Consumer lending continued its strong development in 2017 and for the third year in a row posted high single-digit growth rates in a rather mature market. From larger loans for an apartment to credit for a new fridge, car or sofa, almost everything was financed by Germans with a loan in 2017. Interest rates of around 2% for consumer loans from banks and rates up to 0% directly at the point of sale have largely encouraged this development and boosted consumers’ willingness to make new purchases.BRBREuromonitor International's Consumer Lending in Germany report establishes the size and structure of the market for ATMs cards, smart cards, credit cards, debit cards, charge cards, pre-paid cards and store cards.
