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.

Increased adoption of real-time payment technology by businesses to streamline the money-transaction process is viewed as a significant factor driving the growth of the market in MEA. Several industries, including healthcare, IT and telecom, and retail, have adopted the B2B payment system due to its numerous benefits, which include payment transaction speed, transparency, and security.

Market Dynamics

The Middle East and Africa B2B Payments Market Drivers:

Increased Adoption of Instant Fund Transfer Technologies

Commercial business owners' increased adoption of instant fund transfer technologies, such as mobile payment, drives the expansion of the Middle East and Africa (MEA) market. In addition, immediate fund transfers, instant confirmation of money transfers, and the encouragement of businesses to use digital payment services by prominent key players such as Mercado Pago, Samsung Pay, and Google Pay are significant factors driving the growth of the B2B market in this region.

The Middle East and Africa B2B Payments Market Restraint:

Impact of COVID Pandemic

As a result of the unprecedented COVID-19 epidemic, a lockdown was implemented in many sectors, and enterprises were forced to implement several operational modifications. Due to restrictions imposed by the government on the flow of goods, transportation, import and export bans, travel restrictions, event cancellations, and others, many businesses have suffered losses and interruptions.

In addition, due to these abnormalities in business operations, B2B payments have been harmed by low demand for goods and services, an erratic supply chain, and the liquidation of businesses. In addition, the number of business-to-business (B2B) transactions decreased due to government-imposed limitations, resulting in a reduction in B2B payments.

The Middle East and Africa B2B Payments Market Opportunities:

Adoption of Digital Payment Technologies

An increase in disposable income and the active participation of business owners in online social media contribute to expanding the B2B payments market in this region. Moreover, the growth of various innovative applications and the rise in small and medium-sized business owners' adoption of digital payment technology has increased the number of payment transactions, which drives the market's growth. 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.
