Die Marktaussichten für Self Sovereign Identities sind einer Analyse von Juniperresearch zufolge günstig (Vgl. dazu: Self-Sovereign Identity to be a Billion-Dollar Industry by 2024).

Self-Sovereign Identity: Value Chain Analysis, Business Models & Forecasts 2020-2024, notes that 88% of revenue for SSI providers will come from businesses paying a subscription to run these identity services. As SSI solutions are still in their early stages, early adopter companies require a consultancy approach to aid implementation, as well as the technical solution from emerging SSI market leaders, such as EvernymCivic and Metadium. Juniper Research believes that the need for the continued use of third party blockchain servers, like those offered by IBMand Microsoft, will result in the continued dominance of the subscription model.

Eine wichtige Einschränkung:

However, Juniper Research believes other business models, like billing per user or per request, will grow slowly because of the many forms of competition that SSI faces, both from digital and traditional forms of identity verification. This will result in only 32 million end user apps being in use by the end of 2024.
