The global peer-to-peer lending market size is expected to reach USD 21.42 billion by 2030, growing at a CAGR of 20.2% from 2023 to 2030, according to a new report by Grand View Research, Inc. Changing consumer preferences and attitudes toward borrowing and investing have propelled the growth of the peer-to-peer (P2P) lending market. Many individuals prefer borrowing directly from peers or investing in loans that align with their goals. P2P lending allows borrowers and lenders to connect on a more personal level, fostering a sense of community and trust that may be lacking in traditional lending channels.

In June 2023, PeerBerry, a European peer-to-peer lending platform, achieved a significant milestone by surpassing 70,000 investors. The platform experienced substantial growth in May, generating increased interest from investors. In addition to its core platform, PeerBerry has also been promoting its sister platform, Crowdpear, which has the same shareholders. Crowdpear has attracted approximately 2,500 international investors, further expanding the reach of the PeerBerry brand and its investment opportunities.

P2P lending platforms leverage digital technologies to create a transparent and efficient lending ecosystem. Through online platforms, borrowers can easily access information about loan terms, interest rates, and fees, enabling them to make informed decisions. Similarly, investors can access detailed borrower profiles and loan information, empowering them to evaluate and select investment opportunities that align with their risk appetite. This transparency fosters trust between borrowers and investors and contributes to the overall growth and credibility of the P2P lending market.

The COVID-19 pandemic has catalyzed the rapid growth and acceptance of the P2P lending market. As physical branches and in-person interactions became limited, borrowers and investors increasingly embraced P2P lending as a convenient and efficient alternative. The digital nature of P2P lending platforms provided a seamless experience, allowing borrowers to access funds, and investors to diversify their portfolios, without needing a physical presence.
