The Banking market refers to the financial services sector providing financial products and services to individuals and businesses. Retail banking focuses on offering financial services to individual consumers, such as personal loans, savings and checking accounts, credit cards, and mortgages. Commercial banking, on the other hand, provides financial services to small and large businesses, including loans, lines of credit, and other financial products designed specifically for businesses.
The market consists of two segments:
- The Traditional Banking market refers to the financial services sector that provides a range of financial products and services to individuals and businesses through store-based branches and other traditional channels.
- The Digital Banking market refers to the emerging market for digital-only banks that offer financial services through online and mobile platforms.

The global banking market is a highly competitive and dynamic industry that is constantly evolving to meet the changing needs of consumers and businesses.
Traditional banks have a long history in the industry and are well-established players. They offer a wide range of financial products and services, including savings accounts, checking accounts, loans, mortgages, and credit cards. These banks typically have a physical presence, with branches located in various cities and countries. They also have extensive networks of ATMs and other banking facilities.
On the other hand, neobanks are relatively new players in the industry that operate entirely online. They offer similar financial products and services to traditional banks but with a focus on convenience and flexibility. They use digital technologies to provide a seamless and frictionless banking experience, often with no fees or low fees. Neobanks also leverage data analytics and AI to offer their customers personalized financial advice and recommendations.
In recent years, neobanks have seen significant growth, especially among younger consumers who prefer digital channels for their banking needs. However, traditional banks still hold the lion's share of the market, and many of them have launched their own digital banking platforms to compete with neobanks.
One of the biggest challenges facing the retail and commercial banking industry is regulatory compliance. Banks must comply with a myriad of regulations, including anti-money laundering (AML) and know-your-customer (KYC) regulations, which can be costly and time-consuming. Moreover, data privacy and cybersecurity concerns have become increasingly important, especially in light of recent high-profile data breaches.
Another challenge is the changing consumer behavior and preferences. With the rise of digital technologies, consumers are becoming more accustomed to personalized and convenient experiences. Banks must adapt to these changing expectations by providing more personalized products and services and leveraging data analytics and AI to offer more relevant recommendations.
In addition, the COVID-19 pandemic has had a significant impact on the industry, with many consumers and businesses turning to digital channels for their banking needs. This has accelerated the shift towards digital banking and forced traditional banks to adapt to changing customer demands.
Additionally, the peak of inflation in 2022 affected the market. For more details about the impacts of inflation on the financial industry read more here.
