Data Broker Market Regional Insights


By region, the study provides market insights into North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and the Rest of the World. The anticipated expansion of the Data Broker market in North America can be attributed to several key factors. In the United States, the practice of data brokerage, involving the acquisition, collection, sale, licensing, and exchange of individuals' data, remains largely unregulated. Prominent data brokerage firms are currently offering extensive datasets on U.S. individuals for sale, and existing U.S. laws provide little restriction on the sale of this data to various sectors, including insurance companies, law enforcement agencies, and foreign entities. This data may be employed for activities that potentially infringe upon Americans' civil rights, pose risks to U.S. national security, and even jeopardize democracy. A suggested course of action involves the consideration of granting the executive branch the authority to implement export controls, thereby prohibiting potential data broker sales of sensitive information about U.S. citizens to foreign states and non-state entities closely affiliated with foreign intelligence and security services. Additionally, the United States should incorporate data brokerage into comprehensive federal privacy legislation. This legislation would establish and enforce restrictions on the private collection, aggregation, sale, licensing, and sharing of data belonging to U.S. individuals. This includes placing limitations on the federal government's procurement of data broker data and enhancing the Federal Trade Commission's authority to investigate unfair and exploitative practices by data brokers.
