Finally, a reasonable forecast for the mobile wallet. Here’s the problem

Parks Associates this week predicted that 43 percent of U.S. smartphone owners will be using a “proximity mobile wallet“ in one way or another by 2017, more than doubling the firm’s estimated usage in 2013. While NFC-based systems still struggle to get out of the gate, increasing usage of barcodes, the cloud, and Bluetooth will give mobile wallet apps a much-needed boost, according to Parks, helping developers and other players in the value chain figure out how to develop systems that bring value to both consumers and merchants.
