The global autonomous finance market was valued at USD 14.57 billion in 2021 and is expected to expand at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 16.8% from 2022 to 2030. Autonomous finance leaders are increasingly leaning towards autonomous finance solutions because they can enhance business processes, functions, and workflows through automation, leveraging self-learning software. The growth of autonomous finance operations can be attributed to various benefits provided to businesses, including cost-efficiency, reduction in system downtime, real-time data analytics & reporting, and scalability in operations without hiring additional staff. Technological development and automation through technologies such as Artificial Intelligence (AI), cloud services, and Robotic Process Automation (RPA) are being leveraged to develop digital processes and enhance the customer experience in obtaining digital and autonomous financial services.
The technological capabilities of autonomous finance fintech companies are expected to provide a first-mover advantage to early adopters. According to receeve GmbH, a debt recovery and collection platform, 89.0% of finance leaders within the BFSI industry believe that companies that adopt autonomous finance operations early would gain a significant competitive advantage over their peers. Autonomous finance is already being incorporated into various financial operations such as accounting, asset management, loan application processing, and liquidity management. The autonomous finance market is expected to grow as companies align to improve technology capabilities and customer experience.
Banks and financial institutions have raised investments in technologies such as Robotic Process Automation (RPA), blockchain, data analytics, and Artificial Intelligence (AI) to automate business processes. Global banks, including Barclays, Goldman Sachs, and Moelis, have resorted to automation of back-end processes to drive efficiency, reduce workload, and use employees efficiently for core functions.
Additionally, changing customer preferences for digital and omnichannel financial services accelerated during the pandemic. The primary factor causing this transition was the ability to access financial services remotely. The rise in digitization and the need for businesses to align with customers emerging needs are expected to drive market growth.
The changing customer preferences for real-time financial services are a primary driver for the growth of autonomous finance operations. Financial services providers are thus compelled to adapt to the latest customer needs. For instance, World pay Group, a payment processing company, allowed merchants to accept payments in cryptocurrency from consumers either online or in person. Ubiquitous payment methods such as digital wallets are a prominent illustration of the acceptance of digital payments. Moreover, innovation-driven through emerging technologies such as blockchain-based autonomous decentralized finance is expected to contribute to the autonomous finance market growth.
Data security and privacy concerns are increasingly threatening the autonomous finance market. Major challenges plaguing several customers include digital theft, cybercrime, and identity safety concerns. However, regulators seek transparency and competition in the digital financial services industry while ensuring customer protection. The data security and privacy concerns are expected to be tackled and thus reduced during the forecast period.
The Financial Services Industry (FSI) encountered significant changes due to COVID-19. As automation emerged as a key trend, the popularity of digital platforms significantly expanded throughout the pandemic, and consumers of all age groups preferred digital transactions while interacting with businesses. Although Robotic Process Automation (RPA) was already being used significantly in FSIs, the additional need to enable a remote workforce drove automation and is expected to play a more significant role in the FSI.
The COVID-19 outbreak compelled people to use digital services and phone transactions to avoid the usage of cash and the associated risk of infection. Additionally, autonomous finance fintech companies also provided customers the ability to earn passive income through staking digital assets such as cryptocurrencies leading to rising awareness and a growing customer base.
The auto payments segment dominated the market in 2021, accounting for a revenue share of more than 30.0%. A high penetration rate of smartphones has observed a rising preference for mobile banking and digital payments. Additionally, the Internet of Things (IoT) has led to a rise in connected devices enabling innovative payments. WORLDLINE, a digital payments company, reported 38.5 billion connected devices in 2020. Prevailing semi-autonomous payments and continuous innovation in the payments industry are expected to contribute to segment growth.
The asset management segment is anticipated to register significant growth during the forecast period. Autonomous asset management uses algorithms for automated asset and portfolio management. The ability of autonomous asset management to emulate human decision-making capabilities while sourcing the best execution rates for trades is the primary factor for segment growth. Autonomous software can also be used for stock analysis and forecasting. Users also benefit from reduced costs due to the elimination of intermediaries such as brokers.
The banks segment dominated the market in 2021 and accounted for a global revenue share of more than 35.0%. The pandemic outbreak witnessed banks resorting to collaborations to incorporate automation capabilities. Digitization of banking functions helps save critical time from manual activities. For instance, in August 2021, Arab National Bank partnered with RPA technology provider Automation Anywhere to automate back-end functions and saved over 40,000 manual work hours. The transforming business models and the rise in digital banks are expected to contribute to segment growth.
The financial institutions segment is anticipated to register the fastest growth during the forecast period. Financial firms are rapidly digitizing all services, including retail offerings, payment platforms, and wealth and capital management processes. Virtual channels like mobile banking, chat support, contact centers, email communications, and internet catalogs are replacing physical branches to enhance customer service, which automation has made possible. The benefits provided by autonomous finance to financial institutions are driving the growth of the segment.
North America dominated the autonomous finance market in 2021 and accounted for more than 29.0% of revenue. The North American region is characterized by an ecosystem encouraging the early adoption of innovative technology, including autonomous finance. Governments emphasize enabling a digital and sustainable finance infrastructure and driving purposeful governance.
Companies in the U.S. are collaborating to enhance digital capabilities. For instance, in February 2022, U.S. Bank partnered with Microsoft Corporation to improve its technology infrastructure and selected Microsoft Azure as the primary provider of cloud services to operate its applications.
Asia Pacific is expected to emerge as the fastest-growing market during the forecast period. The Asia Pacific regional market's growth can be attributed to the presence of many Internet of Things (IoT) based services and companies in the region. The region has favorable demographics with a high percentage of a young population.
The rising use of advanced technologies, such as artificial intelligence and machine learning, for the services such as asset management, digital identity authentication, and back-office procedures in several firms is anticipated to drive market growth in the region. The market opportunities are also expected to attract global investments in the region.
The autonomous finance market is characterized as a fragmented market.
