Retail Banking Market Dynamics: Taiwan 2018

Summary

The retail banking industry in Taiwan is highly fragmented, with almost 40 providers competing on very low margins. The current economic environment is unfavorable, and Taiwan’s average wage lags far behind other industrialized economies of Asia, such as Singapore and South Korea. The country faces heavy competition in sustaining itself as an export-driven manufacturing hub, forcing industries in Taiwan to keep wages low. And consumers have become very conservative financially. While deposits are growing the credit market has remained flat over the past few years, and is expected to remain unchanged in the near future.

  • Retail deposits recorded a compound annual growth rate of 4.5% during 2013-17.
  • The credit card revolve rate in Taiwan is very low, as befitting a frugal society with stagnant wages.
