Global remittances

As per Migration and Development Brief, in 2022, the remittances for low- and middle-income countries increased by approximately 5%, reaching USD 626 billion, a decrease from 10.2% in 2021. Remittance flows to developing regions were influenced  by several factors in 2022, including the reopening of host economies after the COVID-19 pandemic. Inflation had a negative effect on individuals’ incomes, as well as the fluctuating appreciation for different currencies. Officially recorded remittance flows have declined for countries in which foreign and multiple exchange rates are experienced.

Statista’s report shows that the transaction value for the digital remittances market in South Korea is expected to reach USD 4 billion in 2023, with an annual growth rate of 3.65% resulting in a total amount of USD 5 billion by 2027.
