Selbyville, Delaware, UNITED STATES

Selbyville, Delaware, March 23, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- As per the report published by Global Market Insights Inc., the Global Mobile Card Reader Market was estimated at USD 10 billion in 2022 and is expected to surpass a valuation of $65 billion by 2032, progressing at a CAGR of 15% from 2023 to 2032. The report provides a detailed analysis of top winning strategies, drivers & opportunities, competitive scenario, wavering market trends, market size, statistics & estimations, and major investment pockets.

Positive outlook of the e-commerce business globally will bolster the demand for cashless modes of payment, which, in turn, will push the adoption of mobile card readers. According to July 2022 estimates by the International Monitoring Fund (IMF), the total mobile transactions volume reached USD 1.7 billion in FY2021, witnessing a 27% growth from 2020. The visible uptick in online transactions worldwide and the introduction of consumer-friendly payment methods across several online platforms will further augment product sales over the next ten years.

The increased adoption of products made of eco-friendly and recyclable materials due to heightening environmental concerns may, however, impact the mobile card reader market dynamics. Governments and administrative authorities have been implementing measures to minimize plastic usage. Since payment cards or keys are made using plastic, these regulations may impede industry growth during the forecast period.
