B2B Payment Market is Forecasted to See a Modest CAGR Between 2020 to 2030

The B2B payment market continues to grow, with traditional payment methods still leading

In light of the increasing use of digital channels, accelerated by the pandemic, B2B payments revenue is forecasted to witness a single-digit CAGR between 2020 and 2030, as stated in the report.

Moreover, payment systems are expected to be one of the top B2B E-Commerce technology investment areas in the year 2022. In terms of the most demanded payment options, most of the B2B buyers globally were in favor of credit cards, followed by checks, and purchase orders. Although there has been a growing interest towards more digitalized and innovative B2B payment methods, for more than one-third businesses checks remained a popular B2B payment method in countries such as the U.S, as spelled out in the report.
