Service segment insights
The various services provided in the fintech sector are regtech, payment/billing, insurtech, money transfer/remittance, mortgage/real estate, and others (lending, capital market, and wealth management). Among these segments, the payment/billing services will be the major growth driver in the global market, leading to a revenue generation of USD 207.11 Bn by 2023. This growth can be attributed to contactless cards and the emergence of retail-focused fintech companies looking to expand the use of this functionality by taking it to every corner of commerce. Popularity of payment apps like GoUrl, Cayan, Stripe, and Amazon Pay, among customers and retailers, will further drive the market. Regtech is expected to expand at a CAGR of 22.05%, followed by payment/billing. This is mainly due to the implementation of new regulations pertaining to the fintech sector.
