Indian mobile wallet market has witnessed several entries since 2015. The entry of banks into the mobile wallet business is giving a tough competition to the existing wallet providers. The wallet providers have widened their services and started capturing the market space of payment gateways. Post demonetization, the competition among the wallet providers has increased to a higher degree, which resulted in spending ample amount on customer acquisition. At the same time, this market is getting attraction from the global leading wallet providers.

Indian digital payment industry is segmented into rural and urban markets owing to the widespread digital payment services. The reducing unbanked population, government policies, increasing internet penetration, and simplified payment solutions are expected to boost the digital payments industry in rural India.

“Indian digital payments industry is at its pre-growth stage and is yet to gain a strong policy support from the government, else it might create uncertainty in the industry. The recent government policy “Goods and Services Tax (GST)” is expected to address the unorganized retail industry ecosystem, which will boost digital payments. There is a huge scope for the improvement of mobile banking services and card based transactions owing to the huge unbanked population in the country.” Srujan, Research Analyst at Infoholic Research
