In this study, conducted on behalf of the Federal Ministry of Finance, we provide the first comprehensive analysis of the German FinTech industry. We quantify the market volume of the industry between 2007 and 2015. On the basis of this data, we also predict the future development of eight segments of the FinTech market, offering detailed forecasts for the years 2020, 2025, and 2035. Moreover, we provide a comprehensive overview of current trends and the drivers of growth that have affected the FinTech industry in the past, as well as the factors that could spur and hinder growth within it in the future.
