Targeting HNWIs in Asia-Pacific Markets for Premium Credit Card Opportunities

FARMINGTON, Conn., Jan. 23, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- As economies have slowed in North America and Europe, many countries in the Asia-Pacific have grown steadily. As a result, the number of wealthy individuals in the region has also continued to increase and Asia-Pacific for the first time has become home to the largest number of high-net-wealth individuals (HNWI) in the world.

This rise of a small but surging population of wealthy individuals is particularly important to issuers of high-end financial products such as premium credit cards. The future of premium credit cards in Asia is undoubtedly bright due to strong economic growth and promising population demographics. Examining the current state of the premium segment in the region enables a deeper understanding of the status quo and strong strategic decisions for the future.

In South Korea, NFC-enabled devices issued by telecom companies are expected to increase the scope of mobile payments as government efforts and customer deleveraging will decrease the scope of credit cards. The card market in China is exhibiting double digit growth both in value and volume terms. In Indonesia, transaction volumes increased from 1.3 billion in 2008 to 2.3 billion in 2012. As the premium credit card market emerges in the Asia-Pacific region, the opportunities and features associated with these cards will grow in parallel, benefiting all parties involved.

Global Information (GII) highlights key research in the payment card industry:

Emerging Opportunities in South Korea's Cards and Payments Industry: Market Size, Trends and Drivers, Strategies, Products and Competitive Landscape

Mobile commerce transactions in South Korea are expected to record positive growth as telecom operators introduce NFC-based platforms for mobile devices. SK Telecom and KT jointly sold 250,000 NFC-enabled Samsung Galaxy Notes in December 2011 alone. Mobile operator KT rolled out NFC-enabled SIM cards in 2010 and South Koreas third-largest mobile operator LG U+ also rolled out NFC phones such as the LG Optimus. KT has estimated that the cumulative sales of NFC-enabled phones sold by all operators will reach 20 million by the end of 2012. Telecom companies are also replacing traditional SIM cards with NFC-enabled SIM cards which is expected to increase scope of card-based payments.

Meanwhile, an increase in household debt has prompted the South Korean government to introduce measures to discourage credit card spending. The government reduced the amount of tax deducted from credit card transactions and increased the level of tax deducted from debit and prepaid card expenditure.

This report provides a comprehensive analysis of South Korea's cards and payments industry.
