KEY DATA FINDINGS
2021 DEVELOPMENTS
  • First signs of recovery for credit cards thanks to attenuated restrictions and the recovery of consumption in non-grocery retailing
  • Traditional distrust about credit, skyrocketing debt consolidation and national tendency to save rather than borrow during a crisis limits the number of credit cards
  • Battle rages between BPCE and BNP in issuers while Groupement des Cartes Bancaires in operators does not enjoy the same improvement as it has in debit cards

PROSPECTS AND OPPORTUNITIES
  • Despite a progressive recovery in percentage terms, credit cards unlikely to reach pre-pandemic levels before 2026 other than in the number of transactions
  • Astonishing breakthrough likely of both existing and new online players which are revolutionising debit cards
  • More traditional personal credit cards and dual charge cards come at the expense of revolving credit
