Banks and retail outlets in Morocco expanded their infrastructure networks during the review period. The number of automated teller machines (ATMs) installed grew from 3,629 in 2008 to 5,421 in 2012, at a review-period CAGR of 10.56%. The increasing acceptance of debit and credit cards at retail outlets and a consumer shift towards making purchases directly with cards resulted in an increasing number of point-of-service (POS) transactions during the review period. The number of POS terminals in Morocco recorded a review-period CAGR of 4.67%, rising from 19,000 terminals in 2008 to 22,802 in 2012.
During the review period, the central bank mandated the use of chip-based ATM cards, and EMV standards for credit cards, resulting in all leading banks offering EMV-compliant cards by the end of 2012. Moreover, the introduction of transaction alerts via short message services (SMSs) and the adoption of stronger authentication methods for online transactions resulted in a decline in card fraud at a review-period CAGR of 7.78%, from MAD31.0 million (US$4.0 million) in 2008 to MAD22.4 million (US$2.6 million) in 2012.

1) Icelands Cards and Payments Industry
Iceland’s card(http://www.researchmoz.us/emerging-opportunities-in-icelands-cards-and-payments-industry-market-size-trends-and-drivers-strategies-products-and-competitive-landscape-report.html) payments channel exhibited negative growth during the review period (2008–2012), declining at a CAGR of -2.49%, from 796,456 cards in 2008 to 719,950 cards in 2012. This can be attributed to the banking crisis that occurred in the country during 2008–2011. Over the forecast period (2013–2017), the channel is expected to register marginal growth at a CAGR of 1.85%, rising from 737,259 cards in 2013 to 793,275 in 2017. Despite numerous challenges such as the banking crisis, global economic slowdown, bankruptcy of major banks and currency depreciation, Iceland’s economy recovered from 2010 onwards.

The debit and credit card categories, however, grew at a healthy pace during the review period.
