PYMNTS:银联领先全球卡片市场
2017-07-18


  知名支付类媒体PYMNTS7月17日发布报道《银联领先全球卡片市场》,称Mastercard和Visa在全球卡片市场所占的份额正被银联篡取。根据权威支付类调研机构RBR发布的研究报告显示,全球支付卡的数量在2016年增长了8%,达140亿张,而银联正成为最大的支付方案提供商。RBR表示,去年银联卡的市场份额已扩展至43%,超越了Visa和Mastercard,到去年年底,银联卡全球发行累计超过60亿张。

  此外,报道还采访RBR的发言人表示:“一旦国际支付方案提供商取得中国国内的经营许可证,银联想要保持其较高的全球市场份额可能会变得很难。因此,银联需要持续积极拓展国外业务,以中和其在中国市场内的竞争。”

  报道原文如下:

UnionPay Leading The Pack In The Global Card Market

Mastercard and Visa are losing market share to UnionPay when it comes to the global cards market. That’s according to new research from RBR, which announced news in a press release late last week that the global card market has increased to 14 billion cards and that UnionPay is becoming the largest payment scheme.

According to RBR, the number of payment cards across the globe jumped 8 percent in 2016 to 14 billion. The fastest-growing market was Asia Pacific, with growth being driven by financial inclusion efforts. China contributed the most in the rise in card numbers. RBR is predicting the number of cards worldwide will hit 17 billion by 2022, led by Asia Pacific, the Middle East and Africa, given many people in those regions still don’t have a payment card. 

RBR says UnionPay increased its share of the market to 43 percent last year, extending its lead over both Visa and Mastercard. UnionPay has been the largest scheme globally for cards since 2010, and by the end of last year, more than six billion UnionPay-branded cards existed. The three collectively control 80 percent of the market with American Express, Diners Club and JCB, Discover and domestic-only private label cards making up the rest of the market. 

RBR did note that UnionPay is still largely a domestic scheme, with less than 1 percent of its cards issued outside China. It is expanding into new markets, however. The company is likely to face more competition from Visa and Mastercard, both of which are aiming to enter the Chinese market. 

“UnionPay may struggle to maintain its high global share once the international schemes obtain domestic licences to operate in China. It will increasingly look to expand its business abroad to counteract competition in its home market,” said RBR’s Daniel Dawson, in the release.
