Market Overview

The Germany B2B Payments Market size was valued at USD 78 billion in 2021. It is projected to reach USD 157 billion by 2030, growing at a CAGR of 8.3% 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.

Increasing digitalization and automation in the B2B payment system have increased its demand among business owners for networking and connecting with various suppliers, distributors, and retailers worldwide. In addition, the expansion of global trade and the increase in cross-border transactions involving many suppliers, wholesalers, retailers, and businesses are the primary forces propelling the global market. However, a rise in commercial payment fraud and the closure of some companies due to the COVID-19 epidemic is expected to hinder market growth. On the contrary, developments in transparency across B2B payments and a rise in partnerships between B2B payment operators and FinTech titans are projected to offer attractive growth prospects for the market.
