Summary

The South Korean card payments channel registered growth during the review period (2009–2013) posting a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 4.22% to reach 294.4 million cards in circulation by the end of 2013. The card payments channel valued KRW986.0 trillion (US$899.5 billion) in 2013. Changing lifestyle demographics, the increased popularity of online shopping and higher disposable income per capita supported the growth of the volume of cards in circulation. The debit card category occupied the largest share and grew at a review-period CAGR of 4.19%. Over the forecast period (2014?2018) the debit card category is expected to post a CAGR of 1.84%. The credit card category occupied the second-largest share at a review-period CAGR of 2.82%. The credit card category is expected to register a forecast-period CAGR of 1.80%. An increase in household debt burden has prompted the South Korean government to introduce measures to discourage credit card spending.

The government reduced tax deductions on credit card transactions and increased tax deductions for debit and prepaid cards. During the first three quarters of 2011, merchandize credit valued KRW1.6 trillion (US$1.44 billion), whereas during the first three quarters of 2012, that value was reduced to KRW0.1 trillion (US$90 million). Spin-off credit card units are expected to increase competition over the forecast period. Many banks and non-bank firms opt for spin-off credit card firms in association with existing competitors such as telecom operators.
