Global Trade Finance Market Forecast and Trends

Growth Drivers

Increasing Adoption of Advanced Technologies

The increasing adoption of advanced technologies, such as blockchain, AI, IoT, machine learning, etc., is emerging as the major driving factor for the growth of the global trade finance market. For instance, blockchain technology is prominently being used in trade finance for recording all transactions with their timestamp and unique cryptographic signature. Furthermore, this technology ensures that only authorized personnel have access to the information. Therefore, the trade finance market is expected to flourish during the forecast period.

Various Benefits of Trade Finance Products

The trade finance products are gaining significant traction owing to the benefits it offers to the businesses against the vulnerabilities of international trade. The tools allow buyers to avoid paying upfront for imports before sales and also provide exporters with security for their sales. This helps in facilitating trust in bilateral trade as the payment becomes the responsibility of the bank. Furthermore, trade finance improves cash flow and increases operational efficiency.

Restraints

Inaccessibility to Trade Finance Services

According to a report by Trade Finance Global, there is a huge gap in demand and supply of trade finance products, especially in Southeast Asian countries. The report revealed that this region generated around 50% of the trade finance products demand in the international trade finance during the period of 2014-2018, and it also amounted to 40% of the global rejections. This acts as a major restraining factor for the growth of the global trade finance market.

Impact of COVID-19 on the Global Trade Finance Market

As opposed to the predictions by government or financial institutions, the trade finance market did not perform well during the COVID-19 pandemic. The crises resulted in a dramatic fall in global trade due to restrictions in countries and demand and supply chains. The International Finance Corporation reports that the decline in trade because of the contraction in the production of goods and export volumes negatively affected the market for trade finance. Although the market is predicted to recover during the forecast period as the production and distribution operations resume, the pace is expected to be slow.

Global Trade Finance Market - By Finance Type

Based on finance types, the global trade finance market is segmented into structured trade finance, supply chain finance, and traditional trade finance. Traditional trade finance accounted for the largest share in the trade finance market since it engages in typical services of issuing letters of credit, contract guarantees, and performance bonds, that may or may not require the involvement of a bank. However, structured trade finance is gaining significant traction as it helps in promoting bi-lateral trading relationships.

Global Trade Finance Market - By End-User

Based on end-users, the global trade finance market is segmented into small & medium enterprises and large enterprises. The large enterprise segment accounts for the largest market share owing to the large volumes of international transactions and trades the multinational conglomerates and companies engage in on daily basis. Trade finances help large enterprises minimize the risks of loss during international instability. However, small and medium enterprises are also gaining significant traction as trade financing instruments help these businesses expand beyond geographical boundaries against securities.

Global Trade Finance Market - Regional Insights

Geographically, the global trade finance market is segmented into North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, Latin America, Middle-East & Africa. Among these regions, North America dominates the global trade finance market owing to the favorable government policies and financing resources in developed nations such as the United States. Furthermore, a high concentration of trade finance service providers, such as FrontWell Capital, Scotiabank, etc., that helps the businesses facilitate their transactions also plays a crucial role in propelling the growth of the region. However, the Asia-Pacific region is projected to witness the highest CAGR during the forecast period.
