Government initiatives to promote cashless economy to drive the demand for mobile money market
The mobile money market is projected to grow from USD 3.4 billion in 2019 to USD 12.0 billion by 2024 at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 28.7% from 2019 to 2024. Major factors driving the mobile money market include an increase in the number of mobile subscribers, government initiatives to promote cashless economies, and rise in the number of businesses with digital payment-based business models.

By transaction mode, the Point of Sale segment to account for a higher market share during the forecast period
The Point of Sale (PoS) solution includes services provided at the PoS and are extremelyuseful for the brick and mortar-based businesses.POS solutions include Near-Field Communication (NFC), Magnetic Secure Transmission (MST), and sound wave-based payments.

NFC is a technology that enables simple, fast, and secure bidirectional communication between 2 electronic devices.This short-range wireless technology helps access, communicate, and transfer data electronically and seamlessly between 2 NFC-enabled devices.

The technology is referred to as an advancement of the Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) technology and is an enhancement in contactless card transactions and payments technology. One of the key advantage of sound waves-based payments is that they do not need any extra hardware, which makes it a suitable choice for developing regions.

By nature of payment, the Person to Person segment to hold the largest market size during the forecast period
Person to Person (P2P) mobile payments are payments between 2 individuals carried out using mobile devices.Individuals can use multiple transaction modes to carry out P2P transactions, such as Unified Payment Interface (UPI) payment mode bank transfer and Short Message Service (SMS) payment, among others.

P2P payments are vastly used around the world.This next-generation nature of payments helps financial institutes, such as banks to facilitate its customers with enhanced payment options to transfer and receive funds and remittances, pay bills, and make payments.

P2P payment services provided by banks offer customers with heightened convenience as P2P services provide immediate withdrawal and deposit facilities and facilitate instant money transfers through any mobile device and Mobile Network Operator (MNO).The stream revenue generated for supplementing P2P payments for banks and other stakeholders involved in the mobile money ecosystem are calculated through volume of transactions, processing fees, and commissions earned for each transaction.

As many banks and third-party application providers now offer P2P payment options, the competition between P2P payment service providers is high. Healthy competition between P2P payment service providers is expected to boost the global P2P mobile money market in upcoming years.
