The blockchain technology has immense potential in various application areas, such as banking, cybersecurity, and the Internet of Things (IoT). Several pioneers are implementing blockchain solutions to create a decentralized network of IoT devices, which would eliminate the need for a central location to handle the communication between devices. The blockchain technology can revolutionize the world by addressing various challenges in the traditional banking processes, resulting in uninterrupted banking services.

The cyber threat landscape is expanding, and conventional security solutions are not able to detect malware, ransomware, and other sophisticated cyber threats. Hence, the security vendors are also leveraging the blockchain technology for fortifying the capabilities of their cybersecurity solutions and services, thereby offering better protection and remediation for enterprises. The increasing use of blockchain technology in IoT, banking, and cybersecurity would provide growth opportunities for blockchain technology vendors.

The application providers segment is expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period, due to an increasing need to speed up the process of universal cross-border payments.
