B2B Payments Platform Market
The global B2B payments platform market size was worth around USD 942.67 billion in 2021 and is predicted to grow to around USD 1564 billion by 2028 with a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of roughly 8.35% between 2022 and 2028. The report analyzes the global B2B payments platform market’s drivers, restraints/challenges, and the effect they have on the demands during the projection period. In addition, the report explores emerging opportunities in the B2B payments platform market.
Business-to-business (B2B) payments refer to the monetary transactions or payments between two organizations for the sales of goods or services. For example, the money-related transactions that would take place between an office and another organization that supplied them with the office equipment. Whenever there is an invoice generated for one company by another, B2B payment systems come into play.
Some of the industries that are the largest consumers of business-to-business payment platforms are; manufacturing covering over 28.8% of the global market share, professional & business service with 21.2% of the share, finance, insurance, leasing, retail, and real estate with 17.8%, mining comprises 5.6% of the market, and wholesale trade covers 5.2% of the global market cap. There are a few key pointers that separate B2B from customer-to-business (C2B) payment models. Some of them include; volume where payments in the B2B model comprise the larger volume of payments as compared to C2B, and frequency of the payment since the frequency is higher in B2B models.
However, deciding on the correct payment model between two organizations for a particular business is not obstacle-free. There are a few questions that organizations struggle to find answers to. Since there are so many payment methods available and each organization has its own requirements, the availability of multiple options like online payments, cryptocurrency, cheques, cash, etc. leads to more confusion.
The global market had a significant impact due to the onset of Covid-19. One major shift in the B2B payments platform trend was the rise in the adoption of online platforms over offline modes. Since the entire world was forced to work remotely and to the closure of offices and other non-essential operational units, more attention was diverted towards searching for options where minimum human intervention was needed thus influencing the growth of online payment modules.
Growth in import and export or trade exchange to propel market growth
The global B2B payments platform market growth may be attributed to the rising transactions taking place between various business models. One of the key aspects that have aided the growth in adoption rate is the increasing international export and import between economies since international trade occurs between organizations that deal with heavy funds. As per the May 2022 report of the US International Trade in Goods & Services, the USA export value was over USD 256 billion.
These numbers are rising owing to the higher demand for goods in the global market assisted by the increasing disposable income of the general population. Some of the other factors that influence the change in export-import value are favorable government policies, the income of the economy, subsidiaries for exporters, import restrictions, etc. There is a growing need for global footprint expansion amongst organizations. This can be achieved with the help of strategic decisions and an increase in trade thus boosting cross-border payments between businesses.
Another factor assisting the rise in B2B payments trends is the exhaustive measures undertaken by small and mid-size firms to increase their profitability index. Multiple tie-ups like outsourcing of information technology (IT) services, HR systems, internet services, and others are a few of the examples that take place between two organizations resulting in global market growth
Security concerns related to digital payments may impede the market growth
Data security is a major concern of any organization. Business institutes deal with large sums of money, and they are always under the radar of hackers or security breaches. As per a recent Deloitte study, more than 20% of mid-size companies have faced security breaches at least once. Any transactional platform not only holds data related to money transfers but personal and security details as well. In 2021, payment processors at Amazon and Swiggy faced data breaches where details related to more than 3.5 crore users were compromised. Such concerns are expected to have negative implications on the global market cap unless security systems upgrade so that they can never be compromised.
Time and cost saver benefits of online platforms to provide growth opportunities during the forecast period
In the case of online B2B platforms, repetitive tasks can be avoided thus saving the organization's time and cost since tasks like depositing and reconciling cheques can be completely eliminated. In the case of online transactions, almost all platforms provide timely automated deductions which reduce the risk of faulty payments or missing out deadlines thus saving the company from extra expenses. This provides the employees more time to deal with other critical aspects. In fact, in the case of online payments, data is recorded and kept for safekeeping, unlike offline modes where transaction-related details may get misplaced. These benefits may attract more tech-savvy users to the B2B payments platform during the forecast period
Transaction-related fees to challenge global market growth
Many offline and online payment platforms charge companies or account holders for maintenance and transactions completed with the aid of the platform. These extra charges sometimes may not be suitable for small-scale companies who may see this as an extra cost. In case the account maintenance rate is higher, organizations may choose other options to make their payments. There are also certain restrictions related to payment dates like payments raised on bank holidays may take more days for completion which might sometimes not be in the company's favor. These aspects are expected to create challenges for the expansion of the global market size
