There are multiple security issues like frauds & chargebacks, technical integration, malicious app clones, and mobile frauds that have an adverse impact on this market.

The integration of Internet of Things (IoT) with mobile payments is an emerging trend in the mobile payment technologies market.IoT is a system of interrelated computing devices, mechanical and digital machines, or people that can transfer data over a network without requiring any human-to-human or human-to-computer interaction.

The integration of IoT in mobile payment technologies eases the payment experience of consumers and merchants, ensuring smooth and efficient payments on both ends.Due to increased convenience and safety provided by IoT-based mobile payments, many people are moving towards mobile payment technologies.

For example, MasterCard integrated IoT for bringing payments to a wide range of consumer products for around 50 billion devices that are expected to be connected to the internet by 2020. The company is also planning to come up with latest IoT-based devices to boost digital payments.

In 2019, Fidelity National Information Services (FIS) acquired Worldpay Inc. for approximately $35 billion. Through this acquisition, FIS aims to expand its payment processing capabilities and also enhance the scalability of both the companies. Worldpay is a global company providing payment processing technology & solutions to their customers. It was founded in 1997 and is headquartered in London, the UK.

The initiatives taken by governments to promote a cashless economy is a major driver for the growth of the mobile payment technologies market.A cashless economy is the one in which financial transactions are not done with banknotes or physical currency but via digital modes of payment.

In this regard, government across the world along with the central banks are taking several initiatives to move towards a cashless economy, which ultimately leads to the growth of the mobile payment technologies market.According to a study conducted by MasterCard in 2019, the UAE has one of the fastest changing payment ecosystems because of a strong government leadership to promote electronic payments.

For example, in May 2019, the Dubai Department of Finance launched a new digital payment wallet which is specially designed to pay government fees. This digital payment wallet facilitates smooth transfer of funds and promotes mobile payment technologies.

The mobile payment technologies market is governed by the Payment Services Directives (PSD2) which regulates the payment service providers throughout the European Union (EU) and European Economic Area (EEA).This regulation primarily focuses on developing a more integrated payments market in Europe and encourages non-banks to participate in this industry to enhance competition.

PSD2 also ensures safer and more secured payments to increase protection of the customers and their data. Hence, this regulation is expected to further drive the mobile payment technologies market by providing smooth and efficient payment experience for both customers and payment service providers.
