August 17, 2021


SAINT PETERSBURG, Fla. (August 17, 2021) – Newly published data confirms that the United States’ total factoring volume dropped significantly in 2020 according to data in BCR’s World Factoring Yearbook, authored by National Sales Manager Mark Mandula and Communications Specialist Alina Hall of United Capital Funding, a commercial finance firm headquartered in St. Petersburg, Florida.

This is the 25th edition of the World Factoring Yearbook, which continues to be regarded as the authoritative source for factoring data and trend analysis globally. The publication highlights developments in the factoring industry including growth trends across Europe, Asia, North and South America, and Africa. The Yearbook also includes a comprehensive overview of the performance and trends seen in the American factoring industry. The decline of factoring in 2020 continues the downward trend of the invoice financing service.

“Many factoring firms are looking towards 2021 as a year of recovery,” said Mandula. “Several key indicators have come forward to show a positive trend for this industry.”

According to the Yearbook data, the most common industries that utilize factoring include trucking/transportation, temporary staffing, service, construction and manufacturing.
