Key Market Trends

BFSI Expected to Exhibit a Significant Rate of Adoption

  • Fraudulent activities in the industry have evolved over the decades. While it was previously limited to cheque frauds and wire frauds, with the growth of the cyber sphere and the accompanying expansion of the cybercriminal realm, it has taken on more virtualized forms.
  • The increasing technological penetration, coupled with digital channels such as internet banking and mobile banking, are becoming prominent choices of customers for banking services, making it a crucial need for banks to leverage fraud prevention solutions.
  • The fraud prevention and detection represents one of the biggest areas of concern for financial institutions and is likely to become one of the prominent drivers for IT spending. Moreover, online transactions fraud, insurance claim frauds, and card related frauds have been increasing the usage of these solutions in the insurance and banking and financial services sector.
  • The potential risk of fraud has been one of the biggest in online payments, which is anticipated to grow in tandem with the availability of digital customer relationships, as more companies are now offering online payments.
  • Out of all the industries, BFSI has been most prone to insiders/employees, in terms of the types of fraudulent activities. There have been multiple instances where employees have been accused of fraud (for instance, PNB fraud in India). In order to prevent these, the industry needs robust fraud detection and prevention solutions.
Fraud Detection and Prevention Market Key Trends

North America to Dominate the Market

  • Digital transactions in North America, coupled with the use of online banking, are increasing at a remarkable rate, thus, increasing the chances of fraud. The fraud detection and prevention solutions can help prevent any online breach of sensitive data and transactions. Increasing cases of fraud are expected to propel the market’s growth in the region over the forecast period.
  • Cybercriminals are increasingly targeting business and medical institutions to gain personal data of the victims. The personal data is then often used for socially engineering their attacks, which are more likely to trick the victim as compared to traditional cyberattacks. In fact, as of 2019, 75% of the total data breaches recorded in the United States were reported in the business and medical sectors.
  • In October 2019, the three healthcare providers operated by DCH Health Systems in the country were attacked by a ransomware strain known as Ryuk. All these healthcare centers have implemented emergency procedures to ensure the safety of their patients, and the company is working on attack diagnosis. Such cyberattacks are expected to increase in the country across domains, which may fuel the demand for prevention solutions in the market.
  • Additionally, the use of credit cards is highly prevalent in the region, particularly in the United States. In September 2017, one of the largest credit reporting agencies in the region, Equifax, announced a security breach, in which the data of about 143 million users was illegally accessed. Fraud detection and prevention measures are necessary to counter or mitigate risks in such instances.
