Payments in India 2017: What Consumers Want

Summary

"Payments in India 2017: What Consumers Want", report examines the consumer payments market in India, considering payment cards, online payments, P2P payments, and newer payment technologies such as mobile wallets and contactless. The report also examines the main regulatory players overseeing the market.

The second-largest consumer market globally, India remains a cash-driven economy. Cash accounts for 96.8% of total payment transaction volume. This is due to a lack of adequate banking infrastructure, limited awareness of electronic payments, and low acceptance at retailers. The share of cash is anticipated to fall gradually over the forecast period (2017-2021) as a result of initiatives by the central bank such as measures to tackle "black" money, a cut in interchange fees, and the appointment of banking correspondents in rural areas to increase financial awareness. The emergence of contactless technology is also anticipated to support payment card market growth. The main factors that will play a significant role in the process will be the rise of smartphone penetration, increasing access to the internet, and the development of a digital payments infrastructure.
