SME Banking (Business Banking) - Ireland - November 2012
Small to medium sized enterprises (SMEs) continue to play a key role in the NI and RoI economies, with SMEs in NI accounting for almost 99.9% of all businesses, while in RoI some 99.7% of businesses.
In 2012 and moving forward, one of the key concerns facing Irish SMEs is access to credit, with the economic downturn resulting in many financial institutions being reluctant to grant credit to SMEs. This has taken its toll on the SME banking market with the value of credit products dropping between 2007 and 2012, while the value of deposit banking also declined.
Moving forward into 2013, access to credit for SMEs will continue to be necessary. With economic recovery predicted for 2013 and 14, this may see lending criteria relaxed, and thus growth of the SME banking market.
Some questions answered in this report include:
- How have levels of access to credit changed for Irish SMEs?
- What initiatives are being used to aid SMEs?
- How will economic growth impact on SME banking demands?
- Who are the key players in the SME banking market?
- What are the key concerns of SMEs in Ireland?
