Press release from: Ken Research

Saudi Arabia Cards and Payment Services Market is expected

• The local population is expected to remain the key target consumer group in the future. Saudi nationals enjoy higher average salaries and have higher average family sizes compared with expatriates, thus leading to larger share of overall expenditure and transactions in the country.
• Cash is still projected to hold a significant share in Saudi Arabia payment services market in future owing to ease of use and less change in consumer behavior.
• Credit cards and debit cards will continue to dominate the financial cards market in Saudi Arabia. These two categories won’t leave any opportunity for other financial cards such as charge cards and prepaid cards in order to gain a strong position in the country, as a result of the strong competition.

Government Initiatives: KSA Government initiatives towards achieving financial inclusion in the Saudi Arabia have brought the country’s citizens under the digital payments landscape. As a result of which, people have started opting for financial services, retail shopping, travel and others via physical cards and other online payment methods and will continue to do the same over long term. Increasing demand for Islamic cards owing to its shariah compliance is expected to drive the demand for credit cards in near future.
Rising E-Commerce Operations in the Country: Entrance of E-commerce giants for instance, Souq, Cobone, Haraj, AliExpress and others have given a boost to online shopping in Saudi Arabia, thereby providing people with ease in buying products, variety of options and convenient payment methods including card payments to make an online purchase. Payment through cards is increasing at a positive rate in the Kingdom and is expected to gradually replace physical cash transactions into card payments as well as digital transactions. Besides all these advancements, cash mode is still expected to dominate the entire payment landscape in Saudi Arabia.
New Revenue Streams and Expat Banking: The banks at present earn on credit cards through the interest rate levied on the credit card volume of transactions and the annual charges of the respective credit card. The company should introduce special cards with special features and perquisites. These cards tend to have a higher premium for procurement. The target audience for credit card subscription should not only be limited to domestic population, but also to expatriates living in Saudi Arabia. This will assist banks to cater a wider population thereby, increasing number of transactions as well as transaction volume.
Analysts at Ken Research in their latest publication “Saudi Arabia Cards and Payments Market Outlook to 2023 – Increasing Penetration of Islamic Credit Cards Coupled with Rising Preference for Online Shopping to Drive Market Growth”, believe that increasing penetration of debit cards and credit cards will create a positive impact on Saudi Arabia cards and payments market. The market is expected to register a positive CAGR of 12.7% in terms of transaction volume during the forecast period 2018-2023. The market is further expected to be driven by the growing E-commerce industry, rising mobile phone penetration and government push towards financial inclusion.
