Growing Reinvestment Strategies By Key Players Across Healthcare Sector Amid Pandemic Aid Growth

The COVID-19 pandemic caused the closure of most production facilities, which disrupted the entire economy and investment in digital technology. Also, the novel coronavirus had a significant impact on digital ledger technology during the pandemic. Key players in the market have invested significantly and reconstructed their digital strategies that are anticipated to surge the demand for digital ledger technology post-pandemic. Also, the pandemic has accelerated the adoption of digital technology from the government to retail. Every sector has shifted toward digitalization to continue business operations. The rising adoption of cloud and Internet of Things devices has raised security and privacy issues across all verticals. The technology offers identity protection, transparency in supply chain operations, and protects health records. Thus, the increasing adoption of digital technologies is expected to expand the market share. For instance,

  • In April 2020, the World Health Organization collaborated with IBM, Microsoft, and Oracle Corporation to build a digital ledger-based, distributed data platform, MiPasa. MiPasa is designed by an enterprise, HACERA, to detect infection hotspots and COVID-19 carriers worldwide. In addition, it aims early detection of coronavirus and track data about the COVID-19 outbreak.


BaaS to Generate New Market Opportunities for Key Players in Market

The pandemic has generated an opportunity for cloud-based services by creating an innovative strategy for enterprises to give work-from-home access. The demand for cloud-based solutions to develop virtual work platforms has surged. As a result, there is an increasing demand for software across industries to ensure job continuity. BaaS is an ideal solution to the issues that small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) confront. SMEs employing cloud-based solutions are implementing distributed ledger-based services to safeguard digital entities and authenticate human identities, thereby increasing demand for BaaS products.


Rising Identity and Data Theft Activities to Surge Demand for Cryptographic Ledger Solutions

BFSI companies are adopting digital ledger technology to secure end-user’s financial data and identity. Technology applications, including cross-border transactions, clearing and settlements, trade finance platforms, digital identity verification, and credit reporting are gaining traction across the BFSI industry. This is expected to foster market growth. For instance-

  • In June 2021, India’ major banks, such as the State Bank of India(SBI), HDFC, ICICI Bank, and others, collaborated to establish Indian Bank’s digital ledger infrastructure company private limited, Indian Banks' Blockchain Infrastructure Co (IBBIC), to secure transactions, reduce transaction processing time, and speed up the process of letters of credit.

Therefore, the rising awareness of data protection from malware activities within enterprises and consumers is one of the emerging drivers projected to drive the blockchain market growth.


Lack of Skilled Professionals to Hinder Market Growth

Rising digital transformation among industries has increased various threats and cyberattacks. However, organizations face a lack of skilled professionals to overcome the situation of risk factors. Therefore, the adoption of technologically advanced solutions is slow and is anticipated to impact the market growth for the next few years. Further, developing countries, such as India, Peru, Mexico, among others, are facing lack of awareness about the risks associated with data protection. Therefore, the adoption of the technology is likely to be stagnant for a few years.
