Forecast Summary

Total savings from blockchain implementation in B2B and consumer cross-border settlement will increase from $301 billion in 2021 to $10.2 trillion in 2030. Proof of cost savings will be critical in order for blockchain technology to proliferate here – added to the fact that banks are notoriously reluctant to update or relinquish legacy processes.
  • Blockchain deployment for cross-border settlement will drive significant cost savings for banks; rising from $301 million in 2021 to $10 billion in 2030. Blockchain implementation in cross-border settlement will enable stakeholders to leverage increased payment transparency and traceability, a critical advantage in an increasingly omnichannel payments market.
  • Large global trade players, such as the US and China, will see the biggest cost savings from blockchain use, aided by high remittance volumes and increasingly favourable regulatory environments. In these high-value remittance markets, the potential for blockchain to meet the critical requirements of fast, reliable, and transparent payments will be a key driver of adoption. 
  • As a result of increased integration with major payment players across broad trade corridors, blockchain solutions such as RippleNet and Visa B2B Connect are already offering significant payment efficiencies compared with legacy systems. Additionally, Ripple has joined the ISO 20022 Standards Body; placing it in a strong position to establish blockchain as part of international payment standards. As these networks build, Juniper Research expects blockchain adoption to increase over the next decade, with an expected 2 billion cross-border transactions facilitated by blockchain in 2030.
