Syndicated Loans Market Research, 2031

The global syndicated loans market was valued at $1018.7 billion in 2021, and is projected to reach $3798.4 billion by 2031, growing at a CAGR of 14.2% from 2022 to 2031.

A syndicated loan is a financing offered by a group of lenders referred to as a syndicate who work together to provide funds for a single borrower. The borrower can be a corporation, a large project, or a sovereign government. The loan can involve a fixed amount of funds, a credit line, or a combination of the two. In addition, syndicated loans arise when a project requires too large loan for a single lender or when a project needs a specialized lender with expertise in a specific asset class. Syndicating the loan allows lenders to spread risk and take part in financial opportunities that may be too large for their individual capital base.

Syndicated Loans Market Insights

The demand for syndicate loans is experiencing growth due to requirement of huge amount of funds by the borrowers. It is generally difficult for a single lender to give loan for such big amount and therefore syndicate loan demand is growing among both the borrowers and lenders. In addition, syndicate loan helps to equally distribute the risk sharing among all the lenders which reduces the burden of the lender, in case the borrower is unable to repay back the loan amount. These are some of the factors propelling the growth of syndicated loans market. However, there are high chances of a syndicate personal loan becoming a bed debt, as such huge amount is difficult to be repaid by the buyer and if the project fails for which the loan was taken, then the lenders have to face the loss.

Therefore, lenders hesitate to lend money for syndicate loans. Thus, this is a major limiting factor for the syndicated loans market.  On the contrary, there are a large number of megaprojects being developed, such as construction of dams, road infrastructures, buildings and others for which a large sum of money is required. Syndicate leveraged finance are very useful in these cases as they finance such projects easily. Therefore, the large-scale development of megaprojects is expected to provide lucrative opportunities for the syndicated loans market growth in the coming years.

COVID-19 Impact Analysis

The COVID-19 had a negative impact on the syndicated loans market outlook attributing to the fact that no big projects such as development of infrastructures, corporate deals, or government projects were undertaken during the lockdown period, as there was shortage of man force to work on these projects, as well as the lenders were already facing huge losses, as market was down due to COVID-19. Moreover, lenders were not ready to invest in any big ticket projects as the chances of losses were higher. Thus, the syndicated loans industry was negatively impacted due to COVID-19 pandemic.

Top Impacting Factors

Surge in Demand for Large Loans

Loan syndication allows borrowers to borrow large amounts to finance capital-intensive projects. A large corporation or government can borrow a huge loan to finance large equipment leasing, mergers, and financing transactions in telecommunications, petrochemical, mining, energy, transportation, and others. In addition, a single lender would be unable to raise funds to finance such projects, and therefore, bringing several lenders to provide the financing makes it easy to carry out such projects. Moreover, as there are development projects being undertaken by private players as well as by the government, the demand for syndicated loans is rapidly growing. This is a major propelling factor for the growth of the syndicated loans market.  

Risk is Shared Equally Among Lenders

In case of a syndicate loan, there is a group of lenders that finance a borrower and therefore, the risk sharing ratio is equally distributed among the lenders according to the percentage of finance they lend. Thus, lenders do not have to fear about incurring huge losses in case the loan turns into bad debt. Furthermore, since a syndicate online loan is contributed to by multiple lenders, the loan can be structured in different types of loans and securities. The varying loan types offer different types of interest, such as fixed or floating interest rates, which makes it more flexible for the borrower. Also, borrowing in different currencies protects the borrower from currency risks resulting from external factors such as inflation and government laws and policies. This is a major growth factor for the syndicated loans market.

Risk of Bad Debts

As syndicated loans tend to be much larger than standard bank loans, the risk of even one borrower defaulting could affect each lender participating in the loan. Furthermore, as these loans are mostly used for undertaking big projects, there are chances that the project is put on hold for some emergencies such as legal dues, public outrage, government orders and others. If these situation arises, the lenders have to face heavy losses as their money is stuck with the borrower for a long period of time which may eventually turn as bad debt. Therefore, lenders mostly hesitate to finance in a syndicated loan which hampers the growth of the market.

Development of Megaprojects

As countries are rapidly growing, there is a significant growth in the infrastructure development of the countries. Infrastructural growth such as development of highways, flyovers, dams, and others play a major role in the growth of a country’s GDP. Besides this, corporate deals, government megaprojects, and private constructions require huge financing which can be availed by taking a syndicated loan, as these megaprojects are worth billions, a single lender cannot afford to pay such huge financing. Therefore, as a country undertakes the development of a megaproject in any sector, they will require syndicate loans for financing the project. Hence, this factor is expected to provide major lucrative opportunities for the growth of the syndicated loans market size in the upcoming years.

Analyst Review

A syndicated loan is a substantial loan provided to a large borrower by several lenders together. Each lender in the lending group (syndicate) provides part of the total amount and shares part of the lending risk. Usually, one lender acts as agent, lending more of the overall amount than the other participants and administering the loan on behalf of the syndicate. A syndicated loan may combine multiple loan types such as fixed-rate, floating-rate, operating, demand, with different repayment terms. The full amount could also be offered in several pieces known as tranches. Loan syndication is often used in corporate financing, as firms seek corporate loans for a variety of reasons, including funding for mergers, acquisitions, buyouts, and other capital expenditure projects. These capital projects often require large amounts of capital that typically exceed a single lender's resource or underwriting capacity.

Furthermore, market players are adopting various strategies for enhancing their services in the market and improving customer satisfaction. For instance, on June 2022, Citi and Bank of America, joined by Credit Suisse, Goldman Sachs, JP Morgan, Morgan Stanley, Wells Fargo, and Moody’s Analytics, launched Octaura Holdings (Octaura), an independent company whose goal is to create the first open market electronic trading platform for syndicated loans and collateralized loan obligations (CLOs). Built in collaboration with Genesis Global, the low-code software development platform for financial markets, Octaura aims to provide comprehensive trading solutions with natively integrated data and analytics. The company then plans to expand to other products in the credit market. These strategies are projected to provide major lucrative opportunities for the growth of the syndicated loans market.
