Mobile payment

Is this the turning point?

Mobile payment has been on the agenda of numerous players across industries for more than a decade. Now, with Apple Pay launched and the markets getting equipped, mobile payment may finally take off, also in developed markets. Most recent example underlining the potential for a final uptake, the German grocery chain ALDI, known as a rather traditional player, announced the introduction of mobile payment in Germany, a country with a current cash share of more than 80%.

Our report takes this opportunity to shed some light on the latest developments of the ecosystem, compare the maturity of existing solutions, and analyze the enablers for mobile payment to take off in Western markets. We  then discuss how players in the industry from MNOs, banks and payment networks to merchants and handset manufacturers should position to take advantage of the opportunity window.
