Drei Studien zu den wesentlichen Herausforderungen im Bereich Karten jeweils aus Sicht von Acquirer, Issuer und Processor.
Despite uncertainties around global economic recovery, the card payments industry continues to show high growth rates globally. Card transactions continue to increase, driven by consumer preference for non-cash transactions. Cards are now increasingly being used for low-value transactions, and with significant growth in online and mobile commerce, card payments are expected to continue to show growth in the near future.
In this paper we explore how the merchant acquiring industry is undergoing a sea of change mostly driven by several factors: changing payment needs of merchants; consumer’s preference to shop online; a rapid increase in mobile commerce; and the emergence of non-banking players. Acquirers are also facing regulatory compliance pressures, and fraud and security concerns continue to challenge the industry.

Despite the ongoing economic crisis, cards transaction volumes globally have been increasing mainly due to strong growth in Asia Pacific, Latin America, and other emerging markets. Card transaction volumes are expected to continue to grow, with Brazil, China and other Asia Pacific regions being the main contributors. The average transaction value, however, is declining due to the geographic expansion of cards into emerging countries, and tapping into a low value segment–competing with cash—in mature economies.
This paper explores trends for card issuers in 2012. In terms of driving card industry growth, mobile and contactless payments are expected to be the fastest growing segments going forward. In addition, technological advancements and innovations coupled with fraud protection measures are expected to further drive expansion in the cards industry. With the increasing adoption of smart phones and ease of access to internet, consumer preferences have shifted towards mobile-based payments over physical credit and debit cards. More users are opting for mobile channels to make their daily payments, and to manage various aspects of both their business and personal activities. This trend makes it a high priority for issuers to protect these mobile transactions from any kind of fraud and security breaches.
