In 2022, BNPL schemes became a household name amid the growing adoption, which has grown significantly in H2 2022 due to the surging cost of living and rising inflation. While Klarna has seen its valuation drop significantly, it has continued to maintain a strong foothold in the European BNPL industry.

As central bank accounts hike interest rates, access to capital through traditional is expected to become costlier for small and medium-sized businesses. This will keep driving SMEs toward B2B BNPL providers, thereby supporting the growth of the industry from the short to medium-term perspective in Europe.
