  • PayMate Industry Overview

Industry Statistics

  • India is one of the world’s fastest growing digital economies and enterprises in India are adopting, and growing with increased access to, software, technology and digitally enabled financial services. The move towards digital transformation in corporations can be seen from the robust IT spending in India. Overall spending on IT is set to accelerate in the coming years to reach USD120-130 billion by financial year 2026 as per RedSeer estimates.
  • The B2B payment technology offers several benefits such as reduced payment transaction charges and improvement of sales of the organization to domestic business owners, which drives the growth of the market. In addition, the rise in the adoption of cash in advance payment technology such as credit cards for purchasing products from domestic businesses propels the growth of the market in this segment.
  • B2B payments are made in return of goods and services a business provides another business. The payments can be made digitally via RTGS or NEFT, commercial credit cards, or using the traditional modes of payment like cash and cheque. 
  • B2B payments are a much larger market, usually a multiple of the country’s GDP. Enterprises has high cost of switching from one payment mode to another so they have greater stickiness as adoption of a payment solution or ERP requires adoption from various departments and change in processes to shift to digital vendor payments.
  • In 2021, India and GCC countries constitute 9% of the global B2B payments market and provides a huge market opportunity for B2B payment players. According to RedSeer, it is expected that the B2B payments market across these two geographies will grow to around USD17 trillion by 2025. Demonetization, government push for digitization and technological adoption are the key drivers for India’s B2B payments growth.
  • According to RedSeer, the total TPV for B2B online payments (including cross border) in India was ₹560 trillion (approximately USD 8 trillion) for Fiscal 2019, ₹490 trillion (approximately USD 7 trillion) for Fiscal 2021, and expected to grow to ₹735 trillion (approximately USD 10-11 trillion) by Fiscal 2026, representing a CAGR of 8% between Fiscals 2021 and 2026.1
  • B2B utility payments are an approximately USD 80 billion market in Fiscal 2022. The utility bills majorly are of 4 types, namely landline and mobile bills, electricity bills, water bills and broadband bills. 
  • By providing utility bill payment services, businesses can make payments via their commercial credit card or other digital modes.The commercial credit card payments would enable them to increase their account payable days and utilize that capital. As per RedSeer estimates, the overall B2B utility payments market is USD 80 billion in Fiscal 2022. In Fiscal 2022, 62% of B2B utility payments were online.
  • The major factor driving the need for B2B payments among businesses is rising export and import of products and services throughout the world. Furthermore, firms anticipate dealing with other nations in order to expand, which increases cross-border commercial transactions. Furthermore, the increased use of technology in B2B payments, as well as the fast expansion of local SMEs and medium-sized businesses engaged in large trades, function as important driving forces in the worldwide B2B payments market.

Future Prospects

  • As per RedSeer estimates, global B2B payments are expected to grow from USD130-135 trillion in 2021 to USD 165-170 trillion in 2025. Cross border transactions are expected to account for approximately 16% of total B2B transactions (by value) in 2025. Even now as economies are evolving digitally, approximately 51% of payments rely on cash and cheque, while card occupies only 3% as per RedSeer estimates. As companies digitize their payments, it is expected that cash and cheque component will decrease to 46% of the domestic B2B payments and the digital payment modes (ACH, cards, etc.) share will increase
  • According to RedSeer, the total global TPV for B2B payments, excluding cross-border, grew from about USD 101 trillion in 2018 to USD 114 trillion in 2021 and is expected to grow to approximately USD 142 trillion in 2025, which would represent a CAGR of 5.7% from 2020. 
  • It is expected that cards will be increasingly adopted as payment infrastructure increases and businesses adopt commercial credit cards for B2B payments rather than employee driven travel and entertainment expenses, According to RedSeer.
  • India’s B2B payments market is poised to grow from USD 7.6-8.0 trillion in Fiscal 2022 to USD 10-11 trillion in Fiscal 2026 as per RedSeer Estimates. In Fiscal 2022, cross-border payments contributed to 5% of the total B2B payments. In line with the global trends, India’s B2B transactions involve most cash and cheque contributing to 55% of domestic B2B payments in Fiscal 2022. According to RedSeer, it is expected that domestic B2B payments in India will increase from USD7.5-7.8 trillion in Fiscal 2022 to USD 9-10 trillion in Fiscal 2026 with commercial credit cards increasing their share to 0.6% in Fiscal 2026.

Government Initiatives

  • Along with RBI, the government of India has also taken initiatives to boost the growth of B2B fintech players. In May 2020, the government exempted businesses from mandatory use of e-payments facilities such as RuPay and UPI. Previously, businesses failing to comply were required to pay ₹5,000 per day as penalty.
  • To promote adoption of B2B payment, in September 2020, the UPI steering committee endorsed UPI B2B transactions as a separate category within the UPI ecosystem, which enables instant B2B transfer of money from one bank account to another via mobile phones. Government e-marketplace (GeM) is a one stop portal that helps facilitate procurement required by various government departments and helps government departments get products at best value and facilitates demand aggregation along with several other tools like e-bidding and reverse auction.
  • Electricity and landline bills form 80-85% of the market. Traditionally these utility bills were generally paid in cash or cheque at their respective offices or over the counter. To encourage digital adoption, in Nov 2014, RBI mandated Bharat Bill Payment System (BBPS), which was launched to offer integrated and interoperable payment services to customers. This indicates that the B2B utility bill payments provide a great opportunity for B2B payment providers in India.
