Top Impacting Factors

Increased Adoption of Advance Technologies

The RegTech industry has become the fastest adopter of technologies such as cloud computing, application programming interfaces (APIs), data analytics, artificial intelligence, robotic process automation (RPA), chatbots, machine learning, and blockchain. In addition, significant requirements to improve the quality of reported data across various regimes & jurisdictions are experiencing growth with the changing country regulatory and government policy.

Furthermore, several regulatory bodies are implementing advance technologies and providing integrated and value-added services to maintain associated demand for the digital processing of regulations. Moreover, the RegTech solutions frequently use automation and artificial intelligence (AI) technology to process and analyze massive volumes of regulatory data. This reduces the amount of manual labor necessary for compliance duties, reduces errors, and allows for faster and more accurate decision-making. Therefore, adoption & implementation of technologies to reduce operational cost, maintain security, and provide convenience & efficiency services drive the RegTech market demand.

Increased Collaboration between National Regulators & Financial Institutions

Regulatory bodies across Asia-Pacific, the U.S., and the European region are continuously looking forward for collaboration with the fintech community globally. In addition, this robust inclination between the fintech community & regulators to collaborate aims at a win-win for business and governments alike. For instance, the Global Financial Innovation Network (GFIN) which was formally launched in January 2019 by an international group of financial regulators & related organizations, committed to supporting financial innovation in the interests of consumers. Moreover, GFIN seeks to provide efficient solutions for innovative firms to interact with regulators, helping them with new business models across more than one jurisdiction. Therefore, this increased collaboration between national regulators & financial institution propels the RegTech market growth during the forecast period.

Varied and Conflicting Regulations Across Different Jurisdictions

Various laws set different standards & regulation across different jurisdictions with an increased unified approach taken by financial centers toward regulation. This becomes a crucial factor for RegTech companies to elaborate solutions across manifold regulations such as MiFID II, GDPR, and others which brings an inter-regulation conflict and therefore hinders the growth of the  market. For instance, in the U.S., banks stand by the Dodd-Frank Act, while in Europe MiFID II regulations are considered for businesses under its jurisdiction. Furthermore, the solutions frequently necessitate significant investments in R&D and testing. Developing solutions that can accommodate the complexities of numerous regulatory systems raises the costs for RegTech firms. They must account for differences in data formats, reporting standards, and legal interpretations, which can stifle innovation and make providing cost-effective solutions more difficult. Therefore, higher development costs in varied and conflicting regulation across different jurisdiction are hamper the RegTech industry.

Increased General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) Concerns Across Regions

RegTech solutions are disrupting the regulatory landscape by providing technologically advanced solutions within the financial industry. In addition, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) guidelines become a mandatory application over the consumers personal data. It governs the use of personal data and introduces a right for individuals to object to profiling, which is therefore expected to create lucrative opportunities for the market in terms of gaining trust & build service loyalty in the market. Furthermore, the GDPR prohibits the transfer of personal data outside the EU to countries that are not regarded to have an appropriate degree of data protection. This has an impact on businesses that operate abroad and move data between jurisdictions. RegTech solutions that provide encryption, secure data storage, and compliance checks can assist organizations in navigating these cross-border data transmission problems. Therefore, with GDPR requirements, the solution providers have an opportunity to improvise technology implications by taking the GDPR into account, which is expected to boost the RegTech market opportunities in the upcoming years.
