India has the highest FinTech adoption rate globally

India is amongst the fastest growing Fintech markets in the world. Of the 2,100+ FinTechs existing in India today, over 67% have been setup in the last 5 years.

The Indian Fintech market is currently valued at $31 Bn and is expected to grow to $84 Bn by 2025, at a CAGR of 22%.

The Fintech transaction value size is set to grow from US$ 66 Bn in 2019 to US$ 138 Bn in 2023, at a CAGR of 20%.

The Indian Fintech ecosystem sees a wide range of subsegments including Payments, Lending, Wealth Technology (WealthTech), Personal Finance Management, Insurance Technology (InsurTech), Regulation Technology (RegTech) etc.

The industry has seen cumulative investments into domestic FinTechs of more than $10 Bn since 2016.

As of May 2021, India’s United Payments Interface (UPI) has seen participation of 224 banks and recorded 2.6 billion transactions worth ~$68 Bn representing a jump of 15x from just 3 years ago for the same period in 2018.

Industry Scenario

It is expected that the Indian Fintech market, currently valued at $31 Bn, will grow to $84 Bn by 2025, at a CAGR of 22%.

While Payments and Alternative Finance segments constituted more than 90 percent of the sector’s investment flows in 2015, there has been a major shift towards a more equitable distribution of investment across sectors since. In 2020, FinTech SaaS and InsurTechs saw total investments of $145 Mn and $215 Mn respectively, representing a 4-5X growth over their 2015 funding flow.

Amongst India’s 50+ FinTechs with more than $100 Mn valuation, there are 4 Wealth and Broking FinTechs, 5 InsurTechs and 8 SaaS FinTechs.

UPI is expected to grow significantly with the participation of domestic and international players (Paytm, Walmart and Google) continuing to dominate the segment, with a heavy focus on development the payments infrastructure through investments.

Neo-banks in India are emerging as a key segment for growth in the space – with over 15 Neo-banks currently in India, several of them under development or in beta stages. The segment has been growing steadily, with several private banks partnering with these Fintechs to explore synergies and better means of service-delivery.
