After more than 30 years of development, China's bill market has developed rapidly, with a market size of hundreds of billions. As China's real economy recovers, financial activities will become more active and commercial ticket financing methods will gradually diversify, providing opportunities for the development of electronic commercial tickets. Since 2009, China's electronic commercial bill industry has developed rapidly, and the scale of participants in the electronic commercial bill system has continued to expand. As of the end of 2019, China's bill trading system had access to 2,884 legal entities, 2,913 members, and 101,622 system participants.
According to the data of iiMedia research, as of August 2019, the number of blockchain projects promoted by governments around the world has reached 154, and the cumulative investment and financing scale of the global blockchain industry has reached US $10.369 billion. After ten years of development, blockchain technology has been applied in many fields, such as finance, government affairs, medical treatment, industrial manufacturing and so on, and the society's understanding of the value and applicable scenarios of blockchain has been constantly improved. The specific performance is that industrial capital returns to rationality, governments of all countries pay more attention to it, and the industry gradually moves from the barbaric growth stage to the standardized and orderly development stage. Although the blockchain industry has a broad prospect, but limited by the industry technology standard system that has not yet formed, the application and promotion of blockchain technology are subject to many restrictions. iiMedia consulting analysts believe that as the key technology of the next generation of Internet, governments and giant enterprises will increase efforts to layout the research and application of blockchain, and the competition for the right to formulate industry standards tends to be fierce. China has a good development foundation in the field of blockchain, and the number of related patent applications ranks first in the world. With the further liberalization of policies, China's blockchain industry will usher in a stage of rapid development, and it is expected to step into the first echelon of global blockchain industry in an all-round way.
With the development of China capital market, the securities industry has also maintained a stable growth. Under the impact of Covid-19 in 2020, the securities industry still has a good performance and accelerates the online development despite other industries going down. As the data of iiMedia Research showed, user scale of China securities APP reached 111 million in 2019, and is expected to increase to 129 million in 2020. At present, China online brokerage companies mainly include traditional brokerage companies that develop online securities business, pure online brokerage companies that mainly focus on online business, and Internet enterprises that cut into securities business from other fields. Traditional brokerage companies are still mainstream of the market relying on longer development time and brand reputation. However, in recent years, residents’ investment and financial management have become more diversified, and they have invested more in Hong Kong and US stock market. At the same time, the amount of enterprises listed in overseas market has increased, which requires brokerage companies with higher degree of marketization to provide investment banking, ESOP and other institutional services. Therefore, the pure online brokerage companies with Hong Kong and US stock as the main service market have broad development space and their future status will be improved.
