless authentication uses more secure alternatives, such as possession factors (One-Time Passwords [OTP], registered smartphones), or biometrics (fingerprint, retina scans).

According to MnM’s market evaluation framework, most companies opt for inorganic growth strategies to maintain their position in the market. The number of deals increased by around 50-60% in 2020-2021. These deals collectively include partnerships, acquisitions, collaborations, and alliances. Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, there was a sudden decline in product launches and business expansion activities. However, from 2021 onwards, companies are expected to follow organic growth strategies to provide passwordless authentication solutions and services to end users, which, on the other hand, would help companies increase their market revenue.
