US spending on identity solutions and services will increase by 13.0% YoY to reach $10.4 billion this year, per the Winterberry Group.

Beyond the chart: Investment in identity solutions and services has accelerated over the past few years as marketers prepare for the deprecation of third-party cookies. Spending is also driven by marketers’ efforts to expand across multiple digital channels and an increasing demand for first-party data relationships, according to our “ID Resolution H1 2023” report.
