Mexico Cards and Payments Market Key Facts

  • Despite strong growth in electronic payments, cash remains the overwhelming choice for consumers when making payments.
  • Over the 2013-19 period, financial inclusion has increased from 34 percent to about 41 percent, boosting Mexico's appeal for the retail banking and payments industries.
  • The level of credit card ownership remained at an average of 30 cards per 100 adults between 2013 and 2019.
  • Debit cards have maintained their dominance with 83 percent of all payment cards as of June 2019. Debit card purchase volume will account for over 27 percent of total debit card billed volume in 2019, up from 18 percent in 2013.
  • Net interest revenue remains the greatest single contributor to total credit cards revenue. However, this should change in 2021 as the rollover rate decreases.
  • Visa continues to dominate the credit card networks market, both in terms of cards in issue and billed volume; Mastercard is gaining ground.
  • Citibanamex, followed by BBVA, is the leading institution in terms of both credit cards in issue and outstandings.
  • Traditionally, merchant acquiring has been carried out by the banks directly. However, in recent years, banks have developed merchant acquiring alliances to gain economies of scale and increase coverage.
  • In March 2019, a regulatory framework for fintechs was legally established, intended to improve both financial inclusion and competitive conditions.
