Rising Focus Toward the Development of Advanced Banking Systems Amid COVID-19 Pandemic Bolstered Market Growth
The pandemic forced numerous banks and other financial institutes and their employees to adopt the WFH (work from home) policy. The COVID-19 crisis caused a significant shift in the worldwide financial market, as the financial industry is grappling with abrupt changes in interest rates and deferred rent payments. Thus, it is challenging for many financial institutions and banks to restore the changes in the overall credit and loan management scenario owing to the current pandemic. According to the IDC COVID-19 Impact Report, less than 20% of the financial institutions globally report being back to a “new normal”. Additionally, the study revealed that 89% of the banks in North America, and 83% of banks in Europe and MEA continue to enhance operational resilience. In contrast, 77% of banks in Asia Pacific, where the pandemic had an earlier impact, had resumed their emphasis on innovation and implementation of core banking solutions for long-term transformative projects.
Thus, the COVID-19 pandemic slightly hampered the market due to imposed restrictions. However, as the restrictions relaxed, the market presented a healthy growth rate, which further propels the market.
