Summary

Table of Contents

Home credit remains a major industry providing finance to large numbers of people throughout the country. It has continued to grow despite increasing competition from other forms of credit such as payday loans. The industry is frequently in the news but is not always well understood. Lenders are often criticised for charging high rates of interest which exploit low-income consumers. They are also frequently praised for offering credit to those who cannot obtain it from mainstream sources and giving them an alternative to illegal loan sharks. This report aims to probe beneath these two statements, explore the factors which have driven the high rates of growth and provide a view on how likely it is to continue in the future.

In this report we review the UK home credit, or doorstep lending industry. We quantify the market size, historical growth rates, segmentation patterns and levels of industry profitability while reviewing key factors behind these figures.

We also carry out an in-depth analysis of the relevant drivers of industry growth – in particular the macroeconomic environment and supplier trends – setting out historical trends and available forecasts. Our forecast for industry growth is based on this analysis of historical trends and growth drivers.

We believe that, in order for those involved in the market to make the best decisions in this complex and changing environment, they need to have access to the best information. The aim of this report is to provide this.

It is intended for:
- Operators of home credit businesses themselves
- Investors in these businesses
