Posted by

According to the report by TechSci Research, the Trade Finance Market exhibited a value of USD 45.22 billion in 2022 and is poised to grow at a CAGR of 4.78% during the forecast period of 2024-2028. This financial infrastructure plays a crucial role in supporting international trade by offering funding, risk mitigation, and payment solutions for businesses involved in cross-border transactions. The market involves various instruments like letters of credit, trade credit insurance, and supply chain financing.

Global trade finance addresses challenges and uncertainties related to international business, including currency exchange risks, payment delays, credit risks, and political instability. Fundamental tools such as letters of credit (LC) act as financial guarantees provided by banks to ensure payment upon the fulfillment of specified conditions. Another critical component is trade credit insurance, which protects businesses from non-payment risks due to financial insolvency, political events, or natural disasters.
