The global anti-money laundering software market size was valued at USD 1.65 billion in 2021 and is projected to grow from USD 1.82 billion in 2022 to USD 4.31 billion by 2029, exhibiting a CAGR of 13.0% during the forecast period. Based on our analysis, the global anti-money laundering software market exhibited an average growth of 8.5% in 2020 as compared to 2019.

Anti-Money Laundering (AML) software offers assistance to regulated organizations and financial institutions to prevent, report, and detect money laundering related misconducts in compliance with the requirements from financial regulators. This software uses the information from various solutions for managing financial transactions such as accounting software and ERP systems.

The global anti-money laundering software market growth can be attributed to several factors such as technological development of solutions for robust detection and rising importance of transaction monitoring among consumers. In addition, growth in IT spending, focus of financial institutions on digital payment related issues, and flow of investments by enterprises positively affect the global market.


Emergence of the COVID-19 Pandemic Increased the Investments and Collaborations for the Development of AML Software

The COVID-19 pandemic accelerated the adoption of digital services such as contactless payments, e-payment, online banking, and others, resulting in generation of huge volumes of customer data.

However, many financial service firms faced a remarkable increase in identity fraud through ransomware, synthetic identity, mobile device attacks, and other threats, which led to significant financial losses, hindering the anti-money laundering software growth for a short period of time.

According to the Anti-Money Laundering Preparedness Survey Report 2020 by Deloitte, a survey was conducted which included leading banks around South Asia to understand the challenges faced by banks in their Anti-Money Laundering (AML) compliance programs. According to the survey, it stated that around 45% of the banks are facing technological challenges due to integration with core banking systems. Also, 46% of the existing systems are unable to cover products and businesses in the transaction monitoring systems for a short period of time.

According to the Financial Action Task Force (FATF) report, governments and institutions around the globe are making efforts to combat money laundering. Also, various private sectors and regulators are collaborating to minimize the adverse effects of money laundering by offering cutting edge technology. Private and public sectors are deploying anti-money laundering solutions in the form of digital onboarding of customers.

Thus, growing funding and collaboration are projected to create substantial market opportunities in the coming years.

Growing Adoption of Real-time Transactions Monitoring and RegTech Automation Acts as a Key Trend

Real-time transaction monitoring analyzes customer transactions and behavior that involves the investigation of previous and current customer data and interactions to provide a complete picture of their activity in real-time. Transaction monitoring feature of anti-money laundering software enables organizations to detect financial crimes before they occur or at an early stage. The adoption of real-time transaction monitoring in anti-money laundering helps financial institutions to detect potential instances of financial crime and intervene by preventing it from occurring at the point in time. For instance,

  • In November 2022, ClearBank announced a partnership with ThetaRay, a fintech software and Big Data analytics solution provider, to change its AML monitoring operations to a fully cloud-native program with ThetaRay’s SONAR (SaaS) AML solution.

Similarly, RegTech (Regulatory Technology) offers banks and other financial institutions access to intelligent tools and processes that automate data collection, analysis, and visualization. RegTech assists banks to onboard customers faster, more effectively and with less customer contact. The emergence of AI RegTech solutions in the banking system is likely to surge the demand for anti-money laundering software in the coming years. For instance,

  • In October 2022, RegTech firm, Salv deployed its AML solutions into Tuum, an API-first and modular core banking platform. Tuum will deploy anti-money laundering management software to help the customers to quickly carry out an AML platform with risk-scoring solutions and advanced monitoring screening.


 Adoption of Big Data Analytics in Anti-Money Laundering Solutions to Fuel the Market Growth

The increasing adoption of Big Data analytics helps enterprises to analyze businesses that can spot patterns and extract valuable insights from these data sets. Leveraging Big Data analytics is anticipated to create demand for anti-money laundering software. For instance,

  • In November 2022, Coinfirm partnered with Sanction Scanner to provide compliance knowledge and advantages in the blockchain with traditional finance ecosystems. This partnership will ensure customers can monitor and scan transactions mediated by their companies both for fiat money and crypto assets.

Similarly, Big Data analytics is an ultimate tool for AML compliance as it can be personalized to improve and automate many AML compliance processes. Big Data analytics also helps to reduce the risk, detect fraud patterns and any data quality issues that lead to false positives.

The Big Data analytics solutions help financial institutions to examine current regulatory rules in terms of in-depth data. It helps to analyze customer’s onboarding, information of transactions, and fulfill the requirements associated with regulatory authorities. It also helps to identify the risks or problems in real-time and avoid potential breaches of rules before supervisory authorities.


High Cost and Operational Process to Hinder the Market Growth

High costs related with the deployment of software and complications associated with it are limiting the ability of early detection of fraudulent activities. Adapting practices to new and sometimes untested systems or technology solutions creates operational challenges.

Also, small & medium sized fintech companies often lack internal capacity or assurance to estimate the effectiveness of advanced solutions among a wide growing range of competing vendors and products, thereby creating major challenges in operating the solutions.

Thus, the aforementioned factors may hamper the anti-money laundering software market growth.
