Global Statistics Representing IoT in Banking and Financial Services Market Scenario
IoT-embedded devices are expected to usher in automation across several legacy processes in the financial and banking sector. While many industries may have already grasped and embraced the benefits of IoT, the financial services industry is yet in the primary phase, where it is exploring the incorporation and advantages of IoT. In 2017, over 1000 bank branches ceased operations across the U.K. amid a lack of in-store innovation and tepid demand for customers. Therefore, the banking industry is in search of innovative service delivery avenues.
The increasing need for data gathering and data analysis is one of the most important factors driving the growth of IoT in banking and financial services. Today, almost every bank has a mobile app for banking, and these apps provide data at a large scale – helping the banking and financial industry analyze customer behavior and aiding the decision-making process. Digital sensors are another source of collecting customer information through ATMs and other automated devices placed in physical units to analyze customer behavior, which in turn helps banks come up with innovative ideas to serve customers.
Customer relationship management, personalized marketing, and cybersecurity are among the other factors fuelling the growth of the IoT in banking and financial services market. Tata Consultancy Services stated that “To understand and engage with customers, 65% of banking respondents use mobile apps and 16% track wearables”. IoT can help banks understand their present economic condition and offer services as per customer requirements from time to time, facilitating a healthy relationship with customers and better customer experience. IoT allows for increased security through encryption and authentication that only allows access to authorized individuals, including recognized customers and employees.
The IoT in banking and financial services market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 28.9% during the forecast period, 2019–2026.
