Alternative Payment Channels - New Market Research Report

New Financial Services research report from Timetric is now available from Fast Market Research


Boston, MA -- (SBWIRE) -- 06/16/2012 -- Payments are moving from cash based to cash-less transaction. The resilience of the electronic payments market is proved, with the number of transactions increasing from 17.9 billion in 2010 to 21.3 billion in 2011, registering growth of 19% y-o-y, despite economic volatility. Meanwhile the aggregate value of global e-payments is expected to reach approximately EUR1.4 trillion in 2013. While online payment services or e-commerce are more prominent in developed economies owing to the high penetration of the internet, mobile payments have considerable reach in emerging economies like India, China, Brazil and Kenya as there are more mobile phones than bank accounts in these countries. These changing trends are creating opportunities for established as well as start-up companies offering a plethora of alternative payment instruments. The online and mobile payment market is expected to undergo substantial growth with even some government institutions supporting the development of alternative payment channels across various sectors.
