Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “Many private banks have greater incentives to incur the switching costs needed to pursue a new business in the SME market. Large private firms have been one of the key driving trends for innovation, which has increased the global growth for the MSME segment in emerging countries that are either unserved or underserved.”
According to the report, the proliferation of the private sector banking industry across emerging markets may emerge as a potential driver in the market. Private sector banks are equipped with better infrastructure and are driven by the profit motive to disburse loans, which give them a distinct advantage over public sector banks. MSMEs are offering their financial products more internationally, managing more sophisticated supply chains, and sales channels, thereby increasing the complexity of their value chains.
Further, the report states that MSMEs are unable to display good business practices stemming from knowledge constraints on marketing, pricing, distribution networks, and procurement. In addition, financial constraints and business illiteracy hampers the growth of the market.
