Market Landscape & Trends

The retail banking industry witnesses millions of transactions every day where security, transparency, and cost-efficiency are a high priority. Most financial intermediaries such as payment networks, stock exchanges, and money transfer services suffer from cybercrime every year. Therefore, blockchain technology has gained tremendous adoption due to its intrinsic strengths to tackle secured, transparent and cost-efficient flow of transactions. Furthermore, this technology has improved payment transparency, efficiency, trust, and security as well as reduced the cost for financial services firms and users.

Moreover, a huge majority of transactions could be recorded using blockchain digital ledgers which would be unalterable and so prevent fraud. In addition, blockchain technology’s low costs give startups a chance to compete with major banks, promoting financial inclusion. Further, it stores information in a ledger with transaction information within each block, along with a unique hash that refers to the previous block. Every person within the network receives a copy of the transactions as well. Because of these features, blockchain technology is resistant to distributed denial-of-service attacks, hackers, and other types of fraud.

For instance, in October 2019, IBM announced a new blockchain banking solution that helps financial institutions address the processes of universal cross-border payments, designed to reduce the settlement time and lower the cost of completing global payments for businesses and consumers. Furthermore, using IBM Blockchain, and in collaboration with technology partners Stellar.org and KlickEx Group, the solution intended to improve the speed in which banks both clear and settle payment transactions on a single network in near real-time.

Furthermore, various companies across U.S. are planning to launch regulated banks for crypto industry using the blockchain technology. For instance, on September 2022, crypto services firm Abra announced that it is in the process of launching Abra Bank, a U.S. state-chartered institution and, potentially, the crypto industry's first regulated bank. It would allow customers in the U.S. to deposit and bank digital assets while also offering valuable access to fiat on- and off-ramps. Further, it also plans to launch Abra International, a fully regulated digital asset business that will deliver similar banking services for its customers outside the U.S. using blockchain technology.

Top Impacting Factors

Increase in Adoption of Blockchain Technology by Banks

The increasing adoption of blockchain in retail banking and the rise in use of cryptocurrency is propelling the growth of the blockchain in retail banking market. Further, major companies operating in the retail banking are adopting the use of blockchain to help reduce fraudulent transactions, such as the use of smart contracts, which allow the buyer and seller to create if/then contracts in which one step of the process won’t be fulfilled until the one before it has been verified completely. Blockchain also aids in confirming the legality of each step in the supply chain process, and it offers security due to its non-repudiation and deregulation of data storage, which aids in preventing the theft of corporate assets. For instance, in March 2021, IntellectEU, a US-based technology company focused on digital finance, collaborated with KPMG to develop the ClaimShare solution, which uses enterprise blockchain, R3 Corda, in combination with R3’s new software technology, Conclave. Conclave allows confidential computing, by which insurers can’t share detailed information about claims without the other insurer seeing them. Thus, the increase in adoption of blockchain technology by retailers is fueling the growth of blockchain in retail banking market.
