The demand for fraud detection and prevention solutions is expected to witness CAGR of 16.62% over the forecast period, to reach a total market value of $19.92 billion by end of 2020. In the recent years, increasing penetration of internet enabled devices and rising online transactions is rife with fraudulent activities. Fraud has been on the rise and today it has become a boardroom issue; people across the globe are concerned more about fraud - ranging from employees misuse of identity card to large-scale frauds, concerning high-value contracts, thereby leading to serious businesses implications such as loss of reputation & ethics and stunted growth; and also incurring heavy losses up to 8% of revenue annually for some of the enterprises.
Growing proliferation of E-Tailing and E-Banking globally (47.5 % of people are using desktop/laptop for making online transactions as compared to smartphone and tablet users, who accounted for 39.2% and 10.5% share respectively, in 2013) has led transaction web to become more complex; tracking and monitoring of the data flow more challenging leading to increasing numbers of frauds across different industries.
Fraud detection and prevention (FDP) solutions have thus become more important in the current scenario than it has ever been. Traditional methods of fraud detection have been replaced by sophisticated techniques involving statistical modelling and simulation, machine learning and data mining techniques.
Emergence of e-banking and e-commerce, high adoption of IP-Based services, growth in online transactions and increasing revenue losses due to fraudulent activities are some of the factors augmenting the demand for fraud detection and prevention solutions across the globe. Whereas, Lack of integration capability with all verticals is one of the key impediments hindering the growth of the market.
Rapid technological developments and the large numbers of consumers present/operating online have led fraud to be one of the fastest emerging threats to all types of organizations. Over the last five years, information technology and the internet has gained foothold across different industry verticals; increasing vulnerability of every sector to the threat of organized and automated crimes, and misappropriations.
Addressing FDP encompasses a set of activities including creation of a controlled environment, fraud risk assessment, monitoring customer transaction and activities, detection of fraud and inconsistencies, sharing of information, communication and strategic consulting, in order to address specific loopholes.
