The Mexican Payment Card Market

New research from Mercator Advisory Group overviews the payment card market in Mexico.

Mexico, a rapidly emerging market and the 14th largest global economy, is worthy of discussion regarding global payments markets. After a decade of lackluster growth, the second largest market in Latin America has shown strength for two consecutive years, during a time when many major global markets are still hurting from the ongoing economic recession. The country appears ready for fresh direction as the new government is determined to reform the country's financial systems to drive economic development.

"The Mexican market has been hiding in the shadow of other major economies," Terry Xie, director of Mercator Advisory Group's International Advisory Service and principal analyst on the report, comments. "People are accustomed to keeping Mexico low on the list of top international markets, and they overlook many of its advantages. But there is a good chance that forthcoming changes in the market will generate a market opportunity not to be missed over the next decade." 

Mercator Advisory Group's latest report, The Mexican Payment Card Market, overviews Mexico's economic development and banking industry landscape and the overall payment market, including the payment system infrastructure, overall payment behaviors, and the consumer credit market. The report also reviews the development of credit and debit card markets, card acceptance and interchange regulations, and the Mexican online payment market.

The report is 28 pages long and contains 15 exhibits.
