The BNPL gross merchandise value in the region will increase from US$190.2 billion in 2023 to reach US$354.3 billion by 2029.

The buy now pay later sector is poised for accelerated growth in the European market over the medium term. The rising adoption among consumers, across age groups, will drive the growth of the industry in Europe. Not just young generation shoppers, but even older cohort is turning to the payment solution to fund their everyday purchases, as inflation continues to bite their household income.

However, this resulted in growth opportunities for other firms, who are expected to expand aggressively across the European market, to accelerate growth rate. Overall, a positive growth outlook remains for the BNPL industry in Europe over the next three to four years.

Firms are expanding in the European market to boost usage and drive growth in the region

With the market projected to grow over the next three to four years in Europe, businesses are expanding in the region to tap into untapped markets. The expansion strategy is also driving the trend of strategic collaborations in the sector.

- A message from our partner -

Marqeta, in October 2023, entered into a strategic partnership with Scalapay to drive the buy now pay later usage in Europe. As part of the collaboration, the two firms will issue virtual cards for online and in-store transactions to Scalapay’s BNPL users. The scalable platform offered by Marqeta will support Scalapay to drive better shopping experiences for its users.

Klarna, on the other hand, is also planning to expand its presence across the European region. The firm is seeking in-store partnerships to benefit from the growing usage of BNPL products among consumers across age groups. The move to expand aggressively in the European region comes at a time when a few firms have taken measures to cut down costs.

Zip, for instance, abandoned 10 of the 14 markets it operated in, including the United Kingdom in 2023. Clearpay, in 2023, also ceased operations in many European nations, including Italy, France, and Spain. This is offering growth opportunities for firms like Klarna, who are well-positioned to accelerate growth rate in Europe on the back of rising demand.
