LONDON, Nov. 10, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- The tokenization market size is expected to grow at robust CAGR of 19.47% during the 2020-2027 periods to reach USD 6312.81 million in 2027.

Global Tokenization Market: Competitive Analysis
The global tokenization market is a fragmented and innovative landscape, thanks to low barriers to entry, and growing expansion of the global landscape. The collaboration and acquisitions remain key strategies to expansion of market share, with key companies increasingly making moves in new regions to avail growth. Some key tokenization companies include Major players include Mastercard (US), Fiserv (US), Micro Focus (UK), Visa (US), HelpSystems (US), American Express (US), Thales TCT (France), MeaWallet (Norway), Futurex (US), CipherCloud (US), among others.
Tokenization is the process of replacing sensitive data with a reference point for carrying out a wide range of tasks. These systems have been predominant in credit card systems, wherein access to credit card information of consumers is restricted to employees, with a reference number, randomly generated. This is ideal for financial institutes like banks to prevent access to sensitive information like credit cards to potential hackers. In practice, original data or sensitive data like credit card information is stored on internal bank servers or at secure outstations and is verified through a mechanism of tokenization. Hence, validation systems, and authorization systems are key to growth of tokenization, globally. The lack of standardized external standard for validating tokenization, and authorities remain key restraints to growth of the global tokenization market.
According to the World Bank, globally, 41% adults made or received payments digitally in 2014. This increased to 52% in 2017, noting a promising growth of 11%. Similarly, in high income economies, 86% people received or sent money digitally in 2014. The percentage rose to a whopping 91% in 2017. In low-income economies, in 2014, just 32% people sent or received payment digitally in 2014. This percentage rose to a promising 44% in 2017.
In 2019, there were over 45 billion credit card transactions in the US. These transactions largely coming from key players like Visa, MasterCard, Discover, and American Express accounted for over $4 trillion in volume in total. Hence, with trends like digitalization, contactless payments, and increased expansion of key financial products like loans, debit cards, credit cards; the future of tokenization companies remains robust.
News: NPCI Launched NTS Platform for Tokenization of RuPay Cards
On October 20th, 2021; National Payments Corporation of India (NPCI) announced the launch of the NPCI Tokenization System (NTS) that will support tokenization of cards as an alternative to storing card details with merchants.
In a new research survey, tokenization remains a key opportunity for new niches including increased consumer engagement, to opening up new revenue streams. However, the research notes loyalty remains a key factor in driving tokenization system advantages. For example, as people tend to be most 'loyal' in industries like financial services, banks and credit card companies remain ahead in tokenization – they key word here being loyalty.
Additionally, product awareness remains abysmally low globally, as just over 30% report familiarity with token systems in their daily lives. This includes lack of familiarity with highly confidential block chain-based token systems, which are ideal for specific commercial purposes like loyalty reward points. Due to growing awareness campaigns by tokenization companies, the use of blockchain-based tokenization is expected to grow as an easy form of payment in the near future. Furthermore, the awareness varies depending on the age of consumers, with Gen Z remaining most loyal, and aware about tokenization as a form of payment.
Today, the answer to 'which technology is predominantly used for contactless payment systems' increasingly favors tokenization technology, thanks to its growing acceptability around the world. Countries like China are floating the idea of its own virtual currency, signaling a more positive attitude towards adoption of tokenization systems. Furthermore, tokenization systems provide an added flexibility over classic encryption method. Classic encryption requires changes in size, and volume of data, which can be decoded using a specified technology in the background. On the other hand, tokenization leaves the original information intact as it in secure offline location, with only a reference used during tokenization.
According to a 2016 survey by Ponemon Institute, over 72% consumers reported willingness, and acceptance of encryption or tokenization for confidential data. Furthermore, 86% reported the technology will become even more important in the coming years. ACI worldwide reported that tokenization 34% retailers use tokenization technology in 2015, with a further 36% engaged in pilot launches for the projects. The increasing cyber-threats to small, and large businesses alike, and increasing digitalization are likely to drive tokenization, which makes potential cyber threats useless in securing key confidential data. The growing horizon of contactless payments, increased demand for IoT wearables in pharmaceutical industry, and growing use of tokenization in mobile devices project a promising forecast for tokenization companies during the 2020-2027 period.
