Summary of Blockchain

The blockchain industry across Europe has experienced significant growth over the past few years, evolving beyond its early associations with cryptocurrency speculation. An increasing number of enterprises are now exploring blockchain solutions to address challenges in areas like supply chain management, digital identity, and cross-border payments. Some major European countries—including the United Kingdom, Germany, and France—have emerged as active hubs for blockchain development and adoption.

Based on our estimates, we can say that the regional European blockchain industry is forecasted to be a $74.47 billion industry in 2029 from $13.6 billion in 2023 with a CAGR of 31.01 %.

Blockchain technology is gaining significant interest across a wide range of industries in Europe as companies explore ways to streamline operations, reduce costs and add transparency. For example— several major European retailers and logistics firms are testing blockchain solutions to gain better end-to-end visibility into international supply chains spanning multiple countries. This can help address issues such as counterfeiting, track recalls more efficiently and enable more accurate planning and allocation of inventory.

Digital identity is another promising area as online services continue to proliferate. Blockchain can facilitate secure, decentralized identity verification and reduce the risk of fraud. For instance— governments and other organizations are investigating how to leverage blockchain to issue verifiable credentials confirming qualifications or access to services for citizens across borders.

Recent Trends and Insights

According to a recent insights– over 25% of large European companies have at least one blockchain project in production or testing. Supply chain management continues to be a major focus area that is seen to have companies experimenting with blockchain to increase supply chain visibility, traceability and efficiency.

Digital identity is another promising application as more services move online. In addition— blockchain payments networks are being developed and tested to enable faster, cheaper cross-border transfers compared to legacy systems. Several major banks are partnering to explore blockchain-based remittance corridors within Europe and globally.

In financial services— blockchain payments networks are being piloted to enable faster, lower-cost cross-border transfers compared to legacy systems like SWIFT. Several major European banks are partnering on projects exploring the use of blockchain and stablecoins for remittance corridors within the region as well as globally. There is hope that these initiatives could help reduce costs and processing times for payments to other areas of the world.

The growth of these enterprise use cases has spurred significant innovation in blockchain infrastructure across Europe. Technology hubs in countries like the UK, Germany and France are driving development of scalability solutions, privacy-preserving protocols and other foundational elements to support complex business applications of distributed ledger technology on an international scale.
