Key Market Trends
Banks in the Service Providers Segment Dominate the Market
Corporate banks actively intermediate trade transactions, and in recent years competitive pressures have pushed them to become more efficient and offer more effective services. Trade finance is dominated by banks, with HSBC Holdings PLC, Citigroup Inc., Standard Chartered PLC, BNP Paribas SA, JPMorgan Chase & Co. and Deutsche Bank AG being among the largest providers, though the market has attracted a growing number of technology-led platforms and capital market investors in recent years. A supply chain finance program is typically set up by a corporate buyer with a bank or alternative finance provider to offer suppliers early payment on their invoices. This part of banks’ trade finance business is already going through a significant growth spurt: Bank of America Corp., for one, has seen an increase of roughly 200% in the number of invoices being financed through such programs in the first year of the pandemic. Not only did the bank increase the number of programs it finances, but it also expanded existing ones to cover more suppliers. While lockdowns and travel restrictions in 2020 took a heavy toll on trade and those that finance it, industry revenues are on track and reached pre-pandemic levels in 2021. In the first six months of 2021, the world’s 10 largest transaction banks recorded a 6% year-over-year increase in revenues from trade finance.
