The increasing number of fraudulent claims in insurance companies and the emerging need to have transparent and trustworthy systems are expected to drive the overall growth of the Blockchain in Insurance Market.
The infrastructure and protocols provider segment is expected to have the largest market share during the forecast period.
Infrastructure and protocols providers help enterprises implement the blockchain technology by developing solutions that fulfill the increasing need for customer services, including mining, public, and special protocols. The blockchain technology can synchronize data across multiple entities, build trust, and engage customers by developing products and services that streamline and enhance the current payment processes. The effective and economic integration of the blockchain technology needs profound cooperation among incumbents, innovators, and regulatory bodies, which, at times, results in delayed implementation. Firms are, therefore, adopting coexistence as an approach to combine their infrastructure with the emerging technologies.
