Digital Payment Market Dynamics

A digital payment is the transfer of value from one payment account to another using a digital device such as a mobile phone, POS (Point of Sales) or computer, a digital channel communication such as mobile wireless data or SWIFT. Digital payments do not involve cash or cheques. The evolution of the digital payments industry is closely linked to the creation and emergence of the internet. The digital payments industry was initially built to accommodate card payment transactions, but with the emergence of new technology, it is currently transforming. We have already seen a shift in the payment options available to consumers like online banking and digital wallets.

The market faces significant challenges from lack of infrastructure and security concerns which are expected to impact growth over the forecast period. Digital payments require a reliable and fast internet connection, which is often lacking in many parts of the world. This makes it difficult for people in rural or remote areas to access digital payment platforms. Digital payments are vulnerable to fraud, including identity theft, account takeover, and phishing attacks. Cybercriminals can steal user credentials, use malware to intercept transactions, or set up fake websites or apps to trick users into providing their personal and financial information.
