Key Highlights
Germany is one of Europe's largest payment cards markets, and is the third-largest in terms of annual card transaction value. It is still far from being recognized as a fully mature market, however, as the average number of monthly card transactions by consumers in Germany was 2.5 in 2014, much lower than France (9.4) and the UK (6.5). The German credit card market is anticipated to be affected negatively by the interchange fee cap at 0.3%, especially for banks that issue Visa and MasterCard-brand credit cards. These banks are anticipated to witness severe revenue erosion and to compensate, banks are anticipated to increase annual fees or reduce reward benefits to credit cardholders, limiting credit card market growth potential. NFC-based mobile payments are gradually gaining prominence in Germany, as retailers and mobile operators actively promote NFC technology to improve their business. Consumer preferences for secure payment services that allow them to purchase products are also gaining ground in Germany.
