Global RegTech Market to Hit $12.3 Billion USD by 2023 at a CAGR of 23.5%

A new report from Research and Markets projects that the global market for Regulatory technology (RegTech), which includes the application of AI and machine learning, will grow from $4.3 billion USD in 2018 to $12.3 billion USD in 2023 at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 23.5 percent. The report cites factors such as the increased cost of compliance, regulatory sandbox approach, and low entry barrier for Software-as-a-service based offerings as key market drivers in the space. Risk and compliance management is expected to hold the largest market size. An excerpt from the report summary reads:

Risk management has become a necessity for seamless business functioning. Taking timely inputs from incident and risk register; analyzing, identifying, monitoring, and controlling the risk; implementing risk impact analysis; and prioritizing the risks to enterprises are some of the major functionalities of risk management software. Enterprises with improper implementation of risk management programs are liable to risks such as paying large amounts in penalties for not conforming to regulatory requirements and reeling under financial crises due to mismanagement of financial controls or from natural calamities, such as earthquakes, fire, and flooding.
