The Cards and Payments Industry in Singapore: Emerging Trends and Opportunities to 2020

Summary

"The Cards and Payments Industry in Singapore: Emerging Trends and Opportunities to 2020", report provides detailed analysis of market trends in the Singaporean cards and payments industry. It provides values and volumes for a number of key performance indicators in the industry, including direct debits, check payments, payment cards, cash transactions and credit transfers during the review period (2012-2016).

The report also analyzes various payment card markets operating in the industry, and provides detailed information on the number of cards in circulation, and transaction values and volumes during the review period and over the forecast period (2016-2020). It also offers information on the country's competitive landscape, including the market shares of issuers and schemes.

The report brings together the author's research, modeling, and analysis expertise to allow banks and card issuers to identify segment dynamics and competitive advantages. The report also covers details of regulatory policy and recent changes in the regulatory structure.

Competition in Singapore’s alternative payments market increased following the launches of Apple Pay, Android Pay and Samsung Pay. Domestic banks and telecoms operators are taking advantage of the trend by launching their own solutions. Liquid Group launched the Liquid Pay mobile wallet in November 2016, and in May 2016 relaunched Dash in collaboration with Standard Charted Bank, Citibank, DBS Bank, OCBC Bank, and UOB telecom provider Singtel.

Singapore’s payment cards market has recorded a strong uptake in contactless technology with all major banks including DBS Bank, UOB, OCBC Bank and Citibank now offering contactless cards. To further encourage contactless payments, UOB removed the restriction on transaction limits of US$69.1 (SGD100) for contactless payments in May 2016. Similarly, DBS Bank increased its contactless payment limit from US$69.1 (SGD100) to US$138.2 (SGD200) in June 2016. While, other banks are contemplating to increase minimum transaction limit for contactless payments.

In July 2016, Mastercard and the Land Transport Authority of Singapore (LTA) announced a pilot scheme whereby passengers can use contactless cards to make public transport payments, allowing the usage of credit and debit cards for fare payments. If the pilot is successful, the country would join handful of locations, like London and Sydney, which embraced contactless debit and credit payments on their transit systems. These initiatives are anticipated to propel contactless transactions in Singapore.
