Forecast Summary

Regtech spend will surge to $207 billion globally by 2028, with AI & machine learning unlocking efficiencies. Spend on regtech by financial institutions and other industries will increase by 124% between 2023 and 2028 globally, from $83 billion in 2023.
  • Increasingly complex regulatory requirements are driving corporates to adopt a range of new technologies to facilitate compliance. New approaches include the use of shared blockchain ledgers to improve anti-money laundering and fraud compliance at cryptocurrency exchanges. Natural language processing is also used to detect malicious actors in emails and phone calls, successfully identifying misconduct, conflicts of interest and financial crime. With increased deployment of these technologies, we anticipate increasing levels of enterprise investment, as they recognise the vast efficiencies regtech can create.
  • The research found that the leading players offered streamlined identity verification automated by AI, and were able to successfully position themselves in many different industries, as regtech expands beyond just financial services. In order to stay ahead of their competition, vendors must develop solutions that utilise AI and machine learning, which can automate processes such as identity verification.
  • The most successful vendors will leverage AI to reduce the manual requirements needed by compliance teams and allow them to focus on tasks that require human elements, lowering costs and increasing productivity significantly, at a time of strong cost pressures.
