Blockchain Finance Market Research, 2032

The global blockchain finance market size was valued at $792.3 million in 2022 and is projected to reach $79.3 billion by 2032, growing at a CAGR of 60.5% from 2023 to 2032. 

Blockchain technology is a decentralized distributed ledger system that uses cryptography to securely store data. It allows users to transfer digital assets securely from one party to another without the involvement of intermediaries or third parties.

Blockchain Finance Market Insights

The data saved on the blockchain is immutable, which means that once it has been recorded on the ledger, it cannot be updated or altered. Data is stored in blocks that are linked together in a chain in a blockchain database. The data is chronologically consistent as the user cannot delete or change the chain without network consensus. Therefore, blockchain technology can be used to establish an immutable ledger for recording orders, payments, accounts, and other transactions. The system includes techniques for preventing unauthorized transaction submissions and ensuring consistency in the shared view of these transactions.

Blockchain technology has the potential to revolutionize the blockchain finance market by significantly improving settlement processes and expediting payment transactions. In traditional settlement periods, the time taken to fulfill all obligations after a trade execution, can be notably shortened through blockchain technology. Swift recording of trade submissions and their confirmation on a blockchain can lead to substantial reductions in settlement cycles. This has the potential to enhance liquidity in various types of trades that currently grapple with extended settlement timelines, thereby optimizing capital utilization. Unlike the current scenario where financial asset settlement typically occurs only during banking hours, blockchain can enable settlement against payment at any time, on any date, and in a matter of seconds. This also ensures legal finality and certainty in transactions. These factors are aniticipated to boost the blockchain finance industry growth. 

While blockchain technology in blockchain finance market offers numerous advantages, it also presents certain challenges that are expected to impede its widespread adoption in the finance sector. One of the major significant challenges is scalability. Blockchain databases are permanently stored on all network nodes, which can lead to a storage issue. The amount of data a personal computer can accommodate is limited, and as transaction volumes increase, so does the size of the blockchain database. This means that blockchain ledgers have the potential to grow significantly over time. Scaling up distributed ledger systems, especially for permissionless blockchains that rely on a competitive process to confirm transactions, can be particularly challenging.

The computational race required for confirmation demands substantial computing power, which in turn limits the speed at which new transactions can be processed. Regardless of whether a blockchain is permissioned or permissionless, every node in the network must maintain its copy of the distributed ledger, necessitating substantial storage resources. These factors are anticipated to boost blockchain finance market growth. 

The blockchain finance market is rapidly embracing blockchain, spanning from smaller enterprises to industry giants, with significant investments in blockchain stocks and technology implementation. To achieve optimal outcomes, widespread adoption of blockchains is essential. This is particularly critical in the realm of financial services, where seamless collaboration necessitates standardized transaction handling. In finance, blockchain facilitates peer-to-peer transactions, eliminating the need for intermediaries.

Smart contracts play a pivotal role in ensuring successful transaction management, thereby eradicating unnecessary intermediaries. The consolidation of the system's layers enables instant payment settlements, revolutionizing the speed of financial transactions. Moreover, the expertise of blockchain extends to cross-border payments, enabling instantaneous cross-border transactions through blockchain-based payment systems. These factors are anticipated to boost the blockchain finance market opportunity. 

The blockchain finance market forecast key players profiled in this report include Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu Limited, R3, Alphabet, Circle Internet Financial Limited, JP Morgan Chase, Microsoft Corporation, Goldman Sachs, Global Arena Holding Inc. (GAHI), International Business Machines (IBM) Corporation, and Accenture.

The blockchain finance market players are continuously striving to achieve a dominant position in this competitive market using strategies such as collaborations and acquisitions. For instance, in July 2022, New Street Tech, a blockchain technology company, received approval from the RBI to take part in the Third Cohort of the Regulatory Sandbox for MSME financing. The co-lending product was evaluated in collaboration with Federal Bank and was launched on New Street Tech's MiFiX platform. The MiFiX project was developed to demonstrate the potential utilization of contemporary technologies like blockchain in restructuring the co-lending process. Collaborations with Federal Bank and other participants such as NBFCs played a pivotal role in accelerating processes, mitigating risks, and enhancing data security and operational efficiency.

The blockchain finance market outlook is segmented on the basis of type, application, and region. By type, the market is divided into public blockchain, private blockchain, and others. By application, the market is classified into cross-border payments & settlement, trade finance, asset management, identity verification, and others.

Segment Review

The blockchain finance market is segmented into Type and Application.

Blockchain Finance Market by Type

By type, the public blockchain sub-segment dominated the blockchain finance market in 2022. A public blockchain is a permissionless and open network that allows for unfettered participation and involvement. As the system is decentralized, there is no need for a centralized authority to oversee or control operations, promoting a trustless environment. The immutability of public blockchains ensures the security of information—once validated, it stays unalterable. Ethereum and Bitcoin are prominent instances of public blockchains in the financial sector. Public blockchains leverage significant computational power, making them ideal for maintaining large distributed ledgers associated with financial transactions. These factors are anticipated to boost the blockchain finance market. 

Blockchain Finance Market by Application

By application, the cross-border payments & settlement sub-segment dominated the global blockchain finance market share in 2022. Payments made across borders are referred to as cross-border payments. Individuals, enterprises, merchants, industries, and international development groups all rely on cross-border payments. Cross-border transactions, on the contrary, are frequently difficult due to excessive costs and lengthy processing delays. The usage of blockchain in cross-border payments will simplify the cross-border payment process. The use of blockchain technology for cross-border payments will benefit the global economy. The use of distributed ledger technology, sometimes known as blockchain technology, is a major game changer in cross-border money transfer. It uses encryption technology to speed up the payment procedure. All these are the major factors projected to drive the blockchain finance market. 

Blockchain Finance Market by Region

By region, North America dominated the blockchain finance market in 2022. The region's improving economic situation and the government initiatives to expand infrastructure in the financial sectors are some of the reasons driving the growth of the regional market. Furthermore, blockchain technology in banking and finance enables cryptographic security and transparency, reducing fraud in banks and driving market growth in this region. This region is home to most banks and other financial institutions, as well as a number of large enterprises that provide banking and financial services. Due to its well-established financial infrastructure and features, North America stands as an ideal for implementing blockchain technology in the banking sector. All these are major factors projected to drive the regional blockchain finance industry revenue growth in the upcoming years.
