North America region currently dominates the buy now pay later market due to the extensive presence of major market players and developed digital economy with high-speed internet connectivity.

Newark, June 28, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- As per the report published by The Brainy Insights, the global buy now pay later market is expected to grow from USD 5.94 billion in 2021 to USD 39.99 billion by 2030, at a CAGR of 23.6% during the forecast period 2022-2030.

The demand for buy now pay later has grown fast in recent years, and it is expected to grow much more throughout the forecast period. This expansion can be attributed to the rising demand for no EMI-based instalment payments and retailers' increasing adoption of BPNL to improve the customer base. Buy now pay later is a mechanism that allows an individual to purchase without paying the total amount; instead, the amount is paid in paid small instalments over a period of time. These repayments do not carry any interest charges barring some situations, allowing consumers to purchase high-end and luxury items without burning a hole in their pocket. However, the need for specialized tools for the integration of BPNL with the local checkout process of the retailer or merchant is an expensive endeavor, which could hamper the growth of the market as most retailers and merchants operate on a small scale. Furthermore, the growing young population ineligible for credit cards given their zero credit score history will drive this market, as BPNL allows them to purchase items over their budget without any extra burden. BPNL is a convenient and secure way of transacting, making it an ideal option for deferred payments and the ideal substitute for credit cards, which is expected to boost market growth throughout the forecast period considerably.
