According to the report titled “Global Blockchain Market”, published by Actual Market Research, the Blockchain is expected to reach more than $40 Billion in the year 2022. It is expected to expand at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of more than 50% from 2022 to 2027. Blockchain was introduced in October 2008 as part of a proposal for bitcoin, a virtual currency system that has central authority for issuing currency, transferring ownership, and confirming transactions. 

Blockchain is a decentralized database that stores transactions on millions of computers worldwide. Blockchain stores information electronically in digital format. Blockchain collects information in groups, called blocks, that store sets of information. Blocks have specific storage capacities and, when filled, are closed and linked to the previously served block, forming a chain of data known as the Blockchain. Newly added information that freshly added block is compiled into a newly formed block that will be added to the chain.

Blockchain is used for exchanges which allow for faster and less expensive transactions. In addition, a decentralized exchange does not require investors to deposit their assets with the centralized authority, which means they maintain control and security. Smart contracts are programs stored on a Blockchain that runs when predetermined conditions are met.

Factors such as Growing Individualism, Data Theft Activities, rising Venture Capital funding, and legalization of cryptocurrencies will drive the blockchain market.

BFSI companies are adopting digital ledger technology to secure end-users financial data and identity. Technology applications, including cross-border transactions, clearing and settlements, trade finance platforms, digital identity verification, and credit reporting, are gaining traction across the BFSI industry. For instance- In 2021, India' major banks, such as the State Bank of India(SBI), HDFC, ICICI Bank, and others, collaborated to establish Indian Bank's digital ledger infrastructure company private limited, Indian Banks' Blockchain Infrastructure Co (IBBIC), to secure transactions, reduce transaction processing time, and speed up the process of letters of credit.

Bitcoin boosted the growth of blockchain technology as multiple financial organizations use it for transaction purposes. The adoption of blockchain technology solutions has gained huge popularity in the last few years for various business applications, such as payments, exchanges, smart contracts, documentation, and digital identity. Multiple startups have penetrated this market and started developing blockchain technology solutions. These startups include Auxesis Group, Blockpoint, SpinSys, Symbiont, Bitfury, Confirm, Genomes, Neufund, Fetch.AI, CiveQ, and QubiTech, among many others.

The growing demand for digital identity is fueling the expansion of the Blockchain Technology Market. The various identity platforms based on blockchain technology have multiple applications in countries with weak identification procedures and unregulated countries. Many governments have used blockchain technology at a national level with their e-citizen programs. Therefore, these countries have developed identity-related techniques and successfully minimized the bureaucracy. Furthermore, this technology has helped them digitalize all public transactions via safe digital identities.

Legalizing cryptocurrencies is considered a significant factor in propelling industry evolution forwards as companies and investors are more likely to fund blockchain technology. Legalized cryptocurrencies also move market participants to put in more effort to improve their services to acquire a competitive advantage. Shortly, these companies' actions are projected to make blockchain technology more effective and efficient.

With the development of blockchain technology, some restrainers are restricting the market's growth. Increasing digital transformation among industries has raised various threats and cyberattacks. However, organizations face a shortage of skilled professionals to overcome the situation of risk factors. Thus, the adoption of technologically advanced solutions is slow and is expected to impact the market growth for the next few years.

Regulatory uncertainty remains a problem in the blockchain market. Currently, the lack of regulations and the resulting delays continue to be some of the most significant restraining factors for the adoption of blockchain among most verticals. Some countries have banned the use of ICOs. Regulatory acceptance is one of the most critical challenges in transforming transaction systems. With constant advancements, regulatory bodies need to understand what the current regulations lack and how they affect the overall technological applications.
