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.

        expedited application and approval process compared to secured loans.
        The loan amount is disbursed within a few days, making them attractive
        to borrowers.

        require collateral. This accessibility makes them suitable for startups
        and asset-limited businesses.

        cards, fixed-term savings accounts, and access to loans from various
        lenders or investors.

        offering unsecured loans to deliver personalized and user-friendly
