Market research analysts predict the global anti-money laundering (AML) software market to grow steadily at a CAGR of around 11% during the forecast period. AML software allows financial institutions and other enterprises to detect suspicious transactions and analyze customer data. Its ability to provide real-time alerts and tools to report suspicious events to maximize security and operational efficiency will foster its adoption during the forecast period.
An important growth driver for this market is the increasing regulatory compliance requirements, which compels financial institutions to adopt AML software. The growing utilization of predictive analytics to reduce false results and to decrease the compliance cost of AML software is a trend that will impel market growth until the end of 2020.
In this market research, analysts have estimated the Americas to be the largest market for AML software during the forecast period. Though the Americas account for the largest market share, the APAC region is envisaged to witness the fastest growth during the predicted period. Factors such as the rising adoption of stringent AML regulations, increasing regulatory compliance, and the growing adoption of these solutions in emerging economies like Australia, China, and India will propel the prospects for market growth in APAC during the estimated period.
