These platforms enable people, products, applications, and services to interoperate across the blockchain network, cloud providers, and organizations. The services segment includes various services required to deploy, execute, and maintain blockchain platform in an organization, including technology advisory and consulting, development and integration, and support and maintenance.
The platform segment is expected to witness high adoption during the forecast period as the enterprises are expected to realize the various benefits offered by the technology, including reduced value chain cost, increased security, and faster operations enabling them to gain a leading edge over competitors.

By Organisation size, the SME's to register the highest growth rate during the forecast period
The blockchain market has been segmented by organization size into SMEs and large enterprises. These organizations are categorized based on the number of employees working with them and on global standards. Enterprises of all sizes across the globe are focusing on the blockchain technology to revolutionize the traditional systems in their infrastructure and enhance the customer experience.
With the growing need to improve business efficiencies and maintain transparency in the business process, SMEs and large enterprises are focusing on leveraging advanced blockchain solutions for various applications, such as smart contracts, payments, compliance management, supply chain management, and loyalty and rewards management.
Organizations with less than 1,000 employees are categorized as SMEs. SMEs face several disadvantages, including high barriers to entry and lower protection from market conditions.

The blockchain technology can prove to be an asset in such scenarios, enabling an enterprise to reduce its cost by eliminating these intermediaries.
Another area where SMEs can take advantage of the blockchain technology in their basic day-to-day operations is manual or semi-automatic processes, including 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.
