Burgeoning usage of next-gen payments to play a pivotal role in driving the next phase of non-cash transactions growth

After eight years of double-digit growth, global non-cash transactions volume growth decelerated to 7.8% in 2020, reaching 785 billion transactions. We estimate global non-cash transactions growth to rebound to 18.6% CAGR (2020–2025F) and volumes to reach 1.8 trillion by the end of the forecast period. Increasing use of next-gen payment methods − buy now, pay later (BNPL), invisible, biometric, and cryptocurrency − will play a pivotal role in driving the growth.
