Global Micro Lending Market to Grow at a CAGR of 13% during 2021-2026, Aided by Partnership Between Banks and Microfinance Institutes

According to a new report by EMR titled, ‘Global Micro Lending Market Report and Forecast 2021-2026’, the market attained a value of about USD 152 billion in 2020. The industry is further expected to grow at a CAGR of 13% in the forecast period of 2021-2026 to reach a value of nearly USD 316 billion by 2026.

Micro lending is a popular means of financing, to aid economically weaker sections of society, or small business owners, or solo entrepreneurs, which is driving the industry growth. With commercial banks expanding their services in micro financing, the industry is growing steadily. Banks are increasingly drawn by lower risks, stability and potential growth opportunities in the micro lending industry. Furthermore, partnerships between microfinance institutes and banks are leveraging growth prospects for both the firms, thus, further invigorating market growth. Such integration is capturing a wider population as microfinance institutes have a greater knowledge about the needs of borrowers and banks have a huge capital base. Moreover, with technology being coupled with finance, the operating cost comes down as transactions become simple, thereby enabling increased investments in micro lending sector, hence, augmenting market growth.

The market is furthered by the various expansion strategies employed by several banks, such as HDFC Bank Limited (NYSE: HDB) and ICICI Bank Limited. In addition, the Microfinance Institutions Network (MFIN), India, in collaboration with KPMG announced the release of a special report, titled ‘Rejuvenating Microfinance in India- Embracing Digital’ in March 2021. The report documented the outreach of microfinance in India, thus strengthening the industry growth in the region. Further, with embracing technology, almost 100% of disbursements are now cashless and institutions are increasingly using data-driven predictive analysis to support business decisions and insights, thereby reducing operation costs, ease of transactions, and promoting digital literacy, owing to which the microfinance industry is surging. Efforts by the MFIN are now directed at maintaining a customer-centric approach coupled with technological upgrades to focus on fast loan origination and efficient customer services. These factors are thus augmenting the market growth of micro lending.
