Global B2B Payment Trends (2018-2022) - Digital Transformation Drives the Growth of B2B Payments Worldwide -

October 30, 2018 GMT

DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Oct 30, 2018--The “Global B2B Payment Trends 2018” report has been added to’s offering.

B2B payment is the largest segment of the global payments market. Trillions of U.S. dollars are transacted between businesses annually, with robust growth expected for the next ten years.


Driven by the expansion of the technology-powered B2B payment offerings of the leading FinTech companies, card networks and software solution providers, and the adoption of E-Commerce by businesses, corporate payments are becoming increasingly digitalized. According to a 2018 survey cited in the report, one-half of global B2B payments are already made electronically with further shift towards digital transfers expected in the next two to five years.

New technologies such as big data analytics, artificial intelligence, machine learning, and instant payments are expected to help businesses reduce inefficiencies in the complex B2B payments processes and tackle the problem of payment delays. The share of past due B2B payments ranges by region from one-third to more than one-half of all B2B receivables, according to the latest data cited in the report. Furthermore, FinTech is disrupting the cross-border B2B payments space, with their share of transaction value projected to increase through 2022.

The growth of global B2B E-Commerce, projected to become more than double the size of the B2C online market over the next two years, is another disruptor of the B2B payments space. While traditional card payments lead the current B2B E-Commerce payment offerings, more businesses start to offer mobile payment options to their clients. Data from 2018 cited in the report indicates the growing comfort of treasurers in using mobile payment applications.
