The Asia-Pacific B2B payment industry size was valued at USD 418 billion in 2021. It is projected to reach USD 1018 billion by 2030, growing at a CAGR of 10.4% during the forecast period (2022-2030).
Business-to-business (B2B) payment promotes safer transactions for merchants requiring recurring, periodic transactions and offers a variety of tasks to end users, including accounts receivable, accounts payable, payroll, and acquisition departments. It may involve a one-time or recurring transaction based on the buyer and seller's contractual arrangement. Business-to-business (B2B) payments are more complex than business-to-consumer (B2C) payments because B2B payment processing takes longer to approve and settle the transaction.
Asia-Pacific B2B payment market research includes China, India, Japan, South Korea, Australia, and the rest of Asia-Pacific. An increase in the payment volume between businesses, a rise in the adoption of digital payment systems by small and medium-sized enterprises, and the availability of many payment acceptance banks for merchants fuel the growth of the market in the Asia-Pacific region.
Several financial technology companies in China, Japan, and India have provided businesses with advanced payment technology. For example, in April 2020, Harbour and Hills, one of China's leading B2B cross-border payment providers, launched a B2B payments gateway that improves the business payment transaction process of corporate sectors, thereby driving market growth in this region. In addition, cheques, bank transfers, demand draughts, and third-party gateways are the most widely accepted traditional business payment methods throughout the Asia-Pacific. This is regarded as a significant factor driving market expansion in this region.
In the B2B payments space, security concerns such as data breaches and identity theft are significant constraints; similarly, lingering debt and payment delays can pose a risk and pressure business cash flow. Electronic invoicing (eInvoicing) and blockchain can mitigate these risks and concerns and facilitate B2B payment transitions that improve the customer experience.
The global B2B payment market in Asia-Pacific is highly fragmented due to many key developments, such as partnerships, acquisitions, and product development, occurring in this region. EnKash, one of India's leading B2B payment solution providers, announced a partnership with Mastercard beginning in December 2020. This partnership enabled EnKas to provide businesses with a B2B digital payment automation platform. In the coming years, an increase in the number of such strategic moves is anticipated to generate a tremendous growth opportunity for the market.
After the COVID-19 outbreak, company owners have expanded their adoption of digital payments, creating growth equivalent to 10 years in only four months. The tendency has extended throughout B2B payment environments. The digitalization of the B2B payment arena has made it easier for firms to conduct cross-border commercial transactions, resulting in a rise in international trade and promoting economic growth. This will also aid the business's survival throughout the pandemic.
