The global automotive finance market size was valued at USD 220.18 billion in 2019 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 6.7% from 2020 to 2026. The incorporation of attractive technology-specific features in the latest automotive parts and the use of good quality materials are leading to a surge in automotive sales, owing to the increasing customer base. The increasing investments in autonomous vehicles prompt financing from credit unions, dealers, and banks, which is expected to fuel the market growth.
The number of automotive finance customers is increasing owing to the emerging trend of digitalization, an increase in the use of online services, superior telematics, and advancements in blockchain technology. In order to obtain a quick and hassle-free financing for new or used vehicles, customers prefer finance providers who offer data-driven consulting services. These services help determine suitable vehicle as well as a financial scheme that best suit interests and requirements of the consumers.
 

There have been significant advancements in the automotive industry over the last decade due to the development of highly automated digital vehicles.

Furthermore, stringent regulations regarding credit provision are projected to hinder the market growth to a considerable extent. Nevertheless,automotive financiers are reframing their strategies for products and services and OEMs are modifying their operations for manufacturing eco-friendly vehicles.
