Qatar’s fintech landscape

Qatar’s developed economy encouraged the growth of fintech solutions, its digital investment market reaching an Asset under Management of USD 100 million in 2023. As per Statista’s report, the market is set to present a revenue growth of 19% in 2024, while the number of users is expected to reach 2,337 thousand users by 2027. 

The Qatar Fintech Hub, created by the Qatar Development Bank,
has announced that its objective is to improve the economic development of the country through the Qatar Central Bank in 2023. Officials have said that their focus will be on emerging trends and market demand, including payment technology, insurance technology, BNPL, and collective debt-based crowdfunding. Their goal towards the fintech industry was to develop an ecosystem that will allow the market to grow in Qatar, therefore partnering with the Qatar Central Bank, Qatar Financial Centre, Microsoft, Visa, Mastercard, Qatar Insurance Company, Meeza, and Blockchain Research Institute.

According to Bloomberg, the COVID-19 pandemic has increased technology implementation in the entire business field. As customers moved towards digital products, including mobile payments, credit card applications, online loans, and money transfers, almost all major banks in Qatar provide mobile banking solutions. Qatar constantly improves its fintech environment to allow the expansion of local and international fintech companies, and recently, the Qatar Central Bank added fintech to its strategic agenda by instituting a fintech section, developing a regulatory sandbox, and addressing fintech regulations.
