In the fintech sector, the use of application programming interfaces (APIs) is also increasing, enabling improved service offerings and easier access to financial data. Business Warrior expects the implementation of data analytics and artificial intelligence to further accelerate in the coming years, driving the growth of the fintech market.


Conversely, there are some disadvantages:

  • Digital platforms sometimes have higher interest rates than traditional banks, especially for borrowers with weak credit histories.
  • In some cases, digital lending platforms may operate in a less regulated environment than traditional banks. 
  • Some digital platforms may lack robust customer support.
  • There is cybersecurity and data protection risk in digital platforms.


The growth of the digital lending market is further driven by the adoption of cloud-based platforms, which offer a cost-effective and efficient alternative to traditional on-premise solutions. Business Warrior expects cloud implementation to attract a larger market size due to its cost-effective nature and the way it streamlines lending processes.The market is moderately fragmented and key players are pursuing strategies such as new product launches, partnerships and product upgrades to maintain and strengthen their market positions. These strategies are complemented by investments in research and development activities aimed at integrating advanced technologies such as machine learning and blockchain into digital lending platforms.
