LONDON – Though cash use remains relatively high in Malaysia, novel payment technologies are anticipated to gain traction in the short run. The major opportunity is to provide services and products that are easy to use, secure and convenient in order to boost digital payments penetration.

To promote payment cards adoption in Malaysia providers should use reward programs and merchant partnerships, and also educate the local consumers about the benefits and advantages of payment cards over cash.

Despite the moderate size in terms of absolute value, the e-commerce market in Malaysia is projected to witness impressive growth at a 16% CAGR through 2021, larger than the majority of countries in the Southeast Asian region.
