Robust Growth Opportunities Amid COVID-19 Pandemic Propelled Market Development
Automated banking software has benefited banks over the past few years. However, with the advent of the COVID-19 pandemic, the market witnessed a steady rise in 2020. This rise is attributed to the cashless transactions adopted due to governments enforcing lockdown restrictions worldwide.
Additionally, the rise in the usage of e-commerce due to the pandemic and the increase in online transactions across the globe escalated the usage of reconciliation solutions during the pandemic. Furthermore, integrating advanced technologies such as AR/VR and artificial intelligence (AI), among others, has enhanced the solution's capabilities. Thus, the market is anticipated to flourish in the upcoming years after the recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic globally. Thereby promising healthy growth for the market.
Along with this, the rise in demand for e-commerce services and early adoption of neobanks across the BFSI sector expects the global account reconciliation software market size in the upcoming years to grow significantly.

Integration of Advanced Technologies in Reconciliation Software to Support Market Expansion
Digitization has been rising daily across all industry verticals. Rapidly transforming financial services ensure a growing customer base and advanced capabilities of solutions. According to a survey conducted by Deloitte, the most widely implemented technology in the banking sector covered by the study is the cloud, which accounted for about 45%, followed by business intelligence at 37%.
Companies are investing in advanced technology such as artificial intelligence to benefit from these enhanced features and cope with rapidly changing user preferences. For instance, in December 2021, Xero enhanced its existing reconciliation solution with an artificial intelligence-based bank reconciliation prediction feature. This feature predicts contact and account codes for business transactions that cannot be tied to specific bills or invoices. Thus, the rising amount of innovative software across the globe is expected to drive the market in the coming years.
Growing Volume of Security Breaches and Frauds to Accelerate the Adoption of Reconciliation Solutions
The rising volume of security breaches and frauds has crippled several industries across the globe. In financial sectors, fintech-related frauds have showcased a higher percentage than in other industries. According to PwC’s Global Economic Crime and Fraud Survey, financial services experienced 44% of customer fraud. Along with this, 38% experienced cybercrime in 2022.
Banks and financial institutes are increasingly adopting reconciliation solutions to mitigate these security breaches. Reconciliation tools help prevent bank losses and disputes due to lack of reconciliation of incomplete and reversed transactions. Adopting an automated banking solution can simplify operations, facilitate resolving and identifying bottlenecks, and optimize efforts. It allows standardization of procedures and prioritization & supervision of key accounts, leading to real-time information and analysis delivery, benefiting strategic business decision-making.
Thus, an increase in financial services fraud drives the global account reconciliation software market growth in the recent years.
Rising Number of Strategic Alliances Among Key Players to Aid Market Augmentation
Strategic collaborations and partnerships are a boon for any business’s internal growth. Key market players are increasingly engaging in strategic alliances to enhance their existing solutions with the capabilities of the partnered firm. This strategy adopted by market players helps them reach a huge customer base, positively impacting their position in the reconciliation ecosystem.
Several companies, including Trintech, ReconArt, and Gresham Technologies plc are collaborating with major reconciliation players worldwide to boost their portfolio and offerings.
For instance, in April 2022, ReconArt expanded its partnership relations across the Asia Pacific region. The company's technologically advanced account reconciliation and transaction matching platform is gaining acclamation and visibility among financial management consultants and technology integrators in Hong Kong, Indonesia, India, Vietnam, and Pakistan.
Higher Premium Cost of Reconciliation Solutions to Hinder Market Growth
The market is likely to be hindered by the high cost of reconciliation software. Along with this, freely available solutions lure small businesses to conduct their basic reconciliation processes. Most small businesses cannot invest in high-premium software tools. Instead, these businesses tend to adopt freely available solutions. Thus, the higher premium cost of reconciliation solutions and the availability of free solutions could limit the market development during the forecast duration.
On-premises Segment to Dominate Due to Better Data Security
Based on deployment, the market share is bifurcated into cloud and on-premises. The on-premises deployment of reconciliation software has been dominating the market in recent years. This demand is due to the better data security and higher rate of adoption of the software among the SME’s.
On the flip side, the cloud segment is expected to thrive at an accelerated pace in the upcoming years. Neo banking is an emerging concept in the banking sector. The popularity of neo-banking has grown significantly during the COVID-19 pandemic. Social distancing norms during the pandemic and increased reliance on technology have pushed users to embrace digital banking instead of traditional banking to fulfill their financial needs. This adoption has surged the demand for cloud-based reconciliation solutions at a rapid pace.
Rising Popularity of Reconciliation Software to Provide Large Enterprises Significant Traction
By enterprise size, the global reconciliation software market share is bifurcated into Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (SMEs) and large enterprises. The large enterprises are expected to hold the largest share in 2022. An automated banking solution enables large businesses to eliminate human error and provide efficient reconciliation capabilities.
SME’s are expected to rise at a steady CAGR during 2023-2030 owing to the growing demand for cloud based reconciliation services.

Market Share to Rise Due to Rising Adoption of Reconciliation Solutions across Banks
In terms of end-use, the market share is segmented into banks, financial institutions, and insurance. Banks segment is anticipated to capture the largest market share in 2022.

According to an EY survey, up to 59% of a financial sector's tools and resources are spent managing transaction-intensive processes.

It includes a recorded trail of all reconciliation activity for the internal and external auditors, enhancing the reconciliation processes and reducing the security issues accompanying the process. Thus, these advantages over traditional processes have surged software adoption among banking sectors. Along with holding the largest market share in 2022, the banks are expected to hold similar dominance in upcoming years.
