Published on Dec 21, 2021

According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled "Trade Finance Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2022-2027," the global trade finance market size reached US$ 44.8 Billion in 2021. Trade finance is a financial assistance offered to enterprises to help facilitate international trade and commerce. It involves the use of various products and financial instruments, which enables them to access working capital, thereby achieving liquidity to make investments, pay salaries, and pay suppliers. Unlike general finance, the functional wing of trade finance involves the introduction of a third party, such as banks, insurance companies, exporters, importers, trade finance firms, and credit agencies, to manage the transaction between the buyer and seller. Apart from this, trade finance aids in controlling the goods, monitoring the trade cycle through the transaction, providing security over the receivables, and mitigating the risks involved in international trade transactions.

We are regularly tracking the direct effect of COVID-19 on the market, along with the indirect influence of associated industries. These observations will be integrated into the report.

Global Trade Finance Market Trends:

The increasing global trade activities due to rapid urbanization and industrialization, particularly in emerging economies, is facilitating the demand for safe and secure financial instruments, such as trade finance. This represents the key factor driving the market growth. In line with this, digitization of trade financing operations has enabled enterprises to automate large volumes of financial and transactional information, which is acting as another growth-inducing factor. Additionally, the increasing utilization of developing technologies, such as optical character recognition (OCR), radio frequency identification (RFID), and quick response (QR) codes, to identify and track shipments and enhance the digital conversion of trading documents are further catalyzing the market growth. Besides this, the rising integration of trade finance with blockchain, artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning (ML), and the internet of things (IoT) technologies have enabled organizations to recognize market patterns, predict future issues, resolve concerns, anticipate demand, and take appropriate measures. This, in turn, is accelerating the flow of transactions, thereby creating a positive outlook for the market. Other factors responsible for the market growth include increasing investments in the banking, financial services, and insurance (BFSI) sector, the implementation of favorable government policies, and improving supply chain capabilities. Looking forward, the market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 6.57% during 2022-2027.
