EMEA: implementation of strict legislation to boost growth

The adoption of GRC services is increasing in EMEA, especially in the EU countries, due to the implementation of strict legislation such as the European Union Data Protection Act (1995). The latest version of the data protection law, General Data Protection Regulation, adopted in 2016 provides guidelines for companies operating in the region regarding the implementation of data security measures and for ensuring transparency and accountability.

In 2015, Europe had the largest market share for consumer financing products. The European Central Bank (ECB) is pumping liquidity into the market to reduce pressure on issuers and boost funding in the mortgage, auto, and the credit card markets. Technavio expects the European finance market to launch different consumer credit products that would help in project financing by 2018. This will Increase the need for data governance and subsequent management of risks. The above development will have a positive impact on the GRC technology market in the region.

APAC: high growth in the adoption of GRC platform services in Asia

APAC accounted for a share of approximately 19% in the global GRC platform market and will grow at a CAGR is more than 10% during the forecast period. GRC adoption has been slow in the region due to the complex business processes and lack of infrastructural support among organizations. Many companies in Asia are not aware of GRC technologies due to the un-coordinated marketing efforts of the vendors in the region.

However, organizations have started implementing GRC solutions to minimize risks and safeguard the business from different compliance issues. The implementation of GRC solutions is still confined to a selected few business processes like operational, transactional, and financial information of companies. Technavio expects high growth in the adoption of GRC platform services in Asia compared with other regions due to increasing popularity of SaaS-based solutions, mobile apps, big data and analytics, and social media services in the region. Companies relying on these technologies will implement GRC solutions to safeguard their data from cyber-attacks.

“The market in APAC is still in its nascent stage, however, high demand for risk management solutions to address enterprise-wide risks will drive market growth during the forecast period,” says Amit.

The top vendors in the global GRC platform market as highlighted in this research analysis are:

  • CMO Software
  • Dell
