Mobile wallet adoption is gradually displacing traditional payments such as cash and cards in India
According to GlobalData, mobile wallet transactions across India are expected to reach $1.40 trillion in 2024 compared to $5.4 billion in 2016.
In terms of transaction volume, an estimated 23.5 billion mobile wallet transactions will be carried out in 2020, which is expected to more than double to 54.7 billion in 2024.
The acceleration of e-payments has been one of the key objectives of the government’s ‘Digital India’ campaign. The government has been investing substantially in building long-term infrastructure for cashless payments.
