The global transaction value of the B2B payments market will exceed $111 trillion in 2027, from just over $88 trillion in 2022, according to Juniper Research. The study predicts this growth of 26% will be driven by rising prices caused by rampant inflation, as well as by strong economic growth in developing markets.

The report identified the increased automation of accounts payable and receivable as being critical to the growing efficiency of payments processing; creating a significant opportunity for B2B payment vendors. The research predicts that with the average business making over 1,400 domestic payments per year globally in 2027, improving efficiency in payment processes will be critical.

It found that instant payments, and the additional remittance data that the ISO 20022 standard provides, will unlock greater opportunities to seamlessly organize and reconcile payments, by enabling automated reconciliation. “By leveraging new technologies within the accounts payable and receivable processes, businesses can unlock significant cost savings, which is critical during a time of economic uncertainty,” explained research co-author Nick Maynard.

Additionally, the research found that new payment methods, such as CBDCs (Central Bank Digital Currencies), hold significant promise in solving challenges within the B2B payments sector. By being purely digital, CBDC payments will be able to be fully automated, being easily traced wherever the payment is. However, CBDCs must be designed with B2B payment use cases in mind, given that B2B payments are generally more complex than consumer payment processes. As such, the report recommends that B2B payment vendors participate in trials and pilots to ensure these difficult use cases are considered from day one.
