The India digital payment market was valued at $1.4 Trillion in 2021 and it is expected to reach $23.2 Trillion at a CAGR of 28.4% between 2022 and 2032. Digital payment is a type of electric transaction that is made through various mobile payment applications without any physical exchange of money involved. The Indian Government has been projecting many ways to develop and encourage digital payments platforms across the country, which would help the market gain significant growth in upcoming years.
In India, Andhra Pradesh holds the largest share in the digital payment market.
The unified payment interface of NPCI is the most widely used platform across the country. In the last few years, it has accounted for more than four hundred crore transactions. It was almost twice the transaction that was seen in the last two years. However, the usage of digital payment applications among Indian citizens has increased considerably. During and after the pandemic situation of COVID-19, the digital payment method has been rising. Several major factors such as growing usage of smartphones, mobile payment applications, increase in high-speed internet facilities, and net banking facilities are estimated to drive the Indian digital payment market during the upcoming years. In addition, India has been already leading the digital payment market for the last few years. Moreover, RBI has developed many rules regarding digital payment to conduct online transactions safer and more secure. Authentication for all recurring credit and debit card payments has been implemented by the RBI, and this requires all the payment companies to replace the details of the card with an alternative code called a token. This will help the customers to conduct secure digital payments through mobile applications or internet banking processes.
