IOT Payments Market: Global Opportunity Analysis and Industry Forecast

IoT Payment Market Overview

We've come to expect a smooth payment experience at every corner, whether we're shopping online, in stores, at kiosks, or via our smartphones.These channels almost seem to be yesterday's technology when you think about the possibilities with the Internet of Things.


This is why the Internet of Things is going to have such a profound impact on payments. As reported by Forbes, in the next two years the global IoT market is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate of 28.5 percent, from $157 billion in 2016 to $457 billion in 2020. IoT can be described as connecting any physical device to the Internet and allowing data to flow, thus enabling automation, real-time information and analytics. Enabling payments is the next stop for IoT devices to expand how and when customers pay.


IoT Payment Market Dynamics

The Internet of Things (IoT) is growing rapidly—8.4 billion connected "things" are forecast to be in use in 2017. That number is expected to increase to 20.4 billion in 2020, and starting in 2017, the IoT market is projected to be worth more than $1 billion annually.


One major use case that is expanding to the IoT is payment. Payment is now possible using a phone, wearable, or home assistant and is spreading to virtual or augmented reality experiences and connected cars. However, as the number of connected things increases, the number of end points vulnerable to attack also increases. Recent high profile IoT attacks (such as the malware attack using Mirai3 ) illustrate the vulnerability of certain IoT devices. While consumers demand the ability to make a payment wherever they are and with whatever device they are using, they also want the transaction to be frictionless and secure. This demand creates a challenge for merchants, issuers, and acquirers.


The story of the Internet of Things (IoT) has two parts: the evolution of devices that are now connected to the Internet, and the movement towards the machine-to-machine economy in which newly connected devices interact with each other.


Connecting more devices opens the door to developing new digital experiences for both consumers and businesses. One such experience is the payment transaction, including both the ability to pay and the ability to accept payment.


Digital payments continue to evolve, with the inclusion of payment-enabled IoT devices augmenting the browser and mobile payment experience. Consumers can pay using a range of newly connected devices, including connected cars, household appliances, and most recently, wearables. In parallel, the IoT is also changing the retail point of sale to include a number of new touch points, including parking meters, fitting room mirrors, and vending machines.


As a result, financial institutions, payment providers, and technology companies can now create innovative capabilities that deliver increasingly frictionless, relevant, and secure payment experiences.


Figure 1 illustrates the five key aspects of IoT payment:

• Device

• Connectivity

• Credentials

• Experience

• Security




As shown in Figure 1, IoT devices range from small wearable devices and shopping carts to home appliances and cars. The IoT device uses a connectivity channel to trigger a payment transaction, with technology depending on the environment. Payment credentials can be stored remotely in the cloud, or locally, in a secure element, depending on the form factor and payment use case. The consumer experience can vary; it ranges from pushing a button or using voice commands to a frictionless experience based on location or sensors. Data is secured using a variety of techniques to authenticate the consumer and transmit the payment credentials securely.


IoT payments can be implemented in a variety of environments, including:

• Automotive

• Homes

• Wearables

• Industrial

• Retail


IoT Payments Characteristics.

Certain characteristics of the IoT payments use case may have an impact on security.


Autonomous and invisible payment.

Many IoT payments scenarios only make sense if transactions occur invisibly or autonomously—that is, with no direct user interaction. However, user authentication is an important part of the security architecture of the traditional payments infrastructure. There is therefore a need for effective user delegation and authorization mechanisms.


Payment device identity.

Arguably one of the most important factors in securing IoT payments is an immutable way of identifying the device. Reliable identities enable devices to establish trust, communicate with each other, and also to send out data with confidentiality and integrity. In most cases, public key cryptography will be the most feasible security technology used to interact with IoT devices. The public key infrastructure (PKI) depends on assurances that the sender of an encrypted message is indeed the owner of the key pair.
