Based on type, the hybrid blockchain type segment to grow at the highest CAGR from 2020 to 2025

A permissioned blockchain is a type of hybrid blockchain that shares many features of both private and public blockchains.

A permissioned blockchain provides a hybrid solution between the low trust offered by public blockchains and the single, highly trusted entity model of private blockchains. Popularly called a consortium blockchain, permissioned blockchain has predetermined standards that enable a few selected nodes to participate in the verification of the transaction process.

A single person or company does not have full control over the information and access, thereby providing a secured network.

The market size of the hybrid type in the blockchain market is expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period.

Increasing number of blockchain startups to drive the SMEs segment in the blockchain market during 2020-2025

Based on organization size, the blockchain market is segmented into Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (SMEs) and large enterprises. The SMEs segment is expected to grow at a higher CAGR from 2020 to 2025, as there will be a sharp increase in the number of blockchain startups.

The blockchain technology can prove to be an asset for SMEs, as it helps reduce operational cost by eliminating intermediaries required for trading across regions.

Another area where SMEs can take advantage of the blockchain technology in their manual or semi-automatic processes, include invoicing, inventory, and payroll. For instance, smart contracts, a critical capability offered by the blockchain solution, can prove to be more economical, helping SMEs streamline their operations cost-effectively and at a faster rate.
