India personal loan market is expected to grow at a formidable rate of around 10% during the forecast period. A personal loan is a loan that does not require collateral or security and is offered with minimal documentation. A personal loan is borrowed from a bank, credit union or online lender that you pay back in fixed monthly payments, or installments, typically over two to five years. There are two types of personal loans: secured and unsecured loans. A secured personal loan requires some type of collateral whereas the unsecured loans, do not require any collateral. Unsecured personal loans can be used for a wide range of application such as paying for a wedding, making home improvements, consolidating debt, paying medical bills, among others.

The increasing gap income and expenditure coupled with rising aspirations, especially among the young population are the key factors driving the India personal loan market. Additionally, the size of personal loans is much smaller and easy to access which is further propelling the market. Further, digitisation has resulted in lowering costs, which is anticipated to positively influence the market in the coming years.

India personal loan market is segmented based on source, tenure, purpose, interest rate, company and region. Based on source, the market can be bifurcated into bank and non-banking financial company (NBFC). Banks are expected to dominate the market during forecast period since the penetration of banks is far more than any other credit union in the country. Further, if an already existing bank customer applies for a personal loan in that bank, he/she gets some additional benefits and services. Based on purpose, the market can be fragmented into home improvement, wedding, travel and others. The wedding segment is expected to dominate the market since the Indian population is usually opting for personal loans when its either their own marriage or some close relative’s. 

The major players operating in India personal loan market are IDFC First Bank, HDFC Bank, ICICI Bank, TATA Capital, Kotak Mahindra Bank, IndusInd Bank, Fullerton India, Bajaj FinServ, SBI Bank and others.
