Forecast Summary

  • The value of payments via CBDCs will reach $213 billion annually by 2030, up from just $100 million in 2023. This radical growth of over 260,000%, reflects the early stage of the sector, currently limited to pilot projects.
  • Adoption will be driven by governments leveraging CBDCs to boost financial inclusion and to increase their control over how digital payments are made. CBDCs will increase access to digital payments in emerging economies in particular, where mobile penetration is significantly higher than banking penetration.
  • By 2030, 92% of the total value transacted via CBDCs will be paid domestically. This reflects a change from almost 100% during the current pilot stages, as of 2023. As CBDCs are issued by central banks, they will be closely targeted at domestic payment challenges initially, with cross-border payments coming later, as systems become established and links are made between CBDCs used by individual countries.
  • While cross-border payments are currently have high costs and slow transaction speeds, this area is not the focus of CBDC development. As CBDC adoption will be very country specific, it will be incumbent on cross-border payment networks to link schemes together, allowing the wider payments industry to benefit from CBDCs.
  • A lack of commercial product development around CBDCs is a key limiting factor for the current market, with few well-defined platforms for central banks to leverage. Prospective CBDC platform providers should develop a full end-to-end solution, including wholesale capabilities, wallet provision and merchant acceptance, in order to enable the potential of CBDCs to be realised.
