Summary

The Indian cards and payments market registered significant growth during the review period (20072011) as combined card volume recorded a growth of 28.6% in 2011 over figures from 2010. Changing lifestyle demographics, the need for more sophisticated products, the increasing popularity of online shopping and increases in per capita disposable income supported the growth of this market. During the review period, the cards and payment industry increased at a CAGR of 27.67% in volume terms.

The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) has established a set of operating guidelines for the issuing of credit, prepaid and debit cards in India under the Payment Systems and Settlements (PSS) Act of 2007. Revised PSS Regulations in 2008 detailed the requirements that must be met for the authorization of payment systems, instructions on payment types and a framework for determining standards. A large section of the Indian population remains unbanked (according to 2011 RBI estimates, around 485.9 million of the total Indian population remained unbanked) and relies heavily on cash transactions. Out of the total unbanked population, 41% live in urban areas and 59% reside in the rural area. RBI regulations relating to financial inclusion mean that banks are presented with a significant opportunity to target and market their prepaid cards products, especially in rural areas.
