AI-Based Anti-Money Laundering (AML) Solutions Market Outlook

Fact.MR has released its AI-based anti-money laundering (AML) solutions market report, which has revealed the past performance of the industry as well as the future growth of technology enabled anti-money laundering solutions.

Money launderers continues to outsmart existing prevention financial and technological infrastructure, albeit the finance industry worldwide invests over US$ 75 Bn on AML solutions. Over a billion dollars were invested by U.S. and Canadian agencies alone in 2019 to upscale their anti-money laundering tools.

Advanced cognitive technologies integrating AI and machine learning enables the system to automatically detect true money laundering instances. Implemented new systems immix the power of big data analytics and ML in identifying breach designs, and alert systems for similar events, thus preventing money laundering activities.

These AI-based AML tools also generate signals to notice unfamiliar or suspicious transactions from a wide array of data, which is often unstructured or at times structured. This results in sizable minimization in false positives and false negatives, while banks can deploy miniscule number of compliance analysts to inspect the reduced cases before filing SARs.

Fact.MR has estimated that spending by banks and other financial institutions on AI-enabled AML technology will increase rapidly over the coming years.

Revenue Analysis of AI-based AML Solutions from 2016 to 2020 Compared to Demand Outlook for 2021 to 2031

As per the AI-based anti-money laundering solutions industry research by Fact.MR – a market research and competitive intelligence provider, historically, from 2016 to 2020, market value of the industry increased drastically, wherein, countries such as the United States, France, Germany, United Kingdom, and France, India, and China held a significant share in the global market.

To strengthen financial systems against money laundering, terrorist financing, and other financial crimes, anti-money laundering (AML) compliance has been helping financial systems since 1970 following the enactment of the Bank Secretary Act (BSA). AML technology compliance has changed dramatically with the addition of artificial intelligence and regulatory layers in the financial jurisdiction.

Despite stringent regulatory reforms, incidence of money laundering and breaches is increasing, where substantial penalties have been reported. The U.S. Department of the Treasury roughly estimates that annually, around US$ 1.6 trillion of global money is involved in money laundering, representing 2.7% of global GDP.

Extensive revolution in technology has brought transformation in AML compliance services, which, in turn, has aided financial systems to address the challenges of money laundering. While increasing incidence of money laundering, terrorist financing, and other illicit financial transactions represent good opportunities for AI-based AML solution providers, growing layers of regulations and simultaneous technological restraints remain future milestones to be achieved by AML compliance providers.

Constant surge in anti-money laundering activities and the number of transactions has aggravated demand for AI-based AML software and solutions, which has increased the efficiency of companies and banks in the last few years. Artificial intelligence is decreasing the cost of AML compliance by doing all human work by itself.

American banks are spending nearly US$ 23.5 Bn annually, followed by European banks are around US$ 20 Bn, to identify AML transactions and their patterns. This spending by banks has been increased remarkably due to high fines being imposed on them by regulatory authorities; such as, American banks were fined US$ 23.6 Bn and European banks have paid fines of nearly US$ 1.2 Bn.

The aforementioned factors are increasing demand for AI in anti-money laundering solutions, which is expected to boost the global market during the forecasted era of ten years.

  • The anti-money laundering software sales are anticipated to cross USD 1.77 billion by end of the year 2023. It is estimated that 2–5% of the world's GDP, or $800 billion–$2 trillion in current US dollars, is laundered internationally each year. However, it is challenging to assess the overall quantity of money that undergoes the laundering cycle due to the covert nature of the practice. The penetration of hidden ways is a driver for software-based laundering monitoring.

  • Through Big Data searches for suspected abnormalities among millions of transactions, both fraud and money laundering can be found. Companies are now responsible for identifying fraudulent transactions. As a result, they have spent billions on highly advanced Big Data approaches. The technology is extensively useful for financial institutions like Banks to analyze their customers and their transactions.

  • Businesses can fine-tune transaction monitoring algorithms to detect more suspicious activity and fewer false positives by combining data analytics and machine learning. Additionally, modern case management technologies make reporting and conducting investigations simpler than ever.

  • The AML laws are always being improved and expanded by organizations like FinCEN, FATF, and OFAC to help the banking sector remain ahead of criminals. Additionally, not only banks are needed to comply; any company that allows consumers to move money, such as an online marketplace, a cryptocurrency, a fintech, or a gaming platform, must have an efficient AML program in place in order to avoid paying hefty fines.

  • The business pays extra attention to avoid being in news for corrupt practices and with the AML solutions in place companies can manage to save their market image by ensuring clean practices.

  • Big data analytics helps companies in the reduction of false positives, which occur when a normal consumer is mistakenly identified as a high-risk or fraudulent customer. Up to 90% of the time, the alerts generated by AML programs are false positives, which costs businesses a lot of time and money.

How Complex is AI-based AML Software?

Machine learning is a new technology as compared to other technologies that are not taught what to look for and how to detect tricky financial transactions that are related to financial crime.

Primary causes for money laundering are attributed to easy accessibility of the financial system and trade-based money laundering.

Canada’s regime for anti-money laundering and anti-terrorist financing activities is controlled by the Financial Transactions and Reports Analysis Center of Canada (FINTRAC), which actively monitors activities of financial institutions, intermediaries, and participating member countries. This regional scenario presents higher implementation of AI-based AML compliance by the financial sector and legally associated other institutions, owing to the stringent regulatory framework.

The U.S AI-based anti-money laundering solutions market is projected to acquire more than 1/4 of the overall market share from 2021 to 2031.

How Will Asia Pacific Contribute to Revenue from AI-based Anti-Money Laundering Solutions?

The Asia Pacific region consists of multiple developing economies that are gradually growing to stable institutional, political, and economic capacities. Such a developing scenario also presents a high level of corruption, where money laundering has the demand and opportunity to flourish.

The region has a dispersed and less penetrated regulatory framework to monitor financial frauds and money laundering activities. According to the Global Fraud Survey 2016, concerning combating corruption, China has seen strong and sustained initiatives on the global stage.

While working for anti-corruption measures, inter-government cooperation, foreign multinationals, and Chinese companies are seeking a more transparent and ethical market over the risk of financial loss in a less transparent market. India has also initiated efforts towards AML following FATF recommendations such as GST, Aadhaar compulsion, and KYC reports that are gradually gathering data for AML compliances.

Increasing financial inclusions, international financial collaborations, growing online financial transactions, and rising number of financial institutions are likely to drive demand for AI-based AML solutions over the next ten years. The Asia Pacific AI-based transaction monitoring market will generate marvellous opportunities, as the market is acquiring the third-largest market share in the global market.
