The global market for payment processing is massive, with US$1.6 trillion in total addressable market revenues. Payment revenue is expected to grow at a CAGR of 7% through to 2021. Adyen has plenty of room to grow, as growth of 1% in Adyen’s market share will lead to an additional US$1.6 billion dollars of revenue. These massive payments industry has traditionally supported many intermediaries, which Adyen has disrupted.
Adyen’s primary competitors include the likes of PayPal, Worldpay, and Stripe. Adyen caters to big, international operations while Stripe targets the startup app developer community, making up for lower volume by charging a slightly higher margin. Adyen’s transaction volume last year in 2021 was $516 billion, while net revenue grew to $469 million. The company grosses less than 1% of every dollar processed, far below the 2% to 3% that Worldpay, PayPal and Stripe make.
Adyen is a multi-sided platform that exclusively charges merchants. The value to merchants is derived from the partnerships they have formed with card schemes, as well as the technology platforms. Adyen has partnered with popular Ecommerce, Billing, and POS platforms to ensure their ‘plug-and-play’ solution will integrate seamlessly into the technology stack of their merchant customers.
How Will Adyen Continue to be Successful?
Adyen is focused on providing their merchants with the best payment experience by constantly innovating. Adyen continuously improves its products with regular software updates every four weeks to ensure that they stay competitive with the competition and extend their product offering. With their existing scalable business model, Adyen should focus on developing partnerships with merchants in countries like China and India where the growth of E-commerce is highest. While the outlook within the B2C payments space is positive, Adyen should consider adjacent industries moving forward. A key differentiator in the market is their relationships with card schemes around the world.
