As the largest revenue source of the global Fintech market, digital payments are set to reach $4.4trn transaction value this year, a 5% drop compared to pre-COVID-19 figures. According to data gathered by Buy Shares, China, and the United States, as the world’s two largest digital payments industries, are expected to generate 65% of that value.

The digital payments segment includes payments for products and services made over the Internet and mobile (POS) payments via smartphone applications. As the world’s largest digital payments industry, China is expected to generate $1.9trn worth transactions this year, or nearly 45% of all digital payments in 2020, revealed the Statista 2020 FinTech Survey.

The United States ranked as the second-largest market, with an $895.7bn transaction value and a 20% market share in 2020. Japan, the United Kingdom, and South Korea follow with $165.2bn, $164.4bn, and $113.5bn worth transactions, respectively.

Although the coronavirus pandemic has affected the entire FinTech industry, statistics show the leading digital payments markets are set to witness impressive growth in the following years.

The United States is forecast to reach $1.5trn transaction value by 2024, a 67% jump in four years.
