The enterprise governance, risk, and compliance (eGRC) market is expected to register a CAGR of 12.5% in the forecast period (2020-2025). Organizations operate in a complex and highly dynamic global environment.

- Moreover, the rising threats amongst organizations owing to digitalization and sharing of vast data across the globe have led to different forms of cyber threats and attacks. Hence, the cybersecurity threat is one of the critical drivers for eGRC software adoption. The increasing need for efficiency in financial assessment and cost-saving solutions is expected to fuel the market growth.
- However, lack of awareness about the various benefits of eGRC, especially in small and medium businesses, has hindered market growth. Furthermore, continuous changes in the company’s code of conducts and organizational structures are likely to curb market growth. For instance, only 36% of organizations have a formal enterprise risk management (ERM) program.
