Global Peer-to-Peer Lending Market is valued at approximately USD 68 billion in 2019 and is anticipated to grow with a healthy growth rate of more than 30% over the forecast period 2020-2027. Peer-to-peer (P2P) lending is the financial practice of lending money to businesses or individuals through using online services that match lenders with borrowers. P2P lending is usually developed to operate with reduced overhead and offer the services more reasonably priced than conventional financial institutions. As a result, lenders can get higher returns in comparison to investment products and savings offered by banks, while borrowers can make money at a lower rate of interest, even after the P2P lending firms get hold of a fee for providing the match-making platform and credit checking the borrower. Furthermore, the recent outbreak of COVID-19 pandemic around the world has been adversely impacting the banking and financial sector, due to the government imposed strict actions on movement and there are lower possibilities to access banking infrastructure. Thus, traditional banks are unable to deliver financial facilities, however, in these modern days, P2P lending companies are offering all the financial facilities, which has resulted in widening the customer base for P2P lending platforms during the COVID-19 crisis thereby, influencing the growth of the global Peer-to-Peer Lending market. Moreover, the rise in acceptance of digital banking by individuals and large enterprises & SMEs, along with the technological developments in the customary banking system to enhance transparency and low operating cost are the few factors responsible for the CAGR of the market during the forecast period. As per the U.S. Federal Reserve, it is estimated that digital banking users in the United States has increased from 26% to 51% between 2012 and 2017. Similarly, according to the BBA organization 2017, to the data from the BBA’s main bank and building society groups 2017, it is estimated that the number of people regularly using banking apps increased with 12% from 17.6 million in 2015 to 19.6 million in 2016, equivalent to 37% of UK adult population. However, the risk of losing money and the implementation of stringent government regulation for loan processing in P2P lending are the major factors restraining the market growth over the forecast period of 2020-2027.
