CIO Retail Summit Europe | October 26, 2017 | The May Fair Hotel - London, UK



Embracing the Mobile Wallet

Think Tank - 9:20 am - 9:45 am

There has been much discussion over the last couple of years about the development and adoption of Mobile or Digital Wallets, yet the pace of development and adoption continues to be slow. As Near Field Communications (NFC) becomes more ubiquitous across mobile devices, the discussion of e-Wallet development and adoption will only increase. Will the future be client-side wallets or provider-side wallets, will it be individual wallets offered by individual retailers, or amalgamated wallets offered by consortia?


  • Adoption rates are currently low with initial indications they may stay that way, with less than 40% indicating they would use an e-wallet
  • Mobile retailing is expected to eclipse $500M in just a few years however, growth that needs greater mobile wallet adoption
  • Retailers need to take a position on mobile wallets now to put themselves in a position to benefit from the growth potential
