The global blockchain market size was USD 2.01 billion in 2019 and is projected to reach USD 69.04 billion by 2027, exhibiting a CAGR of 56.1% during the forecast period.

Blockchain is one of the technological trends in the ICT sector. The rising focus on the decentralization of data ledgers has led to the proliferation of blockchain. The market growth is attributed to the increasing demand for advanced platforms and solutions across industries such as BFSI, retail sector, and others, to develop personalized products and services.

Also, the increasing investments in various blockchain technology-based projects by countries such as Japan, the U.K., the U.S., and others are expected to drive the growth of the market. For instance, in 2019, the government of the Republic of Korea invested around USD 9.0 million to expand its blockchain technology across the public sector.

COVID-19 Impact

Implementation of Blockchain Solutions for Early Detection of COVID-19 to Spur Growth

The current COVID-19 pandemic is challenging the blockchain market in the short term. Blockchain can play a crucial role in accelerating digital transformation activities and initiatives amid this crisis. The technology can be used for public health data surveillance, crisis management, donation tracking, securing medical supply chains, and others. According to the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), the market will see a slight slowdown, with a decrease in technology spending by around 8% in 2020, as compared to the previous year. Governments and other corporate organizations are focusing on deploying innovative solutions to improve customer experience.

  • For instance, in March 2020, the World Health Organization (WHO) launched its blockchain program based on distributed ledger technology (DLT)– “MiPasa” to help convey data about the COVID-19 outbreak. It aims to help with the early detection of coronavirus and to identify hotspots and carriers.

Such active initiatives are expected to drive the demand for blockchain solutions in the coming years.

Rising Demand for Blockchain-as-a-service (BaaS) is a Current Trend

The increasing demand for cloud-based services among organizations is expected to be one of the key trends for the market. Blockchain-as-a-service (BaaS) helps organizations to adopt applications such as security management systems, and enterprise resource management systems, among others. The BaaS service allows customers to utilize, host, and develop their smart contracts, functions, and applications. To cater to the increasing demand for BaaS services, market players are focused on developing BaaS tools and services, by completing mergers & acquisitions and partnerships.

  • For instance, in May 2020, JD.com, Inc., a Chinese retail giant launched its new cloud-based blockchain-as-a-service (BaaS) platform. This platform is developed by JD Cloud & AI and JD Digits to provide ease of access for small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) and other companies.


Increasing Adoption of DLT System based on Advanced Analytics to Aid Growth

One of the emerging drivers for the blockchain market is the increasing adoption of the distributed ledger technology (DLT) system based on advanced data analytics. DLT is a decentralized system that is used to record transactions with secured mechanisms and advanced data analytics. Services based on the DLT system help to trade and monitor via digital currency. Key players across various countries including Germany, the U.S., and others are collaborating to develop advanced services based on DLT.

  • For instance, in October 2019, Accenture plc, SAP SE, and R3 Technology, Inc. collaborated and co-innovated to build a real-time gross settlement (RTGS) system that leverages DLT. It would enable efficient, reliable, secured, and faster payments between customers and banks.

With a rise in the adoption of DLT systems and research services, the market is expected to grow in the near future.


High Costs Involved at Initial Stage Proving to be an Inhibiting Factor for Growth

The blockchain technology market is growing at a rapid pace owing to its multi-tasking abilities across various applications. High venture capital funds and huge investments are required to set up specialized infrastructure and architecture. However, the setting up process and operability are much more complex and require experienced resources. This process also consumes a huge amount of bandwidth, energy, data centers, network components, cooling system, and others. Since blockchain technology is in its emerging stage, there are very limited startups and enterprises providing this. However, uncertain regulatory and government standards and the lack of funds and investment might hinder their usage.
