About Global Crowdfunding Market

Crowdfunding refers to the practice of generating capital investments or funds for a project, cause, or an enterprise through a large number of individuals. It includes small amounts of capital from a large number of individuals and is done via Internet using social media platform and crowdfunding websites. The most common method to secure funding is by getting a loan from the bank. However, banks have a conventional way of looking at businesses and consider startup entrepreneurial ventures risky. They also have strict lending policies, which not all startups can comply with. This hinders the growth of new business developments and innovations. The advent of the Internet has changed the model of crowdfunding. Several crowdfunding platforms can be accessed by entrepreneurs through the Internet. Individuals can create online portfolios describing their ventures, which can be shared across multiple social media platforms.

Technavio’s analysts forecast the global crowdfunding market to decline at a CAGR of (16.96%) during the period 2017-2021.

Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Crowdfunding Market 2017-2021

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global crowdfunding market: GoFundMe, Indiegogo, Kickstarter, Patreon, and Teespring.

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: CircleUp, Gust, RocketHub, iFunding, Causes, Crowdfunder, CrowdRise, DonorsChoose.org, FirstGiving, Fundable, FundRazr, GiveForward, Kiva, and YouCaring.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “The latest trend gaining momentum in the market is Crowdfunding campaigns used as an avenue for crowdsourcing. Every startup business expects to cover up all the holes that startups in the past might have missed. One of the best ways to crowdsource is by launching a crowdfunding campaign. By having a crowdfunding campaign, an entrepreneur can engage the target audience and receive comments, feedback, and ideas. This feedback can be extremely valuable as it helps understand aspects of their business that were not thought before. This could lead to a better product or service and could inspire some other ideal on similar lines.”

According to the report, one of the major drivers for this market is Crowdfunding as a source of free promotion. Crowdfunding can act as a free marketing tool and as an opportunity to pre-sell the product. An active crowdfunding campaign can go further than just acquiring the required funds. Campaigns are optimal techniques to introduce the mission and vision of the venture to the market as they are cheaper and reach multiple channels faster. Social media is a common platform adopted for many crowdfunding campaigns, allowing the tracking of referral traffic to the websites.

Further, the report states that one of the major factors hindering the growth of this market is Time consuming. Crowdfunding can be a tedious and painstaking task to get it right. Entrepreneurs will have to give themselves at least three months of preparation time. If fund-raising depends on the crowdfunding campaign, entrepreneurs will require an initial investment in marketing assets. Depending on how much funds the company wishes to generate, the commitment for crowdfunding campaign can be generated. If generating high revenue is the only purpose, then crowdfunding might not always be the right option. The average money raised in crowdfunding is nearly $5,000, and considering the amount of the effort entrepreneurs put in, $5,000 is considerably low. Thus, crowdfunding might not be the right solution for such businesses. Debt from friends, family, or a small loan from financial institutions might be better alternatives.
