The global core banking software market size was valued at USD 14.54 billion in 2023. The market is projected to grow from USD 17.00 billion in 2024 to USD 62.75 billion by 2032, exhibiting a CAGR of 17.7% during the forecast period.

In the scope, we have considered core banking solutions provided by key players, such as Temenos Transact, TCS BaNCS, Flexcube, FIS Profile, SAP Transactional Banking, and Finacle Core Banking Solution.

Core Banking Software (CBS) is a back-end solution that banking organizations deploy to maintain the flow of banking activities such as transactions, payments, and other financial records. It offers online centralized banking activities to users in real-time. Various banks are implementing CBS to assist their users in performing multiple bank-related activities such as debts, loan processes, money transactions, and access to their respective accounts. The increasing investments by key players in fintech technologies, CBS, and others are expected to drive the growth of the market. In addition, the rising need for the management of customer accounts from a single server is set to boost the core banking software market growth.  

The COVID-19 pandemic forced numerous banks, 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.

Core Banking Software Market Trends

Increasing Adoption of Artificial Intelligence-based Banking Systems is a Current Trend

The rising adoption of technologies such as the cloud, Big Data, and Artificial Intelligence (AI) is changing the landscape of the banking industry. The integration of such technologies with the banking process assists in advancing their visualization capabilities, resolving customer queries, and making complicated data usable. The technologies help in increasing connectivity and providing advanced security methods in banks & financial institutions. According to SAS insights, 30% of the employees in the banking industry rely on and trust AI-driven outputs and utilize them for enhanced business analysis. AI-powered chatbots and virtual assistants are integrated into core banking software to provide round-the-clock customer support. These AI-driven systems can help users troubleshoot issues in real-time, enhancing the overall customer experience.

The AI-based core banking software provides real-time insights to end-users and helps improve network security, accelerating digital businesses and offering a better consumer experience. The rising adoption of such technologies is expected to create various opportunities for players in the market. Key companies focus on completing partnerships and collaborations with other players to launch advanced solutions on the basis of core technologies such as AI and others. For instance, in January 2022, Temenos AG launched its Buy-Now-Pay-Later (BNPL) banking service. The service will create an opportunity for banks and fintechs to generate more revenue and help them build their relationship with customers and merchants.

Core Banking Software Market Growth Factors

Rising Adoption of Cloud-based Solutions among Enterprises to Aid Growth

One of the significant market drivers is the rising adoption of SaaS-based or cloud-based banking platforms provided by software specialists such as Finastra, FIS Global, and Temenos AG. Cloud-based platforms allow banking organizations to monitor payments, transactions, and other banking activities. Thus, the rising demand for productivity and improvement in enterprises will encourage the growth of the market. Key players are focusing on launching new products to gain a competitive edge in the market. For instance, in January 2023, Kenya-based Fintech Company – Kwara acquired IRNET Coop to deploy a cloud-based core banking platform. It also gained its existing consumer base as IRNET was a subordinate partner of the Kenya Union of Savings and Credit Cooperatives (KUSCC). These new products would provide comprehensive banking functionality to its consumers. It aims to accelerate the adoption of the cloud among enterprises. Cloud-based solutions eliminate the need for banks to invest in and maintain on-premises hardware, reducing capital expenditures and operational costs. Banks can leverage the pay-as-you-go pricing model of cloud computing, paying only for the resources and services they consume. This cost-efficient approach allows banks to allocate resources more effectively, optimize IT spending, and achieve greater cost predictability over time.

According to Enterprise Cloud Index (ECI) 2022, cloud adoption in BFSI industries is expected to double in three years, boosting the market from 26% to 56%. Therefore, the rising adoption of cloud-based solutions and banking platforms by various banks is expected to drive market growth in the forthcoming years. Also, the rising usage of Big Data, Payment as a Service (PaaS), cyber security, and remote banking solutions is expected to boost the market expansion during the forecast period.


Information Security and Privacy Concerns Associated with Banking Systems May Hinder Market Growth

With the soaring popularity of advanced core banking software, security concerns about unencrypted data, application vulnerabilities, mobile malware, and information loss are also increasing. Information security and privacy concerns can reduce the revenues in credit unions, corporate banks, and financial institutes. Privacy concerns arise regarding who has access to consumer data and how it is used within banking optimization. Unauthorized access to customer information by employees, contractors, or third-party service providers can compromise privacy and confidentiality. Implementing strict access controls, role-based permissions, and auditing mechanisms helps restrict data access to authorized personnel and track data usage to prevent misuse or unauthorized disclosures. According to the IBM X-force 2021 report, 22.4% of cyber-attacks were targeted toward financial and insurance organizations. Out of these attacks, 70% were directed toward banks, 16% were aimed at insurance organizations, and the remaining 14% were targeted at other financial organizations. Thus, with growing advancements, the concern for data safety is increasing.
