The global mobile commerce market grew at a CAGR of around 30% during 2014-2019.

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

The increasing usage of wireless handheld devices that offer enhanced security, convenience and easy access to the internet has encouraged tech-savvy consumers to make mobile-based payments through digital wallets and online payment gateways. These methods enable buyers to make contactless payments, thereby eliminating card swiping and manual entry, which helps in reducing human error and facilitating a smoother checkout experience. This trend has further been facilitated by the introduction of multiple safety features in mobile and wearable devices, including biometrics authentication such as fingerprint and facial recognition, which have made mobile payments more secure. Moreover, many service providers are collaborating with mobile operators to offer advanced payment solutions. Along with this, governments of various countries are undertaking initiatives to promote digital payment methods, which is providing a positive impact on market growth. Furthermore, the rising trend of bring-your-own-device (BYOD) and growing broadband connectivity are among the other factors stimulating the growth of the industry. Looking forward, the analyst expects the market to continue its strong growth during the next five years.
