SAN FRANCISCO, Sept. 15, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- The global alternative data market size is anticipated to reach USD 17.35 billion by 2027, expanding at a CAGR of 40.1% from 2020 to2027, according to a new report by Grand View Research, Inc. The increasing emphasis on gaining alpha from hedge funds is expected to boost the demand for alternative data. The asset managers from hedge funds, mutual funds, private equity funds, pension funds, unit trusts, life insurance companies, and other BFSI entities are highly inclining to use alternative data to derive predictive insights. Moreover, the use of alternative data for risk management processes is also expected to drive the market growth.
Nowadays, data sources are not limited to transactions, and email receipts as companies are finding ways to extract data from various emerging sources. These include social media, web traffic, mobile devices, sensors, IoT-based devices, satellites, and e-commerce portals. The data analysts utilize this data in correlation with each other to derive various hidden patterns and insights. However, the data collected from some of these sources conflict with privacy regulations such as the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) and the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Thus, the data aggregators and end-users need regulatory compliance, which ensures their datasets are free from Personal Identifiable Information (PII).
Key suggestions from the report:
Amidst the coronavirus pandemic, the companies are using alternative data collected from social media, mobile phones, applications, wearables, and other IoT-based devices to assess changes in consumer behavior patterns related to purchases and interests
The credit and debit card transactions segment is anticipated to exhibit the highest CAGR from 2020 to 2027 owing to the high accuracy of the data type and significant demand from asset managers

North America dominated the market in 2019 with a market share of more than 33% and is estimated to continue dominating the global market over the forecast period of 2020 to 2027.

The acquisitions and partnership initiatives from companies such as Nasdaq and S&P Global Platts is further expected to fuel the regional market growth. On the other hand, Asia Pacific is expected to emerge as the fastest-growing regional market over the forecast period. This is due to rising use-cases of alternative data in BFSI, retail, automotive, and telecommunication industries.
