Canadian Payments Forecast - 2015
Published: July 30, 2015 Content info: 120 Pages, 100 Charts and Tables

The Canadian payments landscape is undergoing fundamental changes as new technologies vie for the attention of consumers. Shopping habits are shifting as consumers embrace the convenience and functionality offered by smart phones, tablets and an almost ubiquitous internet connection. While mobile is mainstream in many areas, mobile payments are still embryonic. Key players in the industry continue to wrestle with their business models and ways to fit all the pieces together to present a compelling offering to consumers in an already crowded market. And then there's the matter of waiting for consumers to get their hands on smart devices - including wearable technology - that can accommodate the payment solutions being dreamt up in innovation labs. While these developments capture the largest mindshare amongst payment executives, traditional electronic payments continue to grow, draining the remaining life out of paper-based payments.

Canadian Payments Forecast, 2015 examines the Canadian consumer payments market in the context of developments in the Canadian economy and the fundamental shifts taking place in technology.
