Mobile money transactions in emerging markets reach $ 870 billion, according to Juniper Research

Mobile money transactions in emerging markets will exceed US $ 870 billion in 2026, up from US $ 555 billion in 2021, accounting for 60% of the growth, according to a study by Juniper Research.

Mobile money services include microinsurance, microloans, micro-savings, and mobile money transfer.

According to Juniper Research, growth will be driven by the transition of mobile money providers such as M-Pesa to the PaaP (payments as platform) model, which allows money providers to offer their users l ‘access to third-party services. like e-commerce. This will create additional sources of income.

Juniper Research identifies PaaP as essential for increasing mobile money revenue. He recommends that suppliers focus on building their ecosystems now by accepting merchant partnerships to take advantage of this opportunity.

Microcredit is the fastest growing segment
According to Mobile Money in Emerging Markets: Segment Analysis, Vendor Strategies & Market Forecasts 2021-2026, microloans will be the fastest growing segment of mobile money, registering 180% growth over the next five years. Mobile money service providers can use microloans to increase their income by providing banking-like services.

“Although microloans are by their very nature small in scale, they are rapidly gaining in importance, enabling users to access credit as financial inclusion increases. By offering these services to users, mobile money services can anticipate competition from banks, while increasing their average income per user, thus creating a virtuous circle, ”says Damla Sat, co-author of the research.

Africa and Middle East
Africa and the Middle East will lead mobile money transactions over the next five years, accounting for 56% of the value of global emerging markets by 2026. The study suggests that African providers are focusing on expansion of mobile money services such as microinsurance and micro-savings to capitalize on the opportunity.
