Low Penetration to Drive Chinese Credit Card Market

Delhi, India (PressExposure) March 20, 2009 -- Chinese credit card market has grown at a rapid pace over the past few years on account of robust economic growth, rising income levels, growing middle class population and most importantly government initiatives. The total number of credit cards in circulation climbed to an estimated 150 Million by the end of 2008. Considering the current market turmoil, the credit card market in China is projected to grow at a CAGR of more than 28% by 2013, according to our new research report, “China Credit Card Market Outlook to 2013”.

However, the projected growth is almost half to the growth of more than 50% recorded during 2008 due to tight financial policies and job cuts. Despite this, low credit card penetration in China will be the major factor for future growth in credit cards, says the report. With over 1.3 Billion population base, credit card penetration stood at just over 11% at the end of 2008. In contrast, debit card penetration was clocked at over 100% with one people estimated to have more than one debit card. Huge gap between debit card and credit card penetration represents tremendous growth potential in the Chinese credit card market.

If we look at the credit card penetration at geographical level, most of the credit card usage is concentrated to the big cities like Shanghai and Beijing having majority of urban population. Semi-urban and rural areas still remain untapped, implying that the country offers immense opportunities to credit card players to exploit the untapped areas.

“China Credit Card Market Outlook to 2013” provides extensive research and rationale analysis on the credit card industry in China. The report thoroughly studies the current industry trends to facilitate clients to evaluate growth opportunities in credit card industry. Forecast in this research has been made considering the possible impact of recession on the industry. In this regard, the report will help clients to have proper insight of the current and the future outlook of credit cards market in China.
