Market Data Europe & World


This chapter „Market Data“ contains various statistics and information on the card business.

The data is split into three main chapters:



34 european countries

In this chapter, PayComm provides the users with market information on 31 out on 34 European countries containing information on market structure, major players, as well as country specific payment services.

These 34 countries are a total of 27 EU Member States (after UK`s exit from the EU), as well as Iceland, Norway, Russia, Switzerland, Serbia, Turkey and the UK.

Due to the abundance of data and the special features of the German-speaking region in particular, we have systematically further subdivided the 34 country profiles into the two tabs:
