Smartphone usage continues to increase across the world. Global smartphone shipments grew 12 percent annually from 1.28 billion in 2014, to a record 1.44 billion in 2015, according to data from market research firm Strategy Analytics. Nearly two thirds of Americans are smartphone owners, and many of them are embracing the increasing choice of mobile payment options, according to the latest MasterCard Mobile Payments Study (MCMPS). The study reveals that the topics of security and safety in mobile payments remain a key driver of conversations (at a whopping 94 percent).

The fourth annual study of its kind, developed in partnership with PRIME Research, tracked 85,000 social media posts globally in 2012, and tracked 2 million global social media posts about mobile payments in 2015. Insights were gleaned from conversations that took place on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Forums, Google+ and YouTube. A continued positive sentiment towards mobile payment technology has followed a two year trend. MasterCard VP of digital communications stated the conversation among consumers has evolved as more choices in mobile payments are made available. They seem to be fully embracing the next generation of payments.
