Report Overview

The global core banking software market size was valued at USD 9.42 billion in 2019 and is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 7.5% from 2020 to 2027. Numerous groups of networked banks are deploying core banking solutions to allow customers to perform various banking activities, such as money transactions, loans, debts, and access to their accounts. Core banking software is also adopted by multiple banks for enhancing their risk management capabilities and for an easy flow of banking activities. Furthermore, core banking software allows bank managers to monitor transaction activities from any bank branch. Increasing customer demand for advanced banking technologies is expected to propel the market over the forecast period. Core banking software solutions are built on advanced web technologies. Their open-system and platform-independent architecture offer clients the freedom to choose the software and hardware infrastructure of their preference.

These solutions also enable smooth integration with existing systems of banks and financial institutions. The growing demand for cost-effective banking solutions is anticipated to fuel market growth over the forecast period. A core banking approach allows customers to get access to banking services through multiple channels, such as web and mobile banking, while also allowing them to conduct their banking activities from any branch location. Customers benefit in terms of flexibility and quicker services via core banking solutions as access to the entire range of banking activities is available irrespective of the location of their home branch.

Core banking software allows banks to seamlessly merge back-office data and self-service operations. Technologies, such as artificial intelligence, blockchain, big data, and mobility are evolving rapidly, disrupting the prevalent business models of financial institutions and banks. Advancements in core banking technology are raising staff efficiency and reducing manual work significantly. Furthermore, banks are widely adopting innovative technologies to attract new-age customers and reap better growth prospects from cutting edge technologies such as blockchain data analytics and machine learning. Adoption of these technologies is also allowing banks and financial institutions to future proof their offerings and services.

However, the lack of awareness among businesses about modern banking technologies is expected to hamper the market growth. The COVID-19 pandemic is also anticipated to adversely impact the market to a certain extent in the near future. The pandemic has led to a major repositioning in the global financial market as the financial sector is struggling with delayed lease payments and sudden changes in interest rates. In these times, the challenge for many financial institutions and banks is how to operationalize the changes in the overall credit management scenario brought by the current situation. Several loan accounting and core banking systems are not set up for this type of operational flexibility at scale.

Solution Insights

The enterprise customer solutions segment led the market and accounted for more than 40.0% share of the global revenue in 2019. Enterprise customer solutions seamlessly integrate with CRM and ERP and administrate management tools and customer information through the central database of a bank. This helps banks and financial institutions achieve economies of scale by data integration for multiple purposes such as CRM, cross-selling, and regulatory reporting. These solutions help banks in expanding their reach and improving their functioning while reducing operational costs and offering a sole interface to control banking activities.

Core banking solutions allow inter-connectivity between branches of the same financial institution and bank and facilitate the management of loan, deposit, and credit processing. These solutions are integrated with a back-end system, which efficiently processes various banking transactions across the multiple branches of a bank. Furthermore, these solutions help customers in improving various banking activities, such as servicing loans, calculating interests, opening new floating accounts, and processing deposits and withdrawals. All the core banking solutions integrated bank branches are accessible to customers in real-time.

Service Insights

The professional service segment dominated the core banking software market and accounted for more than a 70.0% share of the global revenue in 2019. The growth can be attributed to the increasing need for support at every stage of the software deployment process, including the pre-implementation of scope and consulting, project management, and integration. Maintaining a full-time IT department can be expensive, inefficient, and time-consuming for small- to medium-sized businesses. Professional service providers offer on-demand support and resources at affordable IT service costs to small and medium enterprises, thereby fueling the segment growth.

The managed service segment is anticipated to register the highest growth over the forecast period. In a competitive environment, banks and financial institutions seek more value from IT investments. Moreover, core banking applications form the backbone of the IT landscape in financial institutions and banks and are required to be highly functional and agile to respond to changes. Managed service providers offer deep infrastructure support and maintenance capabilities to such highly functional IT landscapes, thereby creating growth opportunities for the segment.

Deployment Insights

The on-premise segment led the market and accounted for more than 60.0% share of the global revenue in 2019. When building an on-premise system, businesses assume the full responsibility of integration and any IT-related and security issues. Companies with legacy platforms are partnering with IT professionals for the data recovery process and to reduce security concerns and operational costs. This, as a result, is expected to drive the on-premise segment growth over the forecast period.

The cloud segment is anticipated to register the highest growth over the forecast period. According to the 2018 Core Provider Survey, financial institutions and banks are expected to adapt to cloud-based core banking systems, with 21% saying they would not consider it, 50% saying they were unsure, and 29% saying they would consider it. Businesses are focusing on adopting cloud-based solutions as any financial institution or bank relying on an on-premise infrastructure cannot compete against more innovative digital opponents. Implementing cloud technology automates workflows and operations, resulting in increased efficiency, cost savings, and security.

End-use Insights

The bank segment dominated the market and accounted for more than 55.0% share of the global revenue in 2019. The growth can be attributed to the vast advancements in information technology and internet connectivity across the globe. These technologies help banks in reducing manual work and increasing operational efficiency. The core banking software is installed at multiple bank branches and then interconnected by computer networks based on satellite, telephones, and the internet.

Europe core banking software market share

Network technology and core banking solutions allow banks to centralize record-keeping and permit access from any location.

Financial institutions are widely adopting core banking software to prevent theft and fraud with real-time banking facilities.

Regional Insights

North American region dominated the market and accounted for over 25.0% share of global revenue in 2019. The large-scale adoption of advanced core banking software by leading banks in the region is expected to fuel the growth. Furthermore, small and medium enterprises in the region are implementing these solutions for the effective flow of banking activities. Also, the rapidly increasing sizes of enterprises and the growing application area of these solutions are further anticipated to support the growth of the regional market over the forecast period.

Asia Pacific is expected to emerge as the fastest-growing regional market over the forecast period. Market growth in the Asia Pacific is likely to be primarily driven by the increasing adoption of mobile and web-based business applications in the banking sector. Furthermore, the growing economies of Asia Pacific countries, such as China and India, are expected to propel the adoption of core banking software in the region.
