The modern e-wallet market in Vietnam will continue to surge and is expected to reach 50 million active users by July 2024, according to experts.

These top six service providers currently serve at least 99% of the market.

Based on their estimates, Robocash Group said that the e-wallet market in Việt Nam will already have 50 million active users by July 2024. This will further grow to 100 million users by May 2026 and 150 million by July 2030 respectively.
Robocash analysts have observed a massive increase in the number of active users in the last four years or an impressive increase of 330 percent. E-wallet users grew from 12.3 million to 41.3 million.
