Digital banking users to top 3.6 billion globally by 2024 Featured

By

The total number of digital banking users globally will exceed 3.6 billion by 2024, up from 2.4 billion in 2020, a 54% increase, with growth driven by the rise of digital-only banks and the ongoing focus on digital transformation by established bank brands, according to a newly published study.

The new research by Juniper Research - Digital Banking: Banking-as-a-Service, Open Banking & Digital Transformation 2020-2024 - found that digital-only banks have gained market share from traditional banks by offering superior user experiences and tightly focused USPs.

According to Juniper Research, banks invested heavily in digital transformation and new offerings in 2019, although the extent of these activities varied considerably. Juniper Research’s Digital Transformation in Banking Readiness Index analysed leading Tier 1 banks to evaluate their digital transformation readiness and highlight their respective positioning in their digital innovation roadmaps.

The research recommends that established banks must personalise the app experience, using AI‑based personal financial management tools to fight back against digital-only bank innovation.

The research also identified the leading group of banks for digital transformation are:

  • Bank of America
  • BBVA
  • JPMorgan Chase

According to Juniper Research, Bank of America offers extensive digital solutions, including the Erica chatbot, and has had “noticeable upticks in digital usage and engagement”, while BBVA has focused on capitalising on APIs in banking, by offering the BBVA Open Platform, which is a Banking-as-a-Service platform.

And JPMorgan Chase has experimented with blockchain and is “rumoured” to be planning a digital-only launch in the UK, says Juniper Research.

“These banks have executed highly effective digital transitions; however digital transformation is never complete. These banks must now refocus on the new strategies required to retain their digital leadership,” noted research author Nick Maynard

The research also noted that traditional banks are launching digital-only brands, such as Bó from UK bank NatWest, but cautioned that these launches must be differentiated from existing offerings and digital-only competition, in terms of providing a more personalised experience, “or they will fail to gain momentum”.
