There are three factors that will improve traction for the digital wallet and they are now being recognized and leveraged

Mobile Wallet Wars has confirmed representatives from MasterCard, Google Wallet, Verizon, PayPal, Citi Bank, Visa, Deloitte and more to discuss the seismic change brought about by mobile payments and digital wallets to the traditional payments industry.

Over the next 10 years, revenue forecasts for the global mobile wallet market is expected to reach $5,250 billion, growing at 127.5% from 2013 to 2010 – Allied Market Research. With such returns at stake, the mobile payments industry has reached a tipping point with major financial institutions, wireless carriers, retailers and software developers all launching new offerings to the market.

Indeed, consumer adoption, security, the value proposition and retailer involvement will be discussed in much greater depth at this key forum. To examine these opportunities and their effect of the industry, the Mobile Wallet Wars Conference 2014 (19-20 June, NY) will have targeted sessions from these powerful forces.

Dave Birch, Founder, Consult Hyperion suggests there is an imminent transition in the market to increase consumers and retailers to buy-in to the mobile wallet. He states, “There are three factors that will improve traction for the digital wallet and they are now being recognized and leveraged - they are convenience, security and identification and the underlying architecture itself. This could be what gets the mobile wallet to tip to mainstream adoption.”
