Financial services companies are recognizing the importance of open banking initiatives and application programming interfaces. Traditional banks understand that they must improve their digital capabilities to compete in the sector and avoid being disintermediated by new entrants with superior offers and services. For instance, numerous financial services companies such as PayPal, Wells Fargo, and Visa are supporting Open Banking projects. Also, in Europe, Open Banking initiatives are progressively becoming the norm because banks are legally required to make account information accessible via APIs under the Revised Payment Services Directive (PSD2), effective from 2018.
Open Banking APIs boost a bank's attractiveness and enable it to meet the changing expectations of existing clients and attract new ones. The APIs may also be used as a one-of-a-kind solution to boost customer interaction and respond to consumer requirements in a safe, agile, and future-proof way. Open Banking APIs are significant assets for financial services organizations because they allow them to expand service offerings, boost client interaction, and create new digital income channels, which would offer a significant opportunity for the digital payment market to expand during the forecast period.

Impact of COVID-19 Pandemic on Digital Payment Market
The COVID-19 pandemic has benefited the digital payment solutions industry. Businesses are facing new challenges due to the pandemic and the development of remote work environments. At least 58 governments in developing countries have adopted digital payments to give COVID-19 help, according to a World Bank survey of policy responses to the pandemic. At least 36 countries received the funds in fully functional accounts that may be used for saving or transactions in addition to withdrawing cash. Financial inclusion necessitates such extensive capability. Further, the emergence of the pandemic in 2020 has prompted a slew of challenges for global market operations. Healthcare infrastructures of developed economies have collapsed due to the rising number of COVID-19 cases.
