May 2023 | Report Format: Electronic (PDF)

Non-fungible Token Market Growth & Trends

The global non-fungible token market size is expected to reach USD 211.72 billion by 2030, growing at a CAGR of 34.2% from 2023 to 2030, according to a new report by Grand View Research, Inc. The growing demand for digital art worldwide is one of the major factors driving the market growth. Digital art is defined as the art that is displayed or created using digital technologies.

The growing use of cryptocurrency globally is also anticipated to drive market growth. This is because cryptocurrency is used by people to purchase digital assets. According to CoinMarketCap, as of February 2022, the total global capitalization of cryptocurrency is USD 1.76 trillion, making it equivalent to the world’s 8th largest economy.

The market growth of non-fungible token (NFT) companies is further supported by the substantial funding they have raised. In August 2022, during a community event broadcast live, Collective Proof, a non-fungible token, announced that it had successfully raised USD 50 million in a Series A funding round. The funding round, led by a16z, saw the participation of several prominent investors, including Seven Seven Six, Collab+Currency, True Ventures, Flamingo DAO, SV Angel, and VaynerFund. This substantial investment comes as Proof prepares to launch its upcoming NFT collection, further solidifying its position in the NFT market.

The COVID-19 pandemic is expected to impact the market positively over the forecast period. The restrictions imposed during the pandemic confined people at homes and limited their sources of income. As a result, NFT-based gaming platforms such as Axie Game have gained increased popularity as they help people earn income amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
