The India Unified Payment Interface (UPI) Market was valued at $60.3 billion in 2021 and it is expected to reach $440.3 billion at a CAGR of 14.80% between 2022 and 2032. Unified Payment Interface or UPI is a money transaction platform that combines various banking services and features. The owner of the UPI is the National Payments Corporation of India (NPCI).

In India, Maharashtra holds the largest share in the Unified Payment Interface market.
In India, consumers are becoming more interested in using cashless payment at present days. Smartphone usage is increasing. Users are making transactions through various mobile applications to conduct payments. Besides this, retailers are also using cashless payment systems. Therefore, it is becoming easier for customers to purchase from offline and online shops and make digital payments. Additionally, digital transactions are processed at grocery stores, fuel stations, clothing and apparel, pharmacies, and restaurants. Hence, UPI remained the most preferred payment mode among consumers with a person-to-person, person-to-merchant. In online spaces, financial services, government institutions, and the education sector are witnessing significant market growth, which is benefiting the UPI market across the country. Among various digital platforms in India, PhonePe has led the UPI market over the last few years. Google Pay holds the second position in helping the market to grow. Therefore, these two digital platforms have been leading the industry across India on all key metrics including value and volume of transactions, registered uses, and merchant coverage. However, PhonePe and GooglePay currently own maximum percentages of the UPI market share respectively.
