Fintech Lender Platform Revenue will Reach $10.5 Billion

There are numerous factors driving the adoption of financial technology (fintech) market development. Particularly within emerging nations, technology vendors and service providers are looking at ways to provide services to individuals who previously have never used financial services -- they're often referred to as the un-banked population.

Fintech platform revenues to support lending and financing are set to reach $10.5 billion globally by 2020, doubling the $5.2 billion expected this year, according to the latest worldwide market study by Juniper Research.

The analyst has predicted that growth would be driven by a combination of factors including an acceleration in peer-to-peer (P2P) lending, crowdfunding becoming a viable alternative to traditional lending mechanisms, and the deployment of next generation analytics platforms.

Fintech Market Development Opportunities

The study findings uncovered that, in the absence of credit checking bureaus in emerging markets, a credit applicant's social media activity will be a deciding factor for their loan applications, with suppliers developing equivalents to credit scores so that lenders can gauge their risk exposure.

Nevertheless, the research also cautioned that the process might meet with greater consumer resistance in developed markets, with many would-be applicants likely to perceive the practice as an unwarranted invasion of privacy.


Meanwhile, the research results indicate that in North America and Europe crowdfunding platforms would increasingly provide opportunities for affluent individuals to obtain a stake in promising start-ups.

Juniper has argued that with interest rates at record lows across the developed world, crowdfunding and P2P lending platforms offer individuals attractive alternatives to traditional investments.

Outlook for Fintech Crowdfunding 

However, even if some of the analytics platforms would be sufficiently sophisticated to understand the nuances of distinct corporate operating environments, they might not be able to provide full evaluations of their respective management teams.

"Platform providers need to be transparent about how they assess firms and not just sell the tantalizing potential of funding the next Facebook. We are yet to witness a blockbuster exit for investors, but a successful IPO would cement crowdfunding's foothold in the marketplace,” said Michael Larner, analyst at Juniper Research.

How the COVID-19 Pandemic Advanced Telehealth Adoption

The global COVID-19 pandemic has accelerated digital transformation across many industries. As an example, consider the healthcare sector. Some routine medical situations can be diagnosed and resolved online. While the trend was already in motion long before the pandemic arrived, the adoption of telehealth increased rapidly in 2020. Around the world, many governments responded to the disruption and inaccessibility of healthcare facilities by loosening previous regulations and restrictions on the practice of telemedicine apps, and teleconsultations. This decision resulted in the mass adoption of these medical services among patients and providers. According to the latest market study by Juniper Research, telemedicine will save the healthcare industry $21 billion in costs by 2025 -- that's rising from an estimated $11 billion in 2021. This increased app usage represents an anticipated growth rate of over 80 percent in the next four years. Telehealth Services Market Development The co

How Edge Computing and AI Applications Drive IoT

The global pandemic has accelerated the adoption of emerging technologies, including edge computing and TinyML. As more CIOs and CTOs seek ways to capture and process data at the edge of their enterprise IT network, the demand has fueled investment for Internet of Things (IoT) applications. According to the latest worldwide market study by ABI Research, the global edge Artificial Intelligence (AI), Software-as-a-Service (SaaS), and turnkey service market will grow at a CAGR of 46 percent between 2020 and 2025 to reach $7.2 billion. This is 25 percent of the global edge AI market, which is estimated to be $28 billion by 2025. The market is comprised of edge AI chipsets, SaaS, and turnkey services, as well as professional services. As the benefits of edge AI becomes more obvious, enterprises are searching for edge AI solutions that offer low latency and are fully secured to assist them with data-based analysis or decision-making. Edge Artificial Intelligence Market Development "The

Worldwide Semiconductor Demand will Accelerate in 2021

The technology sector is a key driver of the U.S. economy. Therefore, components like semiconductors play an important role in America's future. The 'CHIPS for America Act' is a new law that calls for incentives on domestic semiconductor manufacturing and investments in research and development. But these renewed efforts will require years of ongoing commitment. Meanwhile, despite the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, the semiconductor market performed well in 2020. However, new demand by industry was uneven throughout last year due to global lockdowns, remote working adoption, and shifts in consumer and commercial buying behavior. Worldwide semiconductor revenue grew to $464 billion in 2020 -- that's an increase of 10.8 percent compared to 2019, according to the latest market study by International Data Corporation (IDC). Semiconductor Technology Market Development IDC now forecasts that the semiconductor market will reach $522 billion in 2021, that's a 12.5 percent
