New York, Aug. 29, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Reportlinker.com announces the release of the report "Global Anti-Money Laundering Solutions Market Size & Share Analysis - Growth Trends & Forecasts (2023 - 2028)" - https://www.reportlinker.com/p06487550/?utm_source=GNW
The emerging trend of digital banking solutions and strategic priority on the security of online payments support the growth and adoption of AML software by various BFSIs, creating an opportunity for market growth.
AML and Know Your Customer agreements are becoming more crucial across the financial sectors due to the rise of illegal tax avoidance, fear-based oppressor funding, electronic wrongdoing, and criminal financial infringement. Large and small financial institutions are seeing increased security breaches and costs associated with compliance, driving the market adoption of AML solutions globally.
The increasing cases of money laundering worldwide are among the primary factors driving the adoption of anti-money laundering solutions across enterprises. For instance, according to the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) forecast, the amount of money that has been laundered globally amounts to approximately 2-5% of the global GDP.
Money Laundering issues have deeply concerned governments around the world, and to ensure seamless compliance with laws and regulations and reduce the amount of time spent working with high-risk clients, financial institutions quickly adopt intelligent, data-driven, and custom AML software. For instance, in May 2023, India’s anti-money laundering (AML) regulations apply to businesses, banks, cryptocurrency exchanges, foreign portfolio investors, trusts, and non-governmental organizations announced to include company representatives, banking intermediaries, accounting professionals like Chartered Accountants and Company Secretaries in its AML law.
However, integrating various software systems from developers, which are frequently incompatible with one another, presents difficulties for financial institutions. The ability of users and professionals to clearly understand and train employees on the application of such technologies and the difficulty of acclimating practices to technology systems or solutions that have not been tested are restricting the adoption of AML solutions across the financial sectors.
COVID-19 positively impacted market growth due to the rise of digital banking services, which need AML software and services for verifying customer and Transaction details. In addition, the remote working conditions further stimulate the money launderers, thereby increasing the need to drive efficiency and effectiveness across the organizations by adopting anti-money laundering solutions. Financial institutions strategically allocate their resources and take initiatives to leverage technological advancements and automate their processes, securely and remotely, to minimize the risks of money laundering and other financial crimes in the post-pandemic time, fueling market growth.
Anti-Money Laundering Solutions Market Trends
Transaction Monitoring Solution is Expected to Grow Significantly
Transaction monitoring software alerts the financial organization when a customer transaction violates the standard criteria set for that transaction, accounts, or customer during customer transactions. Once the software generates an alarm, the transaction monitoring process conducted by AML is automatically stopped and would suggest the Firm’s Compliance or Risk Department continues to execute and review the cycle.
AML transaction monitoring has been included in compliance programs for financial institutions to spot and report any anomalous behavior that might indicate money laundering, terrorist funding, or other financial crimes that call for constant surveillance of financial transactions. AML software for transaction monitoring is highly sought after since it scans and analyses various financial transaction data, including bank transfers, credit card payments, and other financial activities.
Additionally, a well-formulated transaction monitoring system is crucial for an effective anti-money laundering (AML) ecosystem. It is more profound in the post-pandemic world, where most transactions are now being performed over digital platforms.
Vendors in the market are integrating AI and ML into their tech-led (rather than human-led) transaction monitoring AML solutions, which will enable them to develop a strong decision support system by utilizing ML-powered predictive analytics and using self-learning methods to continuously evolve with the help of new data points and customer analysis, supporting the demand for highly reliable AML solutions for financial transaction monitoring.
For instance, in June 2023, a comprehensive AI-based transaction monitoring solution was developed through a partnership between Scorechain, a crypto AML compliance solutions provider, and Hawk AI, an anti-money laundering surveillance technology provider to banks, payment firms, and other FinTech companies. The partnership has been strategically developed to provide a streamlined transaction monitoring solution to the global financial sector by combining their respective technological capabilities and expertise.

According to the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime, the region is becoming vulnerable to money laundering activities, with nations like Indonesia, Singapore, Thailand, and the Philippines being particularly at risk, which creates an opportunity for the vendors in the region due to their expertise in providing AML solutions to protect the financial crimes.
Additionally, in May 2023, MAS, the central bank of Singapore, collaborated with AvePoint, a cloud platform provider, to optimize and secure SaaS operations in the digital workplace for a digital platform to reduce money laundering and terrorist financing in the nation, which would increase the demand for AML software in the region to develop their solutions using AvePoint’s Platform.
