India Consumer Finance Market
India Consumer Finance Market Size Zooming 5.4X at Robust CAGR of 32.34% to Reach Whopping USD 184.92 Billion by 2029
Published | 21 November 2023
India consumer finance market is booming because of an increasing digital banking and growing consumer preference towards the use of credit cards
BlueWeave Consulting, a leading strategic consulting and market research firm, in its recent study, estimated the India consumer finance market size at USD 34.42 billion in 2022. During the forecast period between 2023 and 2029, BlueWeave expects the India consumer finance market size to grow at a significant CAGR of 32.34% reaching a value of USD 184.92 billion by 2029. Major growth drivers for the India consumer finance market include the rising per capita income, robust economic expansion, accelerated urbanization, and increased consumer purchasing power. A pivotal factor propelling this expansion is the surging preference for credit card utilization among consumers. Credit cards offer diverse advantages, including rewards, promotional perks such as discounted movie tickets and flight bookings. Particularly noteworthy is the increasing popularity of Equated Monthly Installments (EMIs) with either no or minimal interest rates, which is anticipated to contribute to the market's growth by 2024. Also, the market stands to gain from the readily available array of loan types, including home loans, auto loans, and education loans, provided by both public and private banks and financial institutions. The influence of demonetization on the transition to digital transactions has been positive, albeit with a moderate long-term impact on credit card usage. Another driving force is the enhanced accessibility of consumer durable finance through partnerships between major electronic retail chains like Croma and Vijay Sales and financial service providers like Bajaj FinServ and Tata Capital, further amplifying the market's growth potential in the forecast period. However, interest rate volatility and lack of financial literacy are anticipated to restrain the overall market growth during the period in analysis.
India Consumer Finance Market – Overview
The India consumer finance market refers to the sector of the Indian financial industry that specializes in providing various financial products and services to individual consumers. These financial products and services can include credit cards, personal loans, home loans, car loans, consumer durable finance, and other forms of credit and lending solutions. The market caters to the financial needs of individual consumers by offering them access to credit, facilitating purchases of consumer goods, and supporting various personal financial requirements. It is influenced by factors such as economic growth, consumer spending power, urbanization, and changing preferences for financial products and services.
Impact of COVID-19 on India Consumer Finance Market
COVID-19 pandemic adversely affected the India consumer finance market. Lockdowns, economic uncertainty, and disruptions to income streams led to a surge in loan defaults and delayed repayments. Financial institutions faced increased credit risk, necessitating stricter lending criteria. On the bright side, digital adoption accelerated, promoting online loan applications and contactless payments. Additionally, the Reserve Bank of India introduced regulatory measures to provide relief, including moratoriums and restructuring options. As the economy recovers, consumer finance is adapting to the new normal, emphasizing risk management, digital strategies, and financial inclusion to navigate the ongoing challenges.
India Consumer Finance Market – By Type
By type, the India consumer finance market is split into Secured Consumer Finance and Unsecured Consumer Finance segments. The unsecured consumer finance segment is expected to hold a higher share in the India consumer finance market during the forecast period by type. Unsecured loans, such as personal loans and credit cards, do not require collateral, making them more appealing to a broader range of consumers. This inclusivity is vital in a diverse country like India, where not everyone possesses significant assets for collateral. Furthermore, the convenience of obtaining unsecured credit through digital channels has accelerated its popularity. While interest rates may be higher, the demand for quick, hassle-free credit has driven the unsecured segment's dominance in the market. Also, the unsecured consumer finance segment includes personal loan, home improvement loan, credit card, consumer durable finance, and education loan.
Major players operating in the India Consumer Finance Market include Bajaj Capital Limited, Birla Global Finance Limited, Housing Development Finance Corporation, ICICI Group, LIC Finance Limited, L&T Finance Limited, Mahindra & Mahindra Financial Services Limited, Muthoot Finance Ltd, Cholamandalam, and Tata Capital Financial Services Ltd.
