The Identity Theft Protection Services industry has fared well over the last five years, despite a decline in revenue in 2009. As more people use credit and debit cards online and on their smartphones, the need for identity security has increased. Revenue has grown strongly since 2007, and this growth will get stronger over the next five years. However, slowing per capita disposable income will threaten potential industry gains, as consumers may not yet have the funds available to purchase industry services.
Companies in this industry primarily provide software and services aimed at reducing the risk of identity theft from online or electronic media. Firms frequently use monitoring software to track unauthorized use of credit and other personal information.
The report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecast, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
