Global LendTech Market is valued at approximately USD 8 billion in 2021 and is anticipated to grow with a healthy growth rate of more than 23.2% over the forecast period 2022-2029. LendTech refers to the application of an intuitive loan point-of-sale platform from banks, credit unions, and private lenders connecting to borrowers. There are certain benefits offered by digital lending platforms, including improved loan optimization, quicker decision-making, compliance with regulations and norms, and greater company efficiency. The increasing unmet financing needs of SMEs and growing internet penetration and adoption of smartphone devices are key factors driving the market growth.
With the rise of startup culture, the unmet financing needs of SMEs are increasing which is likely to drive the adoption of LendTech platforms and services over the forecast period. For instance – as per International Finance Corporation (IFC) estimates, 65 million businesses, or 40% of formal micro, small, and medium-sized enterprises (MSMEs) in developing nations, have an annual unmet financing need of $5.2 trillion, or 1.4 times the amount of worldwide MSME lending at present. The largest portion of the global finance gap (46%) is accounted for by East Asia and the Pacific, which is followed by Latin America and the Caribbean (23%) and Europe and Central Asia (15%). The gap volume varies greatly from one place to another. Particularly in the Middle East and North Africa, Latin America, the Caribbean, and the Caribbean have the largest ratios of the funding gap to potential demand, 87% and 88%, respectively. Also, growing digitization in BFSI sector and rising adoption of cloud services and automation in the lending process would create a lucrative growth prospectus for the market over the forecast period. However, the high cost of LendTech platforms and services stifles market growth throughout the forecast period of 2022-2029.
The key regions considered for the Global LendTech Market study include Asia Pacific, North America, Europe, Latin America, and Rest of the World. North America dominated the market in terms of revenue, owing to the increasing spending on digitization from leading banks and credit unions as well as presence of leading market players in the region. Whereas Asia Pacific is expected to grow with the highest CAGR during the forecast period, owing to factors such as rising expansion of digital banking units and growing emergence of private sector banks and non-banking financial institutions in the region.
