The outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic is expected to positively impact the growth of the market over the forecast period. The COVID-19 pandemic has significantly influenced people’s daily lives and their buying behavior. The increasing demand for contactless mobile payments in retail shops such as drug and grocery stores to help reduce the chances of virus transmission is expected to drive the market growth over the forecast period.
