  • Published Date: September 2017 + Update Q2 2021

Asia-Pacific has overtaken North America to become the leading global region in terms of credit card billed volume thanks to a decade of extraordinary growth in China. And with other markets like India, Indonesia and the Philippines primed to follow China's lead, the future looks bright for the region.

Yet challenges remain for the acquiring industry. Alternative payment methods are thriving in the region thanks to the proliferation of smartphones and the explosion of e-commerce and traditional players risk being left behind. Meanwhile, a diverse range of payment cultures and regulatory demands make regional expansion difficult.

Verisk Financial Research's comprehensive report on merchant acquiring in Asia-Pacific contains industry-leading data on 16 markets in the region and identifies regional trends in the acquiring landscape.
