Industry Dynamics

Industry Trends

The rising trend towards technological development like the integration of connected devices along with IoT and AI solutions will propel the growth of the RegTech market. These technologies are adopted so as to automate employee surveillance, enhance transparency, comply with data management, and prevent fraud and AML activities.

Cost and time savings: RegTech solutions help businesses automate compliance processes, reducing the time and resources required to meet regulatory obligations.

Data-driven insights: RegTech leverages data analytics and AI to provide real-time insights into compliance risks and issues, enabling proactive risk management and compliance monitoring.

Digital transformation: The growing digitization of industries and the need for digital records and reporting make RegTech solutions essential for efficient regulatory compliance.

Enhanced customer experience: RegTech solutions streamline compliance processes, reducing friction and improving the overall customer experience.

Growth Drivers

The substantial growth in the BFSI industry globally will offer a positive framework for the market. The rising incidences of fraudulent activities over the internet that might lead to financial losses will lead to market growth. RegTech helps in the precise detection of illicit activities and aids in minimizing errors owing to human intervention. The increased cost of compliance and surge in the need for faster transactions will fuel the growth of the RegTech market. Risk management processes, daily regulatory alert checks, risk control to actively limit risk, and specific Know Your Customer (KYC) and Anti Money Laundering (AML) compliance systems that maintain transparency are just a few of the primary RegTech solutions. Furthermore, the increased demand for regulatory intelligence and mounting penalties for non-compliance will propel the growth. RegTech offers the adoption of developed technologies like machine learning, biometrics, cloud computing, big data, and blockchain to the regulatory segment in order to adapt fast to the financial environment's tectonic shifts. Nevertheless, the rising demand to manage third-party cyber risk, robust expansion in collaboration between national regulators and financial institutions, resulting in improvement of regulatory openness, consistency, and standardization, and enhances quality at fewer costs.


When it comes to implementing RegTech, financial institutions will confront various obstacles. The most difficult challenge will be persuading senior executives and regulators that RegTech can lower risk and increase compliance. In a regulatory system that has traditionally relied on tiered employee assessment, arguments for the removal of direct human interaction in many procedures will face an uphill battle. Several financial institutions have faced regulatory actions and substantial fines in the past due to a lack of staff review; persuading these same institutions to "trust the computers" will require time and effort. Some of the other challenges that hinder the market growth of RegTech include guaranteeing secure data management, lack of technical knowledge regarding software deliverables, and privacy, as well as differing rules across jurisdictions.


Furthermore, in the coming years, mandatory application of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) in many parts of the world, as well as the untapped potential of emerging countries, are expected to create attractive prospects for RegTech solution providers.
