COVID-19 is predicted to have a profound effect on the payment cards market. Contactless is considered the more hygienic and safe approach of making proximity payments, and this is being strengthened by ecosystem players who are shifting marketing messages from contactless transactions used to increase convenience levels toward safety and health.

Globally, contactless adoption will increase between +6% to +8% in comparison to pre-COVID-19 expectations, with the issuance levels forecast to grow by 14% YoY, accounting for over 65% of all cards issued in 2020, according to Shayne Heffernan, CEO and Founder of HEFFX.

“Although the overarching trend toward contactless was well in place prior, COVID-19 can further increase the speed of contactless adoption, particularly among countries and economies where cash remains king, and usage not only being encouraged by payment ecosystem players and suppliers but also by governments and health organizations.

“The way people purchase things is quickly evolving and changing. COVID-19 has driven a significant shift in consumer spending habits spurred by economic uncertainly and a push toward the purchase of mainly essential items. There’s also a surge in e-commerce whereby consumers have become even more heavily dependent on online retail channels to avoid crowded places to limit social interactions,” Shayne Heffernan points out.

However, with a significant strain placed on e-commerce, physical brick and mortar retail still has a major role to play and is crucial in many instances. In most countries, retailers considered essential (e.g., supermarkets) remain open. They have put in place measures to help combat the spread of COVID-19 to shoppers and customers, including the enforcement of 2-meter distancing and placing protective screens at checkouts. They are also encouraging digital payments over cash and, wherever possible, completely contactless transactions.
