  • Published Date: July 13, 2021

Mobile POS Terminals Market size is set to surpass USD 70 billion by 2027, according to a new research report by Global Market Insights Inc.

The rising incidents of financial fraud coupled with the formulation of stringent regulations for payment processing are fueling the market growth. According to Atlas VPN, financial fraud complaints in the U.S. increased by over 104% in the first quarter of 2020 compared to the first quarter of 2019. Government authorities have directed merchants and issuers to adopt EMV technology to prevent fraud on credit and debit cards. This has driven the demand for EMV-enabled mPOS terminals for faster & secure transactions. The technology enables merchants to authorize credit card payments and comply with security standards.

The coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic severely impacted the market in FY2020 due to imposition of lockdown and shutdown of manufacturing plants. However, the rise in online shopping has created a demand for mPOS terminals in the e-commerce sector. For instance, online retail sales in Canada increased by 1.3% to USD 55.2 billion in 2020. Also, the pandemic has resulted in faster adoption of digital payments among both buyers and sellers. Around 42% of Indian active internet users shopped online during the COVID-19 pandemic, with around half of those being first-time online shoppers. This is expected to increase the demand for mPOS terminals that accept NFC and card transactions.
