Turks to Swipe Credit Cards More than Debit Cards

Delhi, India (PressExposure) February 12, 2009 -- According to the recent research report “Turkey Banking Sector Forecast to 2012” by RNCOS, the increasing preference for cash-less transaction and availability of various card products will fuel the usage of financial cards in future in Turkey. Also, the rising tendency of credit repayment among consumers will drive the circulation of financial cards in coming years.

Credit cards will see a more favorable scenario in coming times. The rising circulation of credit cards will outpace the growth rate of debit cards in circulation during 2009-2012. The number of credit cards in circulation is anticipated to grow by around 11% as compared to just 4% in case of debit cards.

Like global trend, the debit and credit cards marked considerable annual increase in Turkey. The number of credit cards, which was 32.4 Million by the end of 2006, rose by 15.1% by the end of 2007 reaching 37.3 Million. The number of debit cards in the same period reached 55.5 Million with an increase of 3.7%. Due to the widespread use of debit and credit cards, the number of Point-of-Sale (POS) terminals and ATMs has been increasing continuously in recent years, says the report.
