Banks Expect Trade Finance Revenue Growth In 2021

According to the recent forecast report made by the Coalition, the trade finance industry is expected to regain its stability in 2021 after experiencing almost a decade of diminished or constant revenues.

Coalition is an S&P Global-owned research company according to which the revenues have a scope of rising beyond the pre-pandemic levels as soon as in the coming year of 2022.

When it comes to the financial instruments of Trade Finance boosting companies’ imports and exports, the influencing providers across the world include HSBC Holdings PLC, Citigroup Inc., BNP Paribas SA, Standard Chartered PLC, and Deutsche Bank AG.

These positive revenue forecasts have come into the scene after an unstable year faced by global trade along with intermediaries who provided funds to it. Due to the lockdowns and travel limitations which were the resultants of a global pandemic, world merchandise trade is expected to decrease by 9.2% in 2020 as per the World Trade Organization prediction made in October.

These worldwide obstructions have affected traditional trade finance activities on a huge level, a report shown by Coalition and Greenwich Associates in September. The traditional trade finance instruments include letters of credit and guarantees.

Still, a part of overall trade finance decreased revenue was equalized by the boost of supply chain finance which shows a 4% increment over the year in the first half of 2020, as per the Coalition. Usually, a complete program of supply chain finance is established by the corporate purchaser with a bank or alternative supplier to make suppliers capable of getting early payment for their invoices.

A decrease of up to $49 billion in the total trade finance revenue collection for worldwide banks is expected in 2020 by the Coalition, from $53 billion in 2019. But in 2021, this is set to restructure to $52 billion according to the forecast. It means that it will touch $54 billion by 2022, above the pre-COVID pandemic level.

The foundation of the whole data is based on the assumption that the vaccine will be available in the market in the initial three months of 2021 to make the life return back to its normal routine throughout the year. As per Eric Li, research director at Coalition, in an interview.
