Report Overview

The global refinancing market size was valued at USD 18.09 billion in 2021 and is expected to expand at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 7.5% from 2022 to 2030. The growth can be attributed to the rising investments made by banks and other financial institutions to enhance their technology and provide improved refinancing offerings to their customers aimed at boosting their experience.

The aforementioned factors are expected to act as growth impellers for the industry.

 U.S. refinancing market size, by type, 2020 - 2030 (USD Billion)

Numerous players are focusing on developing and launching home financing solutions to help customers qualify for refinancing options. Such product launches are aimed at providing a better customer experience to the customers. For instance, in July 2021, Ally Home, the lending arm of Ally Bank that caters to residential mortgages, launched RefiNow, a home financing option. RefiNow caters to the needs of customers facing difficulties in qualifying or ending up with slower refinancing due to barriers such as lower income levels.

Borrowers refinance their existing loans to benefit from reduced monthly payments so that borrowers can pay faster, modify their loan terms, and cash out the home equity value are also major factors contributing to the industry’s growth. Cash-out refinance is a mortgage refinance that enables borrowers to liquidate home equity built up over the years by paying the original mortgage.

In a cash-out refinance, a new mortgage is obtained, which is higher than the original mortgage, by leveraging the home as collateral. The difference is paid out to the borrower in cash, which acts as a significant factor contributing to the market growth. The obtained cash can then be used to pay off the debt, eliminate the high-interest rates on credit cards, make home improvements, and invest in savings.

Numerous mortgage lenders and banks worldwide, including JPMorgan Chase & Co, ALLY FINANCIAL INC., Rocket Companies, Inc.; Bank of America; and RefiJet, offer diverse mortgage refinancing solutions. These refinancing solutions include vehicle loans, fixed-rate mortgages, adjustable-rate mortgages, jumbo loans, and government loan solutions.

Various providers are also focusing on leveraging technologies such as artificial intelligence and machine learning to automate mortgage processing, thus supporting industry growth. Furthermore, mortgage lenders and refinancers assist buyers with digital tools, such as mortgage calculators, providing an overview of the ongoing interest rates, loan tenure, and discount points as per the refinancing, which in turn, helps buyers choose the refinancing loan wisely.

Rising government initiatives and programs to assist low-income people in obtaining the benefits of lower interest rates in mortgages are also significant factors driving the market growth. Moreover, the government has introduced refinancing instruments to assist people in obtaining the benefits of refinancing loans, which is anticipated to aid market growth.

For instance, some of the government initiatives in the U.S. include Federal Housing Administration (FHA) refinance loans, U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) refinance loans, and U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) refinance loans. However, the high costs associated with mortgage refinancing are expected to hinder the market growth during the forecast period.

COVID-19 Impact Analysis

The COVID-19 outbreak is anticipated to have a positive impact on the refinancing market. As the crisis limited household incomes worldwide, borrowers started opting for financial services with lower interest rates to save money on the high-interest rates. Due to lagging economic activity, refinancing at a lower interest rate enabled the borrowers to reduce mortgage costs. The refinancing activity among high-income borrowers increased significantly compared to low-income homeowners. As a result, refinancing has risen significantly during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Type Insights

The fixed-rate mortgage refinancing segment held the largest revenue share of over 40.0% in 2021. The ability of the fixed-rate mortgage refinance to offer consistent interest rates throughout the entire term of the loan is a major factor driving the segment growth. Borrowers who think interest rates could increase in the coming years opt for fixed-rate mortgage refinancing to keep the current interest rates. Borrowers can refinance from one fixed-rate mortgage to another.

The adjustable-rate mortgage refinancing segment is anticipated to witness significant growth over the forecast period. Adjustable-rate mortgage refinancing offers better benefits to short-term borrowers that are residing in a particular property for a short tenure (ranging from five to seven years). Adjustable-rate mortgage refinancing offers interest rates generally lower than a fixed-rate mortgage, which is a major factor driving growth. Adjustable-rate mortgage refinancing provides lower interest rates for the initial payment period, and the interest rate may change periodically based on the corresponding financial index.

Deployment Insights

The on-premises segment dominated with the largest revenue share of over 68.0% in 2021. The rising number of on-premise loan origination solutions, including refinancing, is a significant factor driving the segment's growth. Prominent on-premise loan and mortgage software have been integrated on-premise to make the loan origination process smoothers. For instance, mortgage software, such as BankPoint, BeSmartee, and The Mortgage Office, have been integrated into the existing on-premise infrastructure, such as data centers for efficient loan pipeline management, loan review, document management, and loan portfolio management.

The cloud segment is anticipated to witness significant growth over the forecast period. The ability of cloud-based refinancing solutions to drive scalability and efficiency in mortgage operations is a major factor driving growth. At the same time, the integration of machine learning and artificial intelligence technologies also acts as a growth driver. Cloud deployment offers benefits such as lower expenditure on loan management systems and automated onboarding and loan operations.

End-use Insights

The personal segment dominated the market in 2021 and accounted for over 72.0% of the global revenue. The rising popularity of the lower interest rates in student loans offered by the refinancing solution providers is a major factor driving the growth. Additionally, borrowers use refinancing loans with a fixed-rate plan which is more accessible than managing several other credit cards with different interest rates. Borrowers may also use refinancing options for medical fees or sponsoring a vacation. Such factors bode well for the growth of the segment over the forecast period.

Global refinancing market share, by end-use, 2021 (%)

The commercial segment is anticipated to register a promising CAGR over the forecast period. Refinancing offers numerous benefits in commercial end-uses for real estate business, such as improvement of financials, including return on investment, and Net Operating Income (NOI), which are the major factors propelling the growth. Commercial refinancing also enables funding the property upgrades through cash-outs, which are then used for home building and tax-free improvements. Moreover, commercial companies are also opting for refinancing to expand their business operations across the globe, thereby contributing to the growth.

Regional Insights

North America accounted for the largest revenue share of over 30.0% in 2021. The growth can be attributed to the presence of a large number of prominent players in the region, such as WELLS FARGO & COMPANY, Bank of America, and ALLY FINANCIAL INC, among others. Moreover, this region also includes numerous mortgage investors such as Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, and Ginnie Mae, which are government-sponsored enterprises that offer better refinancing options. Such presence of mortgage investors in this region offers lucrative growth opportunities for the regional market over the coming years.

Refinancing Market Trends by Region

Asia Pacific is anticipated to record the highest CAGR over the forecast period. The growing urban population adopting home loans and the rising mortgage loan offerings, including refinancing across the region, are significant factors driving regional growth. Refinancing enables customers to switch to lower interest rates loans which helps them save the extra money that was going to be spent on higher interest rates. Moreover, the increase in the uptake of refinancing solutions across the region has been fueled by students opting for student loans for their higher education. Such factors are expected to create more growth opportunities for the regional market.
