COVID-19 Impact

The COVID-19 pandemic had significant impacts on the payment security market. With a surge in online transactions and remote work, there has been increase in cyber threats and fraudulent activities. This has accelerated the adoption of payment security solutions, as businesses and financial institutions prioritize safeguarding sensitive data.

Payment Security Market Trends

Contactless payments are an emerging trend in the payment security industry. This technology allows consumers to make transactions by simply tapping their cards or mobile devices, thereby reducing the need for physical contact. As the world adapts to a more digital & touchless environment, the adoption of contactless payments will accelerate. This growing adoption will provide robust protection against potential threats, ensuring the safety of transactions and maintaining consumer trust. For instance, in June 2023, the Netherlands achieved a significant milestone with the nationwide rollout of OVpay, a contactless public transport payment system. This development allows commuters to conveniently use their debit cards, credit cards, or digital wallets for tap-in & tap-out procedures.

Biometric authentication is an emerging trend in the global market, providing a higher level of protection and convenience. This technology uses unique physical or behavioral characteristics, such as fingerprints, facial recognition, or iris scans, to verify a user's identity. As cyber threats evolve, biometrics will offer a more secure means of transaction verification. The adoption of biometric authentication is on the rise as it ensures secure payments and reduces fraud while simplifying the user experience, thus making it a pivotal trend in the payment security industry.
