The global blockchain technology market is expected to reach USD 7.74 billion by 2024, according to a new report by Grand View Research, Inc. Blockchain is the underlying technology that originated in the form of a public ledger to keep a track of all cryptocurrency transactions. The technology serves for transaction-processing and record-keeping. Blockchain enables participants connected to the network, mostly public, to track information through a secure network, without the need of third-party verification.
The increasing adoption of the technology in the financial services sector and expected adoption across the public sector and healthcare segments are few of the major factors that are expected to fuel the demand for the said market.
The market is expected to grow rapidly owing to numerous benefits that it provides, such as eradication of the requirement of a financial institution to validate transactions, reduce duplicative record keeping, eliminate reconciliation, minimize error rates, and facilitate faster settlement. With the use of the said technology, the databases could become universal in nature, thereby allowing multiple institutions to use it at the same time to bring various different systems closer together and help increase the efficiency.
The increasing demand for this technology across financial services, consumer or industrial products, technology, media & telecom, healthcare, transportation, and public sector is largely responsible for driving the market toward growth.
The major drivers include the growing interest of the BFSI sector and increasing merchants accepting crypto currencies among others. The probable opportunity of this technology further includes the instant settlement of various financial transactions and achieving optimized settlement options for the netting and clearing process.
