Organizations must abide by the increasing number of regulations to tackle fraudulent activities. Since the number of fraudsters and fraudulent activities is increasing exponentially, and frauds are becoming more prevalent, the need to comply with regulations has become important to ensure the protection of organizations and their customers. Payment monitoring helps organizations to check real-time customer transactions for analyzing potential risks. Furthermore, various organizations are also using payment monitoring solutions during the pre-production phase for identifying various potential bottlenecks and mitigating risks before it occurs.

Payment monitoring is the process of reviewing, administering, and analyzing the transaction processed on a business application. The major function of payment monitoring is to observe customer transactions, which involves assessing customers’ current as well as historical information to provide a full view of the customer activity. It is mainly done to evaluate the overall performance of the transaction processing system and is used by the organizations for effectively and efficiently managing different types of transactions of the customer. These solutions help them to identify high-risk activities, protect customer business, and maintain the banking relationship, which is subsequently driving market growth.

Payment monitoring solutions offer great benefits to organizations; however, they require qualified and educated professionals with relevant experience in analytical and logical thinking and financial domain expertise. Presently, there is a lack of skilled solution development professionals such as statisticians, ethical hackers, data analysts, and data scientists. However, there are a lot of education programs being launched across different countries to train professionals in machine learning and analytics. For instance, education programs are launched by Upgrad and Unacademy to provide training on data science courses in India. This will help people to learn about analytics and machine learning, which would help in developing payment monitoring solutions and contribute to the payment monitoring market growth.

Furthermore, the integration of advanced technologies such as machine learning, Artificial Intelligence (AI), and big data with payment monitoring solutions is expected to provide lucrative opportunities for market growth. By using these technologies across the full transaction monitoring process, alerts can be auto-triggered leveraging machine learning; they can be auto-enriched with transaction, account, and customer information from internal and external data sources. Further, the Suspicious Activity Reports (SARs) can be auto-generated using Natural Language Generation (NLG). Hence, the organizations leveraging these technologies can bring down dependencies on human operators, reduce the total time taken, and allow personnel to focus on more valuable and complex activities. Thus, the integration of these technologies with payment monitoring solutions is anticipated to propel market growth over the forecast period.

Service Insights

The training and consulting service segment is anticipated to witness rapid growth over the forecast period. Increasing digitalization is pushing the demand for education programs for making the existing workforce effectively adapt to the evolving technological landscape. The introduction of new technologies followed by changing needs of the customers is leading to change in business operations, thus, driving the need among organizations to opt for training and consulting services to seek their support in identifying and addressing the inadequacies.

The support and maintenance service segment is expected to exhibit the fastest growth during the forecast period. Technology is changing rapidly, resulting in constant upgrades in the system. Payment monitoring solutions should be updated with the changing technologies as organizations need vendor support in case of technical issues. Payment monitoring follows several factors that need to be considered, such as understanding the technicalities, seamlessly importing/exporting data, and regularly updating the solutions. Furthermore, the growing trend of organizations adopting cloud-based operation services has promoted the growth of this segment.

Deployment Insights

The on-premise segment dominated the market in 2019 as it has enhanced security features while operating in organization premises. An on-premise solution offers total control over the software as all sensitive data is stored internally and there is no risk of exposing it to a third party. Payment monitoring solutions that highly rely on cloud services are exposed to service impairment or control loss, service breakdown, data breach, or financial loss. The user experience might also be affected by insecure network transmissions at some locations and this restricts the reach of cloud-based services and thus, the majority of organizations still prefer deploying the on-premises solution.

However, cloud deployment is expected to expand at a higher CAGR, as it helps in avoiding the costs associated with the software, hardware, storage, and technical staff. The cloud-based platform provides a unified way in the form of Software-as-a-Service (SaaS)-based security services to secure business applications. The cloud-based payment monitoring solution is simple to maintain and upgrade; thus, it is driving the segment growth. The deployment of cloud-based solutions promotes the ease of service delivery owing to its virtual presence that makes organizations to gain access to data across connected devices at any time. These benefits are expected to drive the adoption of cloud payment monitoring solutions across verticals.

Enterprise Size Insights

The Small and Medium enterprise (SME) segment is expected to grow at the highest CAGR over the forecast period. SMEs are mainly believed as a sector involving high risks as they are commonly used as a shell industry for different money laundering and financial crimes. Thus, advanced technologies such as big data analytics, artificial intelligence, and Machine Learning (ML) have been adopted by various SMEs for having adequacies and decreasing the fraudulent activities in their transaction monitoring system. Additionally, AI-based payment monitoring helps SMEs proactively monitor suspicious data and conform to regulations. All these factors are contributing to the growth of the market.

The large enterprise segment is expected to dominate the market over the forecast period. This can be attributed to the availability of high capital and affordability, allowing large organizations to adopt payment monitoring solutions. Large enterprises are more susceptible to information and financial losses. Hence, large enterprises are investing heavily in adopting various measures to safeguard their products, technologies, and capital.

Application Insights

The Anti-money Laundering (AML) segment has dominated the market in 2019 owing to the need for preventing money laundering activities across the world. The convergence of increased regulations and next-generation technologies that addresses AML across various organizations has propelled growth. Additionally, for organizations, it has become important to understand the significance of compliance and invest in AML technology to lessen the financial risk factors in business operations. Furthermore, Governments are making the implementation of AML solutions mandatory for organizations to avoid unlawful financing activities.

The fraud detection and prevention segment is expected to expand at the highest CAGR over the forecast period. The major factors that are expected to drive the market are increasing revenue losses for organizations owing to the increase in the use of electronic transactions and rising fraudulent attacks. Fraud detection and prevention helps in monitoring and analyzing data from several sources, detecting abnormalities, and suspicious and unusual behavior across all channels. It also detects frauds and enables robust information security to enhance compliance. Furthermore, the increasing adoption of technologies such as ML and AI for fraud detection could boost the demand for fraud detection and prevention solutions on a large scale.
