Global Emerging Payment Means: A Worldwide Review is a report and interactive profile viewer about the rapid and on-going evolution of consumer payments occurring at a global level. The study is based on data gathered about 120 of the most significant emerging payment means worldwide, over a half of which have been launched since the beginning of 2012.
Finaccord has developed this study as a result of the rapid growth that has occurred in both the number of available emerging payments means and their key business metrics in recent years. As a result of rising internet and mobile usage around the world, the global volumes of both online and mobile payments have increased strongly with respective compound annual rates of growth of 15.9% and 61.0% estimated for the period from 2011 to 2015. Companies such as Alibaba, American Express, MasterCard, PayPal, Rakuten, Visa and Vodafone have benefited from these trends and there are now numerous other providers of emerging payment means around the world that are seeking to develop in their wake.
But what are these emerging payment means, who owns them, what do they offer, where do they operate and how sizeable / fast-growing do they appear to be? Moreover, what are the implications for organisations such as banks, mobile network operators, retailers and payment-related technology firms that can partner with such providers or develop their own payment means, and can insurance or assistance firms hope to distribute their products through this channel?
This report seeks to answer all of these questions by means of comprehensive research covering 120 of the most innovative providers of emerging means worldwide carried out between April and September 2015.
