Market Synopsis


The global security assertion markup language (SAML) authentication market size is expected to register an exponential CAGR during the forecast period.


The SAML authentication is a standardized method of authentication to prove one’s identity and enable access to all the external applications and services they desire to access. SAML is a set of standards that enables all internet users to log in using a web portal and seamless access the information or other online services without logging providing credentials multiple times. SAML is an open-source XML protocol that enables the exchange of information for authentication and authorization between an identity provider and service provider (usually a cloud or a web-based application). SAML is also known with other terms such as token-based authentication, security token services, federated authentication, and identity federation. It was first released by the Organization for the Advancement of Structured Information Standards (OASIS) in 2002.


The security assertion markup language (SAML) authentication market is driven by the increase in the need for effective management of bulk identities and the rise in demand for a consistent and unified methodology to ensure the security of identities. Additionally, the increase in Internet penetration and rapid developments in the telecom industry increasing the use of the Internet over smartphones in emerging economies such as India boost the growth of the security assertion markup language (SAML) authentication market. The rising trend for BYOD is creating opportunities for SAML solutions and is expected to take the market growth to the next level. However, this market growth is hampered by the limited awareness regarding the availability of identification and authentication protocols to prevent unauthorized enterprise access.
