Transaction monitoring is the process of administering, reviewing, and analyzing the transaction processed on an information system or on a business application. The main function of transaction monitoring is to monitor the customer transactions, which include assessing customers’ historical as well as current information and interactions to provide a complete picture of the customer activity. This activity includes withdrawals, transfers, and deposits. It is mainly done to evaluate the overall performance of the transaction processing system. Transaction monitoring software helps banks and other financial organizations to monitor customer transactions in real-time for analyzing different risks. It measures the response time performance of each component as well as the links between any of the components. Different organizations such as development and test organizations are also using transaction monitoring during the pre-production phase for identifying different potential bottlenecks.

Increase in the digitization of payments and need for mitigating money laundering and managing KYC compliance and CTF activities are the major factors that drive the growth of the market. In addition, surge in the need for identifying high risk activities by using advance analytics, need for organizations to comply with stringent regulatory agreements, and surge in the need of data protection regulations and lack of high-cost security solution within the payment network infrastructure fuels the growth of the market. However, lack of transaction monitoring and AML professionals and difficulties in managing cross-border and multi-jurisdictional AML-compliance hampers the growth of the market. Furthermore, integration of advance technology such AI, machine learning and big data and increase in the deployment of transaction monitoring system by SMEs are anticipated to provide lucrative opportunity for the market growth.
