In the ownership segment, banks accounted for over 10% market share in 2019. Smaller and regional banks are developing proprietary wallet strategies for customer retention and value proposition. Banks are integrating mobile wallet features in their mobile application to improve the user experience by simplifying the onboarding process and increasing messaging opportunities with the customers. In addition, they are also providing mobile wallet solutions to protect their customers and institutions from fraud.

The optical/QR code wallets segment held a major market share of around 75% in 2019, which is attributed to the cost-effectiveness and simplicity of the QR code technology. A QR code does not incur any additional infrastructure expenses, resulting in the integration of QR codes by mobile wallet providers to expand their distribution network. Merchants, particularly in China and India, have little or no infrastructure and mobile wallet providers, such as Alipay and Paytm, adopt QR code technology.
