Research Strategy:

To provide information on the past growth in the industry, the research team used Investopedia's CAGR Calculator. We used the 2017 market size as the initial value, the 2018 market size as the final value, and "1" as the number of periods.

While the data on the future CAGR was readily available, the information on historical CAGR wasn't included in market reports by research companies such as Mordor Intelligence or Grand View Research, industry reports by major consultancies (such as KPMG or PwC), or in the articles by business, finance and tech media, such as Forbes, The Wall Street Journal or TechCrunch. Those sources also didn't include the information on the pre-2017 global fintech market size, which limited the possibilities of triangulating the figure. The only available historical data that went back to 2016 was the free version of the 2017 Statista's FinTech Report. However, it only provided the total transaction value of different transaction types. Since it wasn't specified if we should provide historical or future CAGR, we decided to provide the pre-compiled future figure and the triangulated annual growth between 2017 and 2018.
