BillDesk processes around USD 60 billion worth of digital payments every year.
On the basis of geography, the report segments the global online payment gateway market into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific (APAC), and Rest of the world.
APAC is likely to play a leading role in the development of the global online payment gateway market over the forecast period due to the growing support lent by Asian governments to digital/cashless payments. Asian countries, which have traditionally been plagued by corruption on a massive level, have realized the immense benefits of digital transactions in wiping out corruption and are thus supporting the widespread use of digital payment channels. India has been at the forefront of this movement, with PM Narendra Modi supporting a cashless India since before his inauguration and carrying on with the agenda through the demonetization initiative. In the bid to make commerce more efficient, many Asian countries are taking the digital route, which is likely to benefit the online payment gateway market in the region over the forecast period.
The growing availability of the Internet in Asian countries is also likely to help bring about steady growth of the online payment gateway market in the region over the forecast period.
