  • Lithuania became an EU member on January 1, 2015. Its accession means Lithuania is required to adopt the Single Euro Payments Area (SEPA) framework, and other regulations that apply to all member states, such as the capping of interchange fees for credit and debit cards at 0.3% and 0.2% respectively. SEPA requirements came into effect in Lithuania from January 2016, which is anticipated to have a major impact on profitability in Lithuania’s payment cards market over the forecast period (2015–2019). With interchange fee revenues reduced, issuers are likely to cut card offerings and consumer benefits, and look at new ways to generate revenue.
  • To protect consumers from financial burden, Lietuvos Bankas, the central bank of Lithuania, amended the responsible lending regulations (RLR) in November 2015. According to the new guidelines, the maximum monthly credit repayment amount cannot be more than 40% of the borrower’s monthly income, and the maximum maturity of credit cannot exceed 30 years. The regulation was introduced following a survey conducted by the central bank of Lithuania in January 2016, according to which 75% of families with an income below US$388.8 (EUR350) were indebted to credit issuers, and 71.8% of indebted families were unable to save in the last half-quarter of 2015. The RLR regulation requires card issuers to assess borrowers’ credit repayment capabilities before issuing credit cards. These responsible lending practices are expected to positively affect the credit card market over the forecast period.
  • Banks are also making concentrated efforts to promote electronic payments among consumers. For instance, Swedbank levied higher fees on cash transactions in July 2013, and encouraged customers to carry out daily transactions electronically. As of March 2016, Swedbank’s consumers were charged 0.03% of the total amount – a minimum of US$0.97 (EUR0.87) – to deposit cash in their own bank accounts. In contrast, the bank did not charge any fee on transactions such as online inter-bank fund transfers and utility bill payments. The rising use of electronic payments is expected to drive use of products such as debit cards.
