Mobile Commerce Market Outlook

Mobile commerce, or m-commerce, represents a subset of e-commerce that refers to the use of wireless handheld devices for performing commercial transactions online. It comprises in-app purchases, mobile banking, virtual marketplace apps, such as txhe Amazon mobile app, and digital wallets, including Apple Pay, Google Pay, and Samsung Pay. Mobile commerce utilizes wireless devices, such as smartphones, smartwatches, cellphones, and tablets, to initiate, authorize, and confirm the exchange of money. This is facilitated by the availability of point-of-sale (POS) terminals that process transactions utilizing nearfield communications or the internet.

The global mobile commerce market size reached US$ 1109.1 Billion in 2022. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the market to reach US$ 5,867.1 Billion by 2028, exhibiting a growth rate (CAGR) of 31% during 2023-2028.

Mobile Commerce Market Trends:

The increasing usage of wireless handheld devices that offer enhanced convenience, security, and easy access to the internet has encouraged tech-savvy consumers to make phone-based charges through digital wallets and online payment gateways, which is among the primary factors driving the mobile commerce market. Besides this, the introduction of various safety features in mobile and wearable devices, including biometrics authentication, such as fingerprint and facial recognition, which have made online payments more secure, is further augmenting the market growth. Moreover, the incorporation of fraud-prevention tools, including card verification value (CVV), address verification service (AVS), fraud scoring, and authentication checks by m-commerce merchants in their platforms, is also catalyzing the global market. Apart from this, the launch of several policies by the government bodies to promote digital payment methods, on account of the sudden outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic, is acting as another significant growth-inducing factor. Furthermore, the emerging trend of bring-your-own-device (BYOD) and the rising broadband connectivity are expected to bolster the mobile commerce market in the coming years.
