Dublin, March 07, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Australia Buy Now Pay Later Business and Investment Opportunities Databook - 75+ KPIs on BNPL Market Size, End-Use Sectors, Market Share, Product Analysis, Business Model, Demographics - Q1 2023 Update" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.

BNPL payments are expected to grow by 20.5% on an annual basis to reach US$14,241.5 million in 2023.

The BNPL payment industry in Australia has recorded strong growth over the last four quarters, supported by increased ecommerce penetration.

Medium to long term growth story of BNPL industry in Australia remains strong. BNPL payment adoption is expected to grow steadily over the forecast period, recording a CAGR of 10.9% during 2023-2028. The BNPL Gross Merchandise Value in the country will increase from US$11,822.1 million in 2022 to reach US$23,936.7 million by 2028.

The Australian buy now pay later (BNPL) industry, which has until now enjoyed optimum conditions to thrive, is facing a series of fresh hurdles from the regulators. The absence of interest charges has exempted the BNPL business model from the Credit Act. However, as the regulators look at adding consumer protection, the sector might soon be regulated under the National Consumer Credit Protection Act.

Furthermore, the operations of the BNPL firms have been hit significantly amid the high-interest rate environment. The surge in the cost of living is also affecting the consumers' ability to repay BNPL loans. In the short-term, spike in the usage of BNPL loans is expected as cash-constrained consumers move into the Christmas period. However, the market is projected to remain under pressure due to macroeconomic and regulatory factors.

Australia considers regulating BNPL firms like credit card providers

A senate inquiry into fintech firms in 2020 concluded that there was no need to treat BNPL providers like credit card firms. Both the Reserve Bank and Australian Securities and Investments Commission had multiple looks at the sector and reached a similar conclusion. However, the hardship faced by customers and the increasing noise from consumer groups has forced the hand of regulators in Australia.

In November 2022, the Australian Treasury announced three options for regulating the industry. The first approach implies stronger affordability checks and self-regulation for BNPL firms. The second option would bring the industry partially under the Credit Act, meaning that the providers will have to obtain credit licenses to remain operational. The third option would bring the entire sector under the same umbrella as credit card firms.

While Zip is expected to prefer the second option as it already has a credit license, Afterpay would prefer the first, and lesser restrictive option. The sector will be regulated in Australia, just the road the government will take to impose regulation on the BNPL industry is not clear.

BNPL providers are looking to tap into the growing travel spending through strategic alliances

Travel and tourism activities have recorded a strong rebound in Australia, after the pandemic-induced slump and travel restrictions. With consumers increasingly spending on travel, despite the current macroeconomic factors that have forced many to cut down on their expenses, BNPL providers forging alliances to tap into the potentially high-growth market.

In November 2022, Zip, the largest BNPL provider in Australia, announced that the firm had entered into a strategic collaboration with Jetstar, the leading low fare airline.

Under the alliance, Zip will provide travellers with a more flexible way to pay for their airfares. In the travel segment, Zip also entered into a strategic partnership with Qantas in May 2022. With customers ramping up their travel activities, the strategic collaboration just ahead of the holiday season is expected to drive more volume for the firm.

Like Zip, rival Afterpay also entered into a strategic collaboration with Expedia in November 2022. The alliance with the travel booking platform will allow Afterpay users to pay for airfare, hotel booking, and other travel-related expenses.

With travellers becoming increasingly budget-conscious, the demand for BNPL products is expected to remain strong in the travel and tourism sector from the short to medium-term perspective. Consequently, the publisher foresees more such strategic alliances in the Australian market.
