The Global Access Control as a Service (ACaaS) Market size is expected to reach $2.3 billion by 2028, rising at a market growth of 15.0% CAGR during the forecast period


Access control as a service (ACaaS) describes the provision of subscription-based services and solutions to regulate access to web applications and services provided by an organization. To monitor access remotely, backup, and store data securely, it combines on-site access control devices with software and servers kept at data centers.

New York, Jan. 27, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- announces the release of the report "Global Access Control as a Service Market Size, Share & Industry Trends Analysis Report By Service Type, By Cloud Deployment Model, By Vertical, By Regional Outlook and Forecast, 2022 - 2028" -

Across sectors, ACaaS is used to attest to and empower people, enhancing physical security at various sites. Administrators may primarily manage their web-hosted infrastructure with ACaaS. It offers customers access to a wide range of capabilities, including user authentication and authorization, support for the Windows Identity Foundation, well-known web identity services, and numerous additional platforms and services for identification and authorization.

SaaS applications are increasingly being used across all business areas by really successful companies. With demand continuing to rise, the industry is projected to experience significant expansion over the next years. However, rising SaaS use, such as file-sharing, file-storage, messaging, etc., poses problems since it causes important company data to leave the perimeter’s perimeter security and rely more on the individual security measures of each SaaS service.

The market turbulence was influenced by changes in the IT and telecom industries, digital transformations throughout industries, and the faltering global economy. Over the past few years, the market for access control as a service has steadily increased. Additionally, to expand the market, solution providers are always encouraging R&D investments to create new, customized solutions and services.

COVID-19 Impact Analysis

The COVID-19 Pandemic has raised the demand for access control as a service as businesses have moved to digital platforms. The market’s initial reaction to COVID-19 was muted. A decline in supply and demand has halted the expansion of IT infrastructure. Businesses that offer solutions and services are also predicted to stop operating temporarily. But it’s expected that the use of collaborative apps, security measures, analytics, and artificial intelligence (AI) will increase in the 2nd half of the year. Businesses and governments were compelled to handle analytical issues that arose during the execution of critical business decisions throughout the COVID-19 pandemic.

Market Growth Factors

Widespread BYOD Culture And Enhanced Performance

Bring Your Own Device is gaining popularity, and BaaS providers have invested a substantial amount of money to promote this trend. Due to this culture, the amount of data generated in organizations all over the world is increasing. Moreover, the COVID-19 pandemic also supported the expansion of the BYOD culture. There are three significant obstacles to the spread of BaaS, namely the increasing competition in the mobile apps industry, concerns over performance and security measures, and vendor choice. These factors are pushing Access Control as a Services Market forward.

Increasing Demand For Internet-Connected Hardware And Cloud Computing

Cloud technology has been heavily utilized across a wide range of sectors. Technology has greatly improved the ability to store data in the cloud. As both individuals and companies find cloud computing technology valuable for everyday use, the government is investing extensively in its implementation across all industries.

Market Restraining Factors

Security Worries And A Lack Of Knowledge

Organizations struggle to keep up with the rising cloud compliance requirements because of the threat landscape’s continual change. To provide ongoing visibility into their cloud assets and reduce the risk of cloud-based threats, they need a security team with the requisite technical expertise for creating, processing, analyzing, and securing cloud solutions. Due to this lack of awareness, the market for Access Control as a Service Market is expected to see a decline in adoption in the upcoming years.

Service Type Outlook

Based on the service type, the Access Control as a Service (ACaaS) Market is classified into Hosted, Managed, and Hybrid. The hosted category acquired the largest revenue share in 2021.

Software upgrades and IT maintenance are eliminated by hosted access control, which utilizes secure Internet or two-way radio transmission to interact between each site and the host server.

Cloud deployment model Outlook

Based on the Cloud deployment model, the market is categorized into Public Cloud, Private Cloud, and Hybrid Cloud. In 2021, the ACaaS market’s private cloud segment will generate the substantial revenue share. A private cloud is an adaptable and trustworthy architecture for computer services that are provided over either a private internal network or the Internet. Additionally, the services provided on private cloud infrastructure adhere to all legal requirements and can be used by numerous end users.

Vertical Outlook

Based on the vertical, the Access Control as a Service (ACaaS) Market is divided into Commercial, Manufacturing, Industrial, Government, Healthcare, Education, Residential, Transportation, and Retail segments. In 2021, the commercial vertical category held the highest market share. The rise in theft and robbery in commercial structures is blamed for this expansion. Property owners are purchasing security systems with ACaaS for remote monitoring to safeguard business assets. A key problem today is theft and criminal activity related to information security. In order to improve security, protect people, and address security challenges, corporations invest millions of dollars in security.

Regional Outlook
