Currently, there’s no clear global leader in the payments gateways market. However, Big players such as Stripe, Alipay, and Apple Pay are vying for market share.

Recent high-profile acquisitions show a growing demand for payments gateways. On January 13, 2020, Visa acquired payments gateway Plaid signaling its interest in reaching new markets.
