Over the last few years, the mobile and wireless market has been one of the fastest growing markets in the world and it is still growing at a rapid pace. According to the GSM Association and Ovum, the number of mobile subscribers exceeded 2 billion in September 2005, and now (2009) exceeds 2.5 billion (of which more than 2 billion are GSM)GSM AssociationOvumGSM iCom iCom®
According to a study by financial consultancy Celent, 35% of online banking households will be using mobile banking by 2010, up from less than 1% today. Upwards of 70% of bank center call volume is projected to come from mobile phones. Mobile banking will eventually allow users to make payments at the physical point of sale. "Mobile contactless payments” will make up 10% of the contactless market by 2010.  Another study from 2010 by Berg Insight forecasts that the number of mobile banking users in the US will grow from 12 million in 2009 to 86 million in 2015. The same study also predicts that the European market will grow from 7 million mobile banking users in 2009 to 115 million users in 2015Celentonline bankingpoint of salecontactless payments Berg Insight
Many believe that mobile users have just started to fully utilize the data capabilities in their mobile phones. In Asian countries like India, China, Bangladesh, Indonesia and Philippines, where mobile infrastructure is comparatively better than the fixed-line infrastructure, and in European countries, where mobile phone penetration is very high (at least 80% of consumers use a mobile phone), mobile banking is likely to appeal even more.mobile phonesIndiaChinaBangladeshIndonesiaPhilippinesEuropean

Migrant remittances provide the most direct, immediate, and far-reaching benefit to overseas workers, their families, and their countries of origin. Despite the social and other costs of migration, many families of overseas workers, particularly those in the low-income sectors, rely on remittances as the major- if not, the main or primary source of funds for their basic or daily needs. Annual remittances to developing countries more than doubled between 1988 and 1999, pushing officially reported remittances approximately 20% higher than official development assistance. Between 1995 and 1999, three of the top 15 developing countries in terms of remittances received were from Asia – India, Philippines, and Thailand.

Most of the Filipino companies now engaged in money transfers started as cargo companies, quite a few still handle cargo and remittance transactions for Filipino overseas. In the succeeding years, Filipino companies were established to concentrate purely on remittance services. Several companies, including I-Remit, Inc. and LBC Express, Inc are considered significant players in the industry, handling remittance volumes ranging between US$25 million and US$ 500 million each annually. These companies have longer business hours than formal institutions, are nearer and more accessible to remitters, and offer banking services to remitters through their partnership with banks.
TYPES OF TRANSFER MECHANISMS The table below compares different types of transfer mechanisms offered by banks and nonbank institutions in the US, indicating the price, speed of delivery, and whether the product requires a deposit account for the remitter and the beneficiary. The comparison suggests that the credit-to-account system offered by Philippine banks is the most competitive in cost and speed. The comparison exclude foreign exchange spreads, which usually range from 1% to 1.25%. However, some international money transfer companies have spreads that range from 2% to 2.7%
Certain characteristics of these transfer mechanisms bear emphasis: A) First, most of the products do not require bank accounts for the beneficiary. As such, the product performs simply as a remittance mechanism without introducing remitters and their families to banking, savings, investment, or other financial products and services. B) Second, the somewhat low usage of door-to-door services might be attributed to the greater use of ATM and other low-cost banking products heavily marketed by banks. Nonetheless, door-to-door services will continue to be used as long as some remote areas are underserved by banks. C) Third, transfer fees from the US to the Philippines involving the payment of proceeds in US dollars are higher than when proceeds are paid in pesos, due to the absence of a foreign exchange spread on the dollar-to-dollar transaction. However, these costs are still lower than what remitters have to pay US banks, which is US$35 – $45 compared to US $6-$15 if done through Philippine banks.
