Sumsub, an all-in-one verification platform, published its guide, Streamlining identity verification in emerging markets. This new resource will help businesses in the fintech, crypto, gambling and trading industries onboard more users from developing countries, specifically Argentina, Brazil, India, Indonesia and Nigeria.

Here are the top 5 highlights from the guide:

  • According to the Sumsub Identity Fraud Study 2022, Nigeria has some of the highest rates of ID forgery in the world. In 2022, Nigeria accounted for 5.4% of fraud detected worldwide, underscoring the challenges for companies onboarding Nigerian users.  However, 90 million Nigerians have already registered for a National Identity Number (NIN), which allows companies to verify people without dealing with potentially forged documents;

  • The biggest KYC challenges in Argentina are poor quality cameras and photos, which lead to verification failure;

  • Online identity fraud is seriously impacting markets in Brazil, including crescent online retail, telecom, finance and banking. More than half of the documents forged in Brazil do not contain MRZs (machine-readable zones), which makes them especially easy to fabricate;

  • About 96% of India’s 1.4 billion population are already registered in the country’s biometric ID system, Aadhar; and

  • More than 95% of the population of Indonesia has e-KTP cards linked to a government database of citizen identities and biometrics. The country also has the largest and fastest-growing digital economy in Southeast Asia, expected to reach $130 billion by 2025, primarily led by the e-commerce industry.

These countries are embracing key digitalization trends. This is particularly the case for identity verification, where large-scale digital ID initiatives have been replacing paper documents. This means that local users are getting accustomed to database verification, rather than physically scanning and uploading their IDs. Therefore, government databases may well replace document-based verification in the near future, allowing businesses to drastically simplify user onboarding in these regions.

In the guide, Sumsub’s experts cover how document-free verification can streamline user onboarding in developing countries, enabling companies to onboard 2B+ people without asking them to upload their IDs. This method—which Sumsub calls 1click verification—uses government databases to speed up onboarding from 50 seconds to just 4.5 seconds on average, helping improve pass rates by 35% on average. All this can be done without compromising data quality, security and user experience.

“Businesses in the fintech, crypto, gambling and trading sectors can use our guide to learn more about document-free verification, as well as the specifics of national documents, local user habits, fraud trends and AML regulations in developing countries, and more. All this will help navigate the verification landscape in Argentina, Brazil, India, Indonesia and Nigeria, with the right insights to seize market opportunity and deal with local KYC and AML challenges,” said Andrew Sever, co-founder and CEO of Sumsub.

Reading Time: 3 minutes

 

The “Sports Betting Market Size, Share & Trends Analysis Report By Platform, By Betting Type (Fixed Odds Wagering, Exchange Betting, Live/In-Play Betting, eSports Betting), By Sports Type, By Region, And Segment Forecasts, 2023 – 2030” report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets’s offering.

The global sports betting market size is estimated to reach USD 182.12 billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of 10.3% from 2023 to 2030.

This growth of the market is driven by the proliferation of internet infrastructure and evolving regulatory landscape of the entire gambling industry across the world.

In addition, the increase in the number of sports events and leagues worldwide such as the NFL, FIFA World Cup, Carabao Cup, and UEFA Europa League has positively influenced the growth of the market.

Furthermore, an increase in disposable income and the rising usage of AI and blockchain technologies to improve the prediction algorithms in betting software are likely to boost the growth of the market during the forecast period.

Esports, which is an organized, multiplayer video game competition, played by professional players, individuals, or teams, has gained massive popularity during the COVID-19 pandemic and witnessed a surge in the number of events worldwide. Market players are utilizing the increased number of esports events to offer an opportunity for their customers to bet on such esports competitions and earn extra income.

The surge in online sports events backed up by a rise in the number of esports tournaments offers stable growth opportunities for the betting industry. For instance, according to the report by the U.K. Gambling Commission, there was a huge 2922% year-on-year rise in esports betting revenue from March 2019 to March 2020.

Major players in the global betting industry now operate via official websites and online platforms to cater to the increased demand for sports betting. Additionally, the market players are expanding their presence across countries with supportive regulatory compliance. For instance, in December 2021, Unikrn Inc., a global esports betting & entertainment media company introduced its betting platform in Canada and Brazil. In addition to this launch, the company has further announced to increase its presence across a greater number of regulated markets in 2023.

The lives of multiple households around the globe have been affected during the COVID-19 pandemic. In addition, this situation led to the cancellation of worldwide sports matches and the closure of land-based casinos and betting shops. However, the pandemic expanded the online sports betting industry due to the rise of esports and virtual sporting events. The popularity of online sports betting increased during the pandemic with an upsurge in the number of betting participants. For instance, according to a study conducted by Public Health England, online casino gambling had seen growth by nearly 9.0% during the pandemic. Furthermore, as per the GB Gambling Commission survey, betting habits among people have changed due to Covid-19, with mobile devices continuing to be the most popular medium for gambling. The survey also found a massive inclination towards esports betting across the globe.

  • The online platform segment dominated the market in 2022 and is expected to showcase the highest CAGR during the forecast period
