Propelled by operational and technological innovations, the payments industry is constantly revamping itself in an ambitious bid to cope with the dynamic nature of customer needs. Multiple near-term, individual trends are revolutionising their way toward sculpting the new-age payment and card landscape. Both technologies as well as data-driven strategies are being weighed against differentiated experiences, with an objective to render a seamless and secure transaction flow. Added to that, firms are moving ahead of the legacy systems and stepping toward infrastructure modernization involving targeted mergers & acquisitions (M&A). Considering these circumstances, services providers are assessing the relevance of these trends two-three years from the present day.
