the consumer credit market

Update 08/11/2019



The consumer credit refers to the category of credit provided to individuals by banks and other financial companies to finance the purchase of goods and services such as automobiles and home equipment. This category of credit is in contrast to that of real estate credit, which is only used for the acquisition of real estate. The amounts granted for consumer loans are generally lower and spread over much shorter periods. The sale and the market are supervised by regulatory mechanisms to prevent situations of over-indebtedness.

Consumer credit is therefore a bank loan used to finance the purchase of consumer goods: cars, construction, television, etc. The consumer credit market in France covers outstanding consumer credit for individuals of more than 150 billion euros and is constantly growing. Also, half of French households now hold consumer credit.

The consumer credit market is limited by regulation to organisations with a banking licence, which restricts competition from new entrants. The players in the consumer credit market are committed to a strategy to accelerate their digital transition in order to make the most of their customer data: improved offers, loyalty programs, customer targeting, etc.

The consumer credit market, which has been dominated by banks until now, must cope with the rise of crowdfunding platforms and speed loans from major retailers (Casino - Lydia partnership, for example).
