South Korea Mobile Payment Trends

 

South Korea’s payments market faced a turning point in 2015 with the emergence of smart pay, a simplified form of mobile payments made using smartphones. Celent reviews the status of the South Korean smart pay market and forecasts future trends. At the moment, smart pay providers have their sights on specific demographics. However, each smart pay firm is also looking to expand its customer base. If smart pay providers have not clearly articulated their purpose and carved out a market space, then they risk being swept away in the maelstrom.
