The convenient and easy mode of payment through a mobile wallet is another major driver of the market. Mobile wallets allow end-users to make payments or to manage financial transactions without any time and location constraints.

The Global Mobile Wallet market is expected to witness rapid growth during the forecast period due to certain emerging trends. One such trend is the increased use of mobile commerce. This trend is expected to continue during the forecast period due to the convenience and ease of payment facilitated by using smartphones, as well as initiatives undertaken to equip POS devices in convenience stores. Thus, the combined effect of the drivers and emerging trends is expected to drive the growth of the Global Mobile Wallet market during the forecast period.
