Payments in Singapore 2017: What Consumers Want

Summary

“Payments in Singapore 2017: What Consumers Want”, report examines the consumer payments market in Singapore, considering payment cards, online payments, P2P payments, and newer payment technologies such as mobile wallets and contactless. The report also examines the main regulatory players overseeing the market.

Singapore’s payment card market is one of the most highly competitive and attractive in Asia Pacific. The payment card market is overserved, with debit and pay-later card penetration rates of 1.9 and 1.6 respectively per inhabitant in 2017. Improved banking infrastructure, new product developments, higher awareness of electronic payments, and the wider acceptance of payment cards at POS terminals have led to increased adoption of payment cards. However, due to the mature nature of the market, issuance is set to plateau going forward. Providers will need to shift their focus to encouraging increased use of payment cards; this will be crucial in driving consumers away from cash, which remains popular in the country.

Electronic payments in Singapore have steadily gained prominence, and the country has invested substantially in building long-term infrastructure for cashless payments. Widely available financial products, a competitive merchant marketplace, and a transparent business environment are strongly connected with progress towards a cashless society. The adoption of contactless technology, mobile payments, and chip-and-PIN technology has also supported the shift towards electronic payments.
