Tuesday, October 3, 2023
DUBLIN, Sept. 25, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- The "Unsecured Loan Market - Global Industry Size, Share, Trends, Opportunity, and Forecast, 2018-2028F" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.
The global unsecured loan market is poised for substantial growth in the forecast period due to several key factors. Unsecured loans, also known as signature loans, are financial instruments that do not require collateral. They have gained popularity due to their simplified application process, absence of collateral requirements, and quick disbursement of funds.
Loan Repayment: Borrowers are required to repay the borrowed amount along with a predetermined interest rate on a monthly basis, typically in the form of Equated Monthly Installments (EMI).
Popular Loan Purposes: A significant majority of borrowers (57.6%) utilize personal loans to refinance credit card debt or consolidate existing debts. Home renovations (5.8%) rank second in terms of loan purpose.
Credit Score Influence: The terms and conditions of unsecured loans, including approval, sanction, and distribution, are frequently influenced by the borrower's credit score. Some unsecured loan products necessitate a high credit score for approval, while others may require a cosigner to assume responsibility for debt repayment in the event of borrower default.
US Personal Loan Debt: In 2022, the United States is witnessing unprecedented levels of personal loan debt. The average balance per loan of unsecured personal loans held by Americans is USD 9,896, with a total balance amounting to USD 177.9 billion.
Advantages of Unsecured Loans:
Unsecured loans offer several advantages that contribute to their popularity:
-- Tailored Loan Amount: Borrowers can efficiently settle debts and
allocate funds from alternate sources to cover the loan repayment due to
the reduced loan amount and shorter term.
-- Simple Application Process: Unsecured loans have a streamlined and
expedited application and approval process compared to secured loans.
The loan amount is disbursed within a few days, making them attractive
-- No Collateral Requirement: Unlike secured loans, unsecured loans do not
require collateral. This accessibility makes them suitable for startups
and asset-limited businesses.

-- Digitalization: Platforms like Zopa, Prosper, and Lending Club
facilitate person-to-person lending for personal loans, offering credit
cards, fixed-term savings accounts, and access to loans from various

-- Chatbots: Chatbot software programs are increasingly used by businesses
offering unsecured loans to deliver personalized and user-friendly
experiences for clients.

innovative unsecured loan schemes, providing profitable opportunities
for market expansion.
