Cards, Payments & Consumer Banking

Author: Lafferty Research

Publishing date: February 2018

A comprehensive overview of the cards, payments and consumer banking market in Mexico.

Mexico Research Summary Highlights

  • While the level of financial inclusion has increased from 24 percent in 2010 to 52 percent in 2017, Mexico lags behind almost every other market in the region by this measure.
  • At 22 percent, credit card outstandings accounted for a relatively high proportion of total consumer credit in 2017.
  • Debit cards accounted for 81 percent of all payment cards at the end of 2017.
  • The level of credit card ownership has steadily increased from 28 cards per 100 adults in 2010 to 36 in 2017.
  • Debit card purchase volume accounted for 23 percent of total debit card billed volume in 2017, up from 13 percent in 2010.
  • Net interest revenue is the greatest single contributor to total credit cards revenue, but the proportion has fallen from 54 percent in 2010 to 36 percent in 2017. This is due to a decrease in the rollover rate.
