Key Findings & Highlights
NelsonHall's market analysis of the blockchain industry and trends consists of 79 pages.
The global blockchain market is worth $610m (estimated in 2018), with average CAGR of 94% through 2022. The United States, UK and Continental Europe, Japan, and South Korea are the largest and fastestgrowing geos.
The market is quite young with providers still seeking leadership positions. Vendors are of three types in blockchain platform architecture: agnostic, monolithic, and bespoke. Agnostic vendors utilize a variety of platforms for blockchain, and allow the client needs to dictate which platform is chosen; they often have 4-6 preferred architectures with clearly defined use case guidelines for deploying each. Examples include Wipro, Infosys, TCS, and Tech Mahindra.
Monolithic vendors have focused their efforts on a single blockchain platform architecture and deploy it exclusively. They build their market vision around a strategy that fits the capability set of that architecture and have a significant degree of influence in steering the development of the platform to suit their needs. Examples include IBM and Digital Asset (both on Hyperledger Fabric)
Bespoke vendors have developed their own proprietary platform for blockchain/DLT; are not dependent on public platforms. They usually serve not just a single market, but a single use case within that market, as a specialty provider, and have complete autonomy over the platform and can change anything about it to better suit client needs. Examples include Symbiont.
