Banking and Payments Predictions Market Overview
2023 will test the economic and technological underpinnings of all direct-to-consumer and B2B propositions in banking, payments, and wealth management. With far less venture capital (VC) money sloshing around the sector, investors will expect far shorter, more direct paths to profitability. Incumbent banks will be under pressure to limit non-performing loans. A distressed fintech sector will present highly favorable M&A opportunities for incumbents looking for a step change in capabilities and a blueprint for a new operating model. The Banking and Payments Predictions report is a multi-theme report covering 20 themes, drawn from banking, payments, and wealth management.
Banking and Payments Predictions – Top Themes
The top themes in the banking and payments market are artificial intelligence (AI), conversational platforms, cloud, cybersecurity, financial wellbeing, robo-advice, social media, generation hashtag, digital banking, environmental, social, and governance (ESG), SME banking, mobile payments, instant payments, online payments, data privacy, open banking, user experience, digital lending, strategic partnerships, and blockchain.
Artificial Intelligence: AI will be the single most disruptive technology theme within financial services because it has the most wide-ranging potential applications across mission-critical business areas. Those banks that do best in AI will have a holistic strategy that cuts across business lines, products, departments, and partners, enabling them to quickly identify and deploy the most proven use cases for maximum customer impact. Success in AI will require judicious investments in related areas, such as cloud and robotic process automation, to harvest the transformational potential of AI across all dimensions of the customer experience.

Conversational Platforms: Chatbots will support multi-channel and super-app engagement. They offer important flexibility and agility at a lower cost. This is especially true in the context of super-app strategy, where chatbots will be an important weapon against disintermediation. However, reliance on chatbots will bring added risk for distressed consumers. There is plenty of anecdotal evidence of chatbots misfiring at moments of heightened emotional stress.

Cybersecurity: Tech spending on cybersecurity will grow. Banks are unleashing the power of digital technologies to predict and prevent cyberattacks before they happen. Cybersecurity technologies will help banks shore up their reputation as trusted and secure providers as they digitize amid increased openness. Ransomware attacks continue to be a popular talking point and are growing in sophistication. Geopolitical tensions in 2022 put many companies on high alert for politically motivated cyberattacks, while deteriorating economic conditions will give other would-be attackers heightened motivations.

Generation Hashtag: Generation Hashtag, which refers to a group of people born between 1991 and 2005, differ the most around their openness to non-traditional providers, willingness to share data, satisfaction with ESG issues, desire for personalization, and reliance on mobile devices. Openness to non-traditional providers, including telcos, Big Tech, and new digital banks, is twice that of the general population, and that number has doubled in the last 24 months alone, which is a testament to the velocity of change we expect to continue across 2023.

Digital Banking: For purist digital banks without a physical presence, the potential size of the market has contracted in the last half of a decade, while the number of new digital banks has multiplied many times. In 2023, we expect more banks to offer some type of physical presence, but with great diversity in those approaches such as highly digital, hybrid, purely human, etc. Declining barriers to entry, alongside ongoing consumer interest in value alignment, will see ever more segmented new digital banks.

Success in AI will require judicious investments in related areas, such as cloud and robotic process automation, to harvest the transformational potential of AI across all dimensions of the customer experience.
Millennials and Generation Z are the key demographic for mobile-first investing and robo-advice, which is seen by many new entrants as a launching pad for a lifelong wealth relationship. However, this will continue to be a very difficult market for new entrants.
The most successful mobile payment systems in 2023 and beyond will be those that utilize the versatility of a mobile P2P or mobile commerce system to achieve omnichannel reach, as services in Asia-Pacific have already done.

Business Intelligence & Marketing Manager, SAL Heavy Lift
“The GlobalData platform is our go-to tool for intelligence services. GlobalData provides an easy way to access comprehensive intelligence data around multiple sectors, which essentially makes it a one-for-all intelligence platform, for tendering and approaching customers.
GlobalData is very customer orientated, with a high degree of personalised services, which benefits everyday use. The highly detailed project intelligence and forecast reports can be utilised across multiple departments and workflow scopes, from operational to strategic level, and often support strategic decisions. GlobalData Analytics and visualisation solutions has contributed positively when preparing management presentations and strategic papers.”
Market Analyst & Management, Liebherr-Werk
“COVID-19 has caused significant interference to our business and the COVID-19 intelligence from GlobalData has helped us reach better decisions around strategy. These two highlights have helped enormously to understand the projections into the future concerning our business units, we also utilise the project database to source new projects for Liebherr-Werk to use as an additional source to pitch for new business.”
Head of Key Accounts, Saab AB
Your daily news has saved me a lot of time and keeps me up-to-date with what is happening in the market, I like that you almost always have a link to the source origin. We also use your market data in our Strategic Business Process to support our business decisions. By having everything in one place on the Intelligence Center it has saved me a lot of time versus looking on different sources, the alert function also helps with this.
Marketing Intelligence Manager, Portugal Foods
Having used several other market research companies, I find that GlobalData manages to provide that ‘difficult-to-get’ market data that others can’t, as well as very diverse and complete consumer surveys.
Head of Customer Insight and Research, Standard Chartered
Our experience with GlobalData has been very good, from the platform itself to the people. I find that the analysts and the account team have a high level of customer focus and responsiveness and therefore I can always rely on. The platform is more holistic than other providers. It is convenient and almost like a one stop shop. The pricing suite is highly competitive and value for our organisation.
I like reports that inform new segments such as the analysis on generation Z, millennials, the impact of COVID 19 to our banking customers and their new channel habits. Secondly the specialist insight on affluent sector significantly increases our understanding about this group of customers. The combination of those give us depth and breadth of the evolving market.
I’m in the business of answering and helping people make decisions so with the intelligence center I can do that, effectively and efficiently. I can share quickly key insights that answer and satisfy our country stakeholders by giving them many quality studies and primary research about competitive landscape beyond the outlook of our bank. It helps me be seen as an advisory partner and that makes a big difference. A big benefit of our subscription is that no one holds the whole data and because it allows so many people, so many different parts of our organisation have access, it enables all teams to have the same level of knowledge and decision support.
Head of Consumer Sensory Insights, Givaudan
“I know that I can always rely on Globaldata’s work when I’m searching for the right consumer and market insights. I use Globaldata insights to understand the changing market & consumer landscape and help create better taste & wellbeing solutions for our customers in food, beverage and healthcare industries.
Globaldata has the right data and the reports are of very high quality compared to your competitors. Globaldata not only has overall market sizes & consumer insights on food & beverages but also provides insights at the ingredient & flavour level. That is key for B2B companies like Givaudan. This way we understand our customers’ business and also gain insight to our unique industry”
Senior Account Manager, TSYS
GlobalData provides a great range of information and reports on various sectors that is highly relevant, timely, easy to access and utilise. The reports and data dashboards help engagement with clients; they provide valuable industry and market insights that can enrich client conversations and can help in the shaping of value propositions. Moreover, using GlobalData products has helped increase my knowledge of the finance sector, the players within it, and the general threats and opportunities.
I find the consumer surveys that are carried out to be extremely beneficial and not something I have seen anywhere else. They provided an insightful view of why and which consumers take (or don’t) particular financial products. This can help shape conversations with clients to ensure they make the right strategic decisions for their business.
One of the challenges I have found is that data in the payments space is often piecemeal. With GD all of the data I need is in one place, but it also comes with additional market reports that provide useful extra context and information. Having the ability to set-up alerts on relevant movements in the industry, be it competitors or customers, and have them emailed directly to me, ensures I get early sight of industry activity and don’t have to search for news.
