The global digital payment market is estimated to grow at 23.8% CAGR in the next five years to become a $12.4 trillion market by 2025.

Between FY’2017 and FY’2020, the UPI payments grew at CAGR of 785% and 570% in terms of volume and value, respectively. The exponential growth rate of UPI payments indicates the changing market conditions in India – the country which has historically been a cash-based economy.

Dazeinfo earlier reported about the overall growth of digital transactions in India, which is clocking nearly 100 million transactions per day. The unprecedented growth rate of digital payments – driven by the increasing penetration of smartphones and 4G adoption – will lead to 1.5 billion daily digital transactions in India 2023.

The latest GFF report identifies India as a leader across parameters – regulation of costs of payment systems, laws in place, availability of alternate payment systems, share of e-money in payment systems, oversight by the Central Government, fast payment systems available in the country, volume and growth of e-money, etc.
