Smart Contracts Market: Overview

Smart contracts are advanced computer programs or transactional protocols dealing with the automatic and computerized execution or control of legally applicable actions or events as per contractual terms. Transaction Protocol Data Unit (TPDU) is a protocol based on packet switching and is designed to aid financial transactions that are processed over an X.25 network. Smart contracts are designed to eliminate any middlemen, reduce the number of mediators, avoid losses related to fraud, and eliminate extra costs, or any other unwanted accidental exceptions.

Cryptocurrencies play a crucial role in the use of smart contracts. The one developed by Ethereum, a decentralized, open-source blockchain is considered the most fundamental building block of applications related to decentralized finance (Defi). Vending machines are sometimes mentioned as the oldest and most commonly found form of smart contract implementation. However, smart contracts do not enjoy the authority of actual legal documents and are not considered as legally-binding documents by many institutes.

A large section of legal personnel considers smart contracts just a means of performing obligations that are derived from other agreements like technological methods associated with payments or other commitments related to the transfer of cryptocurrencies or tokens. Many scholars also argue that the declarative nature of the computer program associated with smart contracts may influence the validity of smart contracts. Ethereum smart contracts are written in a Turing-complete programming language Solidity and are compiled into low-level p-code which is then executed by Ethereum Virtual Machine. However, due to halting problems, the Turing-completeness process may be considered risky by many scholars and is avoided by Vyper language.

Covid-19 Impact:

The adoption of smart contracts received a positive push during the Covid-19 peak. Since the virus was able to detect and reveal limitations in the healthcare sector especially pertaining to the way patients' data and payment was handled, many medical facilities witnessed a high adoption rate for smart contracts in order to deal with these problems. As per research conclusions, blockchain technology can be efficiently used for secure storage and retrieval of patient data.

Smart Contracts Market: Growth Drivers

Rise in adoption of smart contracts across sectors to propel market growth

The global contracts market cap is expected to witness significant growth owing to the rising population and adoption of smart contracts across sectors like banking, supply chain, real estate, insurance, and government. As per Statista, over USD 6.6 billion was spent on blockchain solutions in 2021. These transaction protocols have proven to be extremely useful in the banking sector which is an exponentially growing segment and one of the largest consumers of smart contracts.

Many banks use blockchain technology or smart contracts to avoid identity theft which is a highly prevalent problem in the sector causing banks to lose billions of money. In order to prevent identity theft or to prevent cybercriminals from gaining access to the personal data of bank customers, smart contracts can provide the necessary solution including a highly regulated electronic signature service thus creating an extra layer of protection.

Smart contracts can also be used to automate and standardize operational procedures like Know Your Customer (KYC) processes thus reducing manual work and optimizing the efficiency of the process. These technologically driven contracts also aid communication and transparency in banking transactions by allowing for monitoring everything related to account openings or everyday financial transactions. Such massive applications in one of the strongest industries are expected to aid global market expansion.

Smart Contracts Market: Restraints

The advanced coding used in creating smart contracts to restrict the market growth

Smart contracts are exceptionally advanced tools driven by complex programming languages or coding methods. Any small error in the code may result in complete failure of the development of the smart contract. Tracking and changing the erroneous code may become extremely time-consuming. There is also a lack of standardization or interchangeability of the programming code in the development process resulting in the creation of multiple loopholes which is anticipated to restrict smart contract industry growth trends during the forecast period.

Smart Contracts Market: Opportunities

Benefits offered by smart contracts in every sector to provide expansion opportunities

Some of the most common and regular benefits offered by smart contracts include high speed and extremely secure ways of transaction that save cost and time. These basic benefits are offered in every sector and if this technology can be customized to meet the exceptional needs of different industries, the system has the potential to dominate the technology market. Smart contracts eliminate the need for human intervention in repetitive operations thus allowing them the time to work on high-quality work which is projected to provide global smart contract market expansion opportunities.

Smart Contracts Market: Challenges

Lack of skilled professionals to challenge market cap growth

There is a significant dearth in the availability of skilled professionals capable of handling and maintaining such advanced engineering which may create challenging situations for smart contract industry growth. Skilled professionals are needed to not just develop more technologies but to also aid the upgrading of existing technology and make them more user-friendly. Even the institutes deploying smart contracts need in-house personnel to help them navigate through the deployment process to improve overall effectiveness.

Smart Contracts Market: Segmentation

The global market is segmented based on end-user, technology, platform, and region.

Recent Developments:

  • In March 2022, Grayscale Investment, a leading digital currency asset manager, announced the launch of funds aimed at the development of smart contract platforms which will contain 7 Ethereum competitors like Solano (SOL), Polkadot (DOT), Avalanche (AVAX), Cardona (ADA), Alogrand (ALGO), Polygon (MATIC), and Stellar (XLM). Grayscale announced the inclusion of Ethereum because of the growing demand in the industry for other blockchain networks.
  • In September 2021, Cardona managed to successfully launch smart contracts after years of hard work. The company introduced Plutus-powered smart contracts scripts to the world. The completed Alonzo hard fork was due in the long-awaited smart work functionality of Cardona.
  • In June 2020, Data Gumbo and PrairieDog Venture collaborated to aid the use of smart contracts for changing capital projects. The collaboration intends to address industry concerns related to informational and transactional friction concerning capital projects, maintenance, and turnarounds across commercial, infrastructural, and industrial sectors.
