Impact of Covid-19 on Digital Payments Market:

The continued spread of COVID-19 pandemic has become a critical threat to the global economies. To curb the effect of the coronavirus, countries around the world are taking various measures, including a nationwide lockdown; limit the movements of the entire population; closure of public places and transport; and urge the public to stay indoors, maintain social distancing, and work from home. The resulting economic disruptions are enormous and the short-term decline in business activity, large and small, considerable.

With economic growth set to be severely affected, the financial outlook for the digital payments industry is distinct and will follow a same path, at least in the short term. But the industry's potential for stability and innovation will play an invaluable role in restarting the economy into the new normal.

Market Growth and Trends:

BFSI segment to dominate the digital payments market in future

  • The strong growth of digital banking has forced banks to transform their existing operations into an omnichannel approach, involving web, mobile or a physical branch. Therefore, banks offer various forms of digital experiences, such as online banking, digital banking, online banking. mobile banking and neobanking.
  • According to the Fujitsu Banking Digital Transformation Report 2018, the motivation for digital transformation in the BFSI industry is to improve bank efficiency (31%), followed by growth (30%).
  • Almost all banks practice online banking to reduce the hassle of customers who want to go to the physical bank branch. Some banks even allow customers to deposit a check simply by taking a photo of it. According to Pepper's change in the 2019 banking report, the ease and efficiency of transactions was the main reason why customers choose online banking.
  • In emerging nations like China and India, the mobile banking is increasing at a higher rate than in the developed markets. This credited to the price sensitive population and mobile banking services offer cash rewards, vouchers and coupons that can be redeemed in future transactions.

Market Drivers and Restraints:

In order to combat the competitive scenario in this market, organizations invest in futuristic technologies to deliver better customer experiences. Digital payments provide important customer information that should help organizations define their future tactics. Digital payments are becoming crucial in enhancing the customer experience and increasing business revenue. Transaction information collected from digital payments offers merchants with clear data about customers and helps improve various aspects of the business, including decisions related to marketing, promotions, and customer service. The payment data management and analysis solution is a useful tool, as the data collected by several payment devices is analyzed to gather useful insights, helping merchants to better understand consumer behavior. Additionally, digital payments are expected to contribute to revolutionary, responsive and frictionless shopping experiences for customers.


Cross-border trade increases year after year as more and more organizations buy goods and services around the world. Because of the shortage of a single universal standardization and different government regulations, digital payment providers are unable to take advantage of this opportunity. Countries have different data storage compliance and payment regulations that make cross-border payments inefficient. Also, the national payment infrastructure is not designed for cross-border payments. Additionally, complex government structures and rigid payment structures add challenges in implementing cross-border payment solutions. Therefore, without the establishment of global standards, the large-scale implementation of digital payment solutions is not possible.
