Fintech Faves; Open AI and IoT

A look at Open AI and Internet of Things Activities in 2022

Accenture, a consultancy firm, has examined the situation of FinTech during the epidemic. According to this forecast, organizations who have previously made investments in digital platforms, are ambitious and have access to trusted partners and the proper tools are more likely to dominate their respective markets.

Venture Scanner estimates that investments in FinTech increased by 144% in 2021 compared to 2020. According to research by the consulting firm BCG, there were three times as many startups founded globally in 2021 as there were in 2019. Additionally, North America has the most projects (10,605).

Research firms like Research and Markets project that the worldwide FinTech market will reach $31.5 billion by 2026 in light of these trends. This is nearly four times as much as it was six years ago.

The technologies that underpin financial goods and services are essential to the growth of the FinTech sector. Let’s look at the predictions made by top technology firms (McKinsey, Accenture, and Deloitte) regarding how the sector will evolve and the trends in fintech in 2022.

OpenAI

According to McKinsey, just 10% of open banking’s promise is actually realized. This financial technology shows promise. Users are slowly beginning to understand the advantages of working with open data because information exchange promotes scholarly investigation, software advancement, and enhancement of financial services.

With the owner’s permission, bank client data is made available to third parties via open API, sometimes known as “open banking.” For the bank customer, this information sharing format is advantageous. For instance, a devoted customer can decide not to switch financial institutions because they are happy with the dependability and stability of their bank. However, the bank is relatively conservative, and many of the digital services offered by rivals have not yet been adopted. In order to track customer spending and spending patterns, the client wishes to link analytics tools to financial data.

The bank does not like to lose a dependable client. As a result, it gives the owner’s data to a third party that deals with analytics with the aid of an API. It is accomplished using the API. The account holder benefits from receiving regular reports on the balance, expenses, and savings thanks to open banking.

The bank is able to give insurance firms, retailers, and other businesses access to information about the client’s money because of accessible APIs. Before implementing insurance, granting a loan, or allowing payment by installments, they must confirm the client’s solvency. With the use of open banking, consumers may now pay for goods and services online quickly and easily, acquire a loan quickly, and pay for services with a single swipe. In 2024, 63.8 million individuals will utilize open banking, predicts Statista. In comparison to 2020, this is roughly five times more.

The Internet of Things

The entire IoT market, which includes hardware, platforms and software, professional and managed services, and connectivity services, generated $190.26 billion in revenue in 2021.  Some key stats are:

  • Around the world, there are well over 7 billion connected IoT devices.
  • IoT devices exceeded non-IoT devices in 2020, and it is anticipated that there will be 25.4 billion IoT devices by 2030.
  • There are already more than 400 active IoT systems.
  • The largest IoT spending category is video entertainment.
  • IoT-related investments make up more than 10% of VC money.

Enterprise IoT initiatives were greatly impacted by the COVID-19 epidemic. Priorities and demand for IoT solutions increased as digital transformation took center stage. Based on discussions with market participants and the findings of end-user surveys from late 2021, the publisher modified its IoT market projection for 2022 to 2023 in order to assess the impact.

IoT linked devices are almost as numerous as there are humans on the planet (Transforma Insights).  The number of IoT devices that are connected has increased significantly. and for the foreseeable future is predicted to increase year over year.  The most recent statistics readily accessible estimates the number of linked IoT devices at 7.74 billion.  Within the next 7 years, there will be 25 billion or more IoT devices (Transforma Insights)

The 7 billion IoT devices now in use may seem astounding. However, this number is anticipated to increase by more than 3 times to 25.44 billion total IoT devices by 2030 thanks to 5G and other technologies.  There are more IoT devices than non-IoT gadgets (IoT Analytics)

Over the past ten years, there has been a noticeable transition from non-IoT to IoT devices. In actuality, by 2030, 75% of all devices will be IoT.

 

IoT revenue is anticipated to reach $1 trillion by 2030, and some of the biggest IoT markets by revenue are shown below for current positions:

  • $101.8 billion in consumer electronics and internet gadgets
  • Vehicle connectivity: $73.8 billion
  • $39.4 billion relates to payment terminals.
  • Monitoring and tracking of assets: $17.2 billion
  • Inventory control and management: $11.3 billion

By 2030, the scene is anticipated to appear as follows:

  • $203.1 billion in consumer electronics and internet gadgets
  • Vehicle connectivity: $197.8 billion
  • $52.5 billion relates to payment terminals.
  • Tracking and observing assets: $37.7 billion
  • Personal tracking and surveillance: $30.8 billion
  • Robotics for precision work: $27.4 billion
  • white products USD 25,9 billion
  • Inventory control and management: $20.5 billion
  • Robotic personal assistants: $18.4 billion
  • “Visualization” of the real world – $13.7 billion

Connected wearables are beneficial for a variety of FinTech jobs, including:

Financial firms use mobile banking applications to track client behaviour and determine the most appropriate services to offer.  Traditional point-of-sale (POS) systems are being replaced by mobile POS systems.  IoT is the foundation for the security of financial network devices. Devices are monitored, controlled, and unmanaged equipment is turned off by the system.

In place of a bank card, payments are made via smartphones, bracelets, and smartwatches.  Smart refrigerators and connected speakers can place orders and make payments on their own.  Smartphones and wristbands are both employed for biometric authentication.

Connected devices are being used more frequently by fintech organizations to acquire business-friendly customer insights and make better judgments. The wearables market will increase from $48.89 billion in 2021 to $118.16 billion in 2028 as a result of the growing interest in IoT.
