The global online banking industry has been playing an increasingly important role in recent years, driven by widespread internet penetration and changing consumer habits.


Growth in the e-commerce sector has seen more customers make the transition from paper payments to online payments. Consumers are now demanding a greater degree of transparency and flexibility in their banking requirements.

However, mobile payments continue to witness significant growth in developing economies like Kenya, China, Brazil and India.

Growth in the online and mobile payment sector will continue, with state institutions contributing to the expansion of alternative payment channels.
