The Currency Exchange Software market is expected to register a CAGR of 12.5% over the next five years. This growth is primarily driven by increasing international transactions, rising investment in the fintech industry, and increasing demand from various end-users, coupled with the increase in the adoption of cloud technology.

Key Highlights

  • The market studied is driven by the rising demand for multi-currency accounting software, specially designed to facilitate foreign currency exchange bureaus that mainly help exchange currencies and cash and sell travelers' cheques. It enables the currency exchange cashiers to sell or buy foreign currency. The cashier can choose from currency notes, currency coins, and traveler's cheques to transact.
  • Also, the excessive currency spreads and high bank charges for cross-border payments have affected individuals and merchants. In addition, an increasing need to eliminate manual processes and the necessity of a strong and automated solution for international payments processing is expected to drive the demand for currency exchange software. Currency exchange software ensures improved compliance and converts foreign currencies for the convenience of global traders and investors.
  • Further, the growth in cross-border transactions has become more frequent, and the demand for foreign exchange software has become increasingly crucial to the global economy and has grown in relative size. However, the security issues faced across countries by currency exchange software may hamper the market's growth.
  • Moreover, as global markets for products and services tighten due to the COVID-19 pandemic outbreak, the United States and other global sellers are expected to benefit from overseas consumer and business markets to expand revenues to compensate for domestic sales shortfalls. But with the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic sending exchange rates upside down, companies realize there's a hidden danger to not managing their currency exchange risk. All these factors would supplement the growth of currency exchange software.

Currency Exchange Software Market Trends

Cloud Segment is Expected to Hold the Major Share

  • Cloud-based systems are cost-effective, as they can use the software on a pay-per-use basis. Enterprises have various benefits as the cloud-based software offers advantages, including low maintenance costs, the limited requirement for hardware infrastructure, more accessible and faster implementation of IT solutions, and less dependency on in-house IT personnel with no licensing fees.
  • In addition, the technology can be deployed for financial institutions on a cloud infrastructure where the services are accessible online or on mobile and are available through APIs that can be integrated into the existing system. Such instances are expected to drive the market over the forecast period.
  • Moreover, enterprises can access data and services through web-based platforms, such as web browsing. The short implementation time also reduces the cost of implementation, thereby improving the return on investment (ROI). Various companies in the market, such as 4xLabs Pte. Ltd focus on software design, architecture and testing, automation of processes with continuous integration, and a deployment system by leveraging the cloud.
  • In addition, the growth in cloud traffic across the world is positively impacting the currency exchange software market vendors to offer cloud-based currency exchange software. For instance, according to the data from Cisco Systems, the cloud traffic in North America is expected to reach 6,844 Exabytes per year.
  • Market vendors in the region are capitalizing on this opportunity, such as Clear View Systems Ltd., which offers cloud deployment of its currency exchange software to various industries. The company's CXR Cloud Edition is built to scale up or down on demand whether the end-user needs one workstation or has hundreds of users working in multiple branches nationwide or internationally.

North America is Expected to Hold Major Share

  • The region houses many enterprises among small money transfer firms, travel agencies, and forex fixing companies. Also, influence by the adequate and upgraded IT infrastructure availability and dispersion for foreign exchange organizations and money transfer firms is likely to boost the market for the development of currency exchange software in the region.
  • Many governments, private financial institutions, credit unions, travel agencies, and corporate businesses in the region are largely adopting currency exchange software, which is expected to drive the demand for currency exchange software in the region.
  • In addition, the increasing operations of US-based companies in various foreign countries are driving the demand for currency exchange software to enable them to buy and manage foreign currencies to support their international operations. Such factors further propel the market's growth in the region over the forecast period.
  • Market vendors in the region are continuously upgrading and launching new features in their software, which is expected to boost the demand for currency exchange software in various end-user industries. In addition, growing cloud computing among different organizations and growth in forex trading will drive the market over the forecast period.
