January 20, 2020


Taipei-based government-backed IT research institute MIC (Market Intelligence & Consulting Institute) conducted an online-questionnaire survey in September 2019 on Taiwan’s smartphone users aged 18-65 and the findings reveal that the popularity of mobile payments in the consumer group aged 46-55 increased 31.2% in 2019 compared to 2018, the highest among all age groups. “This is mainly attributed to the growing use of PX Pay among consumers aged 46-55 following the launch a half year ago as it stands on the second spot of their top mobile payment preferences, only next to Line Pay,” said Robin Hu, senior industry analyst at MIC.
