The Paypers has launched the 2024 edition of the Global Overview of Payment Providers Report, the most recent market analysis of the B2B and B2C ecommerce payments ecosystem.


The report analyses key industry trends, investment patterns, and M&As to have taken place in the past months – featuring insightful perspectives on payment strategies that stakeholders should consider, along with comprehensive profiles of players in the field, outlining their distinct capabilities and portfolios.

State of the global commerce payments market

Influenced by factors such as consumer choice and industry-wide developments, the payments landscape is undergoing a constant evolution, with Worldpay’s Global Payments Report 2024 outlining that in 2023 alone, the global ecommerce market exceeded an estimated value of USD 6.1 trillion, exhibiting considerable growth when compared to the global POS value rate. Within this year, ecommerce accounted for 14.4% of global commerce and is anticipated to surpass 17% by 2027. The ongoing increase in ecommerce follows the digitalisation trend, made possible in part by mobile phone penetration, the growth of marketplace and mobile platform models, as well as social media platforms’ impact on online sales.

When looking at the current market size and the industry developments impacting the payments landscape, an increase in the global B2B payments market is expected, with an anticipated estimate of a total transaction value of USD 111 trillion by 2027. Whilst smaller in market size than those of the B2B sector, B2C payments are expected to continue their success in terms of convenience and accessibility, following the considerable efforts undertaken to address customer demand.

In this context, identifying ‘who is who’ in the payments space is essential for staying ahead, more so as payment companies are turning to strategic collaborations to improve their position and offerings, a trend expected to continue its growth in 2024. The Global Overview of Payment Providers Report brings together experts open to sharing insights that enable stakeholders to make informed decisions and forge industry connections suitable for their long-term goals.
