Supply chain finance is an important way to solve the financing difficulties of enterprises under the background of deleveraging, which is of great theoretical and practical significance to the overall performance of the enterprise supply chain. This paper introduces the history and current situation of inventory pledge financing in supply chain, analyzes the main modes of inventory financing in supply chain, and introduces the influence of periodic factors on inventory financing. The index system of influencing factors of inventory financing in supply chain is constructed, and the weight of each index is reasonably determined based on the practice of each participant in supply chain finance by using the analytic hierarchy process (AHP). Finally, the fuzzy comprehensive evaluation is applied to analyze the influencing factors. In this paper, AHP and fuzzy comprehensive evaluation are combined to provide a scientific and feasible method for the study of the factors affecting inventory pledge in the supply chain financial environment, and it has important guiding significance for the practice of enterprises.
