According to TechSci Research report, “Mobile Wallet Market – Vietnam Industry Size, Share, Trends, Opportunity, and Forecast 2019-2029F, A significant driver propelling the growth of the Vietnam Mobile Wallet Market is the increasing smartphone penetration across the country. With the rising affordability of smartphones and improved access to mobile internet connectivity, a larger segment of the Vietnamese population now owns smartphones, enabling them to participate in the digital economy and utilize mobile wallet services. Smartphone penetration has not only expanded access to mobile wallets but has also heightened consumer familiarity and comfort with mobile-based transactions. The proliferation of smartphones has facilitated greater adoption of mobile wallets as users increasingly rely on their devices for a wide range of activities, including banking, shopping, and communication. The convenience and versatility offered by smartphones make them an ideal platform for mobile wallet services, allowing users to make payments, transfer money, and access financial services seamlessly from their handheld devices. The major challenges facing the Vietnam Mobile Wallet Market is the limited digital literacy and awareness among certain segments of the population. While smartphone penetration has increased rapidly, there remains a portion of the population, particularly in rural and underserved areas, with limited access to technology and digital skills. Many individuals, especially older adults and those from low-income backgrounds, may lack the knowledge and confidence to effectively use mobile wallet applications and understand their benefits. Additionally, there is a general lack of awareness about the availability and functionality of mobile wallets, with some consumers still relying on traditional cash-based transactions due to familiarity or mistrust of digital payment methods. Addressing this challenge requires comprehensive efforts to improve digital literacy and raise awareness about mobile wallet solutions through targeted education and outreach programs. Collaborative initiatives involving government agencies, financial institutions, mobile network operators, and non-profit organizations can play a crucial role in providing training, workshops, and informational campaigns to empower individuals with the skills and knowledge needed to adopt and utilize mobile wallets effectively. Moreover, mobile wallet providers need to focus on user-friendly design, intuitive interfaces, and multilingual support to cater to diverse user demographics and ensure accessibility for all segments of the population. By addressing the challenge of limited digital literacy and awareness, stakeholders can unlock the full potential of the Vietnam Mobile Wallet Market and drive greater financial inclusion and digital transformation across the country.
