DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Aug 17, 2018--The "Global Blockchain Market In The Energy Sector - Growth, Trend and Forecasts (2018 - 2023)" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.

Blockchain Market in the Energy Sector Market is expected to register a CAGR of over 50%, during the forecast period 2018-2023.

The global energy market is estimated to be USD 8.9 trillion and is largely monopolized. By incorporating blockchain technology, the industry can move from its present centralized architecture to a more decentralized peer-to-peer energy trading market, thus allowing consumers to trade energy within a peer-to-peer market. Further, this also allows more transparency and security across the enterprise as well.

There are a number of blockchain-based enterprises that are already working on tailored energy solutions. For instance, Electron, which is a UK startup and Power Ledger an Australian blockchain-based energy company are some of the firms that are working to implement the peer-to-peer energy trading market. Also, Blox Labs Inc., in partnership with Sonoro Energy Ltd., has commenced development of PetroBLOX, a blockchain-based smart contract supply chain management platform for the global oil and gas industry.

All these factors coupled with the growing investments by venture capitalists, investments in microgrids, greater acceptance of cryptocurrency, collaborations between blockchain companies and energy corporations have been instrumental in driving the global blockchain market in the energy sector. However, the lack of regulations and the presence of open source platforms is hindering the growth of this market.
