By scheme, the number of debit cards in circulation was dominated by NETS, followed by Visa in 2014. In debit card segment, DBS Bank was the leading card issuer, in terms of the number of cards in circulation in 2014.

In terms of the number of credit cards in circulation, United Overseas Bank was the leading player in Singapore. Credit card transactions were encouraged by growth in payment infrastructure, such as POS and ATM terminals, and promotional strategies adopted by banks, such as cash back offers and reward programs. Credit cards in the country are primarily used by customers at POS terminals for retail purchases, rather than for cash withdrawals at ATMs. The credit card market is concentrated in terms of transaction value, with the six leading issuers accounting for a market share of 85% in 2014. In July 2015, The Monetary Authority of Singapore implemented new rules for credit cards to help credit cardholders who have difficulty repaying their outstanding debt.

The average charge card transaction value increased from SGD 168.9 in 2012 to SGD 171.8 in 2014, at a CAGR of 0.8%. The average charge card transaction value is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 1.4% during the future period of 2015-2020.
