Not many new players will enter Payments Interface space: Report

New Delhi: The Unified Payments Interface (UPI) system may not see many new players entering the space as it has got aggregated with few players, according to a report.

As a payment product, UPI will continue to scale with more innovative use cases coming in and will remain default payment gateway for the country, said a report by The Digital Fifth.

While UPI has enabled innovation in the payment space, it has resulted in larger players taking complete control of the market, it said.

With wallet business depleting and UPI getting aggregated with few players, there may not be many new players entering this space.

The report also came out with a list of top-30 fintech influencers, which includes Niti Aayog Advisor Anna Roy, Ujjivan Small Finance Bank CEO Nitin Chugh and CreditMantri co-founder Gowri Mukherjee.

Advisor on industry and data management and analysis at the Niti Aayog, Roy also leads the Women in Entrepreneurship Platform (WEP) initiative, supporting women entrepreneurs in India. She is leading the Government of India's initiatives on frontier technologies such as BigData, artificial intelligence and Blockchain.

The report further said the remittance business would continue to scale as the market has remained largely untapped as of now.

India will see emergence of few large remittance players with focus on high-traffic corridors, it said.

The business-to-business segment has done well over past few years across POS (point-of-sale) and payment gateway segments with firms such as Pinelabs and Razorpay, building scalable and profitable business models, it said.
