Digital Retail Lending
India has a smaller credit penetration compared to USA and China and its retail lending AUM stands at approximately US$ 608 billion with less than 10% of the retail loans being disbursed digitally. According to RedSeer, the financial services space in India is highly underpenetrated (across segments including lending) which presents a big opportunity for a technology-first company to capture a large market share.
India’s bank retail lending AUM has grown at a CAGR of 16% between financial years 2016 and 2022 with housing loans being the largest, and personal loans and credit cards growing the fastest. Personal loans and home loans have shown a CAGR of 15% and 12%, respectively in the last five years.
The NBFC retail lending AUM in India has grown at a CAGR of 27% during financial years 2016 to 2022 to reach approximately US$ 125 Billion. The major contributors to this growth were personal loans and home loans growing at a CAGR of 32% and 23% respectively. Despite posting strong growth, India’s Formal Retail Credit Penetration remains significantly lower than global peers indicating a large headroom and potential for growth.
Among the retail lending categories, personal loan has grown the fastest and is estimated to grow at a CAGR of 27% over the next five years. The new loan disbursals for the personal loan category are estimated to increase at CAGR of 27% from US$ 50 billion in the financial year 2021 to US$ 164 billion in the financial year 2026. In the same period, overall digital lending is estimated to increase from 19% to 41% of the total personal loan disbursals.
RedSeer estimates that the digital lending market in the personal loan, home loan and loan against property (LAP) categories will grow at a CAGR of 48% to become a market of US$ 107 billion in the financial year 2026 with personal loans carrying the highest share of 63% in the digital lending market followed by a 31% digital disbursal share of home loans and 6% for LAP.
