Key Highlights

Several factors are hampering opportunities in the Australian payment cards market. The countrys economic and housing market situation is driving consumers to be more cautious on spending. Additionally, the vast range of products and brands mean that banks are competing on price, which is a difficult strategy to maintain.

The number of credit cards in issue has been growing year on year since 2005; however, growth has been decreasing each year, and this trend is becoming more noticeable. Over the period, the number of credit cards in issue grew by just 1.8% to 20.2 million cards, with the average Australian holding 0.9 credit cards.

As growth slows, issuers have resorted to aggressive pricing to compete, with tactics such as an introductory 0% balance transfer offer extremely popular. The market has become so competitive that most issuers offer an introductory 0% interest balance transfer. Some have gone as far as packaging other additional incentives to compete in the market.
