High compatibility with financial services ecosystems and the rising cryptocurrencies market cap and ICO and faster transaction are expected to boost the growth of FinTech blockchain market.
The global FinTech blockchain market size is expected to grow from USD 370.3 million in 2018 to USD 6,228.2 million by 2023, at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 75.9% during the forecast period. The demand for the distributed ledger technology, reduced total cost of ownership, the rising cryptocurrencies market cap and initial coin offerings, transparency and immutability, and faster transactions are said to fuel the market growth. The blockchain technology can set rules for transactions and enables smart contracts; real-time settlements; triple-entry accounting; and consensus to create ownership of virtual currencies and securities, leading to higher compatibility with the financial services industry ecosystem. However, uncertain regulatory standards and frameworks, and lack of blockchain applications and use cases would restrain the market growth during the forecast period.
Payments, clearing, and settlement segment is expected to account for the largest market size during the forecast period.
The blockchain is a peer-to-peer technology with nodes supporting the ledger and the mining process and enables connectivity, which significantly transforms the payment industry. The integration of this technology provides real-time payments against assets with an immutable state and digital identity, resulting in substantial cost savings with respect to the reconciliation and settlement for several financial institutions and banks. In addition, blockchain automates the payment processing activities, eliminates the need for intermediaries, and reduces the administrative costs and time for providers and payers. All these factors are expected to fuel the overall growth of this segment in the FinTech blockchain market.
APAC is projected to show the highest growth rate during the forecast period.
