Payments in Brazil 2017: What Consumers Want


"Payments in Brazil 2017: What Consumers Want", report examines the consumer payments market in Brazil, considering payment cards, online payments, P2P payments, and newer payment technologies such as mobile wallets and contactless. The report also examines the main regulatory players overseeing the market.

Despite Brazils economic progress, cash remains the primary payment instrument as much of the population - especially in rural areas - still do not have access to basic financial services. However, payment cards are emerging as a substitute for cash, as the government and banks begin to provide basic financial access to the unbanked. This includes the governments policy for financial inclusion, the expansion of banking infrastructure in rural regions, and the appointment of banking correspondents. According to World Bank statistics, Brazil has made substantial progress in terms of financial inclusion, with the percentage of the population aged 15 or above with a bank account increasing from 64.3% in 2013 to 75.5% in 2017. While the necessary payment infrastructure is in place - with ubiquitous ATMs, and the highest proportion of POS terminals among its regional peers (24.8 POS terminals per 1,000 individuals in 2017) - consumers are gradually becoming more aware of payment card usage and benefits. Furthermore, growth in e-commerce and online transactions, and a shifting preference for contactless payments and mobile wallets, will drive growth in the payment card market at a CAGR of 3.68% in terms of transaction value over the forecast period (2017-21).
