Global Mobile Payment Market to Grow at 17.1% During 2024-2032, Catalyzed by Increasing Penetration of Smartphones

October 28, 2021 | Technology & Media

According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled “Mobile Payment Market Report by Mode of Transaction (WAP (Wireless Application Protocol), NFC (Near field communications), SMS (Short Message Service), USSD (Unstructured Supplementary Service Data), and Others), Application (Entertainment, Energy and Utilities, Healthcare, Retail, Hospitality and Transportation, and Others), and Region 2024-2032,” the global mobile payment market size reached US$ 2,276.0 Billion in 2023. Mobile payment, also called m-payment, refers to an automated e-payment method that uses mobile devices to initiate, authorize and process monetary transactions. These payments are performed under the financial supervision of regulatory bodies and facilitated by the availability of point-of-sale (POS) terminals and nearfield communications. Nowadays, various banks and companies offer mobile payment options within their applications to facilitate instant transactions directly from users’ bank accounts. In recent years, mobile payments have gained traction as they offer improved security and convenience to the users than traditional payment methods like cheques and cash.

Global Mobile Payment Market Trends:

The increasing penetration of smartphones and high-speed internet, coupled with the improving network infrastructure across the globe, represent the primary factors driving the market. Additionally, the integration of biometric authentication methods with mobile payment applications to minimize the chances of security thefts or frauds by securing the payment gateway is accelerating the demand for mobile payment systems. Besides this, the shifting consumer preferences toward contactless payments to maintain social distancing amid the recent coronavirus disease (COVID-19) outbreak has augmented the product demand. Furthermore, the introduction of pre-payment instruments (PPIs) by non-bank entities to enable interpersonal transactions and the launch of numerous incentive programs, discount coupons, and cashback offers by key players are other major growth-inducing factors. Moreover, the implementation of several favorable government initiatives promoting the usage of digital payments and the development of easy payment options using QR codes and scans are creating a favorable market outlook. Besides this, the changing purchasing patterns of consumers and utilization of e-payments due to the rapid expansion of e-commerce platforms have bolstered the market growth. Looking forward, the market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 17.1% during 2024-2032.
