China is the world’s largest payment card market in terms of transaction value, accounting for $13.3tn in 2017. This is followed by the US ($6.9tn), the UK ($1.1tn), Germany ($715bn), and France ($709bn).

Cash, however, remains a popular payment instrument among Chinese consumers, especially in rural areas, accounting for 63% of the total payment transaction volume in 2017. One of the primary reasons for the dominance of cash is a consumer preference to keep track of their day-to-day spending.

The government and banks have begun to provide basic financial access to the unbanked population by expanding banking infrastructure, launching new branches, and making efforts to change consumer payment habits. As a result, payment cards are gradually becoming more accepted, with their use consequently growing during the review period (2013-17e).

A rise in the economically active population and per capita disposable income, the growing popularity of online shopping, and the increased acceptance of cards at retail outlets have supported the growth of payment cards. The emergence of digital-only banks is likely to further accelerate a shift towards electronic payments in China.
