Digital wallet segment commands largest share of the payment security market

Based on payment mode, the digital wallet segment commanded the largest share of the overall payment security market in 2021 and is expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. The emergence of payment-enabled mobile phones, connected and real-time marketing, the social media effect, and the increasing shift to QR code-based transactions are major factors impacting the growth of this segment.

According to a report by FIS, a financial services technology group, the use of digital-wallet-based transactions grew globally by 7% in 2020 and predicts that digital wallets will account for more than half of all e-commerce payments worldwide by 2024, as consumers shift from card-based to account- and QR code-based transactions. Similarly, WorldPay’s 2020 Global Payments report predicts that, by 2023, 52.2% of e-commerce transactions and 29.5% of all POS transactions will be done through digital wallets. Thus, the increasing shift towards digital wallets is driving the growth of this segment.

Based on industry vertical, the BFSI segment commanded the largest share of the overall payment security market in 2021. The large market share of this segment is attributed to the rising implementation of regulatory security compliance, rising demand for cloud-based security solutions, and the increasing risk of cyber threats against BFSI infrastructure.

Based on organization size, the large enterprise segment commanded the largest share of the global payment security market in 2021 and is expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period.
