Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/g7t2w9/insight_report) has announced the addition of the "Insight Report: Investors in Cards and Payments" report to their offering.
Consumers' growing preference for mobile devices, such as smartphones and tablets, and increasing internet penetration encouraged service providers to build payment solutions based around mobile devices.
Technological improvements in cloud computing and the use of open application programming interfaces (APIs) are also supporting the emergence of cost-effective solutions for cashless payments. The increased revenue potential due to the low cost of innovative payment solutions and the burgeoning market for digital payments are attracting investments from venture firms and participants in the payments industry, such as financial institutions, technology vendors and card scheme providers. Investments in e-commerce and online payments are the preferred investment sector followed by mobile payments and card processing services.
An increase in e-commerce sales activities and expected further expansion has created strong revenue generation potential for investors and payment solution developers alike. New market entrants are experimenting with social media to capitalize on opportunities in using social networks as a platform for conducting e-commerce activities.
There is also an increased focus on international money transfers and peer-to-peer (P2P) domestic transactions. Investments in mobile wallets also gained momentum in 2013, with their adoption expected to improve over the next five years.
Among the various investment types - acquisitions, asset transaction and venture financing - venture financing leads investment activities in terms of the volume of deals made in the cards and payments industry. Venture capitalists also emerged as key investors for mobile payment developers.
Unlike acquisitions and asset transactions, which involved single investors, venture financing deals registered participation from more than one investor. In terms of the regional dynamics, North America and Europe collectively accounted for the majority of investment deals made in the cards and payments industry during the last five years. Investment activities have been limited in the emerging markets of Asia-Pacific, Latin America, and the Middle East and Africa. However, the growing use of cards, large consumer markets and flexible regulatory environments are expected to make these regions key areas of investment over the forecast period.

In his session at Cloud Expo, Ed Featherston, a director and senior enterprise architect at Collaborative Consulting, discussed the key considerations around quality, volume, timeliness, and pedigree that must be dealt with in order to properly fuel that engine.
