Market Dynamics

Driver: Increasing demand for Blockchain as a Service due to COVID-19 outbreak

The COVID-19 emergency has caused significant interruptions across worldwide supply chains. Two factor plays a major role: numerous factories shut down due to safety and hygiene concerns, and the unparalleled demand for specific products, such as PPE kits and medical supplies. Various users are feeling pressured to secure supplies from unknown origins or quality due to the increased demand for these products. Lengthy supply chains cause excessive obscurity, making it hard to calculate and plan the entire supply process. Blockchain is the best option for supply chains as it can connect all stakeholders into one supply chain network universal source while maintaining transparency and being able to securely break down data silos. Therefore, huge numbers of blockchain arrangements exist in the supply chain process, which accelerated during the COVID-19 pandemic. Blockchain accelerates the validation procedure by expelling third-party delegates and innate delays in handling and processing operations. The advantages include quicker handling and processing time, reduced costs, lower operational risks, and faster settlements for all parties included.

Restraint:Uncertain regulatory status and standards

Regulations may hinder the adoption of the blockchain as a service technology across various regions. Governments are establishing various regulations to avoid fraudulent cross-border transactions. For instance, in February 2018, Japan formed a legislation to regulate bitcoin across the country, similarly, in the recent past, India has banned the cryptocurrency’s trade. Moreover, various countries are investing in research to get acquainted with blockchain and its usage. Some areas of blockchain implementation are highly contingent upon supportive regulations, including property records, legal contracts, and disintermediation of financial institutions. According to the BigBreak101, organizations can use Know Your Customer (KYC) to comply with the regulatory norms. Moreover, the blockchain as a service technology does not have clarity over regulatory compliances; hence, organizations are more careful while making international transactions through blockchain.

Opportunity: Blockchain and the Internet of Things

Blockchain technology can provide a secure and scalable framework for communication between IoT devices. While modern security protocols already appeared to be vulnerable when implemented to IoT devices, blockchain has already approved its high resistance to cyberattacks. Besides, the technology allows smart devices to make automated micro-transactions. Due to its distributed nature, blockchain will conduct transactions faster and cheaper. To enable the transfer of money or data, IoT devices leverage smart contracts, which will be considered as the agreement between the two parties.

Challenge: Lack of the technical knowledge

Blockchain technology is currently one of the hottest and most intriguing technologies in the blockchain as a service market. However, end users are still facing some challenges about the technical understanding of the blockchain technology and its concept, as it is in a nascent stage. Platforms for training and maintaining knowledge in the blockchain field would become a necessity, as the adoption and use cases of blockchain technology are expected to increase in the next few years. Blockchain technology uses cryptographic algorithms that run across a vast network of independent computers. Hence, knowledge of the related techniques is required to leverage the blockchain technology applications.

SMEs segment to grow at a higher CAGR during the forecast period

Rather than investing in on-premises networking solutions, SMEs prefer cloud-based solutions, which are more flexible and fall within the budget. The adoption of the pay-as-you-go model by SMEs to flexibly manage the IT infrastructure as per their requirements is projected to drive the adoption of blockchain as a service. Also, the need for efficient customer data protection and cost-cutting, as well as attaining a competitive advantage, enables quick response and timely decisions that are projected to drive the growth of the blockchain as a service market in SMEs. Also, factors such as the need for efficient customer data protection, cost-cutting, getting a competitive advantage, and quick response and timely decisions are projected to drive the growth of the blockchain as a service market in SMEs.
