Conversely, the "lack of global standards for cross-border payments is a key factor expected to restrain the growth of the digital payment market", ReportLinker stated.

The digital payment market in the Asia-Pacific (APAC) region is expected to be the leading contender during the forecasted period. ReportLinker attributed the growth to the increased demand for digital payment services and developments in digital tech for stakeholders in the digital payments ecosystem in the APAC region.
