QR Code Payment Market Growth & Trends

For instance, as per the Groupe Speciale Mobile Association’s (GSMA) The State of Mobile Internet Connectivity Report 2021, by the end of 2020, 51% of the population across the world, or more than 4 billion individuals, were using mobile internet, a rise of 225 million since the end of 2019. In addition, worldwide, smartphones held 68% of entire mobile connections in 2020, compared to 64% in 2019 and 47% in 2016.

The volumes of digital payment transactions were already witnessing a rise owing to the growth of e-commerce. Furthermore, the increasing government initiatives to digitize payments are further expected to create market growth opportunities. For instance, in August 2020, the government of Andhra Pradesh, India, launched an initiative to drive financial inclusion and promote digital payments in rural areas to encourage and allow citizens to make and receive cashless payments using QR codes.

Furthermore, COVID-19 has brought numerous changes in the payments industry, including the adoption of mobile payment solutions.
