Debit Card Trends in the Asia-Pacific Region

Mercator Advisory Group Releases New Research, Debit Card Trends in the Asia-Pacific Region

Mercator Advisory Group releases a new research report that examines how financial inclusion, payment legacy, COVID-19, the regulatory environment and other influences are effecting the trends for debit cards in seven countries.

Mercator Advisory Group released a new report titled Debit Card Trends in the Asia-Pacific Region and finds that debit card use in the region is far from monolithic. Countries such as Australia and Japan have some similarities to the North American debit market, with a high degree of financial inclusion and a long history of card use. In contrast, countries such as China, India and Indonesia have relied primarily on cash until very recently.

”We find some interesting trends in debit card adoption in each country. Those nations that have been primarily cash based societies are moving towards mobile based solutions supported by QR codes at the point of sale at an incredible pace. This approach also supports another trend; the preference for local networks with technology and data that never leave the country,” comments Sarah Grotta, Director, Debit and Alternative Products Advisory Service at Mercator Advisory Group and author of the report.

This report has 17 pages and 7 exhibits.
